Looking at my trading performance I made a return of 50% from the period of June to December, risking 1% a trade.
Based on my returns above, I faced a period of small wins and losses before a big trend hits the market. No surprise for a trend follower.
My biggest win came from Usdjpy when BOJ did a surprise intervention and I scaled in my trade progressively.
My biggest missed trades for the year would be failing to short Wheat and Eurusd.
Short: Crude Oil, Eurusd, Gbpusd, Eurjpy
Long: Bund, Usdmxn, Usdhuf, Usdcad
Going forward I will be trading off the 1 & 4 hour timeframes. Why?
Because it has higher frequency of trades and allow tighter stops, which will result in capturing a bigger R multiple.
Risk management wise I will still be risking 1% a trade, but due to increase in equity the nominal value per trade will be increased.
Finally, I can’t predict which will be the best trending markets in 2015. All I can do is participate in the markets and manage my risk accordingly.
So, how was trading for you in 2014?
