Today was a volatile day in the stock market and stock index futures. It was surprising to me to see the large range reversals. None of the stock index trading systems were caught up in the volatility of today's trade.
We did have two trades in all portfolios and were 0 for 2. Our most reliable strategy, SR CounterTrend Gold was down 5.2 points today. SR CounterTrend II Crude Oil was down 4 points.
The results below are hypothetical results based on the trading system signals. We trade the strategies and portfolios but we don't trade all systems, all of the time, and do use some discretion when determining which strategies to trades. We also do take additional discretionary trades. Some of the trading system trades shown may be taken while other trades may not be taken, based on our discretion. For this reason, the information here should be considered informational and educational and can represent how our trading software operates on different platforms.
For the purpose of this blog post, since we do use discretion in our live trading: All trades presented are NOT LIVE TRADED IN A LIVE ACCOUNT and should be considered hypothetical.
