The most (and about the only) valuable thing about a series 3 is, you get to see lots and lots of account statements. And winning traders account statements all look the same. Like this one I just stole. http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/attachment.php?s=&postid=111034 So here's the system about 30K on 1000 trades starting with $7500. (You can use it on anything) The system has 5 averages you must hit. Go long, then short and keep alternating. You don't need quotes or charts, just 5 windows to track your average. 1. Average Win 303.04 rules, when average win falls below 303.04, you must hang on longer, when it is above, you must take profits quicker 2. Average Loss 127.35 rules same as win only backwards 3. Largest win 2375.00 rules, no matter what, if you have a 2375 profit you must take it (this one's hard, because you must always be trying for it to make the other averages work right) 4. Largest loss $400 rules, you know the rules 5. Average trade win or lose 32.14 rules same deal, but use more as a guidline to help you hit the other averages. The hardest part is getting the 2375 win, especially if your average win is already over 303.04 and the system is telling you to take quicker profits, but a good system trader will take the window of opportunity when the system has an average win of higher than 303.04 and hang on to try to get the 2375 profit, because he knows even if the trade turns into a loss, he only has to keep his average around 303.04.
