My trading style is best described as low-frequency quant trading, a portfolio of swing and trend positions, both long and short. My trading system uses four strategies and makes 50-100 trades per year. The main idea is to cut losers early and allocate capital into winners.

Below is the equity curve of my backtest since late 2000 with starting capital of $25k. Below the chart is the monthly return table. I started building and optimizing this system in early 2018. Backtests don’t predict future performance but can give an idea of the robustness of a method, and if it has positive expectancy going forward. The future is obviously going to be out-of-sample data and will put the system to its own test.

The equity curve has real returns since late 2019. I’m updating the performance chart monthly with my real trading results. The goal is to limit losses and accumulate risk premium in the US stock market over a longer period of time, using a mechanical price-based approach.
