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

ordinaryguy76 started this thread I can see how beneficial it would be if I were able to split my trade in two parts - take half profits at, say, +50 and move SL to b/e.
On the other hand, risk would be twice as big and it would make the system even less automatic.
I need to do more research and figure out a way to backtest such strategy.

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

ordinaryguy76 started this thread OK, I was stopped out for +1. This time, it was a good decision to have my SL moved as S&P dived afterwards. Interesting day.
Account valuation: £10,344.02.

That's more of an average/bad week. System was wrong about direction twice (out of 2 !) so far. Let's see how it fares tomorrow.

New trade entered:
13/12/2011 21:00
Sell 1 S&P500 @ 1224.4, SL 1239.4
Buy order 1 S&P500 @ 1240.4, SL 1225.4

Next week, I'm moving to 2nd floor open plan office at work, so no more monitoring my trades during office hours. Can be interesting. Also, I'm planning to increase risk to 3% per trade (i.e. trade £2 per pip). It's a demo anyway.
