10/7/2014 - Bad never looked so good -

Ok - so Monday I had a good day and called it bad. Today I had a bad day but I'm calling it good. I could see just from looking at the price action that it would be difficult to get any decent trades from these ticks.... but I tried anyway and proved myself right..

Walk of shame....

Sorry - i didn't get the trades quick enough so I can't post times and amounts. The trades were -8 ticks and -4 ticks. See attached XLS for details.

10/8/2014 - Good, normal, the way it should be...

So - today was winner winner again. I'm hoping to end the week positive. I'm finding the groove and it seems to be working. My system.... +4/-4 I usually say I MUST stick to - and on losing days I prove myself right.... see 9/30, 10/7 for good examples. however, if I had let my trade run today and not used a profit limit order I would have grabbed much more win. Regardless, I stuck to the plan and it worked perfectly.

2 trades for 4 ticks each. +$100

10/9/2014 - Good day, mostly


Today I took 3 trades, one great, one bad, and the third was great. So I ended up with a total of 4 ticks. The second trade went past my stop by 1 tick, then reversed. I'm going to go back and check my previous bad days for that scenario and check to see if I move my stop further out if that makes more winners, or worse losses. I'll post my results tonight when I'm done. Also - I've update the excel sheet for the Per Contract Minimums and Per Day Profit if you are interested in that.

Here is today:
Date Symbol # Cont. Commission Per Tick Value Total Contracts Total Trades # of Ticks Total Commission Net P/L Day
10/9/2014 ES 1 $3.35 $12.50 3 3 4 $10.05 $39.95

The trades:

Where oh where did my little stop go???

Checked all my bad trades from this week and last. Here are the results.

At a -4 stop:
9 bad trades for -36 ticks

At a -6 stop:
7 bad trades for -28 ticks - 2 winning trades at 8 ticks
The additional draw down would have been $25 for each additional trade for a total additional loss of $175.00
The additional gains from the two winning trades would have been $100.00 - No joy here...
At a -8 stop:
6 bad trades for -48 ticks - 3 winning trades at 12 ticks
The additional draw down would have been $50.00 for each additional trade for a total additional loss of $300
The additional gains from the 3 winning trades would have been $150.00 - Still no joy.
You can easily see the diminishing returns of further stops.

So - what if I would have traded with no stop at all??? Crazy talk - I know.
3 bad trades with large losses until the market reversed. I didn't calculate it. But - it shows me that ultimately my system was correct 6 additional times, however - when do you know what is going to turn? That is the ultimate question.

Thanks for reading....

10/13/2014 - Real Money trade #1

Actually started trading real money today, pretty much for the first time in the Futures world. Good to see that the system still held up, though I would have been surprised if it didn't. I did get a little emotional and stopped my trades out at 2 ticks each. So - not a major win.... but money in the bank none-the-less....
