Continuing to trade live in sim this week for practice sake. Even through the un-ideal low volume conditions both methods are making consistent profits as they should. I've placed a large emphasis on making sure what works today, worked 10 years ago, worked in the volatility post 9/11, the low volatility lull from 04-06, and through the high volatility we've seen in the past two years. As far as i'm concerned, its as important to know your method works now, as it is to know it worked in a completely different market 2 years ago, 5 years ago, 20 years ago. Markets change, a robust method should continue to function through them all and both methods have proven to do just that.

As far as trading goes. Rather than the January 2nd start date previously discussed (this Friday) i've decided to hold off until Monday. Friday will most likely be low volume as many traders will be taking the day off through the weekend. Thus, i'll start up fresh on Monday and let the chips fall where they may. Also, i'll keep a Excel spreadsheet that i'll post screenshots of daily. I'll post a Broker confirmed blotter of all trades at the end of the month to confirm the validity of my daily activities. However, its a much larger process to blur and crop out account numbers every day than it is to just post a record of trades taken from a worksheet.

Enjoy New Years and we'll see you all back here at 2:45PM on the 5th!
