“Are those draw downs from positive positions where in essence the draw down is really just transiently reducing…”

Feedback in:

Hi Michael, I am a big fan of your podcast and listened to the recent recitation of the chapter from your book on performance data. (I have also purchased the book as well). In terms of the draw down periods – are those draw downs from positive positions where in essence the draw down is really just transiently reducing the size of an existing gain in a winning position as the market ebbs and flows? I would presume that classic trend followers would have cut their loss short on any losing position at a fraction of the draw downs quoted so cannot see how a draw down would indicate a true loss of invested principle. Thank you for any insight on this.

Drawdowns are many small losses across all markets adding up in trend less periods to form one equity drawdown. That’s not what you thought!
