Hi Kevin,

I had a quick question from your book; for the Euro strategy example, you had allowed yourself one month to develop a strategy based on the defined goals.

I was wondering how much time it took you to come to the final strategy and if you went through other ideas before the final published version?

Cheers!
Michael

Thanks for the question, and thanks for reading the book. I developed that strategy more than 5 years ago, so unfortunately I do not have exact numbers for that. I am pretty sure I went through multiple ideas and variations during preliminary testing, but I don't recall what or how much. Trying multiple ideas etc. can be dangerous if done incorrectly, as I describe in the book.

Thanks!

No problems, understand it was a while ago

I suppose what I was looking to learn was regarding the comment about maybe taking a 100 ideas to get a single tradable strategy (understand this is approximation), I assume this number includes iterations of a single goal?

So in a year would you be working with 10-15 goals?

Many who I work with aim for one new strategy per month. That is a good goal to shoot for. That might not seem like a lot, but after a year you'd have 12 strategies. And if you collaborate and share strategies with others, you could have a ton more than that.

Hope this helps!

Kevin
