2013 Final TableAbove is the final summary table for 2013.  All trades for 2013 assumed $20,000 of investment capital for each trade.  Ten indexes were traded in 2013: SPX, DOW, Nasdaq, Russell, Financials, Real Estate, Treasuries, Gold, Silver, and Energy.  Seven of the ten indexes produces positive returns, three lost money.  The biggest winner was the Russell returning $24,884, the big loser was Gold losing $10,521.  Here’s a look at the these 10 indexes:

  • The Russell was top performing sector for 2013.  The System took 12 trades, 8 winners and 4 losers that netted: $4759, -$38, -$151, $1,897, $680, $4,331, $6539, $576, -$854, -$1353, $7108, $1390 for a total return of $24,884.

  • Real Estate finished the year as the sixth best performing index.  It was  very unique index as it corrected far deeper than the other indexes.  It began the year with a nice bullish run and finished with a large sell off. For the year, Real Estate took 10 trades, 9 were winners and only 1 trade lost money.  These 10 trades returned: $2594, $1437, $4328, $3075, $3272, $1124, $407, $968, -$367, $30 for a total return of $16,868.
  • The seventh and final index to earn a positive return for 2013 was the Nasdaq.   The Alphahorn Swing System took 11 trades, 7 winners and 4 losers that returned:  -$344, -$586, $948, -$239, $2192, $1397, $3294, $135, $4675, -$314, $1380 for a total return of $12,538.
  • The System took only 1 trade for the Treasuries, then dropped that index, that trade lost -$453.

  • Finally Gold was the big loser of 2013. A good deal of the blame is on my shoulders as I put my incorrect wave count ahead of the system and tried repeatedly to catch a falling knife.  Gold’s 9 trades produced only one positive trade and 8 losers: -$758, $1974, -$4439, -$1287, -$2330, -$1252, -$534, -$57, -$1838 for a total loss of $10,521.

In total, the Alphahorn Swing System took 91 trades in 2013 that netted $123,568 or a 61.78% return on the $200,000 of capital as of 1/1/2013.  2013 will begin with $323,568 of capital and will invest $30,000 per trade.
