We shared our trading call performance last year this time and would be glad to do so again now. I am happy to announce that we have exceeded our previous year's annual performance. As mentioned previously, it is important to reflect upon the year that went by, which helps in eliminating repeated mistakes, and explore the best way to approach the commodity markets.
As illustrated earlier, 98% of our calls are positional in nature which was carried for anywhere from 2 days to 10 days or even longer in some instances. A weekly report on the performance of the calls is also provided and we encourage you to keep following it. I am very happy and delighted to announce that our calls have given a net % return of 83%, excluding taxes and other costs for the whole year, a minor fall compared to the previous year. The year gone was extremely volatile and margins doubling in many cases. Comparing this performance with the benchmarks like the Bloomberg ,Commodity index and Reuters index, we have beaten them and hope to do much better in the coming year.
As illustrated before, all our calls are trade able calls and since it is positional in nature, the chances of slippage are minimal, though it cannot be avoided fully.
Call Performance for the period Nov 2020 Till Oct 2021
As seen in the table above, we have used 2 lots for initiation purposes. But, there are only 30-35% 9mes that he second lot has been traded. Mostly the ﬁrst initiation level will be when the call is given and the next one on dips to certain support level. There is a part proﬁt that is taken ( part t/p). Once, the ﬁrst take proﬁt level is achieved, we immediately move the stop loss to cost or in between cost and stop loss depending on the prevailing view, thus ensuring we do not loose on a call that we have booked part proﬁt earlier. This is a prudent risk management strategy one should adhere, to protect the proﬁts and minimize the losses.
Also, please use the same leverage for all our calls, do not try to increase the leverage if you see a good winning streak. Another important thing to note, is that our success % ratio though has gone below in couple of months, we have been judicious and ruthless in risk management and posi9on sizing which is done objectively. These are the two important factors investors should work on more than accumulating knowledge on the markets.
As seen in the above table on margins, the margin for individual commodities and the total margin employed for 2 lots of Rs. 10,00,000 has been used as a base capital for calculating proﬁts. We send the weekly call performance to all our clients which elaborates on the call that was given and its conclusion
MONTHWISE PROFIT/LOSS FROM NOVEMBER 2020 TO OCTOBER 2021
As always, we urge you not to be selective on our calls and act on all of them religiously, as soon as it is received, as the commodity markets do not give much time for investors to respond. Due to our prudent risk management strategies, we have been able to deliver good returns and we hope you follow the same by adhering to our stop loss levels and target levels strictly.
We hope you have had a fruitful trading experience so far and please do write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will be pleased to assist you in any way possible.
