Abstract:

"This book examines the development process for choosing and using mechanical trading techniques in conjunction with trader psychology. Mechanical Trading Systems explores the dangers in system development and how to avoid them; how backtesting and forward testing of trading systems aids in quantification of price risk; and the methods of improving rates of return on investments without significantly increasing risk.

It also provides a detailed examination of the personality traits common to the three basic types of trader - trend-following (long to intermediate term), mean reversion (intermediate-term), and short-term (swing and day traders) - and illustrates how a strict adherence to specific types of trading systems can foster a psychological flexibility that will allow you to succeed in all kinds of trading environments: countertrending, choppy, or trending."--Jacket.
