Re: DEMO Semi-automated S&P daily trading system

ordinaryguy76 started this thread for those interested: the idea is to keep trading on demo until the end of December. If the system proves right (it is at the moment), I will start trading real money, probably with finspreads (they offer 10p stakes as a so-called "trading academy" or something)

ordinaryguy76 started this thread -10 at the moment, so nothing dramatic overnight.
I'm still waiting for the first "bad day" (i.e. full 300 pips loss). Today perhaps ?

ordinaryguy76 started this thread Trade back in the black, barely.
Hit rate for the system is very good at the moment (7 out of 9, I believe). I was looking for something like a bit below 50%. Still early days and it can all change, I know. Good news is, it is possible for me to reduce loss on a bad day by manual tweaking, as long as I'm not too busy with other stuff.
