Since February 1 when I started sizing up a bit more after small and paper trading for 4 months...
Short Trades: 92% winning, 5.06% per win, 1.8% per loss, +$52,000
Long Trades: 55% winning, 4.8% gain per win, 3.62% per loss, +$179
Yet... I continue to follow long alerts in chat room, follow the top traders on their plays long - this past Friday I was up $600 on the day which was a slow day for me and I wiped it all out with one failed long breakout that was notified on STT.
My goal this week - stick to what is working - no long trades, no following the top guys on their trades. Just stick to my strategies and remained disciplined.
