S&P 500 9-Month Moving Average

This month we’ll look at an investment strategy that’s based on the S&P 500 9-month moving average.  Specifically, if the S&P 500 is above its 9-month moving average invest 100% of capital in an S&P 500 index fund.  Otherwise, hold 100% of capital in cash.

As you’ll see from the above link, the strategy does have some merit, but I would say the results are mixed.

Timing the Market

People like to try to time the market.  But how can they tell when a good time to get in or out is?  In this month’s analysis I look at historically how the market has performed over the next twelve months given its performance over the previous twelve months.  The results seem counterintuitive, but maybe that’s why timing the market doesn’t usually work out very well.

Ride Out or Sit Out a Bear Market

We aren’t quite in a bear market right now, but we’re definitely in correction territory.  The Dow and NASDAQ are down about 10% from their all-time highs earlier this year.

With that as a back drop, the current analysis covers, historically, if it was better to sell and sit out the market whenever there was a drop of 20% from the peak in the previous 200 trading days, or if it was better to just hold and wait it out.
