Portfolio Update

Trading conditions have been less conducive to our strategy in recent weeks. Mean reversion across a number of sectors have reduced the quantity of high quality trend continuation plays available.

These periods tend to ebb and flow but it is crucially important to remain as disciplined during the tougher times as we are during the good times.

Our current live portfolio is modest in size with our positions in the UK and US defensive sectors (BA. and RTN) going through pullbacks.
