Focus on Tech

“Primary trading paradox: In what way does a trader have to learn how to be rigid and flexible at the same time? The answer is: We have to be rigid in our rules and flexible in our expectations. In this way we gain a sense of self-trust that can, and will always, protect us in an environment that has few , if any, boundaries.” – Mark Douglas

In today’s session we are going to focus on the importance of Tech and where we stand both in the short and longer term.

Chart of the Day

“Beware those who seek constant crowds for they are nothing alone.” – Charles Bukowski

No change in outlook as we move into the end of the month/quarter.

Chart of the Day

“The key is consistency and discipline. Almost anybody can make up a list of rules that are 80% as good as what we taught. What they can’t do is give (people) the confidence to stick to those rules even when things are going bad.” – Richard Dennis, on Turtle Trading

Today we will be discussing where we stand vs seasonals and the classic presidential cycle as we move into month-quarter end. As we have been discussing, the ‘easy’ double-digit short and long moves are done. now it gets very tactical and tricky…

Darwin YTD Performance

I often get questions about Darwin selection and performance and I thought that this might be a good time to look at some performance figures.
As usual, I am not too interested is direct comparisons with the market but rather in how Darwins did with respect to other alternative investments; as this is the role I feel they should play for most investors.
Naturally, there are a lot of benchmarks we could use but I wanted to try and make it as simple as possible, so below I have used 3 widely used ETFs:
– JP MORGAN ETF TRUST MANAGED FUTURES STRATEGY ETF USD > Approx. YTD Perf. -11.49%
– ETF SERIES SOLUTIONS ALPHACLONE ALTERNATIVE ALPHA ETF > Approx. YTD Perf. -24.91%
– GLOBAL X FDS GLOBAL X HEDGE FD TOP EQ HLDGS IDX ETF > Approx. YTD Perf. -25.50%
In terms of Darwins, I will highlight the performance of the Top 5 Darwins in the Hall of Fame for Total ¨Performance Fees Earned’ and for the 2 Model Portfolios that I have created and track.
– Top 5 Earning Darwins > YTD Perf. +0.91% (N.B. without the worst performing Darwin the performance would be +6.03%, bringing it more in-lie with the Model Portfolios that have a higher number of Darwins in them.)
– Model Portfolio 1 (8 Darwins) > YTD Perf. +10.44%
– Darwin Model Portfolio 2 (14 Darwins) > YTD Perf. +9.55%
As usual, I have a policy of not discussing individual Darwins so please no not ask for details on the model portfolio.
Before leaving you with the supporting charts, I would like to conclude that these are very encouraging results for the overall movement and will hopefully serve to cement the understanding that this is an incredible opportunity for both traders and investors.

Chart of the Day

“A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.” – Steve Jobs

Remember that this kind of strong dollar breaks the world. After Monetary and Fiscal policy, this is the next thing that needs to be addressed. More on this along with current position updates in today’s webinar session.
