2 months back at trading (update) and some new questions

Hi all, I posted a thread back a few months ago when I started getting seriously back into trading after 20 years away. I thought I'd post an update with some notes on how I'm progressing. I like to type, so settle in. Maybe it'll help new traders who are exactly where I was 2 months ago, I dunno. Or maybe you'll wonder why you spent 3 minutes reading this. Risk/reward, yo.
I'm trading 5k on TastyWorks. I'm a newcomer to theta positive strategies and have done about two thirds of my overall trades in this style. However, most of my experience in trading in the past has been intraday timeframe oriented chart reading and momentum stuff. I learned almost everything "new" that I'm doing from TastyTrade, /options, /thetagang, and Option Alpha. I've enjoyed the material coming from esinvests YouTube channel quite a bit as well. The theta gang type strategies I've done have been almost entirely around binary event IV contraction (mostly earnings, but not always) and in most cases, capped to about $250 in risk per position.
The raw numbers:
Net PnL : +247
Commissions paid: -155
Fees: -42
Right away what jumps out is something that was indicated by realdeal43 and PapaCharlie9 in my previous thread. This is a tough, grindy way to trade a small account. It reminds me a little bit of when I was rising through the stakes in online poker, playing $2/4 limit holdem. Even if you're a profitable player in that game, beating the rake over the long term is very, very hard. Here, over 3 months of trading a conservative style with mostly defined risk strategies, my commissions are roughly equal to my net PnL. That is just insane, and I don't even think I've been overtrading.
55 trades total, win rate of 60%
22 neutral / other trades
Biggest wins:
Biggest losses:
This is pretty much where I expected to be while learning a bunch of new trading techniques. And no, this is not a large sample size so I have no idea whether or not I can be profitable trading this way (yet). I am heartened by the fact that I seem to be hitting my earnings trades and selling quick spikes in IV (like weed cures Corona day). I'm disheartened that I've went against my principles several times, holding trades for longer than I originally intended, or letting losses mount, believing that I could roll or manage my way out of trouble.
I still feel like I am going against my nature to some degree. My trading in years past was scalping oriented and simple. I was taught that a good trade was right almost immediately. If it went against me, I'd cut it immediately and look for a better entry. This is absolutely nothing like that. A good trade may take weeks to develop. It's been really hard for me to sit through the troughs and it's been even harder to watch an okay profit get taken out by a big swing in delta. Part of me wonders if I am cut out for this style at all and if I shouldn't just take my 5k and start trading micro futures. But that's a different post...
I'll share a couple of my meager learnings:


My new questions :

That's enough of this wall of text for now. If you made it this far, I salute you, because this shit was even longer than my last post.

Results of the Seventh Great FE:H Demographics and Opinions Survey!

Hi all,

It’s time for results! Thank you to everyone who participated – we had around 3,400 results this time! For future context, this survey was posted about a week after the Performing Arts banner.

If you responded to the survey or find these results valuable, upvotes to increase the visibility are much appreciated. There's a lot of Holy War threads to compete with right now, and I don’t want anyone who took the time to respond to miss seeing the results!

As always, neither myself nor this survey are associated with Intelligent Systems or Nintendo in any way. Please direct feedback about the game itself to the official channels.

Now without further ado, let’s get into the results! Album with all the graphs combined is linked in the closing remarks section, though I’d recommend reading the post itself as it contains more analysis and comparisons to previously-asked questions to show trends.

+3.8 is the average highest merge level achieved on any unit, and 2 is the median highest merge level. However, this question neglected to specify the rarity level. Since there’s a big commitment difference between 3* and 5* , these results should not be taken too seriously. [Graph].

74.85 is the average number of Sacred Coins, though this question was ill-timed as the Sacred Seal Forge came out right around the same time as this survey. As such, this result is highly unreliable.

46.4% find the 5* Hero Data collection and results to be valuable, while 41.2% answered “sort of” and 2.5% do not. [Graph].

