Despite 2020 containing a once in a century pandemic, major global equity markets performed surprisingly well, with many key benchmarks finishing out the calendar year up by double-digits.
It was a bumpy ride to get there though.
In September, the S&P 500, German DAX and British FTSE 100 all fell as investors fretted over the outcome of the US Presidential election. Joe Biden eventually secured victory over Donald Trump, a development which seemed to smooth out sentiment somewhat. In response, markets rose in November and December, finishing out the year firmly in the green.
Jaaims shared in this strong performance. Our Model Portfolio rose strongly in November (+2.026%) and December (+3.484%) – closing out the 2020 calendar year up an impressive 13.137%.
Across all of our recommendations in CY2020 Jaaims booked an impressive ~34% win rate and averaged a 1.10% return per recommendation.
Yet it may just be our Top Performers which really shed light on the power of our AI trading system. In 2020 these Top Performers included: Pinterest +55%, Kohl’s Corporation +38%, Polynovo 34%, Metals X +33% and Ralph Lauren Corporation +30%.
Starting 2021 on the right foot
Our ambition to provide everyday investors with a radical new way to trade hasn’t relented in 2021. Since ringing in the New Year Jaaims has already booked a string of Monster Returns, including: +38% on Affiliated Managers Group, +28% on OM Holdings and +35% on Charles Schwab Corporation.
This comes as markets charge higher, with the S&P 500, DAX and FTSE 100 all starting out the New Year in positive territory. Cryptocurrencies shared in that jubilance for about the first week of January, though more recently have fallen steeply. For an asset class known for its volatility, this ‘correction’ should come as little surprise.
