I am glad to see the close of 2013, the year in which I introduced several models and began testing them in real-money accounts. My Forex multi-strategy model, as tracked by MyFXBook, severely underperformed my expectations. There were three primary causes that contributed to this: errors in my programming code, errors in my data stream, and worldwide quantitative easing policies by the main central banks. Each of these errors, as one can imagine, proved critical. I hope I have corrected the first two, but QE has proven to be a new twist to the market that has confounded my counter-trend models. I hope that with additional data in the coming months, my models can be adjusted to reduce risk in these extreme scenarios, but only time will tell.
