Re: Net Trap Variant live results from 17/05/10

mark120169 started this thread Ok RH trade match variant results summary up to 30/7/10 attached. Slightly higher than "pre budget" results friday because RH fiddled his reults again, so I have to match too despite it making my results look better than they should be (or worse for the 15 limit and under variants that have been robbed of a days pips )

I will add a summary later but HNT40 is still the top performer with +300 pips for 11 weeks and +353 pips for June and July 2010 only.

This is compared to VNT @ +57 for 11 weeks and +80 for June and July 2010.

I apologise if this seems like cheating but to keep trade matched results I have to only compare like for like trade days.

I kinda feel guilty for my forced fiddling making some variants look better than others. Sorry.

Hey ho.....we are still pissing all over VNT's parade.

Like i say , look at the results and make your own trading decisions. I have and it aint VNT!

Re: Net Trap Variant live results from 17/05/10

mark120169 started this thread Here we are, RH trade match variant results summary up to 06/8/10 attached.

In a rare week VNT actually gained a little bit of ground on the variants for the last 12 weeks. It had to happen! However yet again Wed 4th was another day VNT should have taken a -30 bullet (and larger limit -40 stop variants with it) but was declared a no trade day by RH as NT+H trade!

Mixed feelings as this has also massaged SNT, HNT and NT40 results better than they should have been along with VNT, but also peeved because LNT, MNT and Instant would have banked their pips so have been robbed of a days takings.

But to keep apples for apples I have to trade match variant results.

Like i say , look at the results and make your own trading decisions. VNT is still seriously lagging having moved up to 11th of 15 from last weeks 12th of 15 for 12 weeks of data.

Re: Net Trap Variant live results from 17/05/10

Mark, thank you for hard work, this is very interesting. May I make a couple of points, as I have "studied" Nettrap between Jan to May before . ( you can downloard this excel sheet at the public forum, if you like to)
I want to make sense how NetTrap would possibly works (within my understanding..)

I have pick up some results from between Jan to May (439 pips)

Details: (I will ignore less than 30 pips)

-30 pips 18 times

30 -39 pips 7 times
40-49 pips 3 times.
50 pips 11 times

21 win and 18 lost, this isn't so great, isn't it ? but still made over 400 pips ! Because of R:R, I think.

My concern is that you might over-optimise NetTrap for a last couple of months (increasing stop to 40 etc) Although your magic number of stop 33 pips are so tempting, I still think R:R should be at least equal.

Morning breakout strategy seems rather common strategies but people recommand R:R is at least same.
eg. http://forex-strategies-revealed.com/

This most interesting discovery from your work for me is instant Nettrap - this is amazing but please please change to R:R to 25:25, if possible. ( you have got another 25 pips today ?)

Thanks

P.S. I wonder if someone make a back testing for, say, at least last 6-12 months.

You have to take into consideration what can happen using a 40 stop. I assume you are thinking that a VNT -30 now = a varaint -40 ? This is sometimes the case, but look at the spreadsheet carefully like Mike D has and you will notice something. Compare NT40 for example. Still has a positive RR , max win 50, max loss 40. So slightly better than 1 to 1.

This "thing" is the massive difference it makes when becasue of whipsaws VNT takes a -30 and NT40 does not get stopped out and banks in positive territory.

Look at the data line for 17/6/10. VNT -30 vs NT40 +20 (+19.9 exact) . This is a whopping +50 pips NT40 gains over VNT for one day! So now lets look at all the days this has happened in the last 12 weeks.

2/6/10.......VNT -30 vs NT40 +1 .......difference +31

7/6/10.......VNT -30 vs NT40 +9 .......difference +39

10/7/10......VNT -30 vs NT40 -10.7....difference +19.3

17/6/10......VNT -30 vs NT40 +19.9...difference +49.9

14/7/10......VNT -30 vs NT40 -9.......difference +21

15/7/10......VNT -30 vs NT40 -12......differnce +18

This is not including a few other -30 days scratched off by RH NT+H that also gave NT40 an advantage. This is a difference of +178.2 pips over 12 weeks. Now lets look at the -30 days vs the -40 days for the same period.

19/5/10 NT40 -40 (-10)

26/5/10 NT40 -40 (-10)

23/6/10 NT40 -40 (-10)

24/6/10 NT40 -40 (-10)

3/8/10 NT40 -40 (-10)

So that's a extra -50 pips NT40 took over VNT for 12 weeks. The total net effect is still a whopping +128.2 pips that NT40 has over VNT for 12 weeks.

Maybe in time the super optimised HNT40 will slip back compared VNT or NT40. Who knows? But we shall see come December when we have 6 months of forward traded variant data.

What this data is is how the market is acting now, in 2010 and it will change slightly monthly or weekly, but always a picture will be clear of some direction to trade with SL & TP with the FNT system.

Yes, yes, I know you mean, just as if big traders start to warm up to hit NetTrap stop then start games. yes, 50:40 might be a good idea.

There are other parameters as well, which date of the week would be a bad results etc ?
Anyway, Thanks to your contribution, we are able to see the big picture now.

Re: Net Trap Variant live results from 17/05/10

mark120169 started this thread Ok.

A quick pre budget variant vs VNT report. Difficult to see where RH can take his left handed trade this week with three VNT -30 (-90 pips, ouch!). My money is on Mondays MA -2 being indecisive smashing his all time 1.5 pips clear indecisive record. We shall see Monday.

But so far for the First two weeks of August VNT is running at about -35 pips.

Top variants are :

MINT +30

NT40 +5


It's great to see one of my TNT recommended products sitting @ +5 in a difficult month. That's around +40 over VNT if you had taken my advice and traded NT40 in August rather than VNT. Even scaled to 2% MM this is +30 over VNT result.

HNT40 is running @ - 39 sor far, so pretty much tracking VNT.


Bottom variants are :

SNT33 - 88

HNT33 -78 (sorry guys, I did suggest HNT40 with scaled position @ 75%)

Official variant results Monday evening. Like I say look at the results and make your own trading decisons.

Have a good weekend all.

Mark

Re: Net Trap Variant live results from 17/05/10

mark120169 started this thread Hello bit busy so will post this quickly then edit a few more comments and explanations later, cross checking noticed some pips allocation errors in some variants favour whilst adding NT40/45 and creating NT U /U (unpublished this one.) These are highlighted in light turquoise. Will explain later.

RH took back some VNT credibility this week taking a -98 on the chin and missing out on a +50 that should have been a trade (IMHO I did!)

Still as usual all variants trade matched to VNT RH results so one days winning for all scratched. But this does not bode well for VNT 13 week and June/ July / August results, now both in negative territiory so might explain why we have 100 members now with 16 waiting to join!

Only one variant made profit last week, MINT. All others took a hit but none as bad as VNT -98 pips.

HNT40 is still top dog but Phil8 NT40/45 is new and doing very well, better than NT40 and is now in the spreadsheet.

VNT 13 weeks -31 pips

VNT June / July / Aug TD -8 pips

Top Variant same period :


HNT40 13 weeks +257.3 pips

HNT40 June / July / Aug TD +309.3 pips.

Mark I just want to check that I'm reading the spreadsheet correctly - are those figures at the bottom the cumulative results for the period 17/05 to 13/08? If so, looking at the "scaled to 2% MM" results, INT is still top dog overall. But with only 206.5 pts since May it's still way below my minimum expectation of 100 pts a month average.

I hope I'm reading the results incorrectly?! Please tell me I'm wrong and that some of the variants actually got more than 400 pts cumulative for the period 17/05 to 13/08, scaled to 2%MM?