88.1% do not find the 5* Hero Data survey difficult or stressful to fill out, while 9.3% answered “sort of” and 1.7% do. [Graph].

Thank you for your suggestions and replies to the 5* Hero Data survey – I will continue to tune and adjust it to be as valuable as possible.

Do not take this as incentive to spend more for higher return – remember that gachas are gambling, and can be addicting. Always have a plan of how much you’re willing to spend, and stay below an amount you can afford and feel comfortable with.

Extra Life 2017: Team Fire Emblem

Coming up on November 4th is the Extra Life livestream event to raise money for children’s hospitals. If you haven’t seen u/darkdogdemon ‘s post about it, check it out here. It’s a worthy cause, and just a little of your time or money can go a long way towards helping young Heroes defeat their Trials.

A source on the inside informs me that there’ll be some very special guests, exclusive prizes up for raffle, and not 1, not 2, but at least 10 different Fire Emblem games being played throughout the 24-hour period! If you haven’t played the games of some of your favorite characters in FE:H, this would be a great opportunity to see their origins!

Keep a lookout on this sub for more details coming soon!
 
Thanks again to everyone who participated! I hope you find the results interesting, and if there’s anything else you think can be discovered from the data, let me know and I’ll do my best to oblige!
 
P.S., to the person who always ends with #BuffFlorina: your message was the sweetest thing I’ve ever read, and people like you are why I keep doing these. Thank you.

Results of the Fifth Great FE:H Demographics and Opinions Survey!

Hi all,

It’s time for the results! Once again, a sincere thank you to all who participated in this survey. In total, there were just over 2,500 responses! If you responded to the survey or are interested in these results, feel free to share or otherwise increase the visibility. I don’t want anyone who took the time to respond to miss seeing the results!

Apologies for the slight dip in quality this time around – I ended up rushing to put this out before the 1.6 update / Hero Fest hits, and I made some mistakes. Notably, Clarisse, Tobin, and Berkut were benched missing from the drop-downs as I forgot to add new non-banner heroes. Also, a few other questions weren’t updated to account for new features/heroes. Rest assured the next one will meet the higher standard.

For context, this survey was posted on July 31st, just after the 6-month Anniversary livestream, but just before the Anniversary event itself.

As always, neither myself nor this survey are associated with Intelligent Systems or Nintendo in any way. Please direct feedback about the game itself to the official channels.

Now without further ado, let’s get into the results! Album with all the graphs combined is linked in the closing remarks section, though I’d recommend reading the post itself as it contains more analysis and comparisons to previously-asked questions to show trends.
 
Previous Survey Results: First_Survey | Second_Survey | Third_Survey | Fourth_Survey

~ Demographics ~

As expected, 98.9% reached this survey through Reddit, though a handful of others joined in through other forms of social media. If you shared the survey with someone, make sure to share this results post with them as well!

59.4% began playing FE:H on release day, with 17.7% more beginning within release week and another 7.3% within the month of February. 1.6 % of respondents joined in July. Full results here: [Graph].

Nearly a quarter (24.8%) of respondents have used over 90% of their naturally-refilling stamina since they began playing the game, and a cumulative 83.2% use 50% or higher. Full results here: [Graph].

45.6% report being F2P, a slight decrease compared to the previous survey (-1.6%). Also, 27.3% have spent between $1 - $100 and 2.8% have spent over $1000. Full results here: [Graph].

25.8% are 19-21 years old, with 20.4% in the range 16-18, 22.6% in the range 22-24, and 19.7% in the range 25-30. Only 3.7% are below 15, and 6.6% are above 30 (with 0.4% above 40). Remember that these results are influenced by the subreddit’s demographics, and are not representative of the larger player population. [Graph].

80.7% of respondents are male, 17.0% female, and 1.4% non-binary (36 respondents). Remember that these results are influenced by the subreddit’s demographics, and are not representative of the larger player population. [Graph].

