If you were given a trading strategy, it was because the educator wants you to understand how the market works without worrying about how to create a trading strategy from stratch.
Besides, as the “Way of the Turtle” shows, you won’t get the same results with an identical trading strategy as someone else due to trading psychology differences.
But how will you make it your own? A good trading educator will never dissuade you from modifying a trading strategy or tweaking it. That is part of making it your own.
For instance, if you are given moving averages combined with Fibonacci as a strategy, maybe you can add Bollinger bands, or replace the moving averages with those. Perhaps you can alter the settings. Maybe you can change the indicator settings, swap indicators during different days, different markets—this is how you calibrate the strategy to you. You change it to fit you.
