Before You Trade
Every investor and trader has his/her own tolerance for risk and expectations for reward. Selecting a strategy that is best for you should be done with the advice of a skilled investment professional that understands your personal financial situation, your investment goals and objectives, and your personal timelines. This site does not offer investment advice based upon your personal financial situation and cannot guide you as to which strategy is best for you. Our Model ignores the adverse tax consequences associated with short-term capital gains. Tax implications are a critical component of any investment strategy. Therefore, depending on the strategy you choose to implement, it is possible that any trading activity could result in a taxable event and result in lower investment return.
What is sector rotation?
Sector rotation is an investment strategy involving the movement of money from one industry sector to another in an attempt to beat the market. To harness the potential of sector investing, you need to invest in the right sector funds at the right time. Equally important, you need to avoid sectors funds that end up delivering poor performance.
The basic idea behind a sector rotation is that the economy operates according to cycles and some sectors will be up at certain times and down at others. Investors using this approach must identify the boom and bust cycles in the sector they plan to invest in. Then, during the down periods, buy and then turn around and sell when the prices are at their peak right as the boom is ending. This type of sector rotation strategy can be quite complex and time consuming.
Our Sector Rotation Strategy
Our proprietary sector rotation strategy focuses on the momentum behind the various sectors and allocates into the top momentum sectors on a quarterly basis. A more diversified investment approach is usually safer, and this is why we focus on top five sectors. Depending on our momentum model their will be situation when less than five sectors will be held. When there are not five positive momentum sectors to hold for a quarter, then the other allocations are placed in cash.
How to use our Sector Rotation Strategy
At the end of every quarter our subscribers will receive an email which will identify the top sectors for the next following quarter. A subscriber will allocated 20% into each of the top sectors, and if there is not a total of five to allocate into, then those allocations will be held in a cash position until the next quarter allocation. There are many investment choices to choose from, and it is up to the subscriber to pick which ones they prefer to use.
