General Market Commentary
Add up the numbers in the dots in each indicator pane. A BULLISH state first occurs when the count reaches 5 out of 5. Can be used as a 'regime filter' to signal when the odds are in your favour of going long your favourite stocks or as a system to go long SPY or move to cash/bonds (AGG).
The Call For The Week of Aug 13th:
Stocks slipped last week on weakness in Europe over concerns that lenders are exposed to Turkey. The USD$ is stronger which is putting pressue on oil and gold. Everyone seems to think that the market has topped, but our cold hard logical indicators believe otherwise.
Model portfolio with corresponding Chart #'s:
1. 0% SPY or 2. 30% HXT.TO (for Canadians)
3. 0% GLD (10% waiting for allocation)
4. 25% TLT (AlphaBond).
5. 15% IWO (ValueMentum)
6. 20% SPY (Dual Momentum)
Each position is managed by a unique system, namely 1. and 2. AlphaDow, 3. AlphaBond, 4. AlphaGold, 5. ValueMentum and 6. Dual Momentum respectively.
Our main system turned BULLISH on the U.S. stock market in May of 2015 and BEARISH June 29th, 2018.
