Monthly and YTD Performance: May 2022, +4.60%

May was a tough trading month as markets grappled with inflation, hawkish central banks, Russia’s war in Ukraine and China’s debilitating zero-Covid strategy. I completed only three trades of which two were winners and one was breakeven. The best trade was WTI (oil) long producing a gain of 2.96 percent. I had two bites at the S&P500, one breakeven and last Friday’s second bite, producing a gain of 1.61 percent.

The total for the month was a gain of 4.6 percent. It is nice to return a profitable month after April’s loss. Year-to-date sees a gain of 31.8 percent.

The video contains more information on the rationale for these trades and their management. This is a great learning resource. There’s always something to learn from this kind of post-event review.
