    June 2009 Results

    In June we had 13 trades and made a net profit of +41 points.

    Not great but it took little effort so we will continue into July.

    We didn’t trade this system for the last week or so due to holidays, other commitments, etc.

    Secondly, after reviewing June’s results we realised that most trades were break-even, meaning the Initial target was hit, Stop was moved to Break-even and then taken out. This month we will trade 2 lots and take the 1st lot off when the Initial target is hit, move the Stop to Break-even for the 2nd lot and let the it run as usual. This way we hope to come out with a little more profit as more often than not, the Initial target is hit.

    July 2009 Results

    In July we had 6 trades and made a net loss of -91 points thus giving back all of June’s profits.

    We will continue through August and report all trades, as usual.

    In August we had 8 trades and made a net profit of +61 points.

    Not great but it took little effort, we are now back in the Black and will continue into September.

    September 2009 Results

    A rather fruitless September – We had 11 trades and made a net loss of -6 pips.

    SUMMARY
    June – 13 trades = +41 pips
    July – 6 trades = -91 pips
    August – 8 trades = +61 pips
    September – 11 trades = -6 pips

    It is becoming clear (after 4 months) that if one doesn’t catch just one great run each month, 1 loss sets the account back somewhat. However, as we are not losing money (net -4 pips), the system takes little time & effort and we actually like trading it, we will continue with this system for now.

    As usual we will report all trades in October.

    October 2009 Results

    A rather boring but profitable October, see previous post for reason. 3 trades, all (small) winners and a (small) net profit of +38 pips.

    SUMMARY
    June – 13 trades = +41 pips
    July – 6 trades = -91 pips
    August – 8 trades = +61 pips
    September – 11 trades = -6 pips
    October – 3 trades = +38 pips

    Again, not only was it a quiet month but we had none of the type of trades that really make the results matter for this system, a runner to 2nd target. The system is still taking up little time & effort, we still like trading it, so we will continue with it for now. Although we have to admit to being a little frustrated with the “standing still” performance at present.

    As usual we will report all trades in November and December.

    November 2009 Results

    LMT continues to frustrate slightly. It’s now back in the Red again for the second time and also means that after 6 months of trading we are showing a net loss of 125 pips. With an average Stop loss of 60 pips this means we are down around 4% on our account in 6 months of trading.

    SUMMARY
    June – 13 trades = +41 pips
    July – 6 trades = -91 pips
    August – 8 trades = +61 pips
    September – 11 trades = -6 pips
    October – 3 trades = +38 pips
    November – 5 trades = -168

    As mentioned above, LMT is continuing to frustrate slightly and has been, it seems, since version 2.0 of the indicator was released. Again, we had none of the type of trades that really make the results matter for this system, a runner to 2nd target. The system is still taking up little time & effort, we like trading it, so we will continue with it through December. However, we are seriously considering whether to continue with this system in 2010.

    December 2009 Results

    Just one trade to report for LMT in December, a winner for +30 PIPs.

    A vast improvement on the previous month where we suffered a rather large loss. Again, though trades are few and far between even considering it is December.

    We are still showing a new loss for the year (after 7 months trading) of around -100 pips. With an average Stop loss of 60 pips this means we are down around 3% on our account for the period.

    SUMMARY
    June – 13 trades = + 41 pips
    July – 6 trades = – 91 pips
    August – 8 trades = + 61 pips
    September – 11 trades = – 6 pips
    October – 3 trades = + 38 pips
    November – 5 trades = – 168 pips
    December – 1 trade1 = + 30 pips

    We have become more frustrated with this system in the last few months. We were not able to trade the recommended Daily timeframe (as we are sleeping when the Daily candle closes (decision time)) but we did trade the alternate 4 hour time-frame for a period of 7 months. We liked the relaxed approach to this system and also, in the beginning, the returns. A few minutes every 4 hours, place a trade and walk away, or, just walk away (if there are no trades).

    Although not spectacular, in the beginning, the returns were respectable for the effort we were putting in. However, in Q4 2009 (coinciding with a new release of the indicators) the system started to disappoint, not only opportunity (frequency) wise but also performance wise. As mentioned, we liked trading this system, it really was “Low Maintenance Trading (LMT)” but, after reviewing our position at the end of 2009 we have decided that we would not continue with it into 2010 and will remove it from our Systems We Use list.
