  4. Of course it is. Everyone wants to take the easy road. If there was any convincing evidence, there wouldn't be a need to slave away in front of historical price data.

    I don't want to start a war over TA. Lo did attempt to quantify patterns like head and shoulders.

  9. I recall an Andrew Lo lecture I found very useful in understanding efficient markets and such.

    Rather than abandon charts, try trading something else. I chose the NQ over the ES years ago and have never had reason to regret it. The NQ is volatile, it's directional, it's predictable, and it moves.
