Compounding 2.8% 1.7% 3.4% and 3.1% is 11.45% in 4 months which is 38.4% compounded.
Very impressive Ron.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


I am interested in futures market value though as I dont trade stocks.

Thanks.

ps Ill be slowly working my way through your thread. Trying to teach myself options trading. I've started on that book you mentioned in your first post.
