While the pub talk is going on in this cantina, I am done for the day. And done with the profit target too. Still will trade 6 more days same way as I traded these 4, there is no reason to scaredly resort to 1 car piking.

Excellent work! Congrats!

Robert

guys I did not pass LTP, I just hit profit target and overshoot it by 30% but still have to trade 6 days, I only traded 4 and 10 is a minimum.

Thanks for congrats, I owe you enormously, accountability to this thread and its readers boosted my discipline and plan following enormously. Trust me I never traded so orderly before, even with large money on the line

I know you didn't pass the LTP yet since there are six days left, but if you stick to your discipline and trading style like you did before, you'll accomplish the profit objective of your LTP twice at the end of the remaining days.

BTW, I really like your new signature...

Nice going so far. Can I ask you why they made you go thru LP--I went back and checked your final results. 92% winning days, you did it for 20 day combine so thats enough time in there. Was it the avg losing day 2x> avg winning day that did it ?

I d say since you pretty much have it in bag just trade smaller, in case of losing days it ll be a small loss. Since they are pretty picky with stats makes your LP look good (spectacular so far)

The answer is I don't know. The only thing that comes to mind is this is my first combine and almost all people who get to this stage have some history behind them for TsT to analyze. Not a case for me.
