    Richard,

    I have added some statistics for closed trades, including those you requested. Trading signals are usually sent by email and added to our web site a few hours after the market close and they are simple buy/sell XYZ (ETF symbol).

    Are these all the trades you made over the last two years???

  4. admin on October 10th, 2009 2:07 pm

    Yes, those are all CLOSED trades from January 2008.

    What about putting trailing stop-loss orders on ETFs?

  6. admin on January 7th, 2010 4:45 pm

    Rich, all our positions have a trailing stop loss…

    I am new member, looking at the closed trades. The 2008 return as calculated by you is 28.8%. But if I calculate the return trade by trade (compounging on the earlier trade), it is coming to a much higher value. My calculation shows a rise of 107%. Please explain.

  8. admin on July 4th, 2010 4:20 pm

    Venkat: we have a 3-ETFs portfolio. Each ETF/position represents 33.33% (100% divided by 3 positions) of the portfolio value at the time of purchase. This means if an ETF we own is up or down 3% in one day, the portfolio will be up or down 1% on that day, not 3% (assuming the other 2 positions are unchanged). All this is calculated automatically at the end of the day.

    I think the calculation you have done assumes that when an ETF is sold, the resulting amount is entirely invested in the next trade. This is how it will work with one ETF portfolio; but with 3 ETFs, it is fair to give every trade the same chance, so when we add a new position it is always 1/3 the value of the portfolio at that time.

Got something to say?
