I am Computer engineer and I know programming in python, go-lang, C++, I am interested in trading, I know how to make system to get data, send orders, back-test, fault-tolerance system, etc I have understanding of how the market works, its jargon, terms, methodology, basically I know how to trade.
What basically I am missing is the most important part - strategy . On going through various books, blogs, articles I come out to know that strategy is a very vague term and lot many are teaching their specific chart patterns, candle-stick patterns, indicators, statistical models, etc
It can mean as simple as buy/sell when gap up/down, or complex using higher mathematics.
What basically I am looking for is the guidelines or the proper book or article, where a beginner like me in this field, can know where to start designing strategy or what is really a strategy. How these peoples come up with ideas? Is there such a book or resource material exist? Or, its all ideas and plans which one learns with experience only and for starting one has to do search online for ideas and modify these online available ideas to make it work.
Please forgive me if what I asked is confused question because I am really is confused about the strategy design.