70.7% live in North America, followed by 17.3% in Europe. 3.9% in Asia, 3.6% in South America, 3.3% in Oceania, 0.7% in Central America & the Caribbean, 0.2% in Africa, and 0.4% in the Middle East. Remember that these results are influenced by regional availability, and the popularity of Reddit - a predominantly English speaking website - in those regions as well. [Graph].

81.6% of respondents are in Arena tier 17 or above. 12.9% are tier 20. This is a significant shift to the higher tiers since last month’s survey, where 78.2% were tier 16 or above, and only 2.8% were in tier 20. The median tier is 18, and the average is 17.5 Full results here: [Graph].

~ Summoning ~

Ylissean Summer is the most summoned-from banner since the previous survey, with 77.5% of respondents reporting that they have summoned from it at least once. Nohrian Summer is close behind at 67.5%, followed by Alm’s Army at 55.9%. Full results here: [Graph].

Ylissean Summer is the most common orb-draining banner since the previous survey, with 40.9% of respondents reporting that they used the most orbs on it. Runner-up is Nohrian Summer at 14.8%, then Alm’s Army at 14.2%. Full results here: [Graph].

Nohrian Summer is the most common favorite banner since the previous survey, with 31.0% of respondents reporting it as their favorite. Runner-up is Ylissean Summer at 22.0%, then Alm’s Army at 13.5%. Full results here: [Graph].

Alm’s Army was chosen over Celica’s Army for most orbs used on it, with 42.4% using more on Alm’s while 24.6% used more on Celica’s. [Graph].

78.1% summoned from the Ylissean Summer banner at least once, and 68.3% summoned from the Nohrian Summer banner at least once. This makes Nohrian Summer the least-summoned from special banner, but the data is currently unreliable due to the upcoming Hero Fest and long end date for the banner. Ylissean Summer is less summoned from than Hero Fest (89.6%) and Spring Festival (81.7%), but not Bridal Blessings (76.8%). [YS Graph]. [NS Graph].

18.0% spent money specifically for the Ylissean Summer banner, and 16.3% spent specifically for the Nohrian Summer banner (though the same caveat as above applies here as well). This is less spending than the other special banners: 18.9% spent specifically for Bridal Blessings, 21.3% for Spring Festival, and 34.3% for Hero Fest. [YS Graph]. [NS Graph].

Robin was the most summoned for on the Ylissean Summer banner at 54.9% pulling for her. Tiki had 48.2%, Frederick had 22.6%, and Gaius had 19.3%. [Graph].

Corrin was the most summoned for on the Nohrian Summer banner at 57.6% pulling for her. Elise had 23.5%, Xander had 22.6%, and Leo had 15.6%. [Graph].

Since someone asked, the following table calculates which Summer characters were summoned for by Gender. [Table].

13.0% have summoned from one of last month’s banners specifically to obtain a newly-introduced skill onto an already-owned hero. [Graph].

The average difficulty rating for Clarisse Hard is 2.04, Alm & Celica Hard is 2.31, and Berkut Hard is 2.28.
The average difficulty rating for Clarisse Lunatic is 3.13, Alm & Celica Lunatic is 3.37, and Berkut Lunatic is 3.45.
The average difficulty rating for Clarisse Infernal is 4.01, Alm & Celica Infernal is 4.22, and Berkut Infernal is 4.29.
Legion Infernal remains king with the highest difficulty rating (4.77). Hope you’re all ready for the rematch!
[Clarisse Graph], [Alm & Celica Graph], [Berkut Graph].

Berkut has the highest proportion of respondents following a video or step-by-step images to complete, while Clarisse has the lowest. Similarly, Clarisse has the highest proportion of respondents using no help at all, while Berkut has the lowest. [Graph].
Cross-analysis reveals that only 29.3% of those who completed Berkut Infernal did so without any outside help. 48.5% for Alm & Celica Infernal, and 56.4% for Clarisse Infernal.

22.8% have not completed any Lunatic Level Chain Challenges, and only 12.5% have completed over 90% (4% have completed all). The median completion level is 30%. [Graph].

