Looking at the simplest most profitable trading strategy since year 2000. Buy in November and sell in May, 112% return.

If you look at the chart it tells you there were 18 trades (one a year) of which there were 14 wins and 4 losers.

Err ... yes, that's how trading works. A strategy that has a winning ratio of 78%, a max drawdown of 35% and a return of 112% over 18 trades.

That is not trading, that is investing.If it does not work ,leave it as a long term term investment.

 

That is not trading a all.

6 months is not investing, 10 years is investing. Warren Buffet would be laughing at you.

Idea is good ,but not practical, after you lose 2 years amd are into your 3 rd year, then you deicide it may not work in the future.I admit Casey is very good at theories.

 

It is like the trend follower who can't take  the 7 losses in a row and 6 months of no profit.He quits  because it is not practical.

That last post doesn't make any sense either. The strategy is successful. The proof is in front of you. One trade lasting 6 months, taken every year, for 18 years results in 14 wins and 4 losers (this obviously includes the crash 2007, 2008).

 

What is there not to understand about this.

You are not going to work for 2 years without pay, but you expect others to do it.If a strategy had a 2 year drawdown and no profits, nobody is going to trade it.

It is just another trade, you open it in November and close it in May. Over the last 18 years 14 were winners (78%) and 4 were stopped out (22%).

 

You never actually read the post did you. This happens often, you jump in to critique without actually reading the play, this inevitably leads to ongoing confusion as the points you raise don't have any reference or bearing on what has actually been put forward.

 

No one said it had to be your only trade of the year, that doesn't even make sense. Any strategy could have 2 losers in a row, so what. It is a trade not an investment, it doesn't pay dividends through the year, a profit is realised when the trade is closed. Many traders hold trades open for months at a time.

 

None of the points in your last post have any meaning or relevance to the actual strategy.

, any chance of  AUS200 breaking 6160 any time soon? Then it's a clear run to the all time high of 6860 from 2007.

Hi   Good question, and good timing for the question.  There is a decent chance the ASX could reach the 6160 level as this month is our financial year end, meaning often (no guarantees) the large institutions (local) fiddle their books for this (tax tricks).  If needs be, they'll get up there against global headwinds.  

But you never know what they're doing...  I'll have a think about it.  

After that, hard to see it getting near the 2007 record.  Amazing it was that long ago...

  That's right, the high just before the crash, it has taken a long while. I was looking at the monthly chart and admiring that near vertical climb between 2003 and 2007.

So dax was indeed rescued by the dow as 24084 held and price reversed in the morning session, then a surge up for both after midday on news Trump was not planning to invoke 'national emergency law' on China.

    • London's house prices - EMEA brief 21 Aug
      Asian stocks generally up on hopes trade tensions may ease, with opes of a China - US trade resolution pushing up copper, often seen as a barometer for the economic outlook, dragging behind it miners such as BHP Billiton and Glencore. Venezuela have debased their currency taking off five zeros, along with increase minimum wage by 3000% in and effort to prop up their economy. Yesterday the world trade organisation confirmed that Turkey had lodged a trade dispute against the US. Gold gains as Trump's remarks weigh on the US dollar, whilst oil edges up on tighter US outlook and Iran sanctions. Finally, see what's going on with London house prices in the IGTV video featured video below.

    • Oil prices slip - EMEA brief 20 Aug
      Iran has stressed to OPEC over the weekend that no other member country should take up the slack for reduced oil exports in the face of Trump imposed US sanctions. Oil prices slip on concerns over slowing economic growth. Asia shares inch up with yuan ahead of Sino - US talks, whilst UK ministers are set to release their first ‘no deal’ Brexit documents on Thursday in an effort to prepare for a “worst possible” outcome. Persimmon results are expected tomorrow, with many in the sector looking to the release as a barometer for the wider housing sector and how a rising inflation rate will affect the market.

    • Over Exposed Traders, Global Taper Tantrum, Jackson Hole - DFX key themes
      There are a few undisputable and universal forces when it comes to the financial markets. One of those all-powerful winds is the concept of risk trends which is referred to by many names such as ‘risk on, risk off’ or referenced unknowingly when we blindly attribute market wide movement to animal spirits through technical cues, smart versus dumb money, panic to greed.

      Another of these truisms is the allocation of capital. While total wealth does grow and contract, it is apportioned to some market whether that is emerging market equities to US Treasuries to home mattresses. In a global market, there is also distribution to different regions according to what country or collective economy presents the best opportunities.

      And, from this parsing of investment preference; we can learn a lot about the market; but one of the most elemental solutions is the global market’s general bearing for sentiment (the risk trends referenced before). There are no easy, definitive measures for allocations across such a wide universe of markets, but there are various measures for specific areas and key ports for which to apply measure such that we come to a good understanding of the markets’ health.
