HFEA June 2022 strategy report

The HFEA strategy improved significantly in June as I continued accumulating SPXL at lows and trimming TMF (at some point I plan on abandoning TMF completely. It didn’t protect my portfolio at all, so I plan on using SPXL only).

Originally, I dedicated $15,000 to this strategy. That represented approx. 15% of our portfolio. If the strategy underperforms and is below this amount, I will add cash to it. If it outperforms and ends above this threshold, I will trim the position and save the cash aside. We will be rebalanced quarterly, and our next rebalancing will occur at the end of June 2022.

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.

June 2022 turned out to be a good month ever for this strategy as the SPXL helped boost the account while we trimmed the TMF fund. I will be slowly re-allocating TMF and new cash into SPXL in preparation for the next market rally. When it comes, I expect this strategy to outperform the market significantly.
