trading update

February was a strange trading month. In total 9 limit orders were placed on 9 different days (because of the one trade per day max rule), but sadly none of them were filled(!) That includes the roughly 5 most significant movers of February. So the anticipated direction was correct each time, but the intra-day pull back just wasn't deep enough to get a fill.

trading updateThe volatility of December still had its effect on January. As explained in earlier posts, it's difficult to place a sensible stop loss when the market whips around and will likely hit any stop, whether it's a long or short-trade stop. In those market conditions it's best to sidestep for a while. But on two separate, more quieter days, the moment was right to take two trades which were very profitable bringing in a total of $3613,00. 

trading updateThis update can be short. Due to the high volatility there wasn't any trading in December. So, the yearly result is still the same as last month. On to the next year, 2019! See the results for 2018 for detailed monthly results.

trading updateThe markets are still tough, whipping around and hitting stop losses above and below the market. Luckily for the Greed and Fear portfolio things turned out just fine.

trading updateOctober started with two losing trades, which were later compensated with one winning trade. Just like the textbook says, keep your losses small and let your winners run. But in reality, trading is never that easy because this month could very easily have hurt your trading result on several occasions.

This page will show all actions performed by the Greed And Fear TradeBot. The tradebot is still in development and it will take some time for this to be integrated into the website. The current idea is to have the Greed and Fear Tradebot post al its actions to the Twitter stream. Development is going very well, and things look very promising.
