Hi! Long time lurker, first time poster. I'm starting this journal to log my PnL in 2018, and gather feedback on my strategy. I'm currently testing my algo on a paper account and plan to go live in 2018. About me: Mid thirties, involved in trading for about 7 years. Used to trade Equities for an investment bank for a year but after that been mostly involved in the risk management side of things. Dutch. About my trading: Daytraded fulltime for a couple of months, did reasonably well and got extremely bored. Did about 5-7 trades per week, stared at my screen for the rest of the day. Decided to get a new job and automate my trading. This turned out to be a lot harder than expected. In the end the trading system I developed still needed constant monitoring, so wasn't that helpful either. Spend a lot of time improving my coding skills and started testing a new, completely autonomous system mid 2016. Goal was to paper trade it for 2017. Happy with the results so far. Finally confident enough to go live in 2018, with a small amount of money. Aim for 1-2% per month. About this journal: Haven't decided if I will post my actual trades, but will post my PnL.
