HFEA December 2021 strategy report

In mid of November, I added the HFEA strategy to my portfolio. It took me a while to release funds to fund the strategy but at approximately mid of December I dedicated $15,000 (not exactly, it was slightly less but for now, $15k is my threshold) for this strategy. And here is my monthly strategy report.

As I mentioned above, I dedicated $15,000 for this strategy. It means that if a strategy underperforms and is below this threshold, I will add cash to it. If it outperforms and ends above this threshold, I will trim the position and save the cash aside.

The HFEA strategy is about investing in leveraged ETF but adding protection to the downside since the leverage works both ways. I like the idea because drawdowns can be significant.
