The first quarter of the year proved to be a challenging one for many traders outside of the equity markets. The "Perfect Portfolio" which tracks 4 markets was no exception. In the four ETF markets we track, the portfolio was equally split with winners in two markets and losers in two markets.
The following ETF's provided solid returns for the "Perfect Portfolio" in Q1. Both the FXE which tracks the euro, and SPY which tracks the S&P 500, managed to put in solid performances. However this was not enough to offset losses incurred in the GLD which tracks gold and the USO ETF which tracks the crude oil market. Combined losses in these markets were large enough to wipe away any gains for the quarter.
Thank you to all those who attended last Friday's "Perfect Portfolio" webinar. This webinar was recorded and will be available soon on our "Bonuses & Videos" page. We have also put together an FAQ pdf document for this portfolio which you can click here to download.
I'd also like to thank everyone for patiently waiting for the forex webinar video. There were some technical difficulties that prevented us from posting it much earlier, but it has now been added to the "Bonuses & Videos" page as well.
This week's weeks webinar, entitled "Beginner's Trading Terminology" will be great for those of you who are new to trading or interested in beginning, but are confused by all of the jargon that gets tossed around. As Adam said in his post earlier today, you have to understand the language of the market before you can understand what it is telling you.
