After we had an excellent month in May with +13.38%, June also started with a new all-time high on June 5th. Our real money account reached over $143,000. Unfortunately, we were unable to maintain this level as there was another violent trading day on June 11 (-6%), which caused volatilities to rise sharply.
June performance in real money account
We started June with an account balance of $137,535.68 and stood at $136,523.97 on June 30, a percentage loss of 0.74%. From a monthly perspective, the loss is small. However, if you consider it as a drawdown from an all-time high, we had to cope with about 4.5%.
Compared to the well-known indices, we, unfortunately, lag somewhat in June:
- Short calls on VXX at + $175.24
- Long in Oats (ZO) at + $1,756.86
