114 – How to quickly identify when an edge has gone

Last week we reviewed a technique Kevin Davey shared to measure the effectiveness of entries and exits using something he calls ‘the monkey test’.

This week we’re going to look at entries and exits from a slightly different angle:

We pick up the conversation talking about validating trading strategies for robustness, take a listen!
