The Answer To Overtrading



"The answer to overtrading is not to discipline yourself to be less active, but rather to channel activity in creative and constructive directions." 

Every trader from time to time suffers from overtrading. In my particular case, when I am in a drawdown, I want to get back to new equity highs as fast as possible. That may lead to the temptation of overtrading, doing a few more trades than my trading plan tells me to in normal conditions. I found a good defense against overtrading and that is to study the markets further, do some historical backtesting and test slight variations on my systems. I just try to find some little things that are better than what I am doing at the moment, and then have the patience to wait for those trades to come along and be able to climb back up to all time highs.

YTD Performance: Sharpe Ratio, Sortino Ratio

On the first 72 trading sessions of 2015 I have been profitable in 47 or in 65 percent of the trading days. That does not look to spectacular at first glance, but my Sharpe Ratio was an outstanding 4.01.

If You Are Not Making Money, You Are Doing Something Wrong

Successful traders must study their trading patterns. If you are losing money or even if you are not making money trading the markets, you are obviously doing some things wrong. 

In my daily trading Newsletter I focus regularly on this topic, the need to keep adjusting your trading strategies and routines until you are consistently profitable.

Trading: Best Kept Secret

Do you know what many of the greatest traders of all time have in common?

They just look at the market, and see what is working and what is not working. They just look at it, with no preconceptions, biases or distortions. And they play those patterns for as long as they are still working. That is probably the best kept secret about successful trading.
