After a TON of work, and the help of someone on here, I really have been able to successful produce 100% mechical trading systems, and the results have been quite good. However what I always wonder is how is it possible? How is it that the mutual funds and other large institutaions with TONS of resources can't beat the market? Why can't they hire the smartest people on the planet? I, whom I don't consider the brightest crayon in the box is able to beat the market, granted it took a TON of time to understand how to build trading systems that beat the market, but Just how is it that the big guys who all those resources can't find and hire the brightest minds in the world to beat the markets? It doesn't make sense!
