The project has just started. Until December we will look for the best contract optimizations, then we will have to choose the best performing markets, then evaluate the portfolio together and establish risk management rules. There is still a long way to go. If there are other markets that I can optimize in addition to the MIB, I’m ready.04/21/2017 at 12:55 AM #3282204/21/2017 at 7:48 AM #3283304/22/2017 at 8:03 PM #32981
I had some time and created algos for all the upcoming instruments. Not so happy with the result, but Rainers Roadmap (attachment on the first page) already predicts a period with low gains.
Please have a look in the dropbox .. maybe you can find some better numbers and improve them! 🙂04/24/2017 at 8:10 AM #33119

@Patrick: Cudos for staying in the market last week and not get cold feet like I did. You earn every cent by sticking with your algos .. must be a small fortune (4k+?)
Please remind me of this post, next time when I think I can do better than our forged algos and their reliable statistics.04/24/2017 at 10:19 AM #33151
I’ve closed a couple of positions last week. The CAC when the result was more or less zero and i had manual one position Nikkei (not your three). I also closed that last week with a small
positive result. This night i closed manual the OMX (+ € 1.733,56). The FTSE closed automaticly this night at 01.00 o’clock (loss € 690,80). I have still have the DOW. These are still open
and came from a potential loss of € 1.475,10 to a potential profit at this moment of € 780,00. But i also have the future may wheat (loss € 285,00), cacao (loss € 310).
So, i’m happy with the results right now but i could not ride it all out. I also found the risks too high. Without Macron winning in France we could have been in a very different situation.
The +4K is not there yet, but could possibly be. The beginning of april started also good.
It is difficult to stay stable and keep quiet when losses piling up. Unfortunately i have seen it too many times last years. Maybe i’m more used to it. Everybody situation is different and everybody
should make choices what feels right with his situation. I’m affraid it will never be easy.
I’ve also thought about your positions last night. I know you should not look back but the mind does unfortunately. It is inevitable.
But i think David has done a much better job. He runs everything and waits until everything closes.
Take it away David:-)

@Pfeiler, thanks again for your effort and the new algos in the dropbox.
I tried some as well and here are my results.
For Sugar your Algo shows almost similar results.
Nifty, I am always alert if we have just a limited amount of data available because the sample is not very reliable.
That is the fact for Coffee arabica as well, as you have only 11 trades, so i would prefer my algo with more trades.
I tried Cacoa as well but your algo is definately better.
Best regards04/24/2017 at 11:38 AM #33167
Yes, I didn’t close anything manually, but I was very tempted! I have never been down that much until now, but this week it seems to be time for payback.
I have only had time to try out Cacao, but couldn’t improve it.

Platin opened a position:
A2 25.04.2017D1auto Platin ($10 Mini) 1 966,10
And MIB and SMI closed with an awesome profit (+1842€):

First MIB position was in the market for 19! days, but the results show, it is worth waiting.
But this cost me a lot of nerves. (<- pretty sure you can’t say that in english, german guys know what I mean 🙂 )04/25/2017 at 8:06 AM #3328004/25/2017 at 8:18 PM #33397
