Trading statistics and analysis are an important overview of a trading program or system's performance. Statistics also give a daytrader an early warning indication regarding how the trading program is interacting with the market action.

If the program isnít functioning within historical tolerances, then reevaluation, testing and implementation of new program or parameter sets is necessary.

Following is an example of the statistics found in every Overnight Update showing how our trading program functioned in the S&P500 that day, that month, and year-to-date. See Interpreting the Trading Statistics which explains precisely what each statistic measures.

Also review The Guide for a complete study of the Daytrader's Bulletin methodology.
