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

Tradesight Tick Results for June 2021

Number of trades: 25
Number of losers: 5
Winning percentage: 80%
Net ticks: +126

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 Twitter feed exactly as we call them and manage them as well as the Opening Range plays under the basic strategy we teach for those in our course. We 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 Twitter calls.

It is important to note that these results do not include the Tradesight Value Area or Institutional Range plays, all of which have been working quite well on their own.

You can go through the reports and compare the breakdown that I give as each trade is reviewed.

The markets definitely slowed down for the summer, and the first half of the month saw almost no net returns, which is fine. You expect a negative month or two every year, and if they happen to be July or August, it just makes sense. But then things came rallying back late in the month, including a 65 tick winner on the ES Opening Range play one day, and we ended up having a nice month, which leaves room for August to be slow if necessary before we get back to work.
