Tradesight January 2020 Futures Results

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

Tradesight Tick Results for December 2019

Number of trades: 42
Number of losers: 11
Winning percentage: 73.8%
Net ticks: +294.5 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 January 2020

Number of trades: 36
Number of losers: 7
Winning percentage: 80.5%
Net ticks: +140.5 ticks

I think 80.5% is our highest winning percentage in a single month ever. Pretty interesting to see and a nice start to the year, even if the total gains were less than December. I expect market volatility to remain, which might mean some days we don't have an ES or NQ OR play to start the session, but other days, we should have nice winners. Welcome to 2020!
