As many of you may recall, I have been treating traders suffering from TA (no, not technical analysis, trading addiction, the other TA is impossible to cure) for many years now and posting therapy synopses here. In conjunction with my trading development partner Professor Joe Doaks, I have been offering clients rigorous and robust trading systems customized to their particular neurotic trading needs. We offer everything from income-generating startegies for lazy slugs who only want to know that their dividends were paid (the price could go to a buck and they wouldn't care, as long as they were assured their income stream in perpetuity), to high frequency scalping using one-second charts for the ADHD trading crowd ("Forty-five seconds in a trade is an eternity of agonizing anxiety for me!"). But lately I have been noticing a high recidivism rate of clients returning to discretionary trading after months or years of profitable systematic trading. I am in the early stages of understanding this peculiar phenomenon, and will report a preliminary hypothesis shortly. For now I have to go set up my seven systems for the day.
