A Robot Trader Becomes Human


So, what "takeaways" can we glean from this survey?  Here are a few:

Pure mechanical traders are more profitable than hybrid traders, who are more profitable than pure discretionary traders.

Traders who backtest their idea for more than 1 year tend to be more profitable than those who do not.

Trading is TOUGH.  You are more likely to lose than you are to win.

Thanks to everyone who participated!
