That is still a good return. 2005 was a tough year, imo. It is the first year I've recorded losses (due to one major investment going sour) since 2000- so for only 2 years in the making I think you did well.

FWIW, I noticed a couple of your trades, from my perspective, were emotional. I would challenge you to try to take that out of play, and know your entry/exit and targets before you enter a trade.

Final Thoughts:

The CFDTD Fund’s performance during the month of January 2006 was
quite good. Last month, the Fund outperformed the S&P 500 by a
decent margin…16.18% versus 2.55% for the Fund’s benchmark! The
question remains: will it continue to out perform its benchmark for the
remaining eleven months and in the process help me attain my so far
elusive goal of triple digit return in one calendar year? They say the third
time is the charm…This is my third year managing this Fund and I wonder
if I will finally make my number in 2006…As you can see, I just
won’t give up…in spite of the fact that I have had to eat crow every
December 31st…which, to put it mildly, has left a very nasty taste in
my mouth and thus ruined my New Year’s celebration(s) last two years
in a row! However, I am quite hopeful that this year, I will get to reach
nirvana…

Let’s see how the rest of this year unfolds…


Cheers!
