Trading system commentary
We flipped the script for July and finally got a consistent stocks, bonds, and risk-on market rally. The classic 60/40 portfolio saw a large monthly gain at +6.71% bringing its year-to-date losses down to -10.73%.
Our trading strategies also flipped as Merlin finally saw a rebound of nearly 3% in July while Lamorak gave up about that same amount. The stock market rally helped Merlin with it’s long-only exposure, however, Lamorak, got caught fighting a little too hard on the short side against the move up.
As we’ve shared many times in our performance reports, having one trading system zig while the other zags is a great long-term feature to help smooth out returns and take on changing market conditions.
