    Would appreciate knowing what current or past members use/used a trading method that would best be described as holding a position from one to multiple days. Hopefully, they also do/did most of their analysis-using end of day data.

    Just looking for ideas to steal and try.


  2. I am sorry but I do not have an answer to your question.

    I with my teammates use a try and error approach. When we come up with an idea, we just try to think of its variations. This way we sometimes go somewhere completely different from the original ideas.

    > holding a position from one to multiple days

    If I am wrong, please correct me. But I've got an impression that you are thinking of holding a position from a day to, say 10~15 days.

    That is good but holding longer may also be good too. The longer a position is held, the less market fluctuations against your system may affect. Of course it is true that if you hold longer, you may end up losing more from one shot of trading.

    Everything has good and bad sides. But from our experience, holding longer is not so bad.
