Eagle December 2016 Trading Log & Results

In Trading Blog by в0 Comments

December was a slow month for us. Our orders didn’t get filled that much and we only had actually 5 trades that yielded positive or negative results. Considering it was post crazy election plus holiday season, we’re glad we kept our profits from 2016 and didn’t churn our account.

Results: Eagle is a 6:6 strategy so most trades we risk 6 points to make 6 points, although a few times because our indicators turned from bullish or bearish to neutral we take erofits or losses early. These trades contribute to our % success rate by taking the weighted average. We were filled 22 times in total, and calculating the weighted average of each trade, we had a total of 16.88 trades.

We were flat for the month.

December we were +2, -1, -6, +6, -6, +5 ES points

Here is our trading log (BERLIN GERMANY TIME (+6 HOURS AHEAD OF EST). Total ES Points Earned:

 

  1. Offering 2201 6:6 ( 2207 stop, 2195 bid) Dec 1 2016 7:11 PM
  2. Daily update: put an offer out, but no fill will look to lower it either overnight or tomm am. Still being cautious as we are at an inflection point in market. With today\'s close we are beginning to resolve tit. So next week will go back to being aggressive. So far +7 for week so not going to put on any dumb trades while market is resolving itself.
