The problem is that I simply do not have time to back test anything.
I hardly have enough time to trade to begin with. If I have to spend months back-testing one strategy, then I might as well back out of this and focus on my job and my son.
Also, why is he the only one I know of that says that back-testing is mandatory?
I was introduced to Forex by a former co-worker. This person never back-tested their strategy and he is now a very successful trader. I am quite certain this is not mandatory, so I'm just curious why Jason is stressing that so strongly.
Perhaps I will have more time on my hands when he gets older, I'm not sure.
I don't mind taking a break from Forex. It's getting to where I don't spend much time with my family anymore and my wife has been getting depressed. I need to sit this one out for a while after hearing about back-testing and try to mend things with the family before I take more time away from them.
Until then, if you don't mind, if you have a link to somewhere I could learn how to back-test, that would be great. I have time to read about it at work.
