4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but limited, strategy December 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This ebook provides a description for a single automated trading strategy, including code and performance results. I bought this because I was highly impressed with the author's earlier book, "Seven Trading Systems for the S&P 500 Futures." There are far too many trading books that provide generalized "buy low, sell high" trading advice, but don't deliver with any specifics. In contrast, David Bean tells you exactly how to implement a specific mechanical trading system, and provides measurable results about how that system has performed in the past --- and hopefully will continue to perform in the future.

I was a bit disappointed with this ebook because the strategy that's presented here is essentially just a simplified version of another strategy that Mr. Bean presented in his earlier "Seven Trading Systems" book. You should definitely purchase that book before purchasing this one.

In addition, the strategy here has debatable merit -- although it's a somewhat profitable system (with a profit factor of about 1.3), it carries a high level of risk with high drawdowns. Some of the strategies presented in his earlier book are much stronger, in my opinion.

However, for the $10 purchase price, I think this book provides interesting food for thought. Although this particular strategy only has fair-to-middling performance, you could use it as the jumping-off point for developing your own custom strategy with better performance.

THis book details the logic behind a 'gap trading strategy' developed by David Bean of Capstone. The beauty of this system is that it provides an additional tool for traders to utilize, one which is fully automated and, judging by my personal results, is well thought out.

More About the Author

David Bean has been trading the financial markets for 17 years, beginning with stocks in 1995 and futures in 1996. In 1997 he began developing automated trading systems, first specializing in the currencies and then migrating to stock index futures. He is currently registered as a Commodity Trading Advisor and has managed money for and consulted hedge funds and individual clients.

His formal academic studies include a BS in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University in 1994. He worked in government and corporate wireless telecommunications from 1995-2000 and became a full-time trader in 2001.

His recent accomplishments include publishing his first book, "Seven Trading Systems for the S&P Futures". In his book published in July 2010, seven trading systems are completely disclosed, showing how to day-trade gap patterns. There are four different gap patterns to learn. The strategies are designed in the Tradestation Platform. You will also learn about the PT/SL ratio, combining strategies, the secrets to optimization, and more.

Testing new strategy ideas based on daily observations is part of the process of keeping up with the markets. Mr. Bean has spent numerous hours using technical analysis and doing statistical market research, testing 1000′s of strategies and ideas, in order to develop the current trading systems and money management methods. "You can literally test 100′s of trading strategies and ideas before coming up with one that can be considered valuable. When I first started developing trading strategies the opposite (flipping short entries with long entries and visa versa) of my original idea is what usually worked best, validating the contrarian market view."

Mr. Bean truly loves what he does and considers his profession a hobby. Mr Bean's trading philosophy is not to make predictions or to pick market tops and bottoms but to trade the current price and moment in time using his time tested trading systems and algorithms in the commodities and futures markets. The methods are very short term in nature and are designed to first manage risk and then to achieve above average returns.
