Audit your trading the way pros do it

Traders are always interested in improving their techniques. Today, I would like to offer a framework for thinking about your trading, using the way fund sponsors evaluate investment managers, called the 5 Ps.
  • People: Who are you, and what's your experience and training?
  • Performance: How have the returns been, and what kind of risk did you take to achieve those results?
  • Philosophy: What makes you think you have an edge?
  • Process: How do you implement the edge you have on the market?
  • Portfolio: Does your portfolio reflect what you are saying about philosophy and process?
With the preface that there are never any single right answer in investing and trading, I will focus on "philosophy" and "process".
