Trading system commentary
42 closed trades | 64% winners
Both of our trading systems continue to really enjoy this market environment, especially Merlin, which is coasting on its long exposure and riding the broad uptrend in stocks. Even though it feels uncomfortable to stay long a frothy market, this system will continue to take profits in stretched positions and deploy that cash immediately back into lower risk more actionable long setups.
Lamorak has to work harder to keep pace in strong uptrends, so the fact that it’s posting these types of numbers is something I’m really happy to see.
