Two strong months in a row. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Or is that an oncoming train? No predictions, but for now, we breathe. The Levered Butterfly was the winner this month, with the RPC Stability still in first overall. Good month for RP portfolios compared to traditional ones.
A real Tale of Two Cities kind of month for investors: stocks boomed, fixed income bolted in the opposite direction, with alternatives plugging along. Great month for the traditional portfolios, as diversification meant “de-worse-ification.” RPC Stability still in the lead, though.
Another terrible, horrible, no good month - sound familiar? In an already bad year, September was especially bad - portfolios down between 5.7 and 11.8%. Q3 dividends meant a few portfolios didn’t require many withdrawals - a thin silver lining on an otherwise dreadfully gray cloud.
August was a tale of two halves: continued upward momentum from July in the first half of the month, then pivoting mid-August and sharply declining after the 26th. By month’s end: another terrible, bad, no good month for all portfolios. Stability continues to be the cleanest dirty shirt, though.
Pretty impressive numbers for the month, in a partial bounce back after months of declines. Equities the big winners, with crypto surging too. Interestingly, though, is that even after a great month, all portfolios are still below their level at the start of June.
