2019-05-13: Comments: Watch List candidate PHAS had a pocket pivot today, and could trigger it's $14 buy point within the next day(s). The Mutual Fund Timing Service gave a signal to exit SPY and move to the safety of long-term treasuries via VUSTX. One could take this signal, or wait to confirm the performance of the model in real-time over the next several months, as opposed to it's current back-tested returns.
2019-05-12: Comments: Only PHAS (high-tight flag) on Watch List above $14. Holding SPY within the Mutual Fund Timing Portfolio.
2019-05-06: Comments: We recently launched a new mutual fund timing service, which switches between domestic and international funds, at most once every 21 trading days. When these funds are performing poorly, the model moves to long-term treasury bonds. Backtested results using data since January 2009 have been encouraging, and can be seen on our home page. This model has just been implemented on several of our real money accounts with a position in SPY until the next official mutual fund signal. Currently, the signal says to be long US stocks. Of course, there is no guarantee that the model will live up to it's backtested expectations or that the chosen funds will perform equally well going forward as they did over the past decade. However, the model is fairly simple in its signals, based purely on relative price strength of the funds and not much else, and so gives us enough confidence to apply it to our accounts. Time will tell.
