cheers, although at this point it's now a hobby rather than a dream/goal.

However, looking like my 4th winning day in a row at the moment.
Up 33 ticks on oil still with random entry.

Can't remember having 4 winning days in a row when I was a 'technical trader'!

Maybe T/A gets one in at exactly the wrong times due to people manipulating the price, so random entry is superiror!(?) God knows....

Having fun whilst it lasts, though.

GL with it. What are you doing for risk control? fixed stops/target? random/discretionary/volatility?

I have to be honest random entry systems are really not my thing, but if it works for you... Anyway, great results and good to see you posting trade results. Maybe you should re-think the hobby approach, with a little size you'd be earning decent money

Getting in at random pre-determined levels.
Stops always tight.
Exit discretionary, but I aim to try to hold the trade if it's winning for at least as much as my stop loss.
I know it's just luck, but it has been a bit of an eye-opener.

Before, If I had have gotten 4 straight winning days, averaging 50 odd ticks per day with fairly tight stops using some new charting method, i'd have thought i'd stumbled upon the holy grail!
That it's been done with random entry is kind of disconcerting.

Shouldn't be disconcerting - you're proving the importance of money management in the overall scheme of things.
