Weekly Trading System

Weekly Trading System

The second system that is not posted daily is my weekly system which is longer term and holds trades typically 2 to 4 weeks.  This system takes much fewer trades.  One reason I like it is that it lends itself well to running in full automation with TradeStation 9.1.

 I traded this system with real money for about 7 months in intraday-4 Weekly Trading System2012 and liked it.  It is not really a new system at all.   It is actually my oldest system which has been adapted to work with weekly bar charts.  It uses a 75 % retracement  stop that I discuss in my manuals.

If anybody wishes to attempt to replicate these results you should understand that I ran the tests on Christmas day 2012 and went back a little over 13 months.  I did not cherry pick these markets.  These markets were selected BEFORE I started trading in real time and were based on positive performance prior to 2012.


WEEKLY SYSTEM  November 2011 to 12/24/12 and tested on TradeStation 9.1  These results show net profit (loss) and number of trades during the 13 month period.

 Final Totals for WEEKLY SYSTEM

 Profits before slippage and commissions = $427, 395

Total number of trades = 697

Estimated slippage and commissions = $69,700

Profits after slippage and commissions = $357,695

Annual % return on one million dollars = 36%

I was nevertheless gratified to see the good performance with the weekly system.  Obviously this algorithm performs better in the low volatility environment by taking fewer trades and holding them longer.

As mentioned previously The Weekly System also lends itself well to fully automated trading using TradeStation 9.5 or Multi Charts.
