The wonky 3-legged stool of trading

The wonky 3-legged stool of trading

I’ve been doing some work on trading Mindset this week. It’s for the ‘Campaign Management’ module of my new strategy (more on that to come in a minute). Now traders typically put all their energy and effort into ‘Method.’ You know the kind of thing I mean: Method is the nitty-gritty fine detail of how […]

The Grand National Meeting Favourites – how do they measure up?

We’re coming to the end of March. The next major horse racing meeting will be Aintree’s Grand National Meeting.

See why ‘tactical’ strategies choke and die

See why ‘tactical’ strategies choke and die

Imagine: you’ve spent weeks, months even, developing a trading strategy. Your back-testing is complete.
