I'll post my graphical update at regular intervals so long as rmt continues to post his xls.
My reasons for monitoring these trades is that I'm starting to swing trades US stocks myself. My past attempts have not been the success I'd like, so I'm gaining experience in seeing how they move. I'm paper trading another 30 trades consecutively to learn how to best manage the trades myself. US stocks get pretty volatile during periods of uncertainty and now earnings season. Opening gaps are quite common and have to be managed. Even though the VIX is low, using tight trailing stops looks unhelpful.

I will keep up my posting. Many will say oh he is not making any gains in the moment. How can he trade for a living.
If this is how you make your 'living' how do you cope with taking money out of your account to pay for rent, bills, spending etc? You are flat on p&l after a month, so surely your living costs have decreased your capital base this last month?
Has rmt stated that he is using a 1.5M account? I haven't read the whole thread.
I will add a tab with a model Portfolio in my excel file. In real I trade a 1.5 Million USD Portfolio therefore even small gains are quiet big. I wouldnt reccommend to trade for a living under 1 Mio USD. I think the good thing about me trading is the fact that you can do it as part time trading as well because you do not have to watch the market all the time
