Trade Review - January 2019

I’ve learned quite a bit from letting my algo trade during January. It started off pretty good with a couple of small winners which is exactly what I wanted. I then had a few losses that spiraled out of control and forced me to size down after I started to sabotage myself.

After a string of bad trades I went back to paper trading and had some gains which is super annoying. The week after that I got sick and had to take two weeks off in order to fully recovery. During that time I was paper trading still and some worked out.

It was a pretty rocky month with only 2 full weeks of trades at the beginning. I’m ending it down about -$25 which is unfortunate but I should be able to make that up eventually.

Here’s to February being much better!
