The Art Of Trading Alerts Service Performance For The Week Of May 18th

I was not happy with this week's performance. Started out very well and crapped out late wednesday and thursday. WHY? Simple ANSWER: Over trading and fighting the tape! Ironically: these are two things i RARELY ever do. Mistakes will happen(a lot!) in trading.

I know exactly what i did wrong and I will make the necessary tuning and adjustments to get back on track.

This is the 7th week i have been running this service and this is my 2nd down week. 5 up weeks but more importantly as long as i manage to take losses in a controlled and professional manner, i will always have many positives to take away from a bad week.


I will take my losses but remember that trading is a long journey which it's fruits are not enjoyed in one day's or one's week's results but over a period of many months.

long jrcc 21.05 20.63 -2

long tza 29.56 28.74 -2.77

So on a $100,000 account and using $10,000 into each alert: This week saw a loss of $1300 which is a very acceptable draw down in my book but i am definitely not happy and know i can do much much better.

Next week, i will be going back to basics

When were your trades made? And how do you know what exact prices you got? Did you get prices off of a chart or are they actual prices in your account? Thanks.

hi mo.

look carefully at the space between the trades. the wider spaces is the different days. for example: NFX and PCX were on monday. SLG, ZION and CPX were on tuesday. etc etc. These are trades i executed personally.
