Each strategy generates more than 50% winning trades. These are the percentages of winning and losing trades over a period of 11 years.
The average profit per trade is bigger than the average loss per trade. In the case of the Turnaround Tuesday strategy a profit is, for example, on average 17% bigger than a loss.
The average monthly return is positive in nearly all years. This is the average gross return per month. In 7 years the average monthly return is above 5%.
In nine out of ten years months with a positive return outnumber months with a negative return.
December generates a positive return in nine years. March, June and August are all positive in eight years. February and November are positive in four years.
Investui diversifies in two ways: there are four strategies and four instruments (gold, USD, DAX, S&P 500). These bars show the gross profit contribution of each strategy over the last decade.
The benefit of diversification is clearly visible. When one strategy weakens, another strategy takes over. Other strategies make a smaller, yet solid, contribution every year.
To benefit from the built-in diversification it is important to implement all signals from every strategy. The best system to implement all signals is the managed account.
These charts show the total number of trades over 11 years ranked by size and divided into winners (green) and losers (grey). Investors can compare the size of the winners and the losers. The size of the winners and the losers from the Turnaround Tuesday and the Pound Shorter strategies are, for example, much smaller.
This final chart is the gross profit based on real accounts and a back-test over ten years. The profit is calculated using the same position size for each strategy. This allows readers to compare the strategies.
