Hi, I'm posting on this forum because I've developed a swing trading system that actually works and I can show consistent results (at least 25% profit per year) for the last 14 years. I know this sounds too good to be true but I can prove it and can show automatically generated spreadsheets covering the last 14 years. I'm certain that I don't have any bugs in my code and I haven't optimised my system on the data I am testing. I am a very experienced programmer and have good expertise in statistical modelling. I'm interested in improving this system even more and hearing input from others. My system can automatically email stock candidates that it identifies so if anyone would like to receive these for free then please drop me an email. The system I have developed has taken about 5 years of trial and error to develop and is actually relatively simple in the way it works. The one strange and counter intuitive thing that I have discovered, which I can back up with solid evidence, is that the system always makes a bigger profit if I use a time duration stoploss instead of a threshold stoploss. So for example, if I buy a stock on day 1, I would expect it to reach its target price within 25 days. If it doesn't reach this target within 25 days then I sell anyway regardless. This strategy always gives me better profit that setting a lower limit threshold where I sell if the stock falls below a certain value. What are your views on this? It makes me feel uncomfortable but 14 years of test data backs it up! I've also tested lots of technical techniques from the many books I have on the subject and I can confirm most of them don't work over an extended period. This includes candle patterns, moving averages, stochastics etc. Again, I can back this up with solid evidence. I look forward to your comments and hopefully an interesting discussion! Marek.
