Specialisation or Diversification?

OK, so you have a system to trade.
And you have gotten into the groove (rut?) of a mode of trading.

Do you focus excusively on that specific technique and expand your instrument set, to look for similar edge on more charts?
Or, do you seek different, complimentary methods of trading on a smaller set of instruments?

Do you specialise in one edge, and trade it for all its worth, or diversify your risk by looking for different methods, in case that one edge eventually fades?

(nice easy LONG on GBPUSD this morning, wasnt it? well, got a dry-throat from whether it would reject 2.0000 was a possibility, but you have to trade the rules, dont you?)

I trade about 15 of the major forex pairs on one system, live, use a demo acount and use discression for oil, and trade live using a different method on the ftse and dow. It is unusual that all 3 things dont work.
