Before we get to August’s numbers, here is a short reminder of the results from July. The full report from June can be found here. You can also go back indefinitely by clicking here and scrolling down.
Tradesight Tick Results for July 2013
Number of trades: 21
Number of losers: 7
Winning percentage: 66.7%
Net ticks: +34 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.

We came into the month warning that volume in the markets had gotten so low that futures trading would be hazardous. We had the least number of triggers ever for the service and the most days without anything triggering. Basically, it was a “stay on the sidelines” idea with market volume so poor. There really isn’t even much else to talk about. The few Comber 13 signals on the 5-minute charts still worked this month, including one on the last day of the month, but those aren’t captured in the results. We hope volume picks up so we can get back to work on the Futures stuff with confidence.
