Why is it that some traders can create trading strategies that perform well in real-time trading while other strategies fall apart?

How do some traders keep their trading strategies fresh and adaptive to market conditions while other strategies just stop working altogether?

Robert Pardo, president of Pardo Capital, author of the book ‘The Evaluation and Optimization of Trading Strategies’ and creator of the ‘Walk Forward Analysis’ approach, is here to chat about creating and optimizing strategies that are robust and continue to work in the future.

In our chat today, you will learn:

  • Common mistakes traders make that can cause strategies to fail in real-time trading
  • The dangers of traditional optimization techniques and how they can be reduced and even overcome
  • How to determine if a strategy really is robust, while keeping it fresh and adapting to market conditions
