5 Minutes a Day Trading – Day 1

Not the best start – trade one of our February campaign resulted in a stop out. However, remembering the strategy only requires six successful trades in the month to show profit there is no cause for concern. And of course, a trader starting the trade strategy from tonight has eliminated one losing trade…..

Here’s how the action unfolded, starting with the trade set up:

Friday night trading did not follow the pattern the strategy seeks. After falling initially, and triggering the sell order, the market rose, suggesting the first move was “false” – the opposite of the analysis.

The record so far stands at:

      Hi Peter – am happy to investigate any observed quirks. In the first 5MADT straegy, we investigated the idea that traders got the EUR/USD reliably wrong at the open of trading. In the current 5MADT, we saw statistical evidence that the German share market, once fully open, tradably sets a “true” direction. Have you noticed any characteristics of trading in the Australia 200 Index that warrant investigation?

    Hi Michael,

      Hi Ratish – as the paper says “9.15 am in Berlin (7.15 pm in Sydney, 4.15 pm in Hong Kong, Singapore and Perth, 8.15 am in London, and 3.15 am in New York)”.
