Tradesight September 2019 Futures Results

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

Tradesight Tick Results for August 2019

Number of trades: 38
Number of losers: 16
Winning percentage: 57.9%
Net ticks: +13.5 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.

Should have been the slowest month of the year or close to it, but it was still profitable and better than August. Let's hope things pick up.

Before we get to September's numbers, here is a short reminder of the results from August. The full report from August can be found here and you can get the last several months in a row vertically by clicking here and scrolling down.

Tradesight Pip Results for August 2019

Number of trades: 13
Number of losers: 6
Winning percentage: 53.9%
Worst losing streak: 2 in a row
Net pips: +5 pips

Reminder: Here are the rules.

1) Calls made in the calendar month count. In other words, a call made on August 31 that triggered the morning of September 1 is not part of September. Calls made on Thursday, September 30 that triggered between then and the morning of October 1 ARE part of September.

2) Trades that triggered before 8 pm EST / 5 pm PST (i.e. pre Asia) and NEVER gave you a chance to re-enter are NOT counted. Everything else is counted equally.

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 40 pips on one half and 60 on the second, that’s a 50-pip winner. If we made 40 pips on one half, never adjusted our stop, and the second half stopped for the 25 pip loser, then that’s a 7 pip winner (15 divided by 2 is 7.5, and I rounded down).

4) Pure losers (trades that just stop out) are considered 25 pip losers. In some cases, this can be a few more or a few less, but it should average right in there, so instead of making it complicated, I count them as 25 pips.

5) Trade re-entries are valid if a trade stops except between 3 am EST and 9 am EST (when I’m sleeping). So in other words, even if you are awake in those hours and you could have re-entered, I’m only counting things that I would have done. This is important because otherwise the implication is that you need to be awake 24/6. Triggers that occur right on the Big Three news announcements each month don’t count as you shouldn’t have orders in that close at that time.

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

Stock Picks Recap for 10/29/19

With each stock's recap, we will include a (with market support) or (without market support) tag, designating whether the trade triggered with or without market directional support at the time. Anything in the first five minutes will be considered WITHOUT market support because market direction cannot be determined that early. ETF calls do not require market support, and are thus either winners or losers.

From the Messenger/Tradesight_st Twitter Feed, NFLX triggered short (with market support) and worked enough for a partial:
