Trading system commentary

June was a strong month for the stock market which added to an already impressive recovery rally throughout 2023. We also got a moderate expansion in breadth and the number of stocks participating in the rally, which was one of the things we were looking forward to and commented on in last month’s report. Fixed income, on the other hand, saw interest rates spike across the curve driving bond prices lower.

We saw strong performance out of our Merlin and Lamorak trading systems for the month of June. Merlin benefited from a more diverse set of stocks trending higher (finally outside of mega-cap technology) since it’s been steadily raising long exposure over the past handful of weeks.

Lamorak had an even more impressive month, adding 8.67% to its bottom line thanks to some very tactical and active trading both on the long and short side. Here were the stats for the trading system this month and there will be a separate blog post coming soon expanding on this month’s action:
