Current Thinking & Upcoming Positioning
This year we have booked five winners and taken one loser. Statistically, we were due to get a trade wrong. Five winners and one loser is an 83% batting average. Our historical batting average is 79% so we are right where we want to be.
The total return is 105.20%. So the per trade return is 17.53% and the average winner is 21.04%.
