50K DIVERSIFIED PORTFOLIO

The 50K Portfolio is a multi market, multi strategy portfolio that trades 10 different strategies on the E-mini S&P, E-mini Nasdaq, Crude Oil, Gold, and Soybeans. 7 of the 10 strategies are day trade strategies while the other 3 strategies are swing trade strategies. The portfolio has been developed to work in Tradestation, MultiCharts, and NinjaTrader.

The latest report for May 18, 2021 is below as the current portfolio is at a new equity peak. The current portfolio was released in mid December 2020 with one Revision on January 17, 2021 to include Gap Continuation and Reverse E-mini S&P instead of NightTrader E-mini S&P.

The capitalization can vary based on your brokerage margins and risk tolerance. This portfolio is diversified to the extent possible based on futures contract sizing and markets traded.

Other portfolios such as the 200K Portfolio provide additional strategy and market diversity.

REDUCING DRAWDOWN IN THE 50K PORTFOLIO
One of our most consistent strategies in Q1, 2021 is the Cobra III E-mini S&P Profit Target version. This strategy tests well going back about 20 years and has been around about as long. 
 
The question immediately comes to mind, "Would this be a better market for the 50K Portfolio than the wild E-mini Nasdaq futures?
 
We answer the question in the video and show you how to setup Cobra III to trade the E-mini S&P instead of the E-mini Nasdaq. We love trading the Nasdaq and we like nice ranges but a market that has wide ranges that continue to retrace every move can be challenging to trade.
 
The margin requirement is lower on the E-mini S&P as well. Some brokers, such as Interactive Brokers use margins that are higher than exchange margins and don't have day trade margins.
 
We still keep one Nasdaq strategy in this portfolio since we like the opportunity in Gap Continuation 2020 E-mini Nasdaq, which had a nice gain this week of 65+ points.

This is an optional adjustment and we have not officially changed the 50K Portfolio yet as of March 12, 2021.
