Before we get to September’s numbers, here is a short reminder of the results from August. The full report from August can be found here. You can also go back indefinitely by clicking here and scrolling down.
Tradesight Tick Results for August 2014
Number of trades: 20
Number of losers: 8
Winning percentage: 60%
Net ticks: -9.5 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.

A super solid month, and these results don’t even count a couple of fabulous Value Area plays. Market volume came roaring back after the usual August dip, and it showed not only in the movement of the markets but also in their use of technical levels, which is what gives us our trading system. I look forward to entering the best six months of the year.
