Its crazy because the first time I "understood" how HFT was operating was from one of your lecture videos. This was a good period of time before all the recent news.

This is I how feel about over-leveraging your account... a disaster waiting to happen.

Optimization isn't about running one backtest. Using walk forward optimization helps keep your expert advisor fresh.

85.28% of new hedge funds fail. That sounds a lot like retail forex traders!
There were fewer aspiring masters of the universe in the hedge-fund industry last year. Launches of new hedge funds (1,060) hit their lowest level in three years in 2013, and more existing hedge funds (904) went out of business than any year since 2009, according to Hedge Fund Research. What gives? One might think that...

Good question. USDJPY would be equally valid in terms of trading costs and liquidity. I naturally focus on EURUSD for some reason. There's no reason I can't expand later.

I'm enjoying my GBPJPY short, up 400 pips at the moment. I'm looking for another 400 once support breaks.

Thanks, +Danny McNamara . Patience is a lot easier when I just let the EA do all the work. I'm not disciplined enough to do all the work for managing trades.

I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could.
Introduction
I own a forex programming company called OneStepRemoved, but I really enjoy spending my time with family.  My hobbies include distance running, reading, learning new math skills for work (seriously) and pretty much anything that is either challenging and/or makes me think.
