Well That Was Fun Whilst It Lasted

Got bounced out of Spain last night. The joy of systems trading is going long when everyone else thinks the world is about to end.



  1. Yes, while there may be some academic joy out of going long when everyone else thinks the world is about to end, I’m finding the reality is a level of frustration with having a system out of sync with current market conditions.

    • Its not only academic enjoyment it is also profitable. I have three long index trades running at present all are beyond breakeven and are running for free.

      There are a number of strategies to deal with this style of market.

      1. Filter out markets with excessive volatility.
      2. Diversify away from equity based markets.
      3. Cut position sizes dramatically so that you are still participating.
