I have yet to finish my revised strategy and plan, and have not yet even embarked on any EA, RPA. I don’t even know how to backtest data automatically, so in that respect, I am a newbie. And I am in no hurry either. I re-opened a trading account last September and deposited funds, and haven’t touched it yet. If this were my first time around, I would be guilty of analysis paralysis. But I have proven to myself that I have the required patience this time around. Given that the financial commitment is currently less than 1% of our assets, and that I still have the day job(s), it is not surprising I have taken this long. Other stuff (life) gets in the way. My current (and probably future) approach to trading is more an inter-generational thing than anything else. Being over 60, this is a matter of readjusting asset allocations more than dreaming whether Forex trading can produce an income on which our future base costs rely. It’s a mind game for me. I know I will succeed. I just don’t know how well I will succeed. The Trading Plan is the final step in the asset re-allocation plan that may take 10 years to complete. I hope that makes sense. Not everyone looking at Trading as a potential future component of their lives needs to generate an income from it. The goal and objective is to do so, but to fail to plan is to plan to fail. I have already done that three times over in the past, and am not keen on repeating the same results. That would make me insane, in Einstein’s opinion.
