Models Sell, following the trend (GLD)

Dec-Jan Rotations: Core Mkt = Gold, Featured Mkt = Asset class Portfolio.

Signals: Gld = Sell 12/02 (TSP= waiting), AC Portfolio= waiting to rebalance.

Model notes: We are starting a new cycle (Dec-Jan) and we start off with the gold sell. Pretty straight forward. Next we are starting new feature market, the asset class portfolio. We will show a sample 3 security asset class portfolio using SPY-USO-TLO (stocks, energy, bonds). So where is the portfolio? I am waiting for a rebalance signal (sea-change signal). I am going to be demonstrating the power of using our technology, nonlinear portfolio construction. Stay tuned. Exciting stuff!

Note: ALL Mummy calculations use the TSP (Theoretical Signal Price)! The TSP metric is calculated by using the ‘close’ price of the trading day FOLLOWING the signal day (giving you plenty of time to take the signal).

Note: The following comments are based on using technical analysis to ‘flesh out’ our nonlinear trading signals.

Nonlinear Trading Themes:

  • ctm161202gGold Trading Signals (Core). This is a simple start. The trend is down and the non-linear models are not picking up an upside reversal yet. Some negative back drops include the recent rise in interest rates (and the effect on the dollar) and the technical downtrend. Where is the support? We will see.
  • Asset Class Portfolio (Featured). I will probably be displaying the portfolio using a screen shot of a spreadsheet once I get the sea-change signal (hopefully in a week or so). Anyway, expect a sample $100,000 to be split between stocks, bonds and energy. For this demonstration, we are going to use the technology to underweight the sectors on a sell or neutral, and overweight on sectors we expect to appreciate.


Premium Research notes:

Observation: Don’t sit around your Monday morning meetings giving each other high-fives with a two-star fund or strategy on the books. nonlinear portfolio construction anyone? Contact me for more info. Click the ‘Ranking’ tab to find out additional info. By the way, in 2017, I am only going to take on 4 clients. CTM can help and our rates are reasonable!

We are now offering asset class ranking (or alternatively sector ranking), using our trading signal technology on a longer timeframe. This is an exciting new product as portfolio construction has one glaring, missing puzzle piece: what asset classes will continue to outperform/advance for next month? Get your independent research here, put my 25+ years of model building experience to work for you!

Take a minute to peruse the US Equities tab. I posted the S&P 500 trading signals postmortem for the recent March-April time period (approx. as it took about a week to generate a signal at the beginning). Plus 134 Points. Great stuff!

Take a minute to check out the Forex tab on our website. I am posting the recent US Dollar May-June signals. No whipsaws and playing the surprise Brexit vote just right. Great stuff!

Take a minute to take a minute to click on our bond trading tab. Our signals took the profits in the early month while holding the long interest rates position later. It never sold rates, hinting at higher rates to come. The TBT went higher outside our test window. A nice tip-off for the future!

Check out the energy tab. We tracked crude during the run up to the US presidential election. There was plenty negativity with a surprise ending. See how nonlinear analysis walked us through it!
