Tradesight May 2019 Futures Results

Before we get to May's numbers, here is a short reminder of the results from April. The full report from April can be found here. You can also go back indefinitely by clicking here and scrolling down.

Tradesight Tick Results for April 2019

Number of trades: 50
Number of losers: 16
Winning percentage: 68.0%
Net ticks: +73 ticks

Reminder: Here are the rules.

1) Totals for the month are based on trades that occurred on trading days in the calendar month.

2) Trades are based on the calls in the Twitter feed exactly as we call them and manage them as well as the Opening Range plays under the basic strategy we teach for those in our course. We do not count everything you could have done from taking our courses and using our tools.

3) All trades are broken into two pieces, with the assumption that one half is sold at the first target and one half is sold at the final exit. These are then averaged. So if we made 6 ticks on one half and 12 on the second, that’s a 9-tick winner.

4) Pure losers (trades that just stop out) are considered 7 tick losers. We don’t risk more than that in the Twitter calls.

It is important to note that these results do not include the Tradesight Value Area or Institutional Range plays, all of which have been working quite well on their own.

You can go through the reports and compare the breakdown that I give as each trade is reviewed.

Tradesight Tick Results for May 2019

Number of losers: 13

Huge month for futures. Even with all of the gaps, and we had some key stop outs because of them, we had a huge win ratio just on the main trades and racked up the gains. No complaints at all.

April was definitely not as interesting as March with some very narrow opening hours of play. But, the system holds, and we had a good win percentage that led to moderate gains. Nothing to complain about.
