Trading system commentary

You wouldn’t know it looking only at the final numbers, but the major averages saw some ugly downside action during the first half of the month but ended with a strong rebound and close near their highs. Our Trading Systems were pretty quiet overall, Merlin lost a little bit of ground while Lamorak added 0.69% and continues to be very active on the short side.

Our Trade Risk Index fell to -8.91% year-to-date, but this negative number is still a lot smaller than being fully long S&P500, Nasdaq, or most individual stocks throughout 2022. Once the dust ultimately settles in this bear market, we’ll ideally be in a great position to capitalize on beaten down equity prices.
