Futures Micro and Mini Portfolios Weekly Update
If you have not matched the staggering profits in the Model Portfolios, you are assuming the role of the fortune teller/forecaster/futures analyst depicted above. When are you going to learn that price, not you or anyone else, forecasts the future?
If you have tinkered with and cherry-picked which trades you are going to make, you have violated the rules and are flying on the seat of your pants. You will crash and burn at some point- without rules, you will be doomed eventually.
On a more positive note, we literally made a fortune this week. If you did not, you are lacking in discipline and you need to work on that.
First of all, the best way to see how the Model Portfolios are performing is the number of open mega-trades. In the 226k, we have eleven of the twenty-nine markets we trade with an open trade profit of $3,000.00 or more. The other Model Portfolios are stuffed with huge open winning trades as well.
The best news is that all but one of the Model Portfolios made historic equity high weekly closes. This shows you the incredible power of trend following. Our algorithm cannot miss a major move (we have missed none) and we are able to elongate a winning trade like no other method I know. Look at the trading metrics- they are literally out of this world.
We make money by being long term position trend traders- nothing more-nothing less. You need to be 100% disciplined to replicate the Model Portfolios and the more you deviate from full discipline, the worse your performance.
Sell April Gold and Sell June Gold (16k/28k/17k/5k). (This is a reversal and roll-over).
**Trades can be entered during the electronic night session or in the morning. However, in volatile stock index and currency markets, you should enter a trade as soon as possible
-meaning the beginning of the electronic night session as it will tend to be a more profitable entry point. Trades shown in the Model Portfolio spreadsheet are the fills I get for my own trades. Your trade entries can be better or worse.
