    Has anyone tried this?

    Solas, how long does it take to do 137 stocks? Have you upgraded to a solution with multiple runs of the program? The software has been doing well and I'm satisfied but I'd like to decrease time it takes to output the results. I run it with 200 stocks at this stage.

    Has anyone tried this?

    This one looks interesting and in trying a demo seems quite accurate. I purchased another program from same company years ago and that was also interesting but due to new job I didn't devote any time and license expired. Has anyone tried the DQ option? Any ideas in general?

    Can anyone recommend a strategy?

    OK - so you say it is not. Just tell me where the mark-to-market gains of winners come daily after market close if not from the mark-to-market losses of the losers. Is anyone paying the winners besides the losers? If not, it is a zero-sum.

    Is backtesting on software strictly necessary to trade?

    Paper trading has exactly the same problems with backtesting since market dynamics can change immediately after you are convinced that you have a sound strategy. This paper in ssrn has in it two examples that demonstrate this problem. http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2810170

    Volatility collapse

    Now 15 days with a 1.5% range, still tight. Could the market be random as professors say and we just try to rationalize the moves after they occur? Nice article and the blog is worth following.

    Why do people want to trade Forex?

    The signal to noise ratio in forex is extremely low due to high competition. This makes most systems and trades random. On top of that forex trading is expensive despite assertions to the contrary by brokers. One pip for standard EUR/USD lot is $10. That is a lot. By the time you place a trade...

    Does technical analysis work or not?

    I think I will agree with that. Then it is not a science because science success is independent of the person that applies it. I found this article and it looks interesting. I do not agree with everything in it but the role of serial correlation is interesting and requires further investigation.
