Live trading room made 9% profit

11th September 2014
Today the live trading room made 9% profit.

Let me quantify the number:

We trade a model portfolio with £5,000.

Each trade we place has a risk of £100.

At 7am Larry Pesavento joined the room and announced that he wanted to sell DAX at 9755 – IF it got there. It never did. His reasoning was simple: it was a 78.6% retracement. At 9755 you also have an AB = CD pattern completing. Combined it is called a GARTLEY pattern. His stop would have been 30 points.

At 09:06 Tom placed his first trade. He wanted to have sold earlier, and he felt strongly about shorting the DAX. However, he could not get the ideal price so he sold a lower price, but in half size. His stop was 10 points.
