Hello Dear Investors, June is over and so it's time for the Big Update which will include considerations about last Week, Month, Quarter, Semester of GTD.
WEEKLY BALANCE JUNE 2018
- During the Week a + 0.49%.
Last Week of June was very imbued of Fog, and for some components of this Portfolio, it was better to avoid some movements. BTW, activity when possible that exploited half some pairs, but it's good the same since the month doesn't count only the last week.
JUNE BALANCE 2018
- Total Replication of June is + 4.03%.
June was a good month for some strategies. A balance between various components of the Portfolio that are always looking for more than one single view on Markets has allowed to look for different movements and directions and even if sometimes the system get trapped in some fake directions, June is ended with a positive balance. I will remember those last four weeks as particularly tricky at all, sometimes Directions have been very slow, instead changes of amplitude and power really fast but unclear.
DARWINIA OF JUNE
SECOND QUARTER 2018
- Second Quarter of 2018 is ended with a + 12%.
A quarter is something which already matters more than a single month, the percentage result is quite positive and very similar to the first quarter of the year. The percentage of DD has always been very low and although April was flat, in following two months the Darwin was able to score new highs.
FIRST SEMESTER 2018
For sure a semester is something that has much more interest from our point of view, does not represent a certain level of noise that is present on shorter time bands and has a higher statistical value. This first half went well for the strategy, the return was well spread both during the months and during the two quarters. A look at the percentage:
- Replication of the Semester is +27.07%.
The result was in our opinion not stored in a quiet phase of the market and although some components could do more than they did, others instead performed a little above their average. This balance has led to a truly decent result from our point of view, considered also that max DD was around +- 4% over the period.
We continued to work on the general alignment, some minor changes after long observations allowed us to give little improvements to the portfolio, we do not stop and will never stop working on the general alignment because we are always of the idea that it is possible to improve something.
A big thanks goes to Investors that have kept balance on GTD during these months, I hope you are enjoying the ride, thanks for the Trust.
That's all, waiting the evolution of second semester too, have a nice day!
