It’s taken me 5 months to develop a trading strategy with a $2k capital base that suits my daily scalping trending style using Ichimoku on the daily chart as the KEY ingredient, which MUST be correlated by the 1Hr chart from which I trade. That doesn’t change, neither does MACD and ATR, or EMA 75, even though I am open to experiment with other signals on a separate demo account. The learning (my strategy) costs were $200 over the first 15 weeks of trading.
Currently, I’m slowly easing my way back to becoming at least a break-even trader; the last 8 weeks I’ve made $127 profit (6.35%) which - if maintained - is an annual rate of 41.275%.
I could divulge my strategy in full and all my strict rules on every trading aspect, but it is unlikely that no-one could maintain the same patience and discipline to make it work. Mainly because not every day are trades made, the current maximum is 4 per day and last week I suffered three non-trading days Wed-Friday…
…which gave me plenty of time to test the Parrando Paradox.
