I've been demo trading on and off for a long time now. I dont feel as though i've 'wasted time' because I actually enjoy it! However, after all of this time, recently im starting to wonder if it is actually possible. I know that there are people who do make consistent money through trading just using charts/TA, but im wondering if that is simply down to luck. If there was a coin flipping competition where you were charged commisions, there would still be some people in the 'winning circle' at the end of the competition. However, before I completely give up on the idea of actually making any money, I want to backtest various ideas. However, I dont know the first thing about programming. Is there anyone here who trades successfully who doesn't know how to write/test/backtest codes and strategies?
