Feb 11 Gains

I only had a few hours this morning so tried only short term trades.

Gold trades.....net loss (60) 3 trades. two losers and on winner.

Crude Oil trades....gain 1150
5 single trades. All winners. Traded initially with Stop for entry. Then sold on retracements. That is harder for me emotionally but worked out great.
I am back above my September starting balance (barely).

New Algorithm...New Journal

*************************************************************************

Today I did try my NFP trade in the bonds but the stop entry did not trigger.

*************************************************************************

I have been working on a purely mechanical system and am ready to test in real time simulated trades. I have two variations both trading the Euro attempting to trade when the market is over extended. They are both similar so I probably would not trade both but I am for this test.

THESE TEST RESULTS ARE SIMULATED but in real time. Entries are computer generated. I am not completely satisfied with my exits and may manage them in addition to auto exits.

Case MM2 3 trades, 2 short, 1 long, all winners for 212.50 Before commissions. ( I thought i had commissions included but alas, I do not.)

Case MM3 5 trades, 3 long (winners) 2 short (1 win 1 loss). Gross Profit 712.5, Gross loss 25. 687.50 Net BC. I made one mistake: I had an exit on Close and tried to sell to close at one tick gain and ended up short one contract. I closed for a 1 tick loss that will show up as a trade on July 3.

I am confused about the first trade as it is near the price based on the over-bought condition but it shows several bars after that price occurred.

Change to System MM3

So I had to change MM3 exit. Both systems are similar though their respective entries and exits are slightly different. I was trying to trail the stop on MM3 after a minimum number of bars and a minimum profit. However, my calculation was off and I essentially had no stop on those two conditions. It definitely had not adversely impacted the system yet and I don't believe it resulted in more favorable conditions, either. Therefore, I am continues my simulation.

These results I find very interesting. The are very similar and trade the same instrument but MM2 has a high winning percentage (75%) with a 1.36 profit factor.

System MM3 has just over a 50% winning ratio but the losses are smaller and therefore yeilds a profit factor of 2.21 after about 2 weeks.

Here is the chart for the above trades.

You can see that the entries are close to each other. MM3 actually take more trades and has more favorable fills than MM2. (The MM series were different money management algos but I changed the entry on MM3 also). MM2 waits a little longer to confirm the signal and thus has a higher percentage wins. I need to analyze why it has higher individual losses.
