Trading Consultants Inc. Weekly Review April 21st
Trading Consultants Inc and its partners will always share the facts as we believe them to be. The surprise election that was called by PM May was the kind of event that always seems to take all but the elite by surprise. These events are why we rarely use more than 10% of our margin so that when its needed to handle the surprise we can deal with it rationally and without emotion. For the first time since we began this public demo we are annualized at a negative return. That is a return of -11.2 % Some observations are important to us as we always strive to improve . Nearly 50% of our open positions are positioned for decline of the British Pound. and our charts still remain clearly in agreement . We have been able to miss the dollar decline but failed to capitalize on that decline as none of our monthly charts were convincing enough for us to take action
