Trading system commentary
We saw more market volatility throughout June and a VIX spike back up towards 35. The 60/40 portfolio benchmark fell 5.29% on the month bringing its year-to-date losses to -16.21%.
Similar to the broad market, our Merlin Trading System continued to lose ground throughout June. It has been very cash heavy, however it did produce a handful of long signals early in the month which caused it to struggle as the market proceeded to roll over into month end.
Lamorak on the other hand, loved the volatility and secured a handful of wins on the long and short side which resulted in a positive 2.84% return in June and bringing its year-to-date performance up to +4.37%.
Combined, our Trade Risk Index continues to outperform our benchmark heading into the second half of the year.
