DISCLAIMER:  Futures trading systems and commodity trading bear a high degree of risk. People can and do lose money.
Hypothetical results have many inherent limitations. Past performance does not guarantee future results. 

 

ACTUAL RESULTS SHOULD BE VIEWED WITH CAUTION, BECAUSE PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS. HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM. ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.

#091: HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED WHEN I SPILT THE BEANS

I know it's Wednesday… But… My friend Andrew from BetterSystemTrader.com wrote an amazing post about Mondays recently and I felt like sharing it with you, too. So I got his permission to republish it – and here it is, the post about Monday on Wednesday! :)

 

I hope you like it!

 

 

 

Happy Monday!

 

Actually, I used to think that statement was an oxymoron before I quit my corporate life.

 

And in fact, my hatred of Mondays used to spill over into my Sunday evening too, once I realised the weekend was over and I had to go back to corporate slavery the next day, but life is good now I’ve escaped that!

 

Anyway, Mondays can be tough, so I thought it would be nice to start the week with some stories of success.

 

Just over a week ago we had a group coaching call with students of the Breakout Strategies Masterclass, where I presented my findings analysing 78 (yes 78 – not a typo) profitable crude oil trading strategies.

 

By analysing a decent number of trading strategies in just 1 market, I was able to find some commonalities between what worked and what didn’t, including things like the best timeframe, the best type of market filters to use, the best session times etc.

 

I spilt the beans…

 

And shared it all with the Masterclass…

 

(well everything except the trading rules, that part was up to them!)

 

It’s been just over a week since that coaching call and already we’ve got traders sharing the results of their own crude oil trading strategies based on the research I shared, like this response from Al:

 

 

And here are the out of sample results for Al’s crude strategy:

 

 

 

And the best thing is, Al isn’t the only one…

 

We’ve got other Masterclass students posting their results in the private community forum too, along with their own research into what’s working for them.

 

James created 8 different strategies based on the research:

 

 

Being part of an exclusive community of like-minded traders is awesome, sharing our ideas, research and helping each other to succeed.

 

If you’d like to learn more about how Al, James, myself and the rest of the Breakout Masterclass are building robust breakout strategies (and join the private community too), you can get more details here.

 

Have a great week!

 

Happy Trading!

 

Tomas

Andrew Swanscott, BetterSystemTrader.com

"Tomas has been a professional trader for more than a decade and I have had the privilege of monitoring his accounts in action since 2006. His systems are performing as some of the best I have ever monitored and executed. I have been in the trading industry since 2002 and worked with many developers from all over the world. Tomas is definitely the one to consider."

Martin Lembak,

Systems Trading Expert,

MFRM, CAIA 

"Tomas is a professional trader, who for the last 10 years has specialized in developing trading systems. We have been tracking his trading systems for about 5 years and they generally show very robust, stable and above average performance. Striker is pleased to work with someone like him - a real professional with enthusiasm and deep knowledge of trading."

William Galwas, President Of Striker Securities, Inc 

"Personal consultation with Tom helped me to re-evaluate the complexity of my robustness testing and optimization processes. Plus, it has helped me with a specific plan on how to take things forward. It has given me some great ideas on how to avoid overfitting and make my testing more robust and provided tips on low hanging fruit in terms of the best markets to trade for intraday/short-term breakouts."

Craig Peters,

semi-advanced trader,

United Kingdom 

"Tom's approach to Automated Trading Strategies design, tests of robustness and portfolio diversification is really unique. He has been a professional trader for many years and the depth of his understanding of Breakout strategies and Market Internals is hard to find elsewhere."

Antonin Fisher,

Hedge Fund Manager,

Czech Republic 

"Tom´s systems and trading approach do really work and can bring good, stable and reasonable returns. I can highly recommend him as a teacher."

David Hruby,

"Tomas is truly an inspiring mentor and great trader with a positive life attitude. He has got very deep understanding of markets, breakout strategies, robustness testing procedures, and Market Internals."

Jan Lesanovsky,

Client, United Kingdom 

"As an experienced trader, I used Tomas´s consultation to get more clarity on best-practise robustness testing procedures, risk management, and portfolio management. He was quickly able to help me refine my current trading and system development approaches, and pointed me to really practical measures that I could implement immediately. I found Tomas to be not only extremely knowledgeable but very helpful and a great teacher. This has given me more confidence in developing robust strategies that work, and I would recommend his mentoring as extremely valuable for any systems trader."
