Resultados sistemas a Mayo 2.015.

Ya acabado el mes de mayo podemos ver los resultados de los sistemas (salvo error de anotación). Para tener una orientación, también publico los completos del año 2.014, 2.013 y 2.012 para cada uno de ellos. Los resultados en este mes han sido siguen mejorando y la cartera global incrementa los beneficios este 2.015. Los resultados de la columna de cada mes reflejan el del periodo completo de los meses en conjunto, reflejando el periodo de 1/01/2.015 hasta el fin de mes correspondiente. Del sistema SPAG publico los resultados en sus dos versiones actuales, la SPAG y SPAGV2. He incluido en la tabla los resultados del último sistema publicado el IntraDiaFull (IDF) pero solo aplicado a 4 mercados, 2 europeos (Dax y CAC) y dos americanos (Mini SP y Mini Rusell ).  Este mes han habido 12 del total de sistemas que se salden con resultado positivo en su acumulado anual 2.015.
Lo que si queda claro, mes tras mes, que es  imprescindible una buena diversificación tanto de sistemas y estilos de operativa como en la operativa en distintos derivados para poder ser minimamente consistente en los resultados y tratar de minimizar las pérdidas.. Siempre podemos encontrarnos sistemas que deben apartarse de la operativa y deber ser sustituidos por otros que tengamos a disposición en reserva. Siempre hay que estar investigando en nuevos sistemas, derivados y estilos de operativa. Por muchos sistemas de que dispongamos, no tenemos asegurada rentabilidad alguna y si sufrimiento para conseguirla. Unos años unos sistemas fallan y al siguiente remontan el vuelo y vuelven a los beneficios, pero también sucede al revés. NO HAY NADA QUE FUNCIONE SIEMPRE Y EN TODOS LOS ESCENARIOS.
Tengo ya comercializándose y auditándose de forma externa nuevos sistemas automáticos de trading en la plataforma de TradingMotion. Si algún lector desea tener información de dichos sistemas pueden verlos alli bajo el nombre del desarrollador Esoftrading. Los sistemas alli comercializados no son ninguno de os publicados aqui en este blog. También pueden escribirme un mail solicitando información.
Veamos los resultados de todos los sistemas sin detalle de su drawdown actual en esta ocasión: (clica en la imagen para verla más grande y clara):

Durante el mes ha habido momentos en que los resultados positivos de la cartera casi alcanzan los 80.000 euros, lo cual implica que con el resultados cerrado del mes a pesar de estar con beneficios por momentos ha tenido resultados excelentes. Esto también forma parte del trading y los resultados se han de ver a medio largo plazo y no en un momento determinado como si fueran una foto. Es mas bien una secuencia.
