Calculated my ’07 return tonight, so thought I’d do the same for previous years just for the heck of it. The numbers are quite gaudy and I try not to get greedy and expect these every year, because it’s impossible. We’re in a historic bull market, so might as well enjoy is while it lasts. Most important thing is to not have a down year and keep making money.
- 2005*: 802%
- 2006 : 60%
- 2007 : 175%
*Account opened with $2,000 on 4/28/05. This number is especially gaudy because I loaded up on a couple of sugar contracts (more leverage than I should have used) and rode sugar from 9 cents up to 14 cents. Nice trade but lucky timing, which I am grateful for.
