System trades: Safety first

In the past two weeks the trading system we’ve been calling Safe Simple Trading has stopped working. We can’t recommend it to our subscribers until we fix it. In the third week of February 2020 the markets changed dramatically, nominally because of the spread of the coronavirus around the world. Up until that time the Safe Simple system had been working like a charm. From Jan. 2 to Feb. 17, the hypothetical trades accumulated profits for the year-to-date of a bit more than $7,100, trading a single lot on each … Continue reading

But we also want to use these numbers for a different group of traders — people who can place an order in the morning, but can’t (or don’t want to) … Continue reading

System trades for Jan. 29, 2016

A moderately successful day trading the Oil futures, at least for intraday traders, but stopped out in the S&P500 mini-futures for a modest loss.

Aggressive intraday traders could have gotten part of the first move down toward … Continue reading
