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.

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.

    • Where can I find a list of the US ETFs which are tradable with IG? I can't receive market data for those via the API (same as for stocks), correct?
    • US Dollar - The World's Reserve Currency: The US Dollar as the world's reserve currency is an issue which causes mix reactions and thoughts. When the US Dollar  became the reserve currency there was no Euro or Chinese Renminbi. Since their introduction it has eaten into the US Dollar's world dominance and as a result has led to it declining from the 70%-80% range to the 60% range. If one remembers, the UK Pound Sterling, once was the world's reserve currency but it now only accounts for around 4% at the moment. So things can change and it is not a given that the US Dollar will remain the world's reserve currency forever. It will have to earn that right which it may well do.  The US Dollar’s share of global central bank reserves hit a 5-year low, according to the International Monetary Fund. Now is this the beginning of a significant change here? Is the US, the world superpower it once was? There is no doubt it is the mightiest country in the world at this moment in time in terms of economics but imagine if the US Dollar lost its reserve currency status. This would have a large impact on the economics within the US.  I do not envisage the US losing its status anytime soon but if things continue to get worse and other countries find ways to conduct international transactions / transfers / payments without the need to hold US Dollars, and an alternative arises then who knows. 
    • Going back to my FTSE analysis I see things as follows: 2 scenarios present themselves, other than fresh ATHs that is: 1) the move down to the turn on Thursday was a wave 1 (blue) off a larger scale wave 2 (purple) that should retrace, maybe in a complex fashion with a lot of whip saw price action maybe not, let's see; 2) the recent rally and drop to a new low was a 1-2 (red), which indicates a much stronger leg down is immanent. The #2 scenario would only be valid if price holds below the previous high (circa 7300).  I favour the #1 scenario. There was PMD on the 4H chart at wave 1 (blue), which suggests this is a turning point.  Also the 4H chart shows a 1-5 wave down to the 1 blue, which would be motive and suggests a trend change to the bearish side. There was strong NMD at wave 2 (Purple) which is consistent with a large scale retrace move. Just as with the US large caps, after the stop and turn up there was a sharp retrace drop to the Fib 76/78% zone before the current rally.  As the FTSE was in out of hours at the end of the week this market has not rallied as hard as the US markets.  Also we may yet see fresh ATHs on US large caps while the FTSE100 only puts in a counter trend rally. If we do see fresh ATHs on US large caps and only a retrace on FTSE and probably Dax and Nikkei as well then comparing these markets will be instructive for calling that top on US large caps.  We may, alternatively, see only a retrace on US large caps too if the top of the market in already in. Conclusion: we can anticipate a bullish period on all major indices BUT should guard against a quick reversal on FTSE 100 that would set up scenario #2.  Either way this market looks to have topped out so the coming months though to the Autumn will be critical to deciding things on all indices, and likely quite a few other markets. I am Long the FTSE 100, coincident with my Dow Longs and will swing this up for now but my bearish bias for the long term will keep we watchful for a break down of this rally and I will not be pyramiding this one, far too risky until things are resolved.
