Free Friday January 2017 Update

Happy Friday!

For this Free Friday edition I will just share an update of the first 7 Free Friday strategies. One month is not indicative of anything and these are just meant for educational purposes (strategies may or may not have gone through the entire rigor of the robustness/validation techniques described on this site).

I post the strategies on twitter and you can follow me here: @dburgh.

Free Friday #1: eMini S&P500 +$625.00
Free Friday #2: Gold Futures +1,630.00
Free Friday #3: Oil Futures -$310.00, +$2,940.00, +$470.00
Free Friday #4: US Bond Market No Trades
Free Friday #5: Nasdaq Futures No Trades
Free Friday #6: Russell Futures -$790.00,-$490.00,-$765.00,+$310.00,+$985.00,-$315.00
Free Friday #7: SPY ETF No Trades

January Total: +$4,290.00

All in all, not a bad month. A few things to consider… 1. One month(11 trades) is by no means telling, but it is sure nice to see profits. 2. Not all these strategies went through the full spectrum of validation techniques. 3. Strategy #6 only has 1 rule so it is much more common for its entry condition to be satisfied; hence the larger number of trades. 4. All of these results based on 1 contract traded

If you missed Free Friday#8 where I broke down one of the new validation techniques, Randomized Monte Carlo testing, then please take a look here: Free Friday 8 – Randomized Monte Carlo

Enjoy the weekend,
Dave

Thanks for reading,

Risk Disclosure

FUTURES AND FOREX TRADING CONTAINS SUBSTANTIAL RISK AND IS NOT FOR EVERY INVESTOR. AN INVESTOR COULD POTENTIALLY LOSE ALL OR MORE THAN THE INITIAL INVESTMENT. RISK CAPITAL IS MONEY THAT CAN BE LOST WITHOUT JEOPARDIZING ONES FINANCIAL SECURITY OR LIFE STYLE. ONLY RISK CAPITAL SHOULD BE USED FOR TRADING AND ONLY THOSE WITH SUFFICIENT RISK CAPITAL SHOULD CONSIDER TRADING. PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS.

Hypothetical Performance Disclaimer

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN; IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM. ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK OF ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT TRADING RESULTS.
