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. You can also go back indefinitely by clicking here and scrolling down.
Tradesight Tick Results for November 2013
Number of trades: 22
Number of losers: 14
Winning percentage: 36%
Net ticks: +35 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.

That was a poor month with the two weeks of basically wasted activity with Christmas and New Year’s on Wednesdays. We also had a poor run in the second week of the month where we lost 5 trades in a row. Still, we pulled out a winning month to wrap the year and ended the year with winning months 5 out of 6 months. Volume has been poor, and we will want to see that pick up in January before we really get forceful in our futures trading, which has been the slowest of the three asset classes (Stocks, Futures, and Forex) in 2013.
