It is trying to rain here in the north end of the Sonoran desert. To wet to go hiking so stuck indoors; decided to look up my older trading records for 2012 and 2013.
Using The 74% Solution trading system this is how it worked out in 2013. These are actual, real money trades, not hypothetical paper trading.
Total profit $521.70. I made eleven trades averaging 47.43 per trade. Ten winning trades for 90.9% profitable trades. One losing trade for 9% losing trades. The largest winning trade was on December 6 for $181.00.
For 2012 things were much more interesting. Once again these are real money actual trades.
Total profit for the year 2012 was $1978.53. A total of twenty trades were made for per trade profit of 98.92. I had three losing trades for a 15% loss rate. Seventeen winning trades for an 85% winning rate. The largest winning trade came on April 25 for a $505.00 profit.
It is the occasional large winning trade that really makes this system work; that is why it is important to be consistent and take every trade, you never know which one will be the big winner.
In 2013 I was becoming heavily invested in gold and silver carrying a much smaller cash balance, so I was trading very conservatively, which explains the smaller profit total.
In 2012 I actually did a little better than $1978.53; but that included two emini futures trades, which is not part of this program, so I backed those two trades out. The above profit for 2012 is only for trading Exchange Traded Funds as per The 74% Solution manual.
