How did you get started trading?

Iíve always been interested in trading, and I realized a long time ago I wanted to be systematic in my approach. So over the last 15 years Iíve developed a lot of trading systems based on my own work. I took a hiatus from trading while I was trying to improve the analysis of my performance. I thought I had good systems, but I lacked the confidence to actually trade them at certain stages.

If you werenít trading, what did you do?

I started to develop a number of software applications that would allow me to evaluate my systems in greater detail. Most notably, I cocreated the system backtester that you can find in TradeStation. Soon, though, I got hungry to trade full-time again.
