Bear market trading strategy?
Step 1: See it coming.
Step 2: Get out of the way.
In a radical departure from old-school investment advisors whose clients lost their shirts in 2008, a former day trader demonstrates a DIY market timing model that gets you out of dangerous securities before they can drag down your life savings due to…
- Stock Market Crashes
- Bursting Bubbles
- Bear Markets
Buy and Hold works… until it doesn’t.
If you held only A-list stocks in 2007, your portfolio was still cut in half the very next year. Unless you’ve got a 30-year horizon that affords you the privilege of waiting out the bad times, you need a different approach.
A trading system with no emotion.
The Stock Market Cash Trigger is a mechanical model that takes emotion out of the mix. It automates decision making, and requires no special tools or software. Other timing models with proven track records are often built around proprietary algorithms and offered up as subscription alerts to the tune of $50, $75, $100 or more per month.
All you need here is a computer, the chart page that comes bundled with your online brokerage account, and 5 minutes of your time a month.
If you invest in stocks or ETFs, you can dramatically improve your returns.
More than just protection, this model will show you how to profit from corrections, crashes and bears.
— Like Microsoft? If you had held it during 2008, you would have been down -44%. Had you employed the Stock Market Cash Trigger, you would have been up +27% that year.
— Like Exxon? From 2000 to 2017, you could have doubled your total return vs. buy-and-hold.
— Prefer an ETF? Buying and holding QQQ for the past 17 years would have gotten you a +91% total return. Trading QQQ based on the Stock Market Cash Trigger would have generated +1,050%.
Yes, these are backtested returns, and there’s no shortage of critics of backtesting. For that matter, there’s no shortage of critics of mechanical trading systems, either. For the record, most investors would be well advised to buy wisely (that is, buy broad-market ETFs) and hold on for dear life.
But if you can’t? If you’re time horizon isn’t 30+ years? If you don’t have the fortitude to ride markets up and then down, up and then down, ad nauseam? Then maybe you owe it to yourself to explore a simple method that reduces risk and volatility in your portfolio, and lets you sleep soundly at night without worries of market bears or bursting bubbles.
A note from the author.
“The Stock Market Cash Trigger is not magic and it’s not rocket science. It’s a technique hiding in plain sight on the simplest of stock charts.
I didn’t invent it, I just gathered up the puzzle pieces that were there on the floor all along; eliminated those that didn’t fit, put the pieces that did into a structure, and verified results through backtesting.
See if it doesn’t open your eyes like it did mine.” –DAC
