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

Tradesight Tick Results for March 2014

Number of trades: 27
Number of losers: 25
Winning percentage: 48.1%
Net ticks: +31 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 Messenger exactly as we call them and manage them and 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 Messenger calls.

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

A very interesting month for futures. Things were much improved as volume returned to the market. Our only negative week was the week of options expiration, which was the only week where volume dropped down, averaging only 1.7 billion shares a day on the NASDAQ. Beyond that, remember that the results above include partials of just 6 ticks averaged into the numbers. It was a solid month, and on top of these main calls, there were plenty of setups and several Comber signals. Our win/loss ratio was actually a little lower than normal, which is interesting, but with market volume up, we had several trades that moved nicely and gave us solid gains. I continue to inch my size back up in futures as volume is holding in the markets better than 2013.
