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

Tradesight Tick Results for September 2014

Number of trades: 16
Number of losers: 4
Winning percentage: 75%
Net ticks: +57.5 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.

Just using the sample calls, this was a slower month than we have been seeing. September was a lot of fun from a trading perspective, but October looked a lot more like August, in that we had a lot of days with big gaps but not much trading action intraday. That was a bit of a disappointment, and a little unusual for October.
