Before we get to December’s numbers, here is a short reminder of the results from November. The full report from November can be found here.
Tradesight Tick Results for November 2012
Number of trades: 26
Number of losers: 16
Winning percentage: 38.4%
Net ticks: -27 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.

An interesting end to the year. We didn’t do any calls in the last week with the Holidays, half days, and the usually light end of year volume. Therefore, we only had 25 calls for the month, which is much less than usual. Ranges in the market were mostly light early on, and while the stock market has been interesting, the futures market remains a little bit contained, although certainly, December was better than November (ignoring the last week). We’re still seeing too many cases where nice setups will sweep once before going and working the second time, and that brings down the net results.
We don’t have an end of year summary report for the futures calls since we didn’t start tracking the results until June. We will have one (like Forex has had for years) next year. You can view prior months by clicking here and scrolling through them all.
