Q&A by Don Bright


In STOCKS & COMMODITIES’ October 2003 Q&A column, in answer to the question regarding “several strategies,” you said that people will have a tough time if they stick to one or two trading styles. I agree that we should not lean on systems that are performing the best in the current market environment. But if I have tested a system for a long period of time and if it gives good net results, then can I not lean on that system for trading? Why is it necessary to run two or three systems concurrently? — Gomu Vetrivel

Interesting question. First off, there is no system that will work for any protracted period of time. I have seen and used many systems over the years, and what worked last year obviously won’t work now. Volatility has plummeted from above 50 to below 10, so it is safe to assume that any system developed using old data will have a tough time.
