Way back when, I had stated that I would be stopping when the single contract drawdown of $5000 was hit. It looks like that that will happen soon, since I am only a losing trade or 2 away from that...

Sep 30th Update

Not many good things to say about the Euro day and night system performance this past quarter. Only 2 trades in the day strategy for the month of September, which is a lot less than normal.
