Total defined risk for these trades 68.5% of the account net liquidation value.

33 trades have been closed this year...17 wins and 16 losses. Return on the account for the year is at 2.8%.  Total win rate is at 52%. The win rate on the core trades is at 59%. Not happy with the win rates, but at least the losses have been small. Of the 10 open trades, 8 currently have a positive P&L. The 2 trades that have a negative P&L were entered this week (1 trade on 15-Sep) and last week (1 trade on Sep-8). This week's trade is down -0.15% on margin, and last week's trade is down 0.46% on margin...these numbers are typical in the first week or so of the trade.

Next week I will close trades #34 and #35 as they have little profit remaining and closing them will free up some margin. Besides entering one new trade next week, I will make adjustments as follows:
  • Highly likely: #36, #37
  • Likely: #40
  • Possible: #39, #41, #42
  • Unlikely: #38, #43
