Well-known trading system developer Kevin Davey will talk to us remotely from Cleveland. We will project his presentation and have two way sound using a portable microphone for good interaction. We have held several meetings this way that have worked very well and got an excellent reception from our members.
Kevin Davey (http://www.kjtradingsystems.com) is a private futures, forex and stock index trader based in Cleveland, Ohio. Kevin has been trading for over 20 years.
He placed either 1st or 2nd in the Robbins WorldCup Trading Championship in each of three successive years.
Some topics that Kevin will cover include:
- His own trading history, including his recent successes, and also some earlier wrong turns and losses. How he overcame the latter and how others can avoid them
- The importance of using an Objective Approach
- Back testing, Walk forward testing, Monte Carlo Simulation
- Rule-based Algo development
- Can you achieve actual trading results as good as your testing indicated?
Kevin was recognized as a "Market Master" in the 2010 book "The Universal Principles of Successful Trading: Essential Knowledge for All Traders in All Markets."

The January results for his active trading systems are posted at http://www.icontact-archive.com/nSEQkmUVF8t8eZnepxuYvYkcW53enD2I?w=1
With a background in aerospace engineering, Kevin now trades full time, writes trading related articles and gives trading webinars. He is also available for one on one mentoring or consultation. This is in addition to continuously developing new trading systems and strategies.
He is also a very active contributor on a number of popular trading forums.
His talk will be very useful for anyone developing or using a trading system or systematic trading approach, or considering doing so. It will also be of interest to a broader audience interested in systematic trading from any point of view; for example, those interested in buying a trading system or having one traded for them in managed futures.
The meeting is free and open to all, preferably with RSVP, but we have the large combined-room meeting space at the Library, so feel free to bring or invite friends or anyone who might be interested, even without RSVP where that is easier.

7:30 pm Kevin can stay for an extended interaction with our members
8:00 pm After Kevin has to leave us, we will have ask several of our local members in the meeting room who develop their own systems to add their own critiques
8:30 pm Planned end of meeting
9:00 pm Optional informal gathering organized by Dave W. at a nearby restaurant/tavern - all welcome, each on their own tab. Discuss trading systems, or trading, or just socialize with other traders.
