I just wanted to begin with a quick summary of 2021 and the start of 2022. Those of you who have been following (and copying) for a while will know that I started out primarily trading stocks on the US markets, namely the S&P500, the DJ30 and the Nasdaq 100.
2021 was the year I really started to make progress, you'll recall that 2020, my very first year of trading, resulted in a loss of -8.67%. Whilst disappointing, I sure learnt a hell of a lot which gave me reassurance and confidence going in to 2021. Despite it being a very difficult year I managed to finish the year +19.41%.
I was full of optimism going in to 2022 but the US stocks took a fair dip as did our crypto assets and we ended January at -17.42% so you can imagine my disappointment. I'd been looking over the strategy and I had also become fascinated by the forex market. I'd given careful consideration and after back testing data from the previous year I was confident I could gain better returns from forex trading versus the other asset classes (stocks, crypto, ETFs, etc).
I therefore took the decision in the first week of Feb to focus purely on forex via my recently launched project CromwellFX.net. Of course I shall keep a very close eye on the markets and will continue to consider any other opportunity which may present itself. You can read all about the latest progress with CromwellFX here >> but it really helped the ADR portfolio and we finished Feb at +2.76%
Existing investors of ADR do not need to take any action as long as you are happy with my approach, of course if you wish to invest 100% into forex then you can close your copy of ADR and re-invest the equity into CromwellFX, it's entirely up to you.
I am sure you will not need me to tell you that the current conflict between Russia and the Ukraine remains a very real concern and I am talking in human terms, it has been heart-breaking watching the situation unfold via the media and my heart goes out to all of those affected. I pray that a resolution is found quickly before further lives are lost.
I wish you all well and if ever you need me then please do reach out.
