Last night I read through certain parts of "The Disciplined Trader" again. Great book, I will often re-read certain sections to take in things I may have missed. Towards the end of one of the chapters I read a line that made me curious - especially in relation to the press-your-winners ideas and the idea of streaks. Douglas seems to be saying that certain CTA firms will track their traders performance and will allocate more/remove funding to/from the traders whose recent/current (depending on time frame) equity curves' display the classic market chart patterns. This idea stuck with me and I want to get a sense of what you guys think about this: - Track your equity curve and when it displays a bull flag or a base over base (insert whatever bullish formation), really start pressing your size until patterns of exhaustion and/or reversal start occurring. Do the opposite when your equity curve is doing bearish things. I would like to believe that what Douglas says is true - that the equity curve is a traders personal psychological profile at the time, just like a bull flag in the daily is a markets psychological profile, a bullish formation in your equity curve means you are about to experience a set of strong winners. Any thoughts/experiences or is this meaningless?
