I have seen quite a few posts here that ask opinions about systems and post some results whether in the form of an equity curve or stats. This is a total waste of time and unfortunately only shows the ignorance of the poster. Any idiot who has a rudimentary knowledge of a package such as Tradestation can create a system using optimisation on a single market that will show a respectable equity curve and produce great stats. As anybody who has been doing this any time at all will tell you however these systems will never stand up to real-time trading. If you put your money on them in real-time you will lose. So why post this shite? The only respectable results are those which have been achieved with real trading in real time. Unfortunately nothing else is of any relevance since readers on this forum cannot be sure how backtesting of any historical results were achieved. Sorry, I know this is a rant and really I contribute nothing here but over time I will.
