  9. As committed and dedicated as I was - after 4 years pursuing Automated Strategies (total 9 years active in Forex, with primary focus on day-trading, both mean-reverse and trend-following) I am finally ready to give up. About $100K spent, over 20 various ideas for Algo explored (programmed and tested – both back-test and forward-test, both demo and real, both domestic bank and international prime-broker, etc. - you name it), but eventually all failed, or seem so. Was it (i) wrong market selection, or (ii) bad ideas for Algo in essence, or (iii) wrong targets and too high expectations, or (iv) technology/platforms shortfalls, or (v) absence of clear and transparent performance/quality evaluation criteria, as well as similar criteria for the progress of the entire Project, or (vi) poor terms definitions and lack of understanding/communications with investors, or (vii) just myself not being smart enough, or could be a combination of all above -- one way or another I have finally hit a threshold. So at this point would greatly appreciate an advice – double the efforts and keep digging in (?), or quit it for good and forget it as a worst nightmare (?).
