The World Cup Portfolio once again showed its resilience and produced a solid return of just over 16% in Q3. For many traders, Q3 was a difficult quarter and there were certainly parts of the World Cup Portfolio that did not fare well either during this quarter. However, those losses were offset with profits from other parts of the portfolio. That is one of the principal reasons why the portfolio trades six different markets that have a low correlation rate.
In case you are not familiar with MarketClub's World Cup Portfolio, here are the six markets: corn, wheat, soybeans, crude oil, gold and the dollar index. Out of those six markets, the portfolio made money in five of them, the only disappointment was the dollar index which has proven to be a frustrating, trend-less market over the last couple of quarters.
Here are the individual results for each market trading one contract.
Crude oil +$7,010.00
Dollar Index -$5,235.00
Total net profit for the quarter was $8,099.00, for a 16.20% return for the quarter.
Since we have been tracking this portfolio since 2007 (33 quarters), it's only had losses in 6 of those quarters, but it has never had a negative year.
Ideally this portfolio should be funded with $50,000 and be able to trade futures contracts. You would not use options nor would you leverage up this portfolio to the max. You could double the margin positions to be on the conservative side, which gives you a backup plan in case your first trade does not work.
If you'd like to learn more about the World Cup portfolio and trading rules, I invite you to check out this page where you are given not only the trading rules, but the signals every day for each of the six markets. There is no guesswork involved in this portfolio, it is simply an algorithm that when employed correctly works well. I just want to emphasize that this is not a get rich quick scheme, rather it is a game plan to employ as part of your overall portfolio to give you diversification in your overall approach to the market.
I strongly suggest that you practice trading this portfolio on paper before jumping into the market with your money. That way, you'll have a better understanding of how it works and if it's right for you.
