Video: Liquidity Returns, Dollar Slips and Risk Trends Uncertain

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

  • Markets were still shaking off the liquidity cobwebs to start the new week with a few financial centers still offline
  • The Dollar started off with its first decline in 7 days, but conviction likely awaits key fundamentals ahead
  • Risk trends have yet to throw confidence behind a build up or deleverage, and focus should be kept on correlation

How many times in your trading career have you scraped a trading strategy? Frustration in trading often peaks when a strategy comes upon a series of losses that leads many to completely start over. However, constant churn in strategy and approach without a closer examination can leads to far more harm than benefit in trading. Often strategies are abandoned after a strong of poor trades. That seems logical on the face of it, but most strategies go through good and bad runs. If strategies are regularly scraped in during poor periods, an account or portfolio accumulates 'death rattles'. Strategy, however, should change with circumstance. Yet, it is just as likely that a well-thought out strategy should be 'turned on and off' according to the market conditions. A range strategy is good for range conditions, not breakout or trend. And, when change is necessary; it is often specific components that need replacing and not the full plan from top to bottom. We look at the practicalities behind strategy replacement - or reinvention - with a mind to recent market shifts in today's Strategy Video.
