"Systematic trading has dramatically improved my returns and drawdowns. I'm easily beating the indexes and not taking an inordinate amount of risk. Prior to MetaStock, I tried one trading concept after another and was essentially break-even – not without many gut-wrenching moments though. Trading is now objective and simple for me. I just follow the signals, and through extensive back-testing, I have confidence that my system will be highly profitable in the future."
