LOL.... You're a true programmer, Aren't you mate ?
let me guess, if you were god, the world would be code.. right ? LOL
I've been down this road and i can tell you this.
it'll do your head in
but, i can see that in your case figuring this out will be better than sex
so.... here you go
YOU NEED TO DO THIS
Firstly think about code... (The whole.... THE CAKE and THE RECIPE scenario) blah blah etc.
you know what i mean
Now.. when you get a gut feeling... REALLY REALLY THINK ABOUT EVERY ASPECT OF IT
and how you came to that conclusion
it will help you if you ask yourself this question
WHY DO WE CALL IT A GUT FEELING
is it because the feeling is in our gut
what does that mean anyway, because the idea actually comes from your brain
You will ultimately arrive at this conclusion
YOUR BRAIN IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.
it is capable of forming conclusions, and Very Accurate Conclusions (At that) based on a split second or a few seconds of exposure to certain things or patterns or events
and from this small amount of data it make a CONCLUSION
this conclusion is called a GUT FEELING
a few challenges you have to overcome
You need to understand that your brain factors in all your life experiences when making a decision.
this then goes into another big topic (Which i won't go there hehe)
Point is.. You need to codify your lifes experiences
Your other option is Get it to start learning all over again, but , that's painful and time consuming.
you see, when you code to get a program to trade and conclude A GUT FEELING for you, you are basing the code on your life experience
BUT THE CODE DOESN'T KNOW YOUR LIFE EXPERIENCE, there is no function or call to action of IF statement of THEN statement that will take care of this
or a recursive loop
because ultimately GUT FEELINGS are not COMPUTER LOGIC
a GUT FEELING does not follow A TRUTH TABLE .
Have fun with this, I personally did, but eventually gave up on it because
- I'm more of hardware guy that likes software from time to time
My priority was not to write a program, it was to be profitable
i also believed that if i traded manually i would learn more, AND IT'S TRUE.
i personally found that to effectively write a program that will trade for you, you have to first know
how to trade to begin with, because if you don't, you'll be programming incorrect functions into the program , and this will lead to loss
and then debugging it will be a nightmare
DEFINE HOW YOUR GUT MAKES DECISIONS.....
Good Luck with this
Be cool mate
