Monthly Performance October 2023
|C. Nenner||Market||CN YTD|
Our short position carried from September was closed early in the month with a 0.95% profit. We decided not to take the short-term buy signals given along October, since there was a divergence of cycles - the short-term had turned up, while the long-term cycle continued down. We finish the period with an open short position, and a positive return of 2.95%, against a negative return for the Nasdaq of -2.53%. Our year-to-date return for the Nasdaq futures is at 75.91%.
