I think he means the price action trading style taught by Walter Peters.

Thoughts on COMP/S.

I am thinking about this comp and comps in general. There is only one way to win and thats to push the boundaries, if you trade in a sensible manner and trade well increasing your account by 1% a day = 20% over the month you still have little to no chance of winning.

If you look at the past contests and the % increase of the winners you will see what Im on about, all the winners took risks OR got seriously lucky.

No 'sensible' trader wins (without some good luck) and the winners normally have huge drawdowns.

What are your thoughts? MINE = We need to take risks to win ANY comp OR be on the right end of a BREXIT type trade.

Not saying comp winners are bad traders just that Taking LARGE RISK and LUCK seem to be major factors.


Same thoughts here, and the usual conservative risk management used in live trading or even in demo trading is thrown out of the window. More like, the gambling side steps in when it comes to competitions.

I agree with you. I took part in another competition before, and the winner was just a gambler. He had 400+% return in 3 months and a huge drawdown (can't remember the exact number but quite sure it was > 30%).

I think a competition is meaningless if the overall % increase in account is the only yardstick in deciding the winner. I am joining just to see what kind of traders are out there and for the fun of it.

The organisers should look at introducing an additional rule of 'not more than 10% or 20% peak-trough drawdown' to try and sift out gamblers winning on luck.

Never resist the markets
