Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

The Strategy Development Process for Rules Based Trading Systems

I'd like to start a thread, where we'll discuss and cover the Strategy Development Process. I've chosen to post in the Psych/MM section because, many of the concepts and even the process itself is heavily dependent upon a trader's knowledge and discipline and understanding the process will better help you to have a "plan" and execute that plan.

Hopefully we'll get some great discussion and wisdom from some of (formerly BMT)'s experienced and respected members.

This thread should be lengthy, so here's an initial agenda (which I'll adjust with input).

1) The decision making process.
2) Trading Objectives (where we're trying to go and what we're trying to accomplish).
3) A real life strategy development practical exercise (where we walk through creation of a viable strategy from cradle to grave)
4) Process review and improvement (review our process and methodology and develop feedback to make it better).

"A dumb man never learns. A smart man learns from his own failure and success. But a wise man learns from the failure and success of others."

This thread sounds to my (admittedly tender young) ears to have potential up the wazoo; practical and actionable morsels and meals, strategic argument, tactical efficiencies, market psychology and philosophy..... but reined in by the need to contribute to a plan a system a trade... logic...and at a year old there's..... nothing.

Holy cow... just realized something.... I've been a member now 350-some days, almost a year, as old as the thread.....

.... and this is my first post.

crap, the irony of it all hit me and I forgot what I was going to say (wow, nice 1st post)

Aha, yes, I'm engaged in strategy/system development at the moment. Some new tools have arrived on the market that allow complexity, type, control via WYSIWYG far, far superior to what's been avail to now. I suppose I'll keep you posted, hopefully Monday evening, July 1, with my first thought and experiences.

BTW I'm looking for a hopefully ma but windows will do, flow charting software....
