Trading system commentary
November was a strong follow-through month for the stock market. The S&P500 gained 5.56% bringing its year-to-date losses to just -13.17%. This is the first time in a while that our Trade Risk Index has trailed the S&P500 in 2022 and while Merlin and Lamorak both gained slightly this month, it was nowhere near the pace of the equity market rally.
Merlin continues to keep very light long exposure in this market environment, as it waits for more clarity and confidence that buyers are stepping in around these levels. Meanwhile, our short-term system is trading more actively trying to lock in small wins and take advantage of local volatility.
It should be a close performance race (our systems versus benchmark) to finish out the year and while we definitely do not optimize our trading systems to outperform the market over short-term time horizons, it’s still a fun competition to keep track of.
