Poll: Are you profitable? Mechanical VS Discretionary

Discussion in 'Strategy Building' started by Nana Trader, Jun 6, 2003.

  1. I plan to start trading again. My style is discretionary.
    I wanted to see the ratio of profitablity between these
    two style, and see if i have to be on sideline for sometime
    to make mechanical trading before i trade again.

    I am making profit paper trading 300shares block, and regain
    confidence in myself. But i never backtested my strategy because i do not know how to backtest my strategy.
