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 2014
Number of trades: 35
Number of losers: 19
Winning percentage: 54.3%
Net ticks: -28.5 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 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 month. We had some pretty narrow ranges, but also a couple of big winners as well when the opportunities were there. Unfortunately, there was a 2-day window with 5 losers in a row that cost us 35 pips. There were also some Comber signals that aren’t counted here, and they all worked. I’m more impressed with the futures than Forex at the moment, but we will see how that holds up going into summer.
