Trading system commentary

It was a solid month of performance for our trading systems, specifically Merlin, which rebounded nicely and finished October up over 5%. There were 12 closed trades, 8 of them winners, and the size of the winners were larger than the size of its losers.

Lamorak couldn’t get as much traction this month, it did trade actively, and had a win percentage of 58%, but a few outsized losers dragged down the overall win-to-loss ratio. Both trading systems are beating our 60/40 stocks/bonds benchmark heading into the month of November.
