August 14, 2017
Welcome to a Bollinger Band Letter Special Update for the 14th of August 2017.
Our hosting service had a name server problem which prevented access to the Ice Breaker reports for a short time. The problem has been fixed. What follows is a quick Ice Breaker report to get you back up to date. The data is as of Friday August 11th.
Symbol, Open Position(s), two year total return, # of closed trades, average return
DIA, none, 29.9%, 17, 1.55%
IJR, two, 80.7%, 24, 2.50%
MDY, two, 57.9%, 20, 2.31%
QQQ, one, 87.1%, 24, 2.64%
SPY, two, 39.9%, 19, 1.78%
As you can see Ice Breaker continues to work quite well. Recently the best performers have been QQQ and IJR. I suspect that is because they have been more volatile than the others. If you have any question please feel free to contact us: https://www.bollingerbands.com/contact-us
