New wordpress project

New performance measures for pleasance

This post is a recap of the pleasance system. I’ve just finished checking the pleasance system on the EURUSD and GBPJPY trading pairs. This is in addition to the GBPUSD that I usually work with.

Lucifer is out

The ‘lucifer’ project is out. Its available at its Github page. It should be a good basis for most of the trading simulations that I have planned. The next step is to create a seperate project with all the trading system simulators on them. That should be fun. I’ll find enough ideas on the forums.