52.4% believe the Chain Challenge rewards match the effort required. 30.2% believe the rewards are not enough, while only 1.1% believe they are too generous. [Graph].

91.8% believe Intelligent Systems cares about its Free to Play userbase, the highest ever polled (previous high was 84.1% at the end of June). This is likely an effect of the 6-month Anniversary announcements. [Graph].

Do not take this as incentive to spend more for higher return – remember that gachas are gambling, and can be addicting. Always have a plan of how much you’re willing to spend, and stay below an amount you can afford and feel comfortable with.

~ Feedback ~

As always, I received lots of great feedback, both in your survey responses and in the thread itself. This survey was a bit different from the last one with some question types, and there were more mistakes/oversights than usual, but I appreciate all of the comments that help me fix and refine for the future. A heartfelt thank you to all participants for your encouragements and criticisms - these surveys wouldn’t be where they are without your feedback. But it’s not all serious: feedback messages also included:

  • Greetings from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Florida, France, Germany, Hungary, Indonesia, Spain, Mexico, Malaysia, Pennsylvania, and an Irishman in America. Hello!
  • Feh love and competition
  • “There have been more FE:H Demographics and Opinions Surveys than there are Sacred Stones characters in FE:H.”
  • Lots of dedication to their favorite characters, including one person patiently waiting for Beruka Emblem
  • RIP Askr Break Room and MKV
  • Too many lewd comments about Summer Xander
  • Renaisian Romeo and Juliet
  • #TeamRobin #TeamTiki #WhereIsKazeAndSeth2017 #TomatoPrince #BlameTakumi #BlameBruno #TeamL00t #BuffFlorina
Finally, I’ve made two comments below to organize conversation around two specific topics:
  1. If you want a direct response to a question you wrote in the feedback, respond to the “Questions” comment below
  2. High-effort FE:H song-parodies are honored with their own comment titled “Song Parodies” below.

~ Closing Remarks ~

[For all of the graphs in one album, click here].

Thanks again to everyone who participated! This survey was, admittedly, on the long side, so I’ll be paring it back down for next time. I hope you find the results interesting, and if there’s anything else you think can be discovered from the data, let me know and I’ll do my best to oblige!

Results of the Fourth Great FE:H Demographics and Opinions Survey!

Hi all,
The results are in! First of all, a sincere thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the survey. In total, there were just over 2,700 responses! If you responded to the survey or are interested in these results, feel free to share or otherwise increase the visibility. I don’t want anyone who took the time to respond to miss seeing the results!
For context, the survey was posted on June 26th, after the end of the first Tempest Trials and before the Ylissean Summer banner. FE:H was released nearly 150 days ago from the time of this posting.
As always, neither myself nor this survey are associated with Intelligent Systems or Nintendo in any way. Please direct feedback about the game itself to the official channels.
Now without further ado, let’s get into the results! Album with all the graphs combined is linked in the closing remarks section, though I’d recommend reading the post itself as it contains more analysis and comparisons to previously-asked questions to show trends.
 
Previous Survey Results: First_Survey | Second_Survey | Third_Survey

~ Demographics ~

As expected, 98.8% reached this survey through Reddit, though a handful of others joined in through shared links on Line, TV Tropes, and other mediums. If you shared the survey, make sure to share this results post with them as well!

60.1% began playing FE:H on release day, with 18.1% more beginning within release week. A further 8.5% began in February, 6.9% in March, 3.1% in April, 2.1% in May, and 1.1% in June. [Graph].

47.2% report being F2P, which is actually a slight increase compared to the previous survey, meaning this survey must have had comparatively more F2P respondents. Anyways, 27.7% of players have spent between $1 and $100, and 2.7% have spent over $1000. Full results here: [Graph].

24.9% are 19-21 years old, with 19.9% in the range 16-18, 21.6% in the range 22-24, and 21.3% in the range 25-30. Only 3.7% are below 15, and 7.5% are above 30 (with 0.1% above 40). Remember that these results are influenced by the subreddit’s demographics, and are not representative of the larger player population. [Graph].

