MarketClub's model portfolio section showcases three portfolios using MarketClub's strategies that you can follow and see how well they are doing. We provide you with all the entry and exit points for each market in each portfolio so there is nothing to second guess.
World Cup Portfolio
The final results are in and once again the World Cup portfolio (WCP) knocked it out of the park with triple digit returns. This is the third time in 7 years that this portfolio has chalked up some of the best returns in the investment world. We have continually published the daily signals and the results for this portfolio since 2007, so this year's results are no fluke.
The big winner in 2014 was, of course, being short crude oil. This strategy produced spectacular results and was responsible for almost half of our profits for the entire portfolio. With gains of $38,130, representing a 76% return on total invested capital, this commodity was a standout, just trading one contract of crude oil. Next up was gold, which was responsible for producing a return of $7,793, equaling a 15.5% return on invested capital.
Total capital needed to trade the World Cup portfolio is $50,000. (Remember, we are not brokers nor do we manage money.)
Every single market showed a profit in 2014, however, not every single market showed a profit in every quarter. This is why it is so important to be diversified as it lowers your risk profile while raising you profit profile.
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.
As we begin the second quarter of 2014, I want to bring to your attention one of the "hidden jewels" of MarketClub.
A Portfolio With Results!
MarketClub's World Cup Portfolio (WCP) has never had a losing year in the 6 1/2 years that we have been tracking this portfolio.
When this portfolio was constructed almost 7 years ago, it was designed to include common elements that we thought would be important to the world. With an ever-expanding population worldwide, food is going to continue to be a major item. Likewise energy is going to play an increasingly important element in the world's economy. Over the years, the Dollar has also had its ups and downs and provided some great opportunities. Lastly, we looked at a store of value that has been in place since time begun and that is why we wanted to be actively involved in the movement of gold.
