My strategy managed to overcome a rocky start to finish the month with a near breakeven result. QB Pro’s total return for December was a loss of 1.56%. That would have been a positive number had I not switched servers at an inopportune time. The system had its best day when I switched and, of course, I forgot to flip the “on” switch overnight. I missed the most profitable day of the month.
The portfolio on December 1 included a mix of both CAD and CHF. As you can see, the month started close to something of a nose dive. Everything through Dec. 9 was harrowing. Not coincidentally, that was also the day that I removed CHF from the portfolio.
Ever since Dec 10, you can see that the equity curve has more or less marched straight upward. I’m only trading CAD crosses at the moment and intend to keep it that way. While I’m tempted to up the leverage, I plan to wait for at least a week. The first few trading days of the month always seem to be the most volatile, which is rarely a good thing for me.
There’s not much else to write about. I feel like I’m dialed in right now. The only thing to do now is sit back and wait.
