Account 1= For the week -- No trades
Account 2= For the week +5.7%

Account 1 should have had the same trade but for some reason it didn't. I checked the journal but not sure if there was a disconnect around that time or not. Quite frustrating but that's live trading for you. I'm sure if on a demo, it would have traded.

tkbieber started this thread Ok, I have the totals for the month of May for the two live running accounts.

Account 1: No trade this week but there was a gain of +22% for the month so it is now down only -9.8%.

Account 2: There was one trade this week for +5.7% and the total for May was +32.7%.
Grand total= +40.2%

This week was a rather slow week. Account 1 made no trades even though it should have made at least one. I am not sure why the account didn't trigger a trade but that's how it goes sometimes. Account 2 did make a trade so at the moment, account 2 is ahead and doing nicely.


Have a great weekend!

Regards, Travis

You already have more than one loss for the year, and the loss rate is higher than you anticipated. What is your evaluation of that ? Poor luck, bad market ?

Zero loss so far and up 40% in less than 30 days. Not sure where you get this. Oh, if you are talking about account 1, those were different settings and have since changed the settings to where account 2 settings are. We will see in 2 years. That's why it's called a "challenge".
