But that being the case, strategies often stop working which is why quants remain employed. So I would say my goal would be to focus primarily on one strategy to start and see how well I manage but expect that one day the strategy will stop working for whatever reason. 3) My advantage as I see it is I'm willing to wait for good setups. I can bide my time and avoid going in when I have less than (imaginary) 80% certainty. I am also technically inclined both when it comes to mathematics and statistics as well as programming. I learn quickly and have no reaction to stress. What should I lose or add here?
