Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

System results 2012 / 2013

Now we are in the last weeks of the year - time to compare how the system went over time.
In the thread is discussed how the rules were slightly optimized - I will not repeat here.

Last year week 46 was at the year end result - the last weeks 2012 were not changing this any more.

Points made end of week 46
Year 2012: 1011
Year 2013: 909 (expecting here some more points in the coming weeks)

Actual chart of weekly points made in 2013

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



Discussion:
Both years show quite similar returns. There was a steady gain development without big drawdowns.
In 2013 were less trades taken than in 2012 (normally 3 per week instead of 5).
So given a gain of rough 1'000 yearly future points X 25€ (per point with IB) this nets 25K € in year per car
on a margin which ranged between 6400 to 10'600€ per car in the given 2 years.

End note: The system (rules) looks quite robust over 2 years under the pressure of so many very
different influences and quite different development of the Dax in both compared years.

Thanks @xelaar

If margin is lower - the gain per point must be less too
In the whole thread I was showing only one provider for better comparison for the reader.

Of course I will check your Mirus input!
Happy weekend
