What a week! Most of the major markets were down. Dow closed little over -4.6%, Nasdaq almost the same, S&P500 dropped little over -5% and RUT was the hardest hit dropping over -7%. Interesting! I mentioned about black swan out of nowhere last week, though this is not black swan, but 4 to 7% drop is quite interesting. My weekly gains, +0.6%.
Personally, this was a great week for me for two reasons- 1) Markets were dropping and 2) I was travelling and when I combine these two points with out-performance vs. broader markets, that tells me I am becoming a better trader.
Since I have stopped OPN for a while, so there is no point talking about details of the trades (for the skeptics, those trades are on the forum but access is not provided. This will be opened when I restart OPN and subscribers can see the performance). My overall capital gained by +0.6% this week alone. This is the lowest returns since I started OPN. But hey, it is still out-performance, by a wide margin.
Most of the markets are in for an interesting time, enjoy the ride,
Profitable trading, OP
