After a good 2019 learning about how to trade, this 2020 was fine in so many ways, that I would like to review.
The math result? I did a 36%,
2020 started with $1.420,94
and ended with $1.934,41
so the P&L was $513,47 or a 36,1%
Total moves 188
wins 157 84%
loses 31 16%

The number of moves by month were:

Some lessons from data:
- I have to stop loss better than I did, this happened to me in 2019 too.
- Portfolio management was better done in second half of the year and it gave me more consistent small wins.
- To pay attention to ex-date gave me a nice 47$ of dividends.
- The average of earnings have been 1,99$ in comparison with 2019 is worst (2,32%).
- 10% of the worst moves made me lose 705$ which is a lot.
- I have to improve on the way I’m trading, I still have some negative skew.
- The rally I did during the last 3 months enabled me to recuperate of a disaster. I have to focus myself on what I did well during Q4 because it worked.
- I have learned to read better the market timing indicators and this valuation has enabled me to exit and enter in values with better results.
- My 2019 trades were quite better than 2020 in so many ways: benefit, number of errors and bias.
- I have to concentrate more on the process and avoid the noise.
What to expect for 2021?
- I have increase the funds with 2000$, so we will start the year with 3934$.
- I will use the same percentage when opening positions: 1%, 2%, 3%.
