We are back up to full size trading again now that the summer has long passed. These next 3 months are often the best of the whole year. So we are ready to make a serious number of pips. The start of December has been OK with over 200 pips banked already, but that means that we should be in for a bumper haul in the last 2 weeks.
The FOMC event tomorrow (16th December at 2pm EST) should move the markets enormously. It will be a wild ride but we should be able to bank a large number of pips once the direction of the markets have been established.
For those of you who trade our weekend gap strategy – this again was in profit. There was only one viable trade setup this last Sunday (13th Dec). The GBPUSD pair quickly reached it’s full profit target for a 25 pip gain. Not a huge result but it continues the winning run and this free to download, manual strategy is now up 2432 pips in 2015.
The figures and graph below show the results of our automated trading for the year up to the end of May 2015 (we will update this at the end of the year). At that time we were up 41.5% which equates to a profit of £6,219.80 on an account of £15,000. The below figures are taken directly from one of our clients accounts (GKFX) who started with £15,000 in January and now has £21,219.80 with a further £378.20 in open trades. Not bad for a totally automated process with no ongoing input required:
2014 has now come to a close. What a challenging year it proved to be. Our newest Expert Advisor – PROF X5 had a poor year losing 1639 pips. However, we still have enormous faith in this EA and high hopes for a stella 2015. The market conditions (whipsaw volatility) are the worst for most EA’s and Prof X5 was no different. This is the benefit of trading multiple strategies – when one or two are not performing well – others compensate. The net total result for the year was 5482 pips, an increase of 21% on 2013. See below for the individual EA results. If you have traded before you will understand how incredible and potentially life changing these results are.
Individual trading strategy results for 2014 were as follows:
PROF X5 -1639
Strategy 1 1852
Strategy 2 414
Strategy 3 2948
