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.

I wonder if as the Boomers go , the buy and hold mentality goes with them ....

maybe that is what is occurring and quant/hft is what fills the void , guess we'll have to learn to adapt....

But isn't it true that IF a method is based on a market phenomemon with is relatively timeless, the method if based on indictors can survive if the parameters of the indicators are adjusted to the changing environment. ( and in sorm form it is discretionary then :-) )

For example, trendfollowing and mean reversion strategies are very old and still working, yet the form they take changes over time due to new market participants and conditions.

So if a method with indicators is based on such a phenomenon it can survive, if the user adapts the parameters to the environment. When a method is based on some arbitratry collection of indicators which do not support/measure a good concept, the method will likely fail. At least, this is what I think within my limited experience.

I think you are correct....I probably could have said it better but you know what I mean
