Topic: “Understanding Trading Systems and Robots”
Description: If you have been looking for a better trading edge you most likely have looked at several “off the shelf” trading systems and Electronic Assistants (Trading Robots). If you have invested your money in using someone else’s trading system or EA you most likely have not seen the kind of gains you had expected. It doesn’t have to be that way.
In this webinar I’ll be showing you often over-looked facts about Trading Systems and Electronic Assistants (Trading Robots) that will help you get more from your trading. It’s not as simple as “turning the system on and letting it run” If it were that simple, computers and EA’s would have replaced live trading a long time ago.
The first fact you need to understand is that if a system or robot was really that good you as a retail trader would not have access to it. Institutional and professional traders invest a lot of time and money into their trading systems and consider it a trade secret. If it has very good potential to find quality edges in the markets—it likely will not be sold or distributed to anybody. No serious trader would allow others to work against his own approach.
Therefore, most systems and robots offer only a limited ability to help you find reasonable edges. And you are often working against better systems used by professionals. You as the trader need to know what the limitations and probabilities of your system or robot really are and how the system was designed in the first place. Without a solid understanding of what the system is trying to do you most likely will not be able to use the signals as well as you had initially expected.
