- I learn to trade for a few months, so I don’t trade live yet. I don’t want to jump the gun. While I know that live experience can’t be substituted, luckily I don’t feel the urge to start trading live too soon without a great deal of knowledge about every aspect of trading.
I consider money management and proper position sizing a very important factor in effective trading.
I will do some Monte Carlo simulation for helping me as effectively set position sizing as possible, based on the main attributes of my prospective system; Reward/Risk ratio and Win/Loss Ratio.
I plan to trade primarily forex spot.
Because shorter term systems generally have bigger Expectancy, or more precisely, bigger Expectunity (Expectancy * Opportunity), I plan to make short term, intraday trades.
I will hone my skills regarding news trading, global macro, sentiment assessment, scenario analysis - this is a proven approach for decades. ;-)
