  1. Hopefully (for him) 12 of his last 9 trades weren't losers.
     
  2. Even though its Saturday I think futures are already up the usual 6 premarket points.
     
  3. Sounds to me like he's a gov't statistician.... or he's been drinking WAYYYYY too much koolaid. If it's the latter, I bet he eats the "yellow" snow too !
     
  4. Have you done the math? It only takes a few lines of code. It is not significantly profitable, but it has been profitable since the middle of September. Do not try this going forward unless you have studied and tested it properly. Past performances is no guarantee etc....

    Data shown included commission and slippage.

    It just so happens that 9 out of the last 12 NG openings have been higher than the previous close.

    Here are the gaps in order, Dec 3-18:
    -18,+112,+197,+118,+35,+48,-48,+212,+98,-36,+88,+46.
    :D
