• CONTINUOUS PORTFOLIO GROWTH: Enjoy consistent asset growth – whether the market is bullish or bearish – trending higher or lower. Our strategies have an average Annual Return of 26.79% since inception (range of 18% to 36%) and collectively, have been profitable in 73 of 77 years since inception.
• SIGNIFICANT DRAWDOWNS ARE ELIMINATED: When a hard selloff or bear market strikes, your strategy has already switched to cash or the optimum defensive ETF and continues logging profits. The average annual Max Drawdown (avg. peak to trough decline) is reduced to just -11.50%! That means your portfolio doesn't need to spend years getting back to even after a severe decline, as occurred for millions of investors after the Financial Crisis in 2008-2009. All of the ETFOptimize portfolios were profitable during that recession, producing 250%-plus gains while most investors were struggling to get back to even (0%).
• EXCEPTIONAL RISK-ADJUSTED RETURNS: Our quantitative ETF-selection models analyze as many as 38 different data series to identify the appropriate market exposure and optimum ETF to own at any given time. The result is consistently robust performance regardless of the market environment. In fact, the ETFOptimize strategies have an average Risk-Adjusted Ruturn across all models of 2.11,* compared to the S&P 500 at 0.73.
Select an ETFOptimize strategy that's right for your needs, and experience the confidence and peace-of-mind you'll get from an investment system that's consistently profitable.
How Stop-Loss Orders Make You a "Sitting Duck" for Other's Profit
(Published for subscribers on Feb. 27, 2019)
Q: Should I Add a Stop-Loss Order to the ETFs in my Portfolio to Protect Against Loss?
A: The short answer is 'No' – one reason being that our strategies make all trades at mid-day on Mondays – after the weekend update of each model. However, there are several other reasons to consider why you shouldn't use a Stop-Loss Order. This article has information that will help you understand why using Stop Loss Orders can be very detrimental to your investing success.
Counterintuitively, Stop Loss Orders tend to do the opposite of what their name implies; instead, they can LOCK IN LOSSES rather than prevent them – by selling a position on a temporary tick lower. If that lower level is a popular moving average (such as the 50 or 200-day) or a clear support/resistance level, market makers and other insiders often manipulate the equity in that direction, then scoop up those automated Sell Orders to make a significant, easy profit when the ETF or stock price quickly returns to normalized levels.
There are also many other reasons, unrelated to these unscrupulous insiders, why you shouldn't add a Stop-Loss Order to positions managed by a systematic investment strategy. Learn about each of those reason in this informative article. Please access this blog post at your convenience at this link...
