A quick summation for no reason other than I have documented 25 round trip trades on here since starting this thread.

Average P&L 33.0%
Sharpe Ratio 100.7%
Average duration 23.4 days
CAGR 8472%

As I said at the outset, I'm proud of my trading, with broadly consistent results in the months before and after beginning to document trades here. Always happy to discuss ways to improve the results though.

Incidentally, there are 1100 views of this thread but only two comments other than mine.
