Performance for second half of 2010 at JadeFX

January 7th, 2011

Just a quick graph of the 6 months of trading that made up the second half of 2010 at JadeFX. The account have during this period exclusively been running scalpers and 85% of the trading have been by The Channel Scalper trading EURGBP.

The funny thing is that the graph above states about 104% gained when in reality 143% was gained. MyFXBook calculates something very differently here and I have reported it to them. Not that 104% would be shabby but the account really have 143% more dollars now and I haven’t deposited any. $150 have even been taken by JadeFX from the account to pay for six months of their VPS. Strange.

143% gives a average gain of 16% per month, which I am satisfied with. Over 12 months this would give about 500% :)

Rather nice December at JadeFX

January 7th, 2011

Update of my JadeFX accounts scalping performance under December. Prior years I have shut down EAs in early to mid December, but this year I decided to trade almost as usual. I ran quite a few backtests using Dukascopy tickdata and concluded that it wasn’t riskier to trade this month than any other (with my strategies that is, others might perform differently). Up until December 16th I thought I had made a excellent decision with a gain of 30% during the month, but that day and the also the following I lost about 17% of the account and was down at 7% gained during December. The latter half of the month added a little pips here and there and ended up at 12.53% gained.

The biggest losses came from XBars MA Scalper trading GBPUSD and RSI MA Scalper trading EURUSD. A version of settings for The Channel Scalper trading EURGBP also got hit hard. Prices was trending significantly during the normal quiet Asian market. Going forward I have made adjustments that I hope will reduce drawdown like this without penalizing profit taking during periods when prices are range bound during my trading hours.
