    I'm still a fledgling trader. I use Matlab (mostly, with a smattering of excel) to code and test my ideas, although i'm considering moving over to the open source 'R' package. I'm a firm believer in that the output for a mechanical system should be a position size (not just in/out, long/short). I also believe a system should be adaptable (or atleast not too rigid).

    I started out in the stock market (perhaps like many) being a firm believer in fundamental analysis. After many failed attempts i realised it wasn't for me, but i still have the utmost respect for those who succeed at it.

    I found myself drawn to mechanical trading due to the ability to measure expectations. I think this appeals to me due to my engineering background.

    Although i have some small investments still, i'm mostly inactive at the moment until i can get comfortable with a system that works for me.

    I'm keen to join up with like minded people and share ideas, but for the moment i'm happy researching and snooping around for that elusive nugget which will propel me towards an early retirement. :)