82.3% of respondents are male, 15.1% female, and 1.4% non-binary (39 respondents). Remember that these results are influenced by the subreddit’s demographics, and are not representative of the larger player population. [Graph].

Remember that these results are influenced by regional availability, and the popularity of Reddit - a predominantly English speaking website - in those regions as well. [Graph].

78.2% of respondents are in Arena tier 16 or above. 43.5% are tier 18 or above, and 2.8% are tier 20. The median tier is 17, and the mode is 18. Full results here: [Graph].

Bridal Blessings is the most summoned-from banner since the previous survey, with 75.8% of respondents reporting that they have summoned from it at least once. Runner-up is Rite of Shadows at 60.0%, then Echoes of Mystery at 50.7%. Full results here: [Graph].

Bridal Blessings is the most common orb-draining banner since the previous survey, with 41.1% of respondents reporting that they used the most orbs on it. Runner-up is Rite of Shadows at 13.8%, then Tempest Trials at 11.6%. Full results here: [Graph].

Bridal Blessings is the most common favorite banner since the previous survey, with 35.2% of respondents reporting it as their favorite. Runner-up is Rite of Shadows at 13.5%, then Tempest Trials at 13.3%. Full results here: [Graph].

76.8% summoned from the Bridal Blessings banner at least once (though the question above had this figure at 75.8%, so there’s some respondent error to account for). This is less than the Hero Fest (89.6%) and Spring Festival (81.7%) banners. [Graph].

18.9% spent money on orbs specifically for the Bridal Blessings banner, which is lower than the Hero Fest (34.3%) and Spring Festival (21.3%) banners. [Graph].

84.5% completed GHB Lloyd on Hard, and 79.0% on Lunatic. [Graph].

85.2% completed GHB Camus on Hard, and 79.3% on Lunatic. [Graph].

86.2% completed GHB Legion on Hard, and 62.3% on Lunatic. Only 37.3% completed Infernal. [Graph]. However, cross-analysis reveals that only 48.6% who completed Legion Infernal did so without any outside help.

The average difficulty rating for Lloyd Hard is 1.93, Camus Hard is 2.08, and Legion Hard is 2.50.
The average difficulty rating for Lloyd Lunatic is 3.03, Camus Lunatic is 3.29, and Legion Lunatic is 3.97.

The average rating was 3.31. [Graph]. This is a decline from the previous survey, where 65.0% thought the new rule was good for the gauntlets and only 6.6% thought it was bad.

Support for the new Arena scoring algorithm (taking merging and skills into account instead of only BST) is overwhelmingly positive, with 70.2% rating it a 4/5 or above, and only 5.5% rating it 2/5 or below. 24.4% are neutral.

~ 5* Hero Data ~

Note: This recurring section is used to gather data and plot the average number of 5* Heroes among the playerbase as the game progresses. Here, there’s a distinction between the AVAILABLE number of 5s, and the TOTAL number of 5s.

AVAILABLE number of 5*s refers to the number of heroes in your barracks with a gold border, regardless of whether they were summoned or upgraded with feathers. Do NOT include merges (eg. Hector Lv.40+4 counts as one unit, not five).

TOTAL number of 5s refers to the sum of all the 5 heroes you’ve ever had. This is the number of heroes in your barracks PLUS merges, and 5*s used for inheritance (eg. Hector Lv.40+4 counts as five, and a Hector sent home to give another unit Distant Counter counts as another one).

