OK, we'll switch here for 2006. Have a great year everyone.
I'll start off 2006 with a review of my 2005 trading of this strategy. I've posted my annual results the last few years in the spirit of the thread. 2004 results are here: http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&postid=658387&#post658387
I trade the strategy 100% manually aside from sending my original orders in as a basket. This was my best year ever by quite a bit. However it was mostly due to a few very big days. Without those days, the bottom line was about as expected.

Good luck to all in '06
nice job. i am interested in a long vs short precentage. can you break that out in your numbers? tia
Good job Corey....
Keep it up in 2006.
Great work lescor. Even if you take out your best and worst 5, still excellent results. Good luck in 06. Thanks for sharing.
Lescor - Thanks for posting your results.
It may be helpful to newcomers (like myself) if you would briefly discuss your trading style. Your journal is very long and few would have the fortitude to try to gather this informating by reading through it. Anyway, thanks again for posting.
OK, I'm still doing some tweaking but here is today's results.
11 fills (10 short, 1 long).
8 winners, 3 losers (2 short, 1 long).
8 fills / 1000 share each
5 short / 3 long +986.00
-.35 / + 1.15%
out pretty quick...couple of iffy stops but i'd rather be safe than sorry...
i also exit manually...
blocked 8 of 94 today...mostly oil related...
i look to tweak my sizes for 2006...
Quiet start to 2006. 1 short, +90.
