Apologies, brain failure as my spread is 2 pips. Thanks Gino for brining this to attention.

Day 9 – 24 January

I was able to capture some signals today, so here is my experience.

Raw Data:

Time TEC Signal Scalp 10 Scalp 15 Sig2Sig
10:00 Sell 1.59560 10.00 15.00 9.20
13:40 Sell 1.59460 2.20 2.20 2.20
14:15 Buy 1.59400 10.00 15.00 23.80
14:45 Sell 1.59650 -15.00 -20.00 -40.00

.

Paul’s data for today suggests I missed signals for -26, +15, +6 and +6. My results seldom match Paul’s directly as I get different prices and Paul records his data before spread whilst I include spread. Where I did record results, Paul’s data broadly matches my own.

Now Paul has published his data for January, I can see that the average variance between his results and mine is 2.39 pips. As stated above, Paul does not record spread and I do, which is 2 pips. The remaining 0.39 is the difference between Paul’s prices and mine.

On Monday 10th Jan I missed some signals. Using Paul’s data these were -17, +34, -4, +40 and +25. On Friday 21 Jan I missed -40. Today I missed -26, +15, +6 and +6, as stated above. Bar Friday, which was a full loss, I am deducting 2.39 pips per trade as this is the average variance in pips. This means I have missed +66.05 pips on the 10th and -8.56 pips today. Adding these 17.49 pips to the signal-to-signal total means the adjusted loss for this aspect of the service so far is -49.21 pips.
