Any trendfollowers

Post by Chelonia » Mon May 22, 2017 8:33 am

Hi All,

I was just wondering if there are still some trendfollowers out here who may want to engage in a testing/trading discussion. What are you doing at the moment, how have you done over the last, lets say, 5 years. Just trying to get some discussion going as trendfollowing can be lonely and frustrating from time to time. 8)

It's hard to get excited about a strategy with only 1 good year out of the last 5. Probably why this forum has been so quiet lately. But, I suspect better markets are coming.

It's probably a good time to start that trend following system again if you're not trading through this drawdown.

I took my first system live 6/1. I've been testing and researching for the past six months. Seems like a good time to begin since TF has been a rough slog the past couple of years.
