Good Morning Citizens,
As you are all well aware, some despots that meander the halls of iBC do not care for me nor my escalation into prominence. My life has been put in danger again, this time from barbarian raiders. As I sit here at the local children’s infirmary, I want my forces to know that you are fighting for a noble cause and your loyalty will be rewarded. On this Christmas Eve, I would like to present a “gift” for your allegiance and bravery. This link provides the code and logic behind a somewhat consistant $ES_F day trading program, although not the greatest profit factor of late, created by Ricky Cheung which he provided for free back in 2010. Below are the results from the last 5 years:
Lastly, here are the latest results on the verdict if Reformed Broker’s book sucks:
I’ll try to finish the book this week and have a review done either by the end of the week or after the new year. Enjoy your family and stay safe.
Peace Be With You All,
Note: Use the code at your own risk. I nor the lords of iBC do not take responsibility for its accuracy.
I know most of you are not familiar with me and my radishes and I apologize for that but let me explain why you should vote for Maximus as “TABBED BLOGGER”. I am a common man, A MAN OF THE PEOPLE OF IBANKCOIN and I will provide a honest, transparent view into my investment strategy and portfolio, which consists of short term calls/puts, option spreads and playing the Gold and Platinum futures markets. I will also provide youtube clips that serve no purpose, e.g.:
Hell yea bitchez. Ride that F’N buffalo wherever it takes you. TO THE MOON! One trade so far today. Shorted the ES for 2 points.
As you may have noticed or not noticed, it has been a while since I’ve posted anything. This is due to my deep and utter sadness for the loss of the world’s greatest golfer. Forgive me. I ended the year with a lackluster 3% gain within the ES/TF/OEX system trading portfolio and a pretty good success rate of 67%. See each trade here. The account did not have the desired performance I was anticipating but I suppose that is to be expected with these outrageous swings we have had of late.
2012 has started off pretty crappy having my largest draw down since inception. Regardless, it feels good to not sit in front of the screen all day and manage this stuff. I do find myself wanting to exit trades early to either cut the loss or take the gain if I am watching the trade. Still working on that to rid the system completely of emotion.
Fly, why the hate for Ohio? Did we not give you that ghey time machine you always talk about?
The state of Pennsylvania has been cursed. It is only a matter of time before Santorum becomes Santorumed.
GOD I love this site. I mean I really fucking love it. So many intelligent people combined with so many fucking weirdos. The Fly’s most recent post “Throw Them To The Fire” is just pure brilliance. You don’t just get market insight from this place but straightforward words to fucking live by.
Now I know I add absolutely nothing to this site but I could give two shits. I’m just using this as a public journal so I can keep some sort of accountability to myself. After 6 years of trying to figure out a style of investing that suits me, I’ve come to the revelation that my mental state can only handle system trading along the lines of the great Woodshedder. So after many months of testing, I’ve gone live with a few futures systems and will soon be live on some spread plays as well.
Since my last update, I’ve done pretty well. Played GOOG calls for a nice gain and the system rode some shorts yesterday as well. The futures account is already up 20%. Results are here
Took Friday off due to barley bombs.
As for today, the machines went long both the ES and TF for a mere 1 minute on TF and 4 minutes on ES. Went long the TF at 746.10 and sold at 747.60 and bought ES at 1265.25 and sold at 1267.25 for a net profit of $342.80. Screen shot below:
On the option front, I messed up what could have been an easy $300 and managed a weak ~$25 on AAPL weekly calls. See below:
And for whoever rated my cocaine video a 1, you’re racist.
My Robots do not like Europe. Any continent that harbors gypsies these robots despise. Nonetheless, my machines have started off wonderfully. Took 2 shorts early this AM in ES and TF. Please do not mock my piker size as this is just the beginning. Screen shot below, click to enlarge:
Shorted 1271.25 on the ES and 751.50 on TF with targets of 1269.25 and 749.50. Both were winners with net profit of $416.
