Trade History

Performance for this month seems to have reached peak. Upshot is consistency.


Overall Performance in January:

  • January is a challenging month with a generally lower success rate and average return compared to the overall monthly averages across all months.
  • Trades targeting a 30%-50% return range have a reduced success rate in January compared to the overall average, suggesting higher risk during this month.

Stock Selection:

  • WYNN and GOOG stand out as top performers in January, both in terms of winning history and average return. WYNN shows a 100% winning history with an average return of 125%, and GOOG has an 86% winning history with a 143% average return.
  • AAPL and BIDU also demonstrate strong performances with high success rates and solid average returns.

Target Return Range:

  • Although the overall success rate decreases as the sought return increases, focusing on the 30%-50% range is still viable, especially with specific stocks.
  • Given the data, aiming for the lower end of this range (around 30%) might be more prudent to balance the risk and potential for success.

Risk Management:

  • Due to the variability and generally lower success rates in January, it’s crucial to adopt stringent risk management strategies.
  • Consider reducing position sizes or employing protective measures like stop-loss orders to manage potential downside.


  • Diversifying across several of the better-performing stocks (like WYNN, GOOG, AAPL, BIDU) could help mitigate risks associated with individual stock performance.

Recommendations for Trading in January:

  • Focus on High-Performing Stocks: Prioritize trades in WYNN, GOOG, AAPL, and BIDU, as they have shown relatively higher success rates and returns in January.
  • Target Lower Range for Returns: Aim for the lower end of the 30%-50% return range to balance the increased risk seen in January.
  • Apply Cautious Position Sizing: Given the overall lower success rates in January, consider reducing the size of trades to manage risk exposure.
  • Implement Protective Measures: Utilize stop-loss orders or other risk management tools to safeguard against significant losses.
  • Diversify Trades: Spread your trades across several of the better-performing stocks to reduce the risk associated with reliance on a single stock.

By following these recommendations, traders can better navigate the challenging market conditions typically seen in January while still aiming for profitable opportunities within the 30%-50% return range.
