System A didn’t give me much to crow about for November; It ended the month flat at +0.5%. The system started the month out with some nice gains, booking over +8%, but then was spanked by the market mid month and gave them all back. The last two weeks of the month offered the system very few trades and it sat on the sidelines for nearly seven straight trading days.
My head was spinning as I walked to the car after my conversation with James; The idea of using one’s PC to analyze and trade the market in a completely automated fashion was very appealing to me.
Why? Because Automated Trading not only provides a path to grow one’s wealth; It also presents your inner geek with the opportunity to delve into aspects of Artificial Intelligence and Bio-Inspired Algorithms (neural networks, genetic algorithms, genetic programming, reinforcement learning, fuzzy clustering, vector quantization, etc). Put more plainly: You get to play with cool stuff while earning some nice coin. It doesn’t get any better than that!
