Has anyone tried this and succeeded? I've developed an algorithm for the ES and have had 8 months of profitability with a gain of 196% and a max drawdown of 26%. I've been optimizing it and it could have been even better. Clearly, if I can continue at that rate, I won't necessarily need a job, but I'm wondering if I could land one using that as my "resume". It'd be nice to trade OPM, so I could put even more emotional distance between myself and the outcomes. Also, having the technical resources of an established firm behind me would enable branching out into other markets, which I am dipping my toe into now. The algorithm "should" work in any market which fluctuates, which is pretty much all of them, although, of course, that needs to be verified.
