Happy New Year to all readers!

I’ve decided to have a bit of change in this account this year. I’ve pushed the capital to $20K and we’ll set a specific goal, to double it by New Year’s Eve on 2013. If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you’ll know that it’s possible, but tough!  The first trading day will be tomorrow 2nd Jan, so fingers crossed for a good start!

Beans: No Trade   The first SPI trade day will be the 14th Dec.

(Murphy’s law is alive and well. There was a good win on the S&P today! )

Trades for both contracts (beans and the SPI) will be infrequent. In the past, the trade rate for this beans strategy has been about 22% and for the SPI strategy 31%. So we can expect frequent “no trade” days, even trading 2 contracts.

Lost connection, so no trade (missing a small win).

My return for Nov was 0.03%. Hardly stunning, but better than a loss!
