"Oct 25th" would not be used as......2.5% rule failed...

If it had not failed(for trade) that would account for a 23 cent loss and a reason for some of the difference between our numbers. Oct 25th figured to a 2.2% value, not exceeding the 2.5% rule for entry.

• Hey Jess,

Thank you for hanging in there with me. I'm having fun...;-) Thank you also for working with me on the selected timeline. I have a few comments and I have added a couple of your dates I over looked and two corrections to your dates. I come up with a much greater gain than you, so here are my calculations for these dates we've used:

My corrected dates(I use the date of entry):

Oct, 1, 3, 4, 5....(10 cents each for .40 gain) (24th would not be used as the 20% rule failed)
Nov 1, 26, 27, 28, 30...( -.23 loss on the 1st, with all others @ 10 cent profit for .17 gain)
Dec 10, 18...(17 cents on the 10th profit and 10 cents on the 18th for .27 profit) (24th would not be used as you would exit on the 26th which is DBEX)
Jan 3, 7, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 22, 29 ...( all produced profit of 10 cents except 17th @ BE, 22nd @ - .11 and 29th @ +.03 for total profit for Jan @ .72)

Total profit = .40 + .17 + .27 + .72 = 1.56

This was holding for 10 cents on each turn. How did you get 1.08??

Best,

DocReits
