Remote Chapter Objectives:

To provide regional and overseas members with the valuable resource and the networking of a chapter meeting.

The Remote Chapter will operate similarly to other chapters although it is envisaged that most meetings will be online with the possibility of having an occasional face-face meeting if attendance warrants it.

Although first preference will be given to regional members, if numbers permit, any financial ATAA member will be welcome to attend. 

This meeting will be recorded and made available for members to access and review later.

Presentation Details

TOPIC: "Uses and Abuses of Optimization - The Most Powerful Tool That Most Traders Use Incorrectly"

Optimization one of the most misunderstood and abused tools in your trading toolkit.

The trouble is that the industry, literature and software are all set up to encourage poor optimization technique resulting in problems like:

  • Systems that look great in backtesting but fail in real time trading
  • Deeper than expected drawdowns
  • Lower than expected profits (or even losses)
  • The need for frequent reoptimization

BUT when you avoid the pitfalls of optimization you can instead create stable and robust trading systems that maintain profitability long into the future.

In this presentation Adrian will discuss the most critical optimization pitfalls which lead to trading disasters AND give you the understanding you need to instead create robust, stable and profitable trading systems.

For the last 15 years he has traded stocks for his family account using a portfolio of mechanical trading systems. He trades long / short across Australian and international stock markets.
