trading update

For the month of March 2022, the result is 0, there were no trades. This is just not the whole story because behind the scenes something did happen.

As you can read in the general description of the model portfolio, the method is such that the orders are entered as limit orders. Investors who enter the orders manually thus have plenty of time to do so as well. The auto traders, of course, have less work and can place an order with the press of a button. So after the order is placed, we have to wait to see if the limit is actually hit.

Three orders were sent last month. In two of them, the limit price was just not hit after which the price made an enormous movement in the intended direction. A great pity of course, but it shows once again the difference between analysis and trading.

The third order was automatically canceled (GTD order) after it had run for a certain time. This worked out favorably because the price then went in the opposite direction than we had expected on the basis of the analysis. In fact, the order is a combination of price-limit and time-limit. Within those limits, the order may become a trade, otherwise not.
