Why I trade multiple systems
By using a “basket” of momentum and range trade strategies I’ve increased my return on risk and smoothed out my overall equity curve.
I am an advocate of diversifying the markets I trade and the way I trade each market. I assume that I don’t know what strategy will perform best over the next 12 months or at any point in the future.
