I have a similar background as many people in this game, I originally worked in industrial R&D, lots of computing and modelling experience. Discovered the total insanity of makets whilst in the process of floating a company that made nothing, sold nothing, nor had any objective whatsoever than to be an "internet start up" during the dot com boom ! :cool:

Ive been trading full time since around 2004, mainly a TA based trend re entry system, based on oscillator divergence at S&R, but the last 2 years focussing much more on automation. Entries are random, but I apply a bias to position sizing using baysian classifiers to determine a directional bias.

I've been an advocate of random robots as an educational tool for years now. My whole development methodology is based on an evidence based TA approach and incremental improvement to random robots.

I cant promise to contribute very often, but its a pleasant change to see automated trading being discussed in such a civilised manner, and I wish you success.

Hi Zuppy,

Welcome to the community!

As you've no doubt already ascertained, I too am "an advocate of random robots as an educational tool"! It may be fractionally less obvious that I too have lots of computing and modelling experience. I started performing "backtests" on real robots way back in the 1970s for example. It may not be quite so evident as yet that I started trading, mostly part time, before the dot com boom and subsequent bust.

Thank you for your kind words, and I for one look forward to any further contributions you may be able to make here in the future.

Jim
