Year Ends of a Very High Note — Record Profits, Many Markets and Charts

December 30, 2016 — by Troy Noonan0

Strong gains across the board to end the year

This is a follow up to yesterday’s post.  The Russell eMini ended it’s session, one and done, hitting its goals with its first trade of the day, winning its 15th session in a row and finishing the year with all new record profit levels.  Can’t ask for more than that!

  • Crude Oil Futures win the last 16 of 18 Trades

Crude Oil Futures also ended with another winning session to end the year at new record profit levels.  It was a modest gain on a slow day, hitting two target ones and then stopping out at profit protection levels on the first two trades.  That had us taking what the market wanted to give us and quitting positive for the 12th session in a row, or 15th session in a row when including our extra Crude Oil Inventory Report Session which won again yesterday (see video in prior post).  Target 2 traders were up + 1.46, $1460 per contract and have won 16 of the last 18 trades.  That’s a great way to end the year!

Other Highlights to our last session of the year:

  • EURUSD continues to give us good trades during the US Session, going one and done again today for + 35 pips
  • GBPUSD also was one and done for its final session of the year, hitting all three of its targets and adding even more with a nice running trailer.

The big message I’d like everyone to take away from these examples is that if you look closely, you’ll notice how ‘the same’ each chart looks.  We are using the same setups on all these charts, trading them the same way, following the same guidance and structure.  Notice how on all these very different markets, we are able to make efficient work of our tradeplans, typically finishing each session quickly and profitably.  Our philosophy is to grow our equity by being able to quit positive on MOST sessions while controlling our drawdowns. We treat our swing trading the same way using the great CPT setups and combining them with tradeplans that tell us when and how to trade each chart.

We are looking forward to a prosperous 2017.

Happy New Year!!
