Mid Cap Winners – New Investing System For Marwood Research


I try to keep Marwood Research topped up with new trading strategies every month. This month, another interesting investment strategy has been added to our program called Mid Cap Winners.

Mid Cap Winners is a medium term investing system designed for the mid cap space with an average holding period of around 60 days.

Mid Cap Winners Overview

Stocks from the mid cap space can make excellent picks because they are not as volatile as small cap stocks but they offer more growth potential than large caps.

This strategy goes against the usual buy high, sell higher mantra that we get from the momentum crowd. Instead, our system relies on simple logic to pick stocks before they go up.

Our historical simulations show impressive equity performance that is sharply better than buy and hold. We also note a solid win rate around 55% and a profit factor of 1.73 without any market timing filter applied.

This is a particularly good strategy for diversifying a momentum or futures strategy or simply trading on it’s own alongside some discretion and risk management.

Following you will find some interesting charts and graphics from the strategy. These were all produced with the Amibroker backtesting platform:
