Your comments bouy me up no end JG, I dabble with the data out of a sense of 'he does so I should'. I say 'dabble' but it's about 20hrs a week.... But I don't have a 1000yrs worth and a PhD in stats so it's never going to be what gives me all the answers. I'm more your duck hunting type anyway.
I was concerned though that I only clung onto this view because, frankly, that's all I've got to go on....especially when my trading buddy is so incredibly staty.
Si, it's a shame our double act looks like Cannon & Ball compared to JG&PW's Morecombe and Wise but there's hope yet:)
It's true though, Peter and I can sit and talk trading all night and we often do. In fact, it is usually over a curry and we are still talking when the meal is over. We talk about all aspects from placing an order to the psychology and some of the crazy comments and messages we have received. I talk about crazy things I have seen and even crazier ideas I have come up with. Some are total nonsense and are short lived, others really do work and Peter is off analysing them. I know if I share something with him it will not be splashed all over the place and it is reciprocal. There are far better people out there than me, I have no doubt about that but I do know what works and I plough on accordingly.
I have shown stuff to Peter and it's been a WTF moment, it just seems crazy. I have no idea why it is happening, I just know it is. Peter will then analyse it, we'll check it again and then we get a grasp on why. I personally do not believe you can understand it 100% but if it works.....well it's duck hunting season!!
