Philstockworld Merry May Trade Review – Part 4

SPX WEEKLYOur streak continues!  

The first 3 weeks of the month (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3) saw 142 trade ideas (almost 50 per week) with just 17 misses for an 88% win rate.  Of course - it's a bit like shooting fish in a barrel when we call a bottom correctly and, as you can tell from the large volume of picks, we put all that sidelined cash to good use.  

Not every call is bullish, of course, as I was saying in Friday's post, BALANCE is the most important aspect for your portfolios if you intend to be a trader for more than just the short run.  So, in theory, it shouldn't be possible for us to get to 100% and, actually, 88% probably means we were a little too bullish and just got lucky!  We have to watch out for that - and that's why these reviews are so important.

Our Trade Reviews not only let us know if we're on or off track but, by putting the trades in context, hopefully we remind ourselves what works and what doesn't work in vartious situations so that, when we see a similar situation, we are ready, willing AND able to pull the trigger.  

Able is a very important aspect of our trading strategies we tend to ignore.  My call to go to cash in late March left us with empty portfolios we were able to fill up in May and THAT is why we have such a fantastic winning percentage for the month - we made our selves READY and our mindset was WILLING because we were ABLE to take advantage of the market dip by going to cash.  

Just because we are long-term investors - it doesn't mean we can't time our entries and exits when we reach the tops and bottoms of our trading channels!
