Logical Invest strategy Performance June 2016


  • For the first time in 2016 every single strategy we offer shows positive results.
  • The average return of our strategies is 8.5%, compared to 2.7% for the SPY.
  • Ten of eleven them are outperforming the S&P500 etf (SPY). Returns range from from a low 1.9% for GMR to a high 23% for our leveraged Universal Strategy. 

Some interesting observations:

  1. The Nasdaq 100 strategy has performed exceptionally well since it’s introduction. In the chart you can compare back-tested results  to ‘live trading’ results from the time the strategy was offered to subscribers.
  2. The Bug Leveraged strategy is running at almost 200% leverage and is recovering fast, returning 7% for the year and almost ready to break into new highs after a difficult 2015.
  3. The Universal Investment Strategy has proven to be a stable core portfolio choice by cutting down risk and returning a solid performance as the equity line reaches a new multi-year high for 2016.
