FDAX trader looking for DayTrader job or Investor

Just wondering if there is any chance to find a DayTrader job (worldwide) or Investor for my trading.

See attached FDAX May and June 2015 numbers. I am able to trade consistently producing similar results every month.

Any help, comment, suggestion, pls?

Is this trading 1 contract?
Can you give an overview of your approach?
How many months have the results been like this?

In 60% - 70% of trades I have 2 contracts in play, but not opened/closed at the same price. The rest (30%-40%) is just 1 contract.

Well, it is all about Volume distribution, Volume Value Area, Aggressive Buyers/Sellers, Buy/Sell Limit orders at particular prices through different time frames.

See attached picture with 2 typical situations I trade every day. It's today's FDAX, both situations are Short trades opened in short trend correction.

The idea is simple: Looking for trapped Buyers at the end of the correction, then go short. (check the picture please)
I use similar technique for both trend & counter trend trades.

Well, I trade this style consistently over 6 months.

Positive:
The stats suggest you have a real consistent edge (at least over the 6 months you've traded). And your explanation chart makes a lot of sense to me. It reminds me that increased volume on a short bodied candle in a trend is something I must do some testing on.

Negative:
You seem to make a 2-3 points per trade on average (?). How are you going to scale this up to trade more size? Unless you can do that there isn't so much point in going to trade for someone else.

If you are willing to put up the cash you will be able to find a day trading 'job' somewhere but if you are looking for someone to pay you to trade their money for them it doesn't look like a great proposition for them as it is now.

Thanks for your comments.

I don't agree 80 euro per trade per contract on average is that bad. What about following interpretation: "Every time I decide to trade I earn 80 euro per contract no matter what." Sounds quite good to me...

Regarding scaling... It's not any problem to open 20+ contracts on FDAX in a few batches depending on account size of course. Or I can trade more liquid markets like CL or ES/NQ/YM for example. I can go for a bigger profit with a position part as well, but I don't think it would increase average profit rapidly as the further target hit probability is decreasing.

Cheers

You don't make 80 EUR per contract every time no matter what, just on average. And you are not even certain on the average going forward. The variability of your results is almost as important as the average. It influences the number of contracts you can trade for a given capital and hence the rate at which you can compound, amongst many other things. But with a PF of near 2, I agree it's not a bad place to be. Your results don't seem particularly skewed and there are a decent number of trades to go on.

It sounds like you do have a lot of ideas for how to scale up, which is good. If you are sure you can trade this for 20+ contracts (i.e. you actually have) then fine. But otherwise don't make that assumption.

IMHO, if you are looking for someone to hire you and pay you a salary to trade, you need to be able to answer these questions really convincingly. But you seem to be making decent consistent money already, it should be possible to compound and develop it to the point where someone will be willing to hire you... but by that point you'll probably not want a job

well, you answered before I ask about consistency of your method, but I take minimum 1 year results and get monthly average from that year and keep that as a goal/ballpark

your avg/trade is excellent and mine is half of it
do you do discretionary or auto strategy

Thanks for your comment. I am discretionary trader.

thats great and for me, discretionary trading is very hard, so I do with strategies
and do you always use 5min chart and use 1 min for entries?
and in your spreadsheet in the 1st post, what time zone in the trade detail. like 5/5/2015 12:05:59 PM
and how much diff from CST, central stand time (US) that I am in
