One thing I've noticed about myself. I don't really want to trade. I just want everything to be the same all the time and I can put it on and have faith because it has been backtested I don't need to worry about it. Do any of you idiot nerds work on systems that constantly evolve? It started with a hand over there on the trading forum who was complaining it was all going well with his trend following system but then when it started chopping he gave it all back. Of course, a low risk low life like me just wants to come up with a system that works in trending AND chopping markets. Do any of you fool around with evolving systems? It goes back to my question of reducing size when things seem to be going too well, and increasing size when the gods seem to be unnaturally against you.
