May Special: Upgrading your Trading Plan through Visual Back-testing and Validation
Structured back-testing shows you how well your trading plan is likely to perform under different market conditions, and whether it needs modification before you put your hard-earned capital at risk. I have been conducting and refining back-testing of my own and others’ trading ideas for many years, and have taught these techniques as part of systems development at Golden Gate University. I have also introduced many students to back-testing concepts during the Wyckoff Trading Course.
A year ago I developed a new webinar series: Back-testing and Validating Your Trading Plan, in which I shared my insights and approach to visual back-testing. The course provided a great opportunity for individual-level R&D of Wyckoff Method trades and was a great success with the students!
This year I am offering this course again and, together with some of my advanced students, will be providing additional materials on developing filters and scans to expedite prospecting for some Wyckoff set-ups in your trading plan(s). In these FOUR sessions you will learn how to evaluate the profitability and expectancy of your current trading plan(s) as well as any new ideas in the future, and you will be given several examples of Wyckoff-based scans, which you can set up on stockcharts.com.
Upgrading Your Trading Plan through Visual Back-testing is organized in four sections:
First, we will discuss your current trading plans and trading routine; these sessions may include suggestions for potential improvements and adjustments to each plan presented. Students will have the opportunity to learn from others' trading plans, as well.
Next, we will discuss indispensable elements of visual back-testing, including how to set up an informative process, what to emphasize during back-testing, and what data should be collected and tabulated during the analysis of results.
Then, we will break for three weeks to allow you ample time to conduct back-testing of your current trading plans and/or new ideas.
Finally, during the last two sessions students will present their back-testing results, and we'll discuss how these can be used to refine the underlying trading plans for increased profitability. We will also focus on developing and refining filters and scans needed to identify some of the central themes of the trading plans' set-ups.
These webinars will be recorded and made available to participants on a password-protected web page for a full year after the course ends (i.e., until July 1, 2019), with an option to extend access for another year for a nominal fee.
Prerequisite: Completion of (Advanced) Wyckoff Trading Course or consent of instructor
When: May 24 and 31 (Review of current trading plans and back-testing data requirements), and June 21 and 28 (discussion of back-testing results, trading plan refinements, and filters/scans); all sessions will be conducted from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. (PDT).
