Very happy to hear it. . .

I can try to coax some vendors out of their hidey-holes, but if all else failed, Kevin, I'd love for even just us to go toe to toe (though perhaps we can find one or two or three more takers on this forum), via a drastically scaled up competition where we pit portfolio vs portfolio, as opposed to single infrequently traded strategy against other infrequently traded strategy.

I personally believe (and I'm interested to know whether you feel the same) that its difficult to judge a trader, or his systematic trading abilities, or his specific strategies, until you have a data pool of at least a few hundred trades to look at.

I can remember when I first arrived here, the attitude towards mechanical trading seemed so hopeless and cynical. . . would love to see either (or both) of us prove that this doesn't need to be the case, and perhaps help give others hope to tread down this path with the additional confidence of knowing it *is* possible to have real success as a systematic trader, with a bit of effort, discipline, and help from others.

I'm still hoping I can find a brave vendor, somewhere, somehow. . .

I'll participate in the originally stated contest - a vendor face off.

A members versus other members contest sounds like the Battle of The Bot contest, which was discontinued for lack of member participation.
