Whether you are wondering how to get started with stocks, or an experienced investor trying to add a new source of investing ideas to your portfolio, this basic plan is a great entry level introduction to the world of stocks and investment.
As you can see, the average user has benefited this way and this way.
Trademound has beaten the market year after year by staying true to our fund manager's investing philosophy. Considering that many investments out there generate a 5-10% annual return, you can imagine how stratospheric the above return is in comparison. And the backtests even include tumultuous periods like the 2020 coronavirus crash.
To be clear, just because our stratgies performed like that in the past does not mean they will perform like that in the future. The future is not guaranteed. But considering that the S&P 500 gives an annual return of 9.8% per year over the last 90 years, you can see the potential. It's important to understand that stocks can and do go down but investing is still the best way to build long-term wealth.
Although the backtests have great returns, they also have noteworthy drawdowns. In other words, this isn't a free ride to extreme wealth. The potential for a higher return comes with plenty of risk. The good news it that the average drawdown furation in the backtest is as little as 5 weeks.
Backtest means applying our trading strategies against historical stock market data to see how the trades could have performed. The results shown on this page are not live trading results: they are results of the backtests. These results certainly do not guarantee future results. See disclaimer here.
