Open house, I pulled about 600 points out of the dji, and ftse, in the month closed the shorts this morning.
Two trades on each index, one log one short.

Any one want to share?

I managed to call the 22 Aug bounce on FTSE100 at 6400 which only really got going on 5 Sept. Then reversed it on 19 Sept at 6640 (+240pts) and again yesterday for the same again.
All good risk reward trades. At 6450, I’m currently +520pts in 6 weeks. Very pleased. Not going to get complacent though. Still risking the same. Rather than trading up, keeping profits aside in case of rainy day.

Octobers numbers are in!

501, points for October, ftse and Dow, I thought we might go a little higher but had to pulled out, might still regret that.
2 longs, 1 on each, bit of a slow start, satisfactory.
Any one else?

Ive no idea if I qualify as "profitable", other than the obvious (in front rather than behind on points), long story short, I started this about 4 years ago, realised I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, stopped "gun slinging!", and went on a mission to learn as much as I could, I wanted 5 years in the "classroom, (reading, working, on anything I could), my hand was forced somewhat to start a little earlier than idve liked, (physical issues with my work), ive learnt a lot here, but wish I went about something's/ read some works sooner.
Iam slightly obsessive about things and have a "rain man like", thing for numbers and lists.
but this is literally my second month, using everything as planned, if iam here in a year, ill be very happy.
some clever people in here, and nice too!

Had a stinker all round really, got out too early on both the dji, and ftse, got back in to dji at least a day after I should have, pulled out the ftse WAY before I should've, missed the re entry got the 2nd still in.
ftse 27 pts
dji 303 pts, I missed loads by second guessing and not trading, (WEAPON!).
Short the ftse
short the dow.
In summary, just made rookie calls, bit pissed with myself!.
As a reason not an excuse ive had a full on month, maybe that was it?, maybe I just sucked.
Over it now, onwards!
Happy days!

Happy new year all.
late entry's and non farms cost me, (yndtp), as Ripptoe used to say, down 253 pts.
Ive made a note, it wont happen again.
Enjoy

we can all say what we made its meaningless. Would b better to give your short/medium/long predictions positions. I will start medium term ie by feb ftse will retrace to 6450 ish i am short on march contract if we go higher will add. Whose next to have a go ???

I disagree, it may actually make Shadowman happy to know how others have done..
so what of your prediction, how does that help anyone? you think its gonna go down, I think its gonna go down and then up..who gives a monkeys what i think?

Basically that's the point?.
I have no idea what would be considered good numbers from the 2 markets iam mentioning, none at all?.
So maybe ill post them up here and someone might say that's ok, or that's not so good, if someone else is posting similar numbers and is clearly respectable, (its easy enough to see through the paper thin vale of vanity some people indulge in).
then I guess its a start.
I tried to google it but couldn't find anything either.
ive no interest al all in predictions, that just dosnt make sense
That's what the above is about.
Cheers

Evening all!,
fess up time!, in the interests of clarity not now perhaps, but for when and if the "T2w Spanish inquisition team", rock up at my crib, (oh that's young folk talk for house!, innit), ive added 2 currency pairs to my trading, the numbers wont be included as this is ftse dow newbie thread but if the hammer falls, I want it all up front.
Januarys numbers are 1002 pts for the indices only, was a busy month lots of jumping in and out, its very hard to stick to the plan no?, I find iam "sort" of sticking to it?, I wasn't expecting it to be so hard!.
