Thread: 100 Trades Analysis

  1. #1
    So here is another thread I wish to begin of a system that I have been using for some time. It's been great and I am ready to record 100 transactions on here and examine its results.

    The different parameters I would post comprise:
    1. Trade #
    2. pair
    3. short/long
    4. s/l
    5. Original pips risked
    6. Net pips following closing
    7. R (internet pips/original pips risked or 6/5)
    8. Number of winning/losing transactions

    Once 100 transactions we compile all the information and find out how well this egy goes.

    This is from a live account by the Oanda broker

    ps. I will not post any charts cause I am lazy.

    Market to Moving Car Analogy

    So I recall an expression (not positive if it was from here) a trader is like a passenger in a moving automobile facing the back windshield.

    The driver/car is the market. It determines way it wants to go. The trader does not know what the driver is thinking, nor what the motorist is visiting because the trader is able to look what's behind the vehicle.

    Many things exist in the environment or on the roads which may influence the driver's route. Things like speed bumps, oil slickstree branches around the street, rainstorm are examples of the 'obstacles'.

    These obstacles can then affect the driver's mentality. By way of instance, he might drive on an empty street or he might slow down during a thunderstorm. Additionally, the driver may have different moods during his experience.

    As the passenger, he can't see where the motorist is 'moving', but he knows where the motorist has 'been'. He could do is predict the direction given.

    So in nature, traders are the pessenger in the car facing backward. And the driver/car is the market itself. All its challenges and the environment are things that can influence the driver's route like economic reports, political or social events, or just plain trading.

    If we consider that analogy, we could see how foolish it's tryin to predict the market. The best opportunity we've as traders is to look at where the market (driver) has been and deduce from that upcoming direction. If for instance, the vehicle is currently starting to turn and the street is curving, we know that the driver is currently entering a shift in management. If the the vehicle is slowing down, rates again, slows, then rates again, we may say the motorist may be in a traffic jam.

    Likewise, we must be able to look at past prices to determine where the future of the market may be heading. Price history behave as clues exactly like the environment the passenger see in the bottom windhield. Things like momentum, resistances and service provide clues to future market direction.

    In conclusion, traders should immediately pick up the hints that the market is giving via its previous path and utilize sound trading logic to predict it is future movement. The logic might be organized into the trading system of individual. Provided that he follows that logic . So we can observe how traders that trade emotionally with greed or anger, is somewhat like a passenger who is wrong in calling the motorist's movement and trying to seek 'revenge' at the market. Remember, the driver does not care what 'we' believe, it only cares about where he is going.

    With patience, consistency, and logic, soon the driver and the passenger will be in sync with one another, and the road to success will be within grasp.

    Well, 'basically' I exchange on the daily

    I use Oanda to exchange nevertheless Metatrader 4 (using IBFX pairs) for analysis

    I exchange all of the majors and its crosses that exist in both IBFX and Oanda

    I follow fad, I add on winning positions, and decrease losing ones

    I'm 99.9% technical. I tried to be both fundamental and technical in the start of my trading 'profession' but that I was dumbfounded in the size of fundamental information that come into play. I really think that to be a fundamental trader you need to be economically 'smart' which I'm not

    And that I don't take any interest nor cover it. I basically keep track of interest deduction and credits and be certain it is not taken into my account. I am a muslim trader, and as muslims, we can not touch interest

    I reckon that's all for today

    The Power of Scaling into Winning Positions

    I've just been trading for an extremely short time (few months actually). And I have already been in this forum as the beginning. I have learned a lot about systems, money mangement and plogy both from forums and books that I read.

    The 1 thing I realized is that, all systems are pretty much similar in construction. You've got your entrance, activate, stop loss principles, and also take profits (if applicable). Systems, if you stick with it long enough, do function in the long term.

    However, I have come to see that system entrance principles is the least important feature of your system. We are apt to want to get into position at the 'best' possible time. We spend so much time inventing trading entrance with lots of confirming indiors. The more complied the entrance is the less powerful the system. This is based on my observation however.

    So how can you devise systems which may bring massive returns but at the same time having easy entry rules? The solution is inventing rules of scaling into transactions that are receptive.

    Before I get into that I know there are individuals out there that scale out of rankings, to safeguard awarded amount of profits that they define. They would enter transactions with numerous lots and scale and leaving the lot until they are stopped outside. But, I do not think in this method because you are decreasing your big profits, for the interest of protecting small profits.

    In my limited experience, I come to feel that scaling into 'winning' transactions have become the most effective egy. Notice that I say winning transactions. By winning transactions, I suggest that positions which have gone your direction and gives position entrances. This explains trend traders make out big when tendencies happens about 30-40 percent of their time. When a trend starts, trend traders take advantage of every probable chances to grow their transactions. You have a trade that brought gains to you when they're finally stopped outside. In essence, in a trend, trend traders are trading many occasions.

    So spend some time inventing rules on how you will add into winning positions. I guarantee you that the outcomes would be phenomenal.

    Trade #1
    GBPUSD
    Stopped out @ 1.9013
    Web Pips: -31 pips
    R: -0.36

    This trade has been obviously stopped out at a different value than my S/L listed at 1.8960. This is because a mistake I made. I remember I thought that I fixed the error and took a break. A mistake yet. I would maintain the trade, if the stop still holds. Oh well, I want to learn to double check my transactions before taking breaks.

    Trade #2
    GBPJPY
    Transfer S/L to 224.20
