adaws eagle fund commentaryLast month's gains were negated due to May's disappointing "paper" loss of -12.95%.

What's interesting though is, the losses this month were only a paper loss, and due to the overbought nature of the S&P500, we are looking for a pull back to benefit our open positions.

All positions closed in May resulted in a profit. [Read more...]

Fund Commentary (Mar. 2014)

adaws eagle fund commentaryNet return for the month was 5.21% vs 0.69% for the S&P 500.

We've been a little more cautious this month due to the violent swings in the market. The most important aspect of trading is preserving capital, no matter what. Without capital, then the game is pretty much over.

Missed opportunities are far easier to live with than making big costly mistakes. [Read more...]

Fund Commentary (Feb. 2014)

adaws eagle fund commentaryIt was a rough month due to the relentless push higher, even though the economy is still in a very bad shape, and the elevated tensions between Russia and the Ukraine.

This month is predominantly a paper loss as many positions haven't yet been closed out. There is still some buffer of safety in current positions before any alert signals sound for them to be closed out. [Read more...]

  • Six new positions were opened, of which one was closed for a profit, and the remainder five heading into February and March expiry dates.

Looking Back on 2013

looking back 2013We ended 2013 on a high, generating a yearly net return of 32.16% (double that of the S&P 500 for the same period Apr-Dec).

It's been a good first year for Adaws Eagle Fund, garnering top-tier returns with tight controls on risk management.

January 2014 is already shaping up to be a good month, and we see 2014 as a year to further improve our operations and manage risk to reward returns for our investors. [Read more...]

Fund Commentary (Nov. 2013)

adaws eagle fund commentaryIt was a quiet month on the trading front. No new positions were opened, and existing positions were maintained without the need for any adjustments.

Whilst our monthly net return of -10.92% doesn't look too good on paper, this figure alone doesn't tell the whole picture. No positions were threatened or closed for a loss. In fact, this negative return will likely be reversed in December as we head into options expiry on the 21st.
