Have you ever heard people say that a monkey with a dartboard can outperform the market? Although it's been quoted and requoted thousands of times, I believe it came from "A Random Walk Down Wall Street."

Van Tharp, in his book "Trade Your Way To Financial Freedom", outlined an experiment where he selected stocks at random - long and short - and used an ATR Stop with a 1% Risk Model (fixed fractional position sizing).

In this video I use the powerful tool, Amibroker, and 1000 different runs of 15 stock portfolios (Monte Carlo analysis) to see if, and how, this really works. The results will surprise you.
