Gave up on that years ago- as stated, I just want to see one working system. Seems like when you throw that out there, the common reply is what you said "develop yourself". Maybe one day someone will share one that they believe in.

Check out @kevinkdog's threads and webinars. He has good material and has openly shared a great deal.

But how do you qualify a "working system"? How many times do you interfere with the system and still call it a system? How many times do you adjust parameters, or adjust which days it trades, or change the signals (always gotta "add a filter").

Even systems are largely discretionary in the way the manager of the system controls it or alters it or directs it.

Something that is rarely discussed on (formerly BMT) for whatever reason is portfolio trading using an algorithmic system with predefined rules. I still believe portfolio trading is basically the holy grail.

Automate this, for example, as a starting point:


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
