BEHIND OUR MARKET TIMING INDICATOR
Following the markets drop in the summer 2008, we have put into place a Market
Timing indicator in October 08. This indicator, added on top of our portfolios, helps to reduce volatility
by a big margin.
Check on the following graph how our portfolios
are affected by the addition of our Market Timing Indicator. See how the blue equity curve experiences
a lower volatility.
Note: Whereas the underlying portfolios data have been recorded live, the
indicator signals before October 08 have been simulated. Indicator signals after October 08 have
been recorded live.
We are still in the process of integrating this indicator in our website. In the mean time,
you can get more information by reading the following threads on our forum:
