Indeed anyone can design a profitable trend-following strategy - it only requires a few simple rules.

But very few can actually trade such a strategy over the long term - thus missing out on the power of compounding.

I've always found it quite ironic/hypocritical, that when given the slightest chance of informing/reminding everyone about “Tech Trader”, you leap into action - yet you have completely stopped trading the system (last trade date getting close to 10 years?).

I've done some recent back-tests on “Tech Trader” and it's performance has been quite impressive post-GFC. The GFC draw-down is a mere blemish, compared to the returns that followed. Would you not have been better off financially, if you continued trading and scaling “Tech Trader”, rather than p*ss fart around with small scale discretionary trading (as you have posted after the death of “Tech Trader”)?

Looks good but keep in mind a few things:
-For fair comparison use the ASX Accum index is up 22.46% in the same period
-Brokerage doesn't seem to be taken into account. Estimating $15k avg position x 0.1% comm x 2 (entry and exit) x 50 trades = $1500 Comm
So you end up with 23.76% vs 22.46%
Your risk management looks alright so maybe you'll outperform during sideways/down markets

Thnx for comment SkyQuake.
I used data for ASX 200 index and index return during the pd was 16.14%
I agree on brokerage costs which is 1% for buying and 1% for selling.
I also met few fund mgrs in Sydney who agreed on above return figures.
Appreciate your comment.
