Our first month is over. It encompassed the period between October 12 and November 9, 2010. Twenty days of trading during which we placed 46 trades and lost 18, for a 60.87% accuracy. My original goal was to make $86.00 or 55.13% of my starting amount. Instead I made $51.80 or 33.21%.
Test Month 1, in general, was an eye opening disappointment. Don't get me wrong, I sure as Hell won't complain if I can make 33% every month. However, my performance was way below my target. Maybe my expectations were unreal or maybe my systems still needs some tweaking. I am hoping it is the latter. Let's see what the next 4 weeks bring.
