Difficult period, the market in January retraced from the highs of a decided 11%, after the end of the year had not been so excellent in terms of “Christmas rally”.
In these drawdown periods, in addition to cutting losses, accumulating on long-term portfolios, we must try to take home the profits where the market has overperformed.
In my case, oil gave me a + 100% price gain.
The instrument is an ETC which tracks the price of the CL futures! of which I have already written and it is the CRUD.
We are on almost 2-year highs, $ 86 per barrel, and US inventories are above expectations; In my opinion, there will be interventions at the international level to rebalance which, in large part, is due precisely to the insane increase in raw materials.
So I sold, with a 100% gain on my position, since I have a very low purchase price.
For all the reasons I have described and also due to the fact that the market is clearly discounting the news of interest rates, it is, therefore, possible a decrease even fractionated until March-April, so in my opinion, it is very important to have the liquidity to invest when there will be the recovery.
