Latest Thoughts & Game Plan For The Fall

This year we have booked seven winners and taken one loser. Statistically, we were due to get a trade wrong. Seven winners and one loser is an 88% batting average. Our historical batting average is 79% so we are right where we want to be, actually a little better. The total return is 162.75%. So the per trade return is 20.34% and the average winner is 21.48%. Expect to see us pick up the action in September as volatility appears to be on as we move from summer to fall trading.
