Any feedback on this methlogy


yes, I have. I signed up over a year ago.
I backtested the system a few months - but I could not bring myself to trade it live. This is a swing system. Apparently the claimed winning percentage is quite high. IME it is like this: there is often a single big winner which makes up the whole losses of the week. If you missed it, well live with your loss.

The original programmer "left" the team and seems to only occasionally come back for public presentations. The weekly review is done by a different guy. Every week he reviews different instruments or time frames - of course, Currensys is profitable week in week out and you would have taken the trade at 3:30 am...

Regardless, the system is more or less 100% mechanical and if you stick with the rules religiously, you might end up profitable. Probably you become good at cherry-picking and make this system endurable mentally. I have not and am no longer interested.

Good review,

Thanks for taking the time to analyze that methodology.

Nothing is easy in this profession.

Very few stuff from vendors works for an individual trader right out of the box.

Even very successful methods need to be both personalized and individualized for each trader.

Not a small task.

I bought it 18 months ago

Hi fasttraxs,

Good to talk,

Yes I bought this system about 6 months into my trading 'journey'. It is 3 systems in one, a trend following system based on MACD, buying dips in an uptrend or peaks in a downtrend, a channel breakout based on Bollinger Bands and a mean reversion also based on BB's.

My experience? I learnt a lot, as I traded in sim and then live for a few months, but there is a fair amount of wriggle room in the decision making process. And for a newbie that brought a load of issues I was ill prepared for. It did give me an anchor to start clocking up the screen time and finding out about my trading personality and solely for that reason it was worth the money. But anything bought or not that gets you watching charts would do the same.

My results ran hot and cold and I could not figure out the reason for such erratic performance (I thought the issue was the system not me, oh how naive). So I embarked on a month or so of manual backtesting, which springboarded me into learning C# so I could backtest after coding the ruleset.

I have incorprated one of the three strategies into my trading and it's profitable for me. I must say though I've altered it considerably from the published version.

John, the contact there is helpful and did get me up and running regarding the basics. So there is support. I think there is also a trading room open once a week.

Well worth it for the educational aspects in my case. Again I'd say that any bought system could of done that.

Best of luck whatever your decision.
