I have really never before seen such a neat encapsulation of what not too do as in the case of Dighton Capital. If you want a ready made check list of all the things not to do then here it is…..
There have been quite a few winners and losers in the immediate aftermath of the 2011 crash (does this move have a name yet?), and one of the biggest losers has been discretionary trader Dighton Capital. We posted their ‘defense’ of their position two weeks ago, but things went terribly wrong since then, with a dramatic move higher in the Swiss Franc causing losses of more than -50% for Dighton in August (on top of -30% losses in July), putting the drawdown on their composite track record at a disturbing -76%.
