0.21 Sharpe ratio is not so good.

But the returns are.

There was a possible set up for a buy but no trade today because there is still the open buy trade from the 13th, currently -140.

It could be worse. I'll see what tomorrow brings.

tkbieber started this thread I forgot to include the $2M account.

The story with that is, on the 13th it didn't take a buy. So after it went down about 60 or 70 pips, I made a manual buy. Therefore, the EA did make a buy last night for +29 pips.

Up 16.53% for the month.

Look, someone who doesn't understand Sharpe ratio or what makes a good trading strategy.

Going to be a news packed day today. Bank of England rate minutes at 0830 GMT followed by the Feds big press conference during the US session. One way or the other I reckon we are going to see some big moves in the long trade from the 13th.
