Just another normal, yet rare occurrence. We can still hope for one last try tonight.

Also, three out of the four days of no trades was prevented by the filter. If it had let the three trade, each one still would have only produced a pip a piece. Either way, it's been a slow week.
always better a no trade then a losing one ...more important on this post!!

Re: College Fund Challenge

tkbieber started this thread Let's see, this weeks calculation for gain is a bit complicated. Humm, oh, it's 0%.

Oh well, rough week on wall street, we might as well have a rough week as well. At least I didn't lose my shirt as some of the guys did on the stock market.

As I always say, I'd rather have no trades then bad ones.

Re: College Fund Challenge

tkbieber started this thread Well, today was a crazy day. I'm running this system on several accounts but I just report on the main two that I publicly display.
Account 1 did make 1 pip.
Account 2 didn't trade.

Another account got a big 0.

I have another account with a different broker that did make 25 pips.

The indicators were just too close to the zero line so made it too difficult for the system to make the trade. When it's this close, many times you will get different results even from the same broker and definitely from different brokers.

This again, has happened before and has nothing to do with world conditions or anything like that. It's just the nature of the beast.

Re: College Fund Challenge

tkbieber started this thread No trade last night.

This week total: +7.4%

This month total so far: +15.8%

15% is nice but it's a slow month for me. Well, there is two more weeks of trading yet so there's still plenty of time for gains yet.