For the current AVAILABLE number of 5* Heroes:
  • 20.93 is the average number of 5* heroes available in barracks among all players.
  • 14 is the cutoff for the 25th percentile
  • 18 for the 50th percentile
  • 23 for the 75th percentile
  • 32 for the 90th percentile
  • 42 for the 95th percentile
  • 77 for the 99th percentile

For the TOTAL number of 5* Heroes:
  • 23.94 is the average number of 5* heroes obtained for all players.
  • 15 is the cutoff for the 25th percentile
  • 20 for the 50th percentile
  • 26 for the 75th percentile
  • 36 for the 90th percentile
  • 49 for the 95th percentile
  • 104 for the 99th percentile

Following feedback, I also included a ranged variant for these questions. The results of the range-based restatements is below:

For the AVAILABLE number of 5* Heroes:

16-20 is the most common range at 28.1%. The next two largest are on either side: 11-15 at 22.6% and 21-25 at 18.8%. The median range is 16-20 (Median error fixed thanks to u/QRioss 's sharp eyes!). Full results here: [Graph].

For the TOTAL number of 5* Heroes:

16-20 is again the most common range at 23.9%, with 11-15 at 16.9% and 21-25 at 22.0%. The median range is 16-20 (Median error fixed thanks to u/QRioss 's sharp eyes!). Full results here: [Graph].

Let me know whether you like the range-based form better or worse than the regular.

Finally, the number of 5* units sacrificed for Skill Inheritance is overwhelmingly in the 0-5 range (91.2%), but the question was flawed. As a commenter pointed out, the 0-5 option should have been separated to 0 and 1-5 to differentiate between those who would sacrifice a 5* for SI and those who would not. As such, the results for this question should be taken with a grain of salt. Full results here: [Graph].

~ Special Results: Number of 5* Heroes by Join Time ~

The following is a graph plotting the Number of 5* Heroes by Join Time: [Graph].

~ Special Results: # of 5* Heroes vs. Money Spent ~

The following graph plots the average number of 5* heroes for each spending bracket: [Graph].

Do not take this as incentive to spend more for higher return – remember that gachas are gambling, and can be addicting. Always have a plan of how much you’re willing to spend, and stay below an amount you can afford and feel comfortable with.

~ Special Results: 5* Hero Data for F2Ps joining during Release Week Only ~

For the current AVAILABLE number of 5* Heroes:
  • 16.64 is the average number of 5* heroes available in barracks among Release Week F2Ps.
  • 13 is the cutoff for the 25th percentile
  • 17 is the cutoff for the 50th percentile
  • 20 for the 75th percentile
  • 23 for the 90th percentile
  • 24 for the 95th percentile
  • 29 for the 99th percentile

For the TOTAL number of 5* Heroes:
  • 18.38 is the average number of 5* heroes obtained for Release Week F2Ps.
  • 14 is the cutoff for the 25th percentile
  • 19 is the cutoff for the 50th percentile
  • 22 for the 75th percentile
  • 25 for the 90th percentile
  • 27 for the 95th percentile
  • 34 for the 99th percentile

~ Feedback ~

As always, I received lots of great feedback, both in your survey responses and in the thread itself. My goal is to make each survey even more refined than the last, and I think it’s come a long way since the first one. A heartfelt thank you to all participants for your encouragements and criticisms - these surveys wouldn’t be where they are without your feedback. But it’s not all serious: feedback messages also included:

  • Greetings from Finland, Hong Kong, Canada, Russia, Indonesia, and the Caribbean. Hello!
  • Equal amounts of praise and criticism for the joke questions at the end
  • 3 people think I’m secretly a Nintendo/IS employee – I wish!
  • Inquiries about Shadows of Valentia: I’m playing it right now, near the beginning of Act 4. It’s pretty good, but still has its share of flaws. Alm > Celica, fight me
  • A detailed description of why Setsuna should wield the Fujin Yumi instead of Takumi
  • 10 messages of Veronica love, 19 messages of Veronica hate
  • Multiple people responding during work
  • 15 Anti-Takumi messages
  • 1 Offer for a candlelit dinner
  • The usual F2P BTW, Disgusting, Skilled Roy, Do your Best, Jojo memes, and too many other memes to possibly mention!
I do read all of the feedback – if you want a direct response to something you wrote, comment below or PM
