Since this thread is seeing some action I will add my experiences.

As I mentioned I took Kevin's course back in May'16. While I have a lot of experience trading none of it was with automated strategies like this. At this point I have only entered the Strategy Factor Club twice, but am proud to say both of them passed. So right now I am trading 5 strategies live, the two that passed the club, Kevin's ES strategy many have mentioned, an RB strategy, and the final strategy is one I got from one of my passing club months.

After several months of a flat but noisy equity curve, the last 9 months have performed much better. Late in August I put in a new equity high, but then Hurricane Harvey hit and I took a large loss on the RB system and two of my equity systems got stopped out at the same time. So two weeks ago I put in my largest drawdown to date, but have already made half of that back.

I was one of the 27 people to attend @kevinkdog's event in Cleveland last weekend. Before going I must to admit to being a little burned out having spent a lot of time "flogging Tradestation to death" to quote a friend. Now I feel rejuvenated and am ready to tackle the next round of system development.

I took @kevinkdog's Strategy Factory course yesterday, on the recommendation of @numberjuani. The price was high (but comparable to other courses), so we had to decide if it was a worthy investment. I can honestly say this is the best money I have ever spent on trading. The focus is on building automated strategies and lots of them. This course is an extension of his book ("Building Winning Algorithmic Trading Systems").

I wrote about it on my journal, if you are interested: Attack of the Robots. I don't want to have to write it again, but here are a few highlights:
  • 8 hours of training, with Q&A throughout
  • A solid methodology to build ideas into automated strategies
  • Managing a portfolio of automated strategies
  • A ton of content, including tools and some ready-built strategies to get started
  • Kevin is brutally honest and as transparent as can be
The only downside to this course, or rather limitation, is that the code provided is in EasyLanguage, so any code provided would need to be ported to your platform (I am guessing Multichart users are okay). The course is still suitable for anyone developing algo trading systems, as it is not system dependent. The content applies to any automated trading system.

We have already been building strategies in TradeStation (with EasyLanguage) for years, but we were missing something. The missing something was the content in this class. The first two hours addressed a ton of issues (one of which is the 'quest for perfection'), which we will be integrating into our processes starting tomorrow.

This course has changed how we will do business moving forward. The course will pay for itself in money not lost and I'm sure in profits later. If you are thinking about taking this course, you can PM me and I will give you my honest assessment.

HI @vmodus Im glad it worked out. I had a similar experience in which just the first two hours where jaw dropping. Kevin does a heck of job outlining both what works, and what doesn't work. I'm 100% sure its the best money I spent in trading. Also, lets not forget he gives you strategies that are great and you can just get home, turn them on, and make the money back.

Thanks for the shout out, I really appreciate it. I do recommend a little caution and patience with the strategies I provide, though.

Thanks for the comment!

Yeah, we are careful to vet pretty much any new idea, strategy, or indicator that comes across our trading desks.

You can ask me whatever you want about the Strategy Factory, and I will give an honest answer, either here or PM. I don't work for Kevin in any way, shape or form....

~vmodus

Enjoy everything!

I can't speak highly enough of Kevin's Strategy Factory course. I am a recovering discretionary trader who learned the hard way that I am not equipped to make good decisions in the market place without set rules to follow. I knew early on in my trading that there had to be a way to automate trading rules and succeed in the market place but I thought it was all too complex and that I was way out of my league. That was before I found Kevin Davey on YouTube.

Keep in mind, there are thousands of hucksters selling BS on YouTube but when I came across Kevin's videos it was like a breath of fresh air because I could tell he wasn't trying to sell some BS strategy that made him rich. He was explaining how to do what I always wanted, which was test for myself and see the results of my own strategy development.

So far I have been trading live for 4 months and I have achieved a net profit return that beats some of the markets best returns on an annual basis. I don't know if this will continue but I have never traded with such confidence before. I will say that algo trading, like discretionary trading, is not for the faint of heart but several times when I thought I was going to lose on a trade, the very next day I achieved new highs. If I was discretionary trading I probably would have pulled the plug to soon only to take an unnecessary loss. This happened sooo many times before!

For me, Kevin has been life changing and I can't wait to see what the future brings for my Strategy Factory.
