Overheard Around the Web

Over on StockTwits, here’s an example of what they’re saying about FB:

    Sometime in Aug, someone asked me if my strategy would hold up in a down market. I mentioned that it should outperform the market as I validated my system under all market conditions as long as you continue to find good setups and do it CONSISTENTLY without deviation and hesitation. Since I started this portfolio in June, we've gone through 2 drawdowns: one 8.1% in June and the current 8.4% now. Portfolio is up 44.3% or 5x the S&P return of 9.0%.

    Bottomline is to follow the process and not worry too much about market conditions as it is already reflected in the edge (as long as it was randomly validated), if that makes sense. If the casino has a drawdown because of a cluster of multiple jackpot winners, it just grinds away with their edge. As a trader, my job is to outperform the market, not outsmart it by timing when. If it is your setup, trade on!
