Building Reliable Trading Systems: Tradable Strategies That Perform as They Backtest and Meet Your R
Traders have long been drawn to the idea of translating their strategies and ideas into trading systems. While successful trading systems have been developed, in most cases, they work very well for a period of time in specific markets, but perform less well across all markets in all time frames. Nobody understands this better than author Keith Fitschen—a thought-leader in trading system development—and now, with Trading Strategy Generation + Website, he shares his extensive experience in this field with you.
Trading Strategy Generation skillfully explains how to take market insights or trading ideas and develop them into a robust trading system.
