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 2016
Number of trades: 64
Number of losers: 19
Winning percentage: 70.3%
Net ticks: +153 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.

Number of losers: 24

Net ticks: +67 ticks
We finally had a definite slip in the win/loss ratio as market volume and action seemed to slow down quite a bit in May. The Opening Range plays worked about 65% of the time instead of the usual 75%, and everything else was slimmer pickings as well. Still, easily a winning month despite a bad start the opening week. We shall see what June brings.
