I featured a custom portfolio at the beginning of July, titled 'Scott's Alternative'. Below is the update for December if you were to base buy / sell decisions on the 200 day moving average at the end of November. All of the ETFs are above their 200 day SMA except for LSC.

The portfolio is updated once per month.
