This month, another new trading strategy called Nuggets Of Gold has been included in our research program Marwood Research. This is a daily, long/short strategy composed of simple rules that is designed to find short-term swing trades.
The month of August was characterized by a lack of direction across many of the major stock market indices. Despite any notable trend, several of our premium trading strategies were able to profit and put in a solid month of results.
Global stock markets started the month of July on the back foot following a Federal Reserve rate increase in June and some mixed economic signals.
