Discussion of results:
Trading has been good and hot in the TTTHedge.com room. We have high expectations and in the fast trade accounts (mini and traders) we would like to get 100% return per quarter and that was achieved in the Mini account. The Traders account came in with a solid 60% gain and the real goal, that is the goal of growing the IRA 100% per year is well in hand.
For those that can not actively trade Tom has a Nooners service that sends out one trade per day as a swing trade, usually one to two days. The tracked results of that trade was 21% for the quarter. Easy Trading.

The Four Model Portfolios Explained:
TTTHedge.com trades four model portfolios for our members to pick and choose trades from.
MINI - The Mini portfolio is a day-trade only account and primarily trades the Russell 2000 TF e-mini. This account is 100% in cash each day before the market closes. Under the leadership of Cathy Cullen, the portfolio is traded technically with a combination of momentum and price movement. The recommended minimum account size for trading the Mini account is about $25,000. Trades in this account can trade up to three TF e-mini contracts per trade.
Traders – Our Traders portfolio trades mostly the ES SP500 e-mini futures contract. This account holds contracts and positions overnight, therefore, sufficient capital to hold and drawdown on up to 4 contracts is necessary. This portfolio can hold from 1 to 5 days with most trades lasting less than one hour. Tom Malone, CEO and founder of TTTHedge.com, leads the Traders account. The recommended account size for trading the Traders account is $60,000.
Main – Our Main portfolio is a swing trade portfolio using mostly stocks and ETFs to seek above market returns. This portfolio in general has a hold time between 1 and 30 days and is less actively traded than the Mini or Traders account. Tom Malone, CEO and founder of TTTHedge.com, trades the Main portfolio, adding and subtracting positions as the markets and performance dictate. There is no recommended account size for the Main portfolio since it is less leveraged than the Mini and Traders.
IRA – The IRA seeks to model a longer-term holding IRA portfolio. It has the same parameters as the Main portfolio with the exception of extended holding periods longer than 30 days.
How we calculate our returns:
Each day in our live trading room, our traders post their trades in an official trade area in the room. A transcript of these trades is available for perusal at http://ttthedge.com/category/transcript/. Our 3rd party tracker then meticulously enters each call, both entry and exit (after making sure they are achievable), into our tracking database. Gains & losses on futures are calculated against the overnight margin rates and weighted for the amount of the portfolio that the trader has committed to the trade. Gains & losses on stocks and ETFs are calculated as the price difference between the entry and exit weighted against the amount of the portfolio committed to the trade. We do not account for commissions, dividends or compounding of returns, which would significantly improve our published results. Since each trader’s environment is unique with different account sizes, brokers, and cash flow requirements, the data we provide is sufficient to model your own hypothetical returns.
