In this session, Alan will outline the theory and the practical steps required to develop a robust trading strategy. He'll discuss such areas as: What makes a good trading system?  How do we know if one entry or exit is better than another?  How do we come up with a trading system that suits our personality and lifestyle, and meets our trading objectives?  Alan will also outline the process of investigating, testing and quantifying trading ideas - as well as pointing out some of the pitfalls typically made along the way. He will demonstrate the role skill and luck play in trading, and will show why some entries and exits work better than others.  He'll also discuss why just getting the market direction right is not enough to make consistent gains over the long run.
