What is your P&L?

    Be honest, enough talk about margins and spreads ect ect, do you have the balls to say what your P&L is here?
  2. 1. It's none of your business
    2. Do you really think you're going to get "honest" answers here?
    3. There's already a PnL thread for that. And last I checked NoDoji posts her CL blotter there so you get an idea of what an energy futures trader pnl looks like.

    Ok looks like i touched on a very sensitive topic, and a very sensitive emotional person answered it, ask that question to a trader who is making substantial losses and you get an answer its none of your business.

    Ok i will refrase the question differently then, what would be the best way to measure how 'Good' a trader is? What would be a typical Var to yearly P&L ratio. For example, if you have a daily VAR of 5 Million, but your only making 10 million a year in profits, does this make you a poor trader? average trader? good trader?
    Thats perhaps more to the point.

    Thats very professional of you to say. Not even going to answer that emotional responce.

    Is there a trader here who can answer the reasonable question? thanks.
  5. There you go... something interesting.

    On a monthly basis, I know I did good when my net pnl is 10x my DD.
