Tradesight November 2019 Futures Results

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

Tradesight Tick Results for October 2019

Number of trades: 50
Number of losers: 9
Winning percentage: 82%
Net ticks: +147.5 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.

Tradesight Tick Results for November 2019

Number of trades: 47
Number of losers: 17
Winning percentage: 63.8%
Net ticks: +11 ticks

Well, let's just say that the markets got slower and leave it at that. Slowest month of the year by far, and our win percentage dropped, but we still made money and won 63.8% of the trades.
