comment FX Tick Data question
The GAIN data is quite unreliable (unordered and with gaps). The best place for free data I have found is dukascopy: dukascopy.com/swiss/english/data_feed/historical , although it would be great to see how that compares to a real provider.

What happens if the signal is triggered during the last bar of the day? Do you assume you buy at the close or would you buy at the next (day) open?

@Shane Please be my guest, you can probably phrase it better than me. Second try: "What are the subcategories for 'Trend Following' and 'Mean Reversion' strategies?. I know only of moving average crossovers for the former and pair trading for the latter. "

Thanks for the answer! According to that I can say I am interested on "Price" since all the Fundamental stuff is too complicated for the moment, now I just have to find pointers for "Trend" and "Reversal" strategies. Why are chartists astrologists? it looks reasonable to write an algorithm looking for ascending triangles and buying at the break point. You could look at historical data and say that strategy works 62% of times with a win/loss ratio of 2$/1$. Then you test it live to see if you get the same numbers... (I'm really curious about the horoscope comparison)
