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?
No you are correct. Scaled to 2% MM INT is top (as it runs 30 stop) so as a like for like results trade HNT40 is best triggrt variant @ +193 scaled.

That's it unfortunately for 13 weeks. Back end of May was a tough time for all and August so far is proving equally as tough.

Also HNT40 live is above INT now as yesterday was no trigger day but INT has to go in and took a -30, so INT now sits @ +176.5.

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

mark120169 started this thread Official matched variants results time. No funny business by RH this week so will qiuckly talk about August T/D results and June / July /August TD results.

Top performer overall for last 14 weeks is HNT40 still. It is sitting on +287 pips vs VNT on +16 pips. Something seems to have changed In June onwards that seems to not suit VNT so well. Maybe the Summer season which is strange because these were the advertised big VNT hitters in 2009.

For June , July and August to date HNT40 is sitting on +300 pips more than VNT! Yes that's correct. VNT as of last week is officially on +39 pips for this period, HNT40 is on +339.3 pips. So VNT has given away 300 pips to something with a poor RR ratio. It seems the way Cable is working at present it likes to whipsaw more than 30 pips and only regularly moves 25-29 pips in our favour before retracing, as these results bare out.

This will not last forever but is certainly the trend for now.

Top August TD performers

1st MINT +30
2nd MNT +20
3rd MNT33S +17
4th NT40 & NT40/45 Joint -11
5th INT -14

7th HNT40 -37

8th VNT -41


For August both NT40 and NT40/45 seem quite good performers @ -11 pips as this August has seemed a bitch of a Month to trade in.

Mark I've been splitting my stake 50:50 between NT40 and HNT40, but according to your figures I'd be better off long term (for now) sticking it all on HNT40.

cheers

True. HNT40 is somewhere around +75 for August after last week, NT40 is around +56.

HNT40 is the the best over 15 weeks and with +399 pips and is even higher than that for June/ July August. Although we still have 1 trading day left in August.

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

mark120169 started this thread Ok. Variant RH trade matched results time. Nothing much to reoprt from the RH VNT, just a few pips more than expected which has also help variants too.

Big news is 25 limit variants had a huge week, with HNT40 & HNT33S banking +118 pips and INT banking a full house with +125 pips.

This now means than HNT40 is the first to break the 400 pip limit @ 15 weeks with +405 pips. INT is tops for 2% MM with 347 pips for 15 weeks.

For 3 month results HNT40 is just tops for pure pips, @ +457 , thats an average of 152 p/m and 35 a week. INT is aclose second with +447 pips but is much better mm% wise as it only runs 2% vs HNT40 2.67%.

Unless tomorrow is a no trade there is still this one day left for full August and summer results.

VNT still lagging. As I always say look at the results and make you own trading decisions.

M

Edit. As Monday was BH No Trade and today (tuesday 31/8/10) was no trade these figures should be final for August. But wont close off yet in case RH pulls a left hand trade today for MA under 1 for +50 pips on VNT's tally (And I would not be suprised if this happend. )

For information, the optimum settings for the last three weeks have been 1: Limit40 stop35 (+150) 2: limit 35 stop 35 (+130) 3: limit 25 stop 35 (+129) 4: limit 50 stop 35 (+128)...am not convinced that going back 6 months or so is that helpful as the last 2 months on all of the systems I use have not been profitable, whilst previously some were having remarkable results. I plan on updating my spreadsheets daily and changing my levels as and when the info shows that the markets are changing. Also, the results have very little bearing on how much the MA moved by. A 40 MA movement of just 1 over the period resulted in a profit of 6 whilst a movement of 27 resulted in a loss of 8. The above results had no interference during the trade - just closed out at 8.30 as per the instructions.

Interesting, the main thing is what you are live trading daily, and making profit on in practice. I have traded HNT40 @ between £2-£3 a pip for the whole of August and back end of July to good effect. The 25 pip limit is stil my favourite and i've always said there is a optimum stop between 35and 40 pips but until I have 12 months of live data (mid May 2011) I won't try and second guess what it is.
