INDEX TRADING SYSTEM PAST TRADES

Below is the results of a sample portfolio started with $10,000. This portfolio uses our LONG-TERM Market Timing Indicator to determine major shifts in the market from from Bear to Bull settings, or vice versa. The SHORT-TERM Market Timing Indicator is used to determine "when" and "what" to buy in the Bull or Bear environment.

DATE: the date the MTI (Market Timing Indicator) first alerted to a change in the markets. If the MTI says the market was going up, we took a position in TNA (you can use any index ETF). If the alert is because the market is going down, the portfolio uses TZA to monetize the drop in the markets.

TRADE: the ETF traded and the price the ETF was at when announced (prices adjusted for splits/dividends). Also you will see what that trade gained or lost.

PORTFOLIO: running total of the portfolio's balance. On trades where a stop-loss is used, if the stop was triggered, it will be labeled next to the portfolio balance as "triggered".
