Lamorak closed trades in October
|Closed Trades||Return on Signal|
Lamorak equal weights position size across all trades, so no R-Multiple are necessary to compare signal profitability.
Merlin started off the month hot, posting strong gains and reaching profit targets in a number of its holdings. However, during the second half of October the bulk of its unrealized gains were given back and it closed down basically flat on the month (which was still ahead of its 60/40 benchmark down -2.05%).
Lamorak has been having a blockbuster year and it continued to post strong gains throughout October. It was very active throughout the month closing 24 trades which included longs and shorts.
