Our top 2017 strategies:

SPY, the S&P500 ETF, returned 1.79%.

Market comment:

Despite the unprecedented political uncertainty, volatility in the SP500 dived this month causing our volatility harvesting strategy, Maximum Yield, to return more than 10% in just one month. Our Nasdaq 100 strategy returned 9.88%. 

All other strategies were positive for January but with smaller gains of 1-3%. The only negative strategy for the month was the Gold-USD strategy at -2.06%.
