- Returns on trades are based on my own positions and costs, not the underlying market prices, unless otherwise noted. Returns from closed trades include trading fees. My own return may differ from the return of the underlying market because of variations in how the security I used tracks the market. In some cases, my return is based on a leveraged fund and may also include currency exchange into Canadian dollars.
