Stock Trading Alerts - Trading Performance

October 30, 2015, 4:31 AM Paul Rejczak

Here is the summary of our trades since the beginning of 2015, along with some more detailed statistics. Open long position, open short position or close long or short position signals are published daily, roughly two hours before the opening of the S&P 500 index trading session (the cash market). Every transaction happens at the opening of the S&P 500 index trading session, excluding stop-loss or profit target executions which may happen "automatically" outside of the cash market's regular trading hours. For more convenient statistical use, signals/transactions prices depict the S&P 500 index. So, individual trades may differ from these prices, depending on what trading instrument investor uses (futures contracts, ETFs, ETNs, CFDs, options etc.).

    Average losing trade: -52.77 index points
  • Ratio average win/average loss: 1.42
  • Maximum consecutive winners: 3
    Maximum consecutive losers: 2

Maximum drawdown on one single transaction is at around 50-80 index points, as it depends on stop-loss level in relation to opening price of that particular transaction. We do not move our stop-loss level down when long position is open. Likewise, we do not move our stop-loss level up when short position is open.

The final outcome (achieved using the entire trading capital and re-investing it into subsequent trades): +12.5%.

The final outcome (achieved using one third of trading capital and re-investing the same amount percentage-wise into subsequent trades): +4.2%:
