On Tuesday my performance was higher +.9 in Risk-Off mode (shown above). Risk-Off mode is where trades are not extended and exits are bounded by predetermined time in trade limits absent other reasons to exit (e.g., price target or stop loss reached, etc.) On Tuesday, the SPY was up +1.0. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +1.1 points.
