Trading system commentary

After a rough start to the year, both of our trading systems rebounded throughout the month of February. The Merlin trading system remains firmly in the red but after Lamorak’s rally of 5.86% it’s now positive on the year.

Given the current high volatility and choppy stock market environment, both of these systems continue to perform as expected. All of our historic testing suggests Merlin should have difficulty right now, meanwhile our Lamorak algorithm is equipped to do better with these swings. Coincidentally, this is the exact opposite situation we found ourselves in throughout 2021 as Merlin dominated performance and Lamorak struggled to keep pace.
