Example text

It is possible under these circumstances to create risk models that fail to simulate forests due to overabundance of trees. Consider, if you will, a hypothetical limit-setting methodology used by one French trading institution that was thought to convey such a market advantage that the company in question was afraid to provide details of the models to anyone—including those whose job it was to implement the system and monitor associated compliance. In our hypothetical example, the methodology, software, and support systems were officially assigned the title of Douce Machine (Soft Machine) in a tribute to both the William Boroughs novel and the avant garde British rock band that took its name (most of the risk dudes in this bank, and even some of its senior management, were righteously erudite).

It is also important to review the more immediate external factors associated with your trading. How comfortable are you in your physical trading environment? How is your relationship with those immediately around you and with your supervisor or capital provider? What are the best and the worst elements of this setting, in terms of associated prospects for maximizing your performance? 3. Formulating an Action Plan. Once you have completed the review of recent performance and current external environment, you are in a very strong position to figure out the adjustments necessary for you to operate on the higher plateau that the optimal target return concept demands.

Whatever the case may be, it will be up to you to identify the opportunities for improved performance, to formulate a plan, and to put it into action. Finally, with respect to optimal target return, I should mention that in some cases this figure may justifiably be set at levels below historical performance. This would be particularly true in cases where recent returns have been suboptimal and/or erratic or where a trader’s market environment has changed sufficiently to warrant a downgrade of expectations.
