You are not there...

... having
• a positive expectancy,
• a working system
• programmed or not
• back tested or not
• 55% plus gains or not
• hundreds of hours screen time

BUT you face
• a new market field today (other than the past) AND
• you need to throw REAL money (yours or others) into the market...
• you need to PUSH the BUTTON (system or real time)
• your observance might overrule your strategy
• you might be pushing your stops further away
you know the whole story.

So having an edge is fine - but there is no proof either.
For the survival in the Future.

Good development!
