October finally showed some activity in the Greed and Fear model portfolio.
The month started with a losing trade, which was an unfortunate one. Getting stopped out and then seeing the market going your anticipated way is always tough. The market pulled back big and then recovered. So trading execution was absolutely correct, it just wasn't rewarded. The same way incorrect execution is sometimes profitable. This is one of the most difficult aspects of trading and not get tempted to ignore trading rules and move stops.
The second trade was a nice winner which took several days from open to close. The third trade was a small winner before closing into the weekend (safety measure).
The yearly result of the Greed and Fear model portfolio has added $1744,50 for the month of October bringing it to a total profit of $7503,50 trading just one E-mini S&P Future.
Today is FOMC day, which we usually never trade due to the higher risk of getting stopped out on either side of the market. Let's focus on November and December to finish this year with at least the current result and possibly a bit more.
