How can have 1.5 trades per week: if you are trading everyday between the closing and the opening, for a week of 5 days, that’s 10 executions, or 5 trades.
I suppose you are not trading everyday.
How do you choose not to open an overnight position then?
well, I don’t trade everyday. Only when many patterns are triggering. Some weeks we have 2 or 3 trades some weeks none. On average, it’s 1,5 trades per week. You can see all my past trades on the published track record in the “trading results” page.
