I’ve been thinking about expanding my trading accounts into other things for a while now.
And several months ago, I started posting a Futures portfolio on my website’s Performance Page.
Here’s the Equity Curve of that portfolio going back to 2016 (about 8 years) trading 1 contract each time via Portfolio Architect:

And here is the Report:
If we did indeed trade this portfolio on a hypothetical $25k account, then we would have beaten the market this year and would have returned over 100% in 2020, 2021, 2022.
It did have a scratch year in 2018 but it’s done well over many years.
A trader would have to decide on how big his/her account should be to trade it, but there’s definitely potential to beat the market by a huge margin.
I describe all the details of this portfolio in this video, and Elite Members will get the Tradestation EasyLanguage code if they want it.
This year is the time for branching out, at least it is for me.
In our next Newsletter, we’ll look at some stock portfolios that might do well in 2024.
