So I started a portfolio that reflects my short-term view of how recent macro news and data will affect the markets in the upcoming week. The portfolio will initially operate under the following constraints: - the view will be monetized through ETFs (usually 1-3 ETFs per week) - trades will be entered on Monday around market open - all positions will be closed on Friday around market close - all cash, long trades initially, but leveraged and inverse ETFs are ok - these rules may be altered from time to time My modest objective for this portfolio is to beat S&P 500 returns (not risk-adjusted) over any 12-month period. I plan to post the upcoming weekly trades over the weekend, before placing them, with a short justification, and will try to keep the stats on here. Here are the first two weeks’ trades, since the inception of this portfolio (the entry/exit timings are a little off my Monday/Friday goal for these as I was still working out the mechanics.) My next week's trade is VWO: EM showing a bit of a bounce, especially EM Aisa; likely to continue into next week with trade war negotiations making headway. None of my posts represent an investment advice, and are provided for entertainment purposes only.
