‘Trading Systems’ Book review
In this book, Urban Jaekle explores system development and portfolio optimization for successful trading. Here are my 3 top learning points from the book:
1. The 5 stages of the hypothetic deductive method for a trading system –
Observation, hypothesis, prediction, verification and conclusion
2. If your system is net positive, it does not necessarily mean it is going to be
profitable. The inclusion of time filter for entries is a great insight and
consideration for traders to include in their trading system
3. Comparison of systems without exits vs with stops vs with stops and exits is
a great reflection point for traders to reevaluate their individual trading
system performance and strength – BOM strategy is a great example of a
simple yet robust strategy over 80 years!
I really resonated with the overall message of the book of building your systems on a strong logic and keeping it simple. Overall, a great book for review of one’s trading system and to integrate certain concepts to make the trader’s strategy more robust and sustainable.
