27/8: Getting good at sticking to valid setups – 24 out of 27 for this week

End of Thursday – another long day – opened and closed ten trades today.  Up and down, up and down.  One of the setups was borderline but still a “pass” rather than a “fail”.

  • That makes 27 trades in the four sessions this week.
  • I had 12 winners, 2 scratches and 13 losers.
  • That’s a win rate of 48% and an average reward-risk ratio of 1.59.
  • Transaction Costs were 1.07R over the 27 trades (average of 4.42% per trade)
  • Net Result thus far is +3.45R
  • 24 out of 27 setups taken were valid (89%) – excellent!

Comparison to a casino blackjack game:  To well-versed blackjack players, that effectively means you lose a hand and then get a blackjack paying 3:2, then you lose a hand, followed by a blackjack… and so on.  That would be a fine game indeed.  My stops have been bigger on all instruments this week because of ongoing PBOC-inspired volatility in the markets.

Am just pumping out the trades now, and all the documentation along with it.  Like a production line. Entries are getting better.  Now it’s the trade management that seems to be all over the place.  Seems like that sticking with valid setups alone is not a sure road to riches.

Recently changed the Stochastic setting from (5,5,5) to (5,3,3).
