The month of November literally catapulted our real money account upwards. We have never had such a return and is of course a positive slip-up. We are by no means aiming for double-digit percentage increases per month, but we are all the more pleased when they occur.
November performance in the real money account
We started November with a balance of $138,521.38 and stood at $181,662.42 on November 30th, a percentage increase of 31.14%.
The well-known benchmark indices also performed very well, but could not keep up with our performance by far.
- Short in Calendar Spread on VIX (VIX) with +$3,540.00
- Short Calls on Wheat (ZW) with +$538.72
- Short Calls on Soybeans (ZS) with -$1,148.78
- Short Calls on Soybean Meal (ZM) with -$891.28
Thus, the realized winnings in our real money account amount to + $2,038.66. These realized profits only contributed a very small part to the November success. We currently have a very high inventory of unrealized profits, as you can see in the screenshot at the end.
Performance since the start of the real money account
Since the real money account was launched, we have achieved an overall performance of 81.6%.
For comparison the benchmarks:
We can be very proud of our real money account performance, even if we compare ourselves to well-known hedge funds.
Current positions in our real money account
We currently have these positions open:

As mentioned above, you can see the unrealized winnings in this screenshot. It’s currently approximately $42,000. We are still in a situation of fewer trades and we are patiently waiting for attractive spots in the grain markets. Hopefully, our income strategies in Russell2000 will also be tradable again soon.
