Before we get to January’s numbers, here is a short reminder of the results from December. The full report from December can be found here. You can also go back indefinitely by clicking here and scrolling down.

Tradesight Tick Results for December 2014

Number of trades: 17
Number of losers: 8
Winning percentage: 52.9%
Net ticks: +3.5 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.

Tradesight Tick Results for January 2015

Number of trades: 10
Number of losers: 2
Winning percentage: 83.3%
Net ticks: +56 ticks

Well that was a solid month. With the Opening and Institutional Range plays (which aren’t counted in the results) working almost daily, we’re making less of the regular calls as we usually already have trades on early. However, the calls we did make hit a historic high with an 83.3% win rate. Add that to everything that worked with the Opening Range, Institutional Range, and Value Area setups, and it was quite a start to the year. Ranges have been largely good for futures, even if some days aren’t as interesting for stocks themselves because we drift a lot. I see no reason that this will end anytime soon.
