Historical Performance

Following is a chart of the net gain for trading a single lot Emini S&P using the trading setup. As usual, it is done with one tick disadvantage and round turn commission of $5 to make the result realistic. It is clear how strong the bias is even in the face of a 7 year strong rally.


Statistics for the basic system:

  • Winning rate at 40%
  • Trigger on average 40 times a year
  • Annualized return of about $1600 a year (after slippage and commission as stated above)
