Typically top swing trading hedge funds would like to see at least 8 weeks of performance but it seems you have really got the swing of things so I'd say in your case you're probably looking at 6 weeks max to start fielding offers. Keep it up!!

you can't be serious...i'm assuming something like 6 months minimum...even i wouldn't trust just 8 weeks. who would possibly be interested?

Admittedly I'm not that familiar specifically with swing trading HFs but that still seems very short to me. On the scale of a HF's monthly track record that's only 2 data points, surely that's way too short to be able to infer anything from?

also...assuming i can keep up this performance...which funds should i reach out to?
this isn't a relative value strategy...so i'm not sure who hires traders/PMs for this kind of strategy?

At a 12% monthly return just keep trading until you have all the money. Why would you bother with a fund?

I can help you setup a CTA or CPO and market your own bootstrapped fund to investors, provided you meet the eligibility.
