Dissecting MarketClub's World Cup Portfolio

Today we are going to take a look at MarketClub's World Cup Portfolio (formerly World Commodity Portfolio) that has been tracking six markets for the past three years. I think it is fair to say that the last 36 months have presented one of the most challenging trading environments in recent memory.

So how do we do it?

I put together this very short video which is only 1 minute 45 seconds long and gives you all the information that you need to decide whether or not this approach is one that could work for you. Bear in mind that the World Cup Portfolio is a leveraged portfolio unlike our "Perfect Portfolio" which is not leveraged.

The video can be viewed right here.

Please give us your thoughts and comments on our blog. I think you will find this video very informative and educational.

All the best,

  1. Adam,

    I follow the method, but I am wondering what contracts you buy (or sell). How far out - (3 months, 6 months, a year?) And, how far out of the money? (at current spot, 10% out of the money, more?)



    1. George,

      I recommend using the nearby liquid futures contracts. It is less expensive to roll over a position than to go way with a distant contract when you are at the mercy of the Arbs.

      All the best,

  2. I'm watching this trendline very closely - especially if a double top shows up!

    Thankyou, Adam.

    1. Will,

      We trade one contract per mkt per signal. There is no adding to position after a position is taken.

      All the best,

  3. How many contracts do you test for your results?
    Were stops used? If yes or no could you elaborate.


    1. Will,

      We trade one contract per mkt per signal. There is no adding to position after a position is taken. We filter the trades and use stops based on our trade triangle technology.

      How to use trade triangles in futures and Forex.
      In the futures and Forex markets we use the weekly "Trade Triangles" for trend and the daily "Trade Triangles" for timing. Let me give you an example of how that works. If a green weekly "Trade Triangle" is in place it indicates that the trend is positive for that market. Initial entry point would be on the weekly green "Trade Triangle" and then you would use a red daily "Trade Triangle" as a stop. For example if the trend was up on the weekly you would exit a position on a red daily triangle. This is not to go short but only to exit the position and wait for the trend to reestablish itself on the upside. In the event the trend that does not reestablish itself and reverses with a weekly red "Trade Triangle" you would go short on the weekly "Trade Triangle" and use the daily "Trade Triangle"for money management and reentry points.

      All the best,
