Isn’t It Time You Took A Look At These Two Portfolios?

How would you like to know exactly what to do the next day with any given market and the price you want to do business at? What if the odds are amazingly in your favor when you trade and approach the market this way?

Sounds like a no-brainer.

The trading approach I'm about to share with you is one that has proven to be successful in both bull and bear markets.

If this sounds like some "pie-in-the-sky," too good to be true idea - it isn't. I have been involved with the markets for many years and this is the one approach that I have seen consistently make money. In fact, it is the genesis of my success in the markets.

This trading approach produced gains of 65.3% and 77.1% last year. Was that a fluke or just sheer good luck? How much does luck count in the market? Very little in my opinion, what really counts is having an approach that is well thought out and has proven to be successful. Once again, luck has nothing to do with that. The only lucky thing is perhaps you're reading this post and beginning to understand that there is a way to make money in any kind of market.

This well planned out approach has produced gains in one of our strategies as high as 501%, with the lowest gain being 35.3% in 2010, it has never had a losing year.

Here are the results from that approach:

2008 +501.6%
2009 +48.5%
2010 +35.3%
2011 +186.7%
2012 +57.6%
2013 +77.1%
2014 First six months only +34%

You can easily replicate this approach in your own trading. Every day we show you the potential points where you need to take action either to get in or out of the market.

How To Lower Your Investment Risk

Stops and money management are very important, but another key in reducing your risk is diversification. I'm sure you've heard the expression, "don't put all your eggs in one basket." Well, that's certainly true in today's market. By diversifying into five different markets, you're taking a big chunk of the risk away from your trading capital.

Internet Portfolio

Last year, our Internet portfolio produced a gain of 65.3%. So far this year, this portfolio is doing well with a first quarter gain of 18.6%. The second quarter produced a small loss of 2.8%. So the gain for the first half of the year was 15.8%. Remember, this return on capital was achieved with a lower risk to your portfolio.

The return of 15.8% on the Internet portfolio is based on a $50,000 portfolio. As I said earlier, it's all about percentages. The same type of percentage returns would have been available had it been a much larger portfolio.

If your investment capital is $50,000, you would divide that evenly between the five markets in this portfolio. By spreading your capital into five different shares, you are in fact reducing the risk based on the volatility of the number of shares you combine in each stock.

For example, some company's shares are expensive. Amazon trades around $340 a share, so you would only be buying 25 or 30 shares in Amazon. With other companies like Yahoo, you may be buying 250 or 300 shares, depending on where Yahoo is trading at the time.

So why don't we just put all our money into one great stock?

Let's say you did just that, and that special stock skyrockets. When that happens, it's party time and everyone is happy. But what if the reverse is true and that special stock goes down and you lose a large chunk of your $50,000. My guess is that you wouldn't be so happy. Betting on one stock is just a little above going to the race track and betting on a long shot. The truth is, long shots don't come in and win very often.

So why not do the smart thing, diversify your funds and get consistently good returns on your hard earned capital. If you want excitement, go to Vegas have some fun. With your core investment money, you should go with a proven investment strategy.

By diversifying your funds, you are at the same time lowering your risk and increasing the odds that you will make money.

World Cup Portfolio

We've been tracking our World Cup portfolio for several years. This portfolio has performed extremely well. In the first quarter of this year, this portfolio was up 31.5%. In the second quarter, it managed to eke out a gain of 2.5% in difficult market conditions. For the first six months of 2014, the World Cup portfolio is up 34%.

The 34% return on invested capital in the World Cup portfolio is based on a $50,000 investment. Had the investment been larger, the percentage returns would have been the same.

The results above are for the World Cup portfolio, trading just one futures contract per market. This is a very conservative way to approach the futures market, as we de-leverage the trading results by putting up more margin than is required by the broker or the exchange. You can certainly lose money trading corn in one quarter and in the next quarter we make money in the same commodity. Remember, you're in this for the long term and not looking at the day-to-day, quarter-by-quarter swings in the market.
