update

1/25/17

Short trade finally worked out. Captured 8 points per car. Sim trading entry and exit was identical to real trade.(2 is sim, 10 is real)

It was 4k(3963.60 after comm) day unless the the system trades more for today. It is a lot of money to me and found myself getting excited about the trade. I need to stay neutral for trading results. If winning trades gives me excitement, losing trades will be very disappointing. Individual trades has no meaning. At the end, only thing matter is strings of trades and if result was in favor of positive side. I can not get myself emotionally exhausted dealing with up and downs with portfolio. Wining and losing trades are good trades as long as they are in line with the system.


Beginning balance(10/12/2017) 24,684.06
Investment per 1 contract: 5,000
Max risk per 1 contract : 4,000
current number of contract: 7
Current account balance : 41,307.88(little less due to monthly market data payments)
Profit/lost from beginning : 16,623.82

Target 1: 30k met on 11/18/2017
next target: 35,000.00

Target 2: 35,000 met on 1/11/2018 adding 1 car. total 7 contract.
Next target: 40,000.00

1/20 temp. boosting account with 13k to trade 3 additinal contracts.
--pull back 13k once trading account reaches 50k
--Add 7500 into trading account if falls below 25k
--No adding contracts until trading account is at 55,000 level.

1/25 Target 3: 40k met.
Next target:45,000

lovely result

I might have to revisit some of my strategies. They were nice with 0 slippage but when added 1 slippage just went to hell. Your journal is giving me hope to revisit them.

Looking forward to more results.

Hi, Lone.

Thank you for your comment and checking out my journal.

I have thrown away so many systems exactly that reason. IMHO, Slippage and commission plays great part of day trading.

update 2/6

4th target achieved. Past 8 weeks has been profitable. Meaning market is in tune with the system for now. High volatility environment. Yet 10 ES contracts orders getting filled without much of slippage. Win/Loss ratio is still too high at 2.10. Historically 1.2 is the ratio after over 1000 trades. So far system has traded 113 RT. Will continue to see and expect it to drop in future. Losing weeks and months are sure to come. Be prepared and follow the aggressive account building plan.

Beginning balance(10/12/2017) 24,684.06

Max risk per 1 contract : 4,000

Great performance kanepa.

I am trying to understand your investment and risk.
Are your trades all intraday or do they carry over into the next session?

Investment per 1 contract: 5,000
Looks like you are carrying over to next session (ES Initial Margin is 5,555 /contract)
but
Max risk per 1 contract : 4,000
Looks like a humongous day trade loss, but impossible to carry into next session (ES Margin Maintenance 5,050 /contract)
Or do you mean max account drawdown?

Hi, JMP3 and thanks!

Well, today was the losing day I was looking for. 3 trades all stopped out/ -4346.70 for today. I was riding a lucky strings of winners and have been been expecting this. And there was 1 tick slippage on one trade.

With low probability trading system like mine, losing trades are sure to be expected but still finding myself uncomfortable watching trades getting stopped out. Will continue to improve on this issue.

Having a few losses is just the cost of doing business. There wouldn't be a market if everybody won every trade. Still, you're kicking some butt, keep up the good work, JP.

Thank you Camdo.

Sorry for the confusion.

All trades exit at EOD. No carry overs.

Max risk is when account loses 4000 per contract(Not individual trades), I will pull the plug on system. Historical Max draw down was at $3350 per contract. I added 650 to make it 4K to deal with the risk. I understand this amount is a bare minimum to trade. I would love to see when I can add more to max risk later in future but I am in aggressive account building mode at this time.
