Trading system commentary
We saw more downward pressure for stocks and bonds for the third straight month and that has set up notable oversold conditions looking across a handful of traditional technical and breadth indicators.
Merlin unfortunately continues to trend deeper into drawdown territory as its recent additions of longs get brought down with the overall market. It’s been a challenging year for Merlin, but we still very much believe in the long-term viability of this trading system, it’s simply been out of sync with markets all year long.
Fortunately, Lamorak has been in sync and managed to profit from some of the volatility and downward pressure in stocks this month adding gains to its already positive year-to-date performance.
