2015 Year End Numbers and Reflections

So how terrible was the performance this year?


Most if not all traders lie about their true performance,I will be as honest as I can and the result is terrible and pretty red to say the least.

That being said, I didn't even trade options before, and almost all my trades prior were quickly researched and executed without proper exit strategies. Heck I never even traded 1 stop loss order.


In the year 2015 I deposited a total of 42100$ into the account.




Net purchases - Net sales =($46,605)

This what I'm down by.

Of this $25,005.79 is Realized and $23,466.40 is Unrealized. I still have hope for the latter amount.

Included in this I paid a whopping 1,754.75$ in commissions!


Nothing to write home about really, only to say I will try better next year with ZERO inflow. I want the account to grow organically.


Let us see how this next year pans out.

I am reminded of a stanza from the glorious poem 'The Charge of the Light Brigade' by Lord Tennyson.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
   Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of hell
   Rode the six hundred.

Happy New Year and Merry Christmas.
