Hey, everyone, welcome back to our usual chat that we have about the strategies in our portfolio that have performed the best over the past period.

One of the coaches at Unger Academy here, and in this new video, we’re going to be taking a look at two trading strategies that have performed pretty well recently in the Mini SP 500 market, which is one of the most liquid and widely traded futures in the world.

Ok, so this week, as I mentioned earlier, I want to talk about two strategies for the Mini SP 500.

They are two trend-following strategies that lately have worked very well, as you can see here.

Now, the first strategy has just taken a nice profit target on the short side, so basically, in a sell situation where the strategy was selling this market.

But it also worked well on the long side, where we can see that the strategy opened a long position and then the market went up and the positions closed with a Take profit.

Take profit that was set at $1,800 on one contract of SP 500.

The report on this strategy is very positive. We see the equity curve here for both the in-sample and out-of-sample periods.

Roughly speaking, the in-sample period, the one we used to develop this strategy, goes to 2018.

The period after 2018, on the other hand, consists of out-of-sample data, and therefore, we didn’t consider them in our tests.

However, the strategy maintained the gains it had shown in the development phase.

Even in the post-development period, so starting in 2019, the strategy has racked up five positive years in a row.

$1,700 in 2019, $3,295 in 2020, over $5,000 in 2021, and then 2022, what a wonderful year! Second only to 2008, which we remember because it was a very volatile year, with gains of up to $14,000.

Now 2023 also seems to have gotten off to a good start, with $3,500 in just six trades.

Let's move on to the next strategy. The following strategy also comes from very positive trades. Here we can see a Take profit on the long side worth $2,000 and a Take profit on the short side worth $3,000.

This system was also developed in 2018. However, unlike the other system, there was a slight loss in the first two years after development.

Then 2021 recovered nicely with a profit of $4,000.

In 2022 we had another outstanding year, gaining $12,167.

And most importantly, 2023, when the strategy has already made 14 trades worth over $11,000.

This is a trend-following strategy, just like the previous strategy, but in this case entry orders are placed at the breakout of the previous bar’s high or low.

If you’re interested in learning more about the rules of this strategy, I’ll leave a table in the description below with all the information that you're going to need to build these strategies.

Andrea Unger here and I help retail traders to improve their trading, scientifically. I went from being a cog in the machine in a multinational company to the only 4-Time World Trading Champion in a little more than 10 years.

I've been a professional trader since 2001 and in 2008 I became World Champion using just 4 automated trading systems. 

In 2015 I founded Unger Academy, where I teach my method of developing effecting trading strategies: a scientific, replicable and universal method, based on numbers and statistics, not hunches, which led me and my students to become Champions again and again.

Now I'm here to help you learn how to develop your own strategies, autonomously. This channel will help you improve your trading, know the markets better, and apply the scientific method to financial markets.

Becoming a trader is harder than you think, but if you have passion, will, and sufficient capital, you'll learn how to code and develop effective strategies, manage risk, and diversify a portfolio of trading systems to greatly improve your chances of becoming successful.
