P&L Results

Recommended Posts

Hi there

New to trading and would like some clarity as to why the P&L results are approximately magnified by 3.55x the actual price movement. File is attached for clarity.

Hey - if we take the first line...

28667.5 to 28845 is 177.5 points 

177.5 * 2.5 (contract value) = 443.75 USD 

443.75 USD in AUD would have been 627.19 at that exchange rate on the point of realized profit.  

hope this clarifies

    • I think that was in reference to the different strategies as in a mean reversion system with smaller targets needs more trades than a trend following system that is longer term.
    • 'Trading only 50 times a year limits your P&L' 'Trading 500 times a year lets you exploit your edge' Pretty much goes against all professional wisdom on the subject of trading.  'The more you trade, the more you lose.'
    • Just listened to the Jack Schwagger podcast.  Typical BS: Stick to the rules and be disciplined! Except when it stops working - then change the rules! Know the market!  Limit your losses!  Analyse every trade - that will help prevent you losing!  But everyone loses throughout their career!  It's all about losing less frequently!  Blah blah blah ... In other words, 'To hell with this ... I'm going to get rich by writing a book instead'
