I think today highlights two things for me:

1. This market trades less and less on technicals or fundamental data, and more on news than ever before.

2. Leverage cuts both ways. I highlighted the fact that I was surprised this system had a good Sharpe ratio given it's use of the doubles. Over time it has generated solid profits, but it always is frustrating to get stopped out.

I'm optimizing a set of long-only trading filters for the S&P 500 index that I'l post once I have finished the analysis. These are based on the index itself, so they could be played using a number of different strategies or instruments. Given the limitations to SF code, not all of them are directly translatable into SF, but I'll post the ones that are.

I think when all 3 happen at the same time you get a move like today....

The only thing you can control is the risk... that is it..

the only thing charts do is graphically plot price and volume over time.. those are the only facts you have, the rest is mathematical models of the facts.

its simple but the hardest thing I have ever done......LOL.... but I have never run with the bulls...GLT

Page one shows this filter has had 7 consecutive losses in BT.

2011 had a streak where 6 of 8 trades were losers starting around April but then the next 13 of 14 trades were winners.

As Kevin mentioned-sometimes we just need to recognize when a market is news driven.

Eman is dead on when he says the only thing you can control is the risk. I have played pretty much only pairs the last two to three weeks and todays move had little effect on my portfolio despite the large move in the indexes.

I did however start taking short positions late in the day (APOL, ESI, JCP,QSII). I am concerned a little with the jobs number tomorrow and a possible carry over, but I manage risk by position size and will add likely add to the shorts late tomorrow if the market spikes up again.

Kevin,
Was the STOCHASTICS %D(5,1,5) %D(5,1,10) the one that created the greatest number of potential profitable trades or is it possible that a different time frame for cross above/below in the oscillator might produce better results?
Just asking
Thank you
