Month of July summary:
- PNL year to date: 61%, max drawdown 10.8%
- PNL for July: %8.8 (actually it is 13% of my initial capital at beginning of year, but month to month change of equity is 8.8%)

A look inside my portfolio:
The portfolio consists of more than 11 different strategies; in order to diversify the risk. Started with 3 strategies at the beginning of the year; and progressively added more.

Based on my objective of reaching 100% per year return; looks like we are in line with expectation

The trading is fully automated. no manual intervention required. It is performing close to backtesting results.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears in rain.

I have developed an alternative system based from "manual A.I." observations and will trade it from September on, or even start next week.

It's far from "perfect" but i hope it can be improved.

I was taken hostage by gbpjpy for like 2 weeks when I entered too soon and the dragon decided to range, so I didn't place trades for a while.



Started with $600 which were a transfer of profits and this month I added 3k.

Month of August: -8.9%
YTD: +47%

first month in negative territory; and the problem was due to a bad day on August 10th; where I made an error by manually exiting all open positions.

The month could have been +4% if I left the automated system do its magic.

Here is discipline rules by Jim Simmons; on automated trading success (one of the rules: let the model do its magic).

It is a great pity but mistakes happen from time to time. You will catch up soon, good luck with it.

Hello guys, has the 2018 $100 live in house contest been determined. I would like to join even though it is already late in the year.

03.08.2018 update (3 August 2018) It is RondaRousy's idea.
MZ,

what is going on with your live TE??? down 46% this month is that correct or am I seeing things?
What strategy are you using to trade?

Hey RR,

nice to have you here! Thanks for visiting.

Just using it for one last time. Making buy flips in a sell trend (and vice versa).

Recently, after 4.5 years of flipping, realized there is only one direction - the annual trend. They do not even care about the monthly trend. At all. So, everything outside the annual trend is just a trouble (for me).

Already switched to hedging/annual trend, but I am afraid, it might be quite late now.

My hedging strategy is based on closing the opened trades instead of opening the opposite hedges + regular hedging. Mostly keeping just one direction trades opened. The direction change depends on timing. Gold has been time calling it for a sell since April 2018, when I saw how they are timing it for a very first time. After that, there were few small buy moments, but in general not worthy. The whole September is a net sell timing signal and it will fall down. Unfortunately, I have to take -6/-7k loss now and keep the account with some balance or gamble the fall is probably around the corner. I will gamble it. If I blow, I blow. Will reload again.

The timing problem I have is they do buy corrections of 20-30 bucks on Gold and do not change the sell signal for a second.
September is a bad moment like this one.

Honestly, I am looking for a solution, as knowing the direction does not help much in times like these.

Lets see, if we are already near the corrective top now.

Find some of the worst traders on FF and there are so many of them to choose from, ranging from red flag members to newbies, AND DO THE OPPOSITE. Simple way to be profitable Works all the time. Use this "hopeless trader indicator" to your advantage

If you didn't follow your own idea to be profitable all the time by doing the OPPOSITE of what MonkeyZ is doing,

then you are a noob and don't know it.



To my son anti-flash (Jonny Hatinga Jr.). I have uploaded a TE for the benefit of all FF members. To make money, you just have to do the opposite of what I do. Just reverse copy my trades. It is RondaRousey's idea. That is the only way to stay profitable, actually.
Thanks sir.

I made some 30% the previous month +17% carry over into October which is this months profit.

30% this month with some running profits into next month.

I started this account being a trigger happy trader on the 15 min but now I have 5 months of work invested into this account so I turned conservative.

\I am trading the 4hr now and only trading the best possible scenarios, October was super super slow.

Attachment 3078302Quick update; my target of 100% for the year 2018 has been achieved today )))))))))))))))

Since begining of 2018; no withdrawal or deposit have been made.

Hopefully the year will end with much higher return. My new target is perhaps around 130% by end of year; and will keep it going with NO WITHDRAWALS for 2019. Let's see where this will take me.

Will be good if more users post their experience so far for this challenge.

You can also join this challenge now; as we still got 2 months till the end of the year.
