FtR 10.7 Oct 2015 Signals Update



This month update comes a little bit late because FtR 10.7 system still hold short position in Corn until this morning. However this position is not "heavy" enough to turn the table around. With that, FtR have to endure another draw down month. Looking forward to end this draw down soon, hopefully... :)

FtR 10.7 Sep 2015 Signals Update


Yes, FtR 10.7 suffered losses in September. The win/loss ratio is terrible, only 2 profitable trades out of 8 trades taken. This is trading reality. Low win/ratio doesn't mean one strategy is flaw. Many trend trading strategies have win/loss ratio of about 25-30%. They achieve profitability when the net amount of profits is larger than the net losses losses. However, in my case this month, obviously losses are bigger than profits.

FtR 10.7 Aug 2015 Signals Update



After 2 months of negative return, FtR 10.7 finally reversed the course and registered new equity high in August. I didn't sway from my original trading system when it faces 2 consecutive months of drawdown. I hope this will serve as a good reminder when I am dealing with drawdowns in the future. pat myself on the back :-)

FtR 10.7 Jul 2015 Signals Update


Sorry for the late update. It has been a busy 1st August week for me personally. FtR 10.7 continues its drawdown journey in Jul, retraced about 20% from May top. This is nothing unusual for traders. Will FtR 10.7 reverse its course to U turn into profits? Let the market decides...

FtR 10.7 Jun 2015 Signals Update


Drawdown is inevitable in trading. FtR 10.7 suffered first down month in 2015. This is also the half year performance report. Although not an excellent one, but still managed to stay positive so far. :)

FtR 10.7 May 2015 Signals Update


Ups and downs. This month started with a big win in ZB then market slowly took away all the profits. The last trade, which closed today, bring in very small profits to end this roller coaster May. As consolation, FtR 10.7 still maintain "clean sheet" in 2015. :)

FtR 10.7 Apr 2015 Signals Update



This month, Crude Oil futures, CL rebounds aggressively to test $60 a barrel. FtR 10.7 managed to capture part of the move and grabbed some profit of $3000++ per lot. This trade alone contributed to more than 50% of the total profit for the month of April.

The "usual suspect" ZB also did well for the month of April. Representatives from grain futures, Corn, ZC and Wheat, ZW made some bearish movement while Soybean, ZS remain sideways...

FtR 10.7 Mar 2015 Signals Update

 
FtR 10.7 Trading System ended 1Q 2015 with another profit month, albeit a small one. 4 out of 7 trades turned out to be losses. And I would say this is normal for trend traders. 4 "consecutive losses" too is no strange thing for us. If you are still searching for all win and no losses (holy grail), then probably trading is not for you.

Good day everyone.

FtR 10.7 Feb 2015 Signals Update


I wouldn't deny the fact that I like ZB, 30Y US Treasury Bonds Futures so much. It came to rescue many times, turns a losing month into profitable one. I know this is wrong to be bias toward certain market, since trading is a probability game, You will never know the future in advance. Preferential treatment (placing more weight of your portfolio in certain market that you like) is suicidal in this business. Don't worry, I still obey my position sizing rules. :)

This month, FtR 10.7 managed to recover from early drawdown and became profitable by the end of the month. So far, after 2 months of trading, everything went smoothly. But I will keep myself alert of any drawdown monsters lying just around the corner.

Good day ahead, everybody! :)

FtR 10.7 Jan 2015 Signals Update


FtR 10.7 started year 2015 in a leisurely mode, did only 2 trades in January. Win rate is 50% with one win and one loss. Net result is a small profit. Not bad to start with a winning month at least. :)

FtR 10.7 Dec 2014 Signals Update

Happy New Year to all. FtR Trading System ends 2014 with a DRAWDOWN month. I would say finally, the drawdown monster struck. It hurts even though I know losing month is inevitable. From the results, we again see a short in Crude Oil was the saviour, otherwise the system might lose even more. Nevertheless, for the whole year, FtR Trading System achieves another excellent year, pocketing more than USD 30,000 profit (per lot basis). If you begin with an initial capital of USD 25,000 (I have a subscriber who use USD 15,000 to trade 1 flat lot.), you get more than 100% return on capital. :-) I am looking forward 2015 as a challenging year. So, wish you guys ALL THE BEST!
