Time in trade with FT
« on: November 02, 2009, 07:26:19 PM »
During an analysis of FT with EURCHF I noticed that my three losses were in trade over 10 hours. I had the history on an Excel chart. I then removed all, including profits, of the trades over 10 hours and the results were as follows:
Before removal ............ 87 pip profit
After removal.................136 pip profit
This is a substantial gain. This trading period was a demo account that lasted 30 days with Jade as the broker.
Is there any way to take advantage of this phenomena?
I am thinking that an option to limit the time in a trade. Or limit the time if the grade has gone south a certain amount in a certain time, both parameters adjustable.

Did you just 'remove' the trades as if they had never been, or did you work out what loss you would have sustained if you cut the trades short say at the end of the Asian session?

The improvement in pips is only realistic if you have adjusted for losses ... it is impossible to know before a trade is taken whether or not it will last over 10 hours (though it would be nice!  ;D)
