Monthly and YTD Performance: December 2021, +3.48%

December was a short month, effectively ending on the 17th. Trading was focused on the expected reversal of the November down moves in key global equity indices and oil. The shortened month produced a gain of 3.49%, with 6 trades comprising 2 winners, 1 loser and 3 breakevens. Trade of the month was Japan225 long, gaining 3.25%.

Year-to-date (YTD) shows a gain of 201.8%.

It’s been another spectacular year, driven by careful trade selection and a high win ratio (minimising losers) which was achieved by moving each trade’s stop loss to breakeven as soon as possible.

I have two key metrics. Firstly, I want to see a win ratio of at least 60%. December’s win ratio was 67% and YTD is 82%. Secondly, in the winning trades, I want to see a reward/risk ratio of at least 2.0. That’s a gain of £2 for every £1 risked. December’s ratio was a meagre 1.1, caused by larger stop losses and higher risk (2 percent), which effectively halves the ratio. The YTD ratio stands at 2.3. So, all is well.
