A Tough, Tough Month for the Mummy (WN, TLO)

Model Notes: The equity selloff really seems to have disrupted the flow of markets in general, switching the focus to a pair of odd bedfellow (oil and Chinese equities). February was a tough month. I hope to use lessons learned for more dramatic advantage going forward in 2016!

Current Market rotation: Core: Wheat. Featured: US Bonds.

Next rotation for March: Core Gold, Featured: S&P 500.

Model Portfolio Signals: Wheat long signal 1/22 (TSP= 492), TLO Short 1/27 (TSP=72.81)

Note: TSP is calculated by using the closing price of the trading day after the signal day. It is more realistic for trading calculations/evaluations.

Nonlinear Trading Themes:

  • CTM160223wWheat (Feb core market): This is a new core market for us. Deflationary forces were not our friends on this one. We wave bye to this but will be following again in April.
  • CTM160223bUS Bonds (Feb Feature): US Bonds (TLO basis), advanced despite the Fed bias shifting to ‘tightening’ (generally bearish for debt). This market remains my white whale. Our featured market for March will be the S&P 500.

Note: Non linear trading theme comments are based on interpretations of non-linear trading models, combined with chart price action (technical analysis).
