Monthly and YTD Performance: August 2021, +8.9%

The month got off to a slow start and was showing a loss until the 20th. Two good trades saved the day. AUDUSD short, trading haven-flow, gave +4.24% and WTI long, a reversal, gave 5.27%.

I placed 5 trades in the month, 3 of which were winners, 1 losers and 1 breakeven. The month closed with a gain of +8.9%.

Year-to-date (YTD) shows a gain of 132.5%.

I have two key metrics. Firstly, I want to see a win ratio of at least 60 percent. YTD at the end of August shows a win ratio of 80 percent. Secondly, in the winning trades, I want to see a reward/risk ratio of at least 2.0. That’s a gain of £2 for every £1 risked. Currently, that ratio stands at 2.7. So far so good.
