The past few days have been rough on my open campaigns, most of which had been scraping the 1R mark in paper profits by Monday. One after one turned on a dime and hit my trailing stops which were still set to break/even. Could have been worse I guess and I should count my blessings as whipsaw during the summer season is simply par for the course.

I am delighted to announce the official release of my System Building Masterclass which represents a cumulative nine months effort to produce a comprehensive tutorial on building non-fragile trading systems that stand the test of time.
So I’ve decided to head over to the hospital tomorrow morning for a complete check up. Over the past few weeks I’ve been feeling increasingly exhausted while my heart rate has shot up by about 20 beats or so. In addition I’ve lost almost 10 pounds in the past month although I’ve been eating well. Your guess is as good as mine as to the underlying cause [stress], which is why it’s time to get poked and prodded.
My quant buddy Tony happens to be one of the most intelligent and hard working people I’ve met in my life. And before you quip that I should get out more often let it be said that I used to live & work in Silicon Valley until the Dot.com bubble burst back in 2000. So I have met my share of smart people and exasperating nerds.
