trading updateWhat really stood out for the month of July was the high number of bearish signals. And they weren't helping.

trading updateWith only two trades early in the month, there wasn't much happening.

trading updateWith only one trade early in the month, there wasn't much happening (again). Time was mostly spent on running simulations and double-checking software.

trading updateOctober started with two losing trades, which were later compensated with one winning trade. Just like the textbook says, keep your losses small and let your winners run. But in reality, trading is never that easy because this month could very easily have hurt your trading result on several occasions.

trading updateThe most important item this month was the bug! It was discovered and fixed and the effect already shows.

But first let's recap what happened this month in this Greed & Fear trading update for the month of June.

trading updateThe miserable performance of April certainly wasn't compensated in May. This month the model portfolio posted a net trading loss of $936,50 in 4 long trades on the E-mini S&P (the only thing that's traded in the model portfolio).

The neural network once again had a  difficult time making the right calls of expected market direction, we were on the wrong side of market again and again. The NN generated many flip-flopping signals, just as the stock market flip-flopped its direction. Unfortunately the signals did not line up with market movement at the right moment so the NN was always just behind the curve.

trading updateIt's that time of the month, the monthly trading update. If you've missed the previous one, it's recommended reading that first for better understanding. And if you just want the numbers, those are updated on the results-page of 2018.

For validation, don't forget to check out the actual and verified trading results which are continuously posted real time on the autotrading platform(s).

trading updateSince I stopped posting the daily indicator and moved to an autotrading platform to publish trading signals, it has been relatively quiet on this blog with regards to market updates. That's about to change.

On a monthly basis I will now go through what happened that month. Of course, the actual and verified trading results are continuously posted real time on the autotrading platform(s), but some extra explanation on the trading decisions will be given in these monthly updates. This way current and potential investors will likely have a better understanding of how things work in the Greed and Fear model portfolio.

Starting tomorrow, I will be suspending my daily market updates on this blog. The reason is I have joined a collective trading platform where I will continue my trading.
