As I've mentioned in my other weekly summary posts, my core BWB has historically had a 75% win rate and I felt I was long overdue for some losers.  These few losers were expected.  I currently have 8 open trades, with expirations in March (1), April (3), and May (4):

Total defined risk for these trades has decreased with the trades closed last week and is currently at 50.1% of the account net liquidation value. This risk is broken down into the following groups:
  • 12.6% of net liq - DOTM BWB
  • 37.5% of net liq - core BWB (at 75% of target size, but increasing with new trades)
14 trades have been closed this year...9 wins and 5 losses. Return on the account for the year is at 1.7%.  Total win rate is at 64%.  Win rate on core trades is at 69% and within the expected range.
