Futures Trading Journal

203 days, practice account with TDA is up to $860,000 from $100,000. 113-87 Positive versus negative. This is a mathematical indicator testing. And the odds of this success with a standard deviation and coin flip probability is less than 1/10.

Secondary Futures trading account at 45 days, up to $203,000 from $100,000. This is an assessment of the entire market every day, based on my intuition, or studying daily for 7 years. The first is a strategy trade, this is my personal feelings.

3 accounts with Collective2. this is a new project. These combined are around neutral right now.

I will begin posting here. The hope is to find an investing partner. If someone wants to refer to my practice trade from Nov 2016 - Aug 2017, I have a 90 page document, 3,635 trades.
Right now I want to start recording data.

8-31-2017 Futures market:

1. Sell PLV7: 999.6
2. Sell 6JU7: 908.25
3. Buy CLV7: 47.1
4. Buy HOV7: 1.7306
5. Buy RBV7: 1.7653
6. Buy ZWZ7: 4330
7. Buy ZSX7: 944.25
8. Buy ZOZ7: 236.5
9. Buy NGV7: 3.025

Cheers to success

That's all for now

Are your figures/accounts real money? If you have made $760K in less than one year starting with $100K, why do you need a financial partner?

EDIT: Whoops, forget that question. I see another post of your where it is identified as PRACTICE account.

I would continue working on your Collective2 track record. Practice account results are regarded by most as meaningless...

TD Ameritrade is pretty legit in that if you want to invest energy, it can be verified. There are things like position and cash adjustments that can be done, but trading record is possible if you care enough. I can do this now. The situation is pretty much needing to connect to get things started. Agree with you about Collective2. I have watched the market almost every day for 2000+ days, and have a computer program that compares 200,000 analogs.

I wish you nothing but good luck, but I will tell you this: I know a ton of sim/practice trading millionaires, but very few real money trading millionaires.

No serious, sophisticated potential financial partner would ever rely on just practice account results. Even tracking services can be gamed.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, without enough real money to invest this is my route. There is enough volume in the market, I think, that practice and real results should be similar.

OK. What kind of slippage are you assuming for each of these trades/markets? Just assume you are trading 1 contract, market or stop orders.

1. Sell PLV7: 999.6
2. Sell 6JU7: 908.25
3. Buy CLV7: 47.1
4. Buy HOV7: 1.7306
5. Buy RBV7: 1.7653

This is a running mean of position Open to Close. I'm proving success, everything else is easily done in real scenario.

Continue with previous 11 (Cocoa CCZ7 opened at 1947(market)).

12. Sell Gold (GCZ7) 1338.5
13. Sell Palladium (PAZ7) 975.2
14. Sell Australian Dollar (6AU7) .7944
15. Buy Soybean Meal (ZMZ7) (Market at Open)

This is graph of results with TD Ameritrade through 205 days.
