ETFOptimize is a pioneer in designing rules-based, algorithmic investment strategies for self-guided investors. What makes our strategies unique and so successful is that we have isolated more than 50 uncorrelated indicators derived from multiple time series... (continue reading...)
• CONSISTENT PORTFOLIO GAINS: Enjoy continuous growth of your assets – whether the market is bullish or bearish – trending higher, lower, or sideways. The ETFOptimize Premium Strategies have an Annualized Return of about 30% since inception (ranging from 15% to 71%, depending on the model), and collectively, the ETFOptimize Premium Strategies have been profitable for 98 consecutive years (100%) since the first model's inception in July 2000.
• ELIMINATE SIGNIFICANT LOSSES: Our algorithmic strategies analyze a wide range of data series to identify times of increased risk, determine the appropriate market exposure, and select the optimum ETF to own at any given time, whether that position is an Equity ETF, Defensive ETF, or a cash-proxy ETF.
On average, the ETFOptimize strategies have a Max Drawdown (worst peak-to-trough decline) of -13.3%, compared to the drawdown of their benchmarks (usually the S&P 500) at -52% since 2000. All our strategies successfully navigated the Financial Crisis, with an average gain of 366% during the five-plus years the S&P 500 was dead money, struggling to return to break-even (0%).
• EXCEPTIONAL RISK-ADJUSTED RETURNS: We craft each of our quantitative indicators from 10-15 that are carefully selected from more than 50 robustly predictive data series. We build these indicators into uncorrelated composites that determine the appropriate market exposure and the optimum ETF(s) to own at any given time for each model. Results are shown to the right...
The ETFOptimize Premium Strategies have an average Risk-Adjusted Return (Sortino ratio) across all models of 2.33 (compared to the S&P 500 at 0.45 since 2000). Our models outperform the S&P 500 each year by an average of 21.59%.
By early September 2021, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) had been climbing steadily higher for more than 10 consecutive months. By the close of trading on September 2, SPY attained a fresh, all-time high at $451.74, had set a record for the number of days without a -5% decline going back to 1997, and was about 36% higher than its pre-Covid-Crash high near $330 in mid-February 2020. It was an incredible run for the world's original and most popular ETF (avg. of $28 billion traded daily). But things were about to change...
