Week of 2013 OC 11

IWM rose by 0.8% this week; my account rose 0.3%.  The loss-floor has risen to -4.1%.

I did not feel like doing daily updates this week, so the following “% gain” table is fragmentary.

For the last six weeks, the robot has been doing reasonably well on its broad-market IWM-derivative trades:

As is the usual case for these things, there were three small gains and three small losses, which sum up to exactly zero, plus one big gain of +1.7% which is my net profit.  Of course, it would be better if the chaff trades could have been skipped — but there is no way to know when placing the trades which one is going to be the winner.  The trade currently in progress (named URTY ² in the table above) is not shown here, but it was purchased just after the gap-up on OC 10 so things are looking good so far.
