Trump Time, Swing Time!

Trump Time, Swing Time!

I guess we will learn about this market period like the Trump Era

The markets will divide in the future for 2 periods – Before Trump and After Trump. I am not alone with a similar opinion – New York Times, Bloomberg, Yahoo Finance, Politico just to name few who comment the same. Markets could be hit anytime by the adverse tweet declaring one-sided act and with an immediate effect counted in days.

Systematic traders are facing new challenges in these times

Markets are driven by the phenomenon unknown before, with a load of uncertainty – what´s next and what effect the trade war could trigger. Automated systems are based also on the specific patterns in the markets, which are repeated over and over during the decades.

The huge number of automated systems in the industry, thousands of whole hedge funds too, were hit by the long-lasting odd situation in markets. Some of the Petronel Systems were affected as well, the performance of several systems is below their usual returns.

Solution? Swing!

Luckily we have a solution for the period. Swing systems I used to utilize mainly for balancing the portfolios. And they are doing particularly great now. Great in the whole period! In the Trump era, the performance of our swing systems is about 20% above the standard levels! It is time to employ them more.

Our swings Xenia CT and Lucius LH are trading in the markets, which are out of the main focus. Markets with lower volume. Also, Cotton and Lean hogs markets are directly connected with their processing industries making the huge price manipulation more difficult. And both systems are frequent traders trading most days of the month.

Taurus ES is a different kind of a swing. Operating in the world biggest market, S&P. The mean reversion system. Waiting for the storm and trading the calming after the storm. Being right in 68% occasions. Trump era suits him really well 🙂

Better solution? Swing Portfolio!

Putting all 3 swing systems into the portfolio makes the WOW effect. The equity of PS-3 Portfolio Swing is almost straight like a line, performance is balanced and with enough trades. Both longs and shorts. Balanced, 3 different markets, 3 different and contrary logic. Working in Trump era better than before. Wow!

I am updating my personal portfolios putting more accent for these systems. Take a free trial and check PS-3 Portfolio Swing too. It is worth to try, I promise!
