    Teach a Man to Fish – "Rise of Machines" version

    I haven't been able to spend time on this in past few days. I have some trades noted that I will share. Some days I couldn't track. Is there anyone who has historical data on pre-market opens for past week?

    Teach a Man to Fish – "Rise of Machines" version

    EOD Update 02-Jul-20 Another flat day. Typical behavior of trend following systems. There are many days with small loss/small gain. And then large days with wins. It is boring. It is tough. But it is possible to be profitable at the end.

    EOD Update - 24-Jun-20 Importance of following a system and discipline associated with it is showcased in days like today. It only needs 1-2 stocks to do well to make a day positive. The system kept us out of all Longs today on a day that clearly was bearish.

    That depends on how your execution logic is set up. On a bare SL-M entry orders, there will be slippages for sure. Accounting for them in backtesting is prudent and useful. I did mention a 0.1% of slippage assumption is fair and on conservative side. If and when I code this up for backtesting...
