We made some losses at the beginning of May, mainly on precious metals portfolio. But despite May losses, we are still positive on gold, silver, platinum and palladium from the year-to-date point of view. Negative result in May cut our year-to-date profit to still solid 46.9% from 57.6% at the end of April.
April brought us solid profit on JPY and GBP pairs. On the flip side, AUD weakness surprised us and our long positions on AUD pairs were closed with losses. Our monthly profit was 14.4%and our year-to-date yield amounted to 57.6%.
March was a volatile month for our portfolio. We recorded some losses in the first half of the month, but last two weeks were really impressive with huge profits on SILVER, EUR/USD and AUD/USD positions. Our portfolio rose by 20.1% in March, which increased our year-to-date yield to 41.4%.
February was a relatively calm month on currency markets and our trading activity was low. We made a solid profit on USD/JPY strategies. On the other hand, we recorded losses on our long EUR/USD strategy after we had been wrong-footed by a rather dovish Fed statement after January 31-February 1 meeting. Our year-to-date trading result has not changed a lot vs. the end of January.
We recorded a nice profit of 23.5% on short-term strategies in January. The best results were reached on USDCAD and EURUSD strategies. High volatility of the GBP coming from political uncertainty around Brexit resulted in losses on EURGBP and GBPJPY strategies. Only two long-term strategies were closed in January and monthly result on this portfolio is neutral (-0.16%).
