“Instead of spending years trying to pinpoint the Holy Grail of automated trading which doesn’t exist, sit down and focus on gaining the experience you need to find TRUE success. Invest in trading education. Study your trading charts. Practice trading. Learn through trial and error. In the long run, gaining the confidence and experience you need to be successful will be far more rewarding than a fruitless search for automated trading systems.”
Markus Heitkoetter of Rockwell Trading
