Comments:
• The track record is based on our real fills, not hypothetical performance.
• The returns exclude commissions since those vary between brokers.
• Past performance is no guarantee of future performance. Your results may vary.
• The model portfolio value based on starting value of $10,000 and compounding 10% of the portfolio per trade.
• $10,000 is just a random number, the performance can be scaled up to any number.
• Maximum of 6 trades are open at any given time with average of 5 trades.
• We use a Total Portfolio approach for performance calculation.
• This approach reflects the growth of the entire account even though we never have more than 60% of our capital at risk.
• The ROI (return on capital) is much higher than the model portfolio return due to the high cash reserve we keep.
• All capital not at risk is kept in cash.
• Performance returns are based on the entire portfolio, not just what was at risk.
