  • Modified GMR Signal: EDV 5 comments
    Feb 28, 2014 3:36 PM | about stocks: EDV

    My modified GMR discussed in earlier blogs gave a signal to buy EDV at the close. The previous SSO position for February should closed then as well.

    Last month's SSO trade was an 8.56% gain.

    Good luck!

    Disclosure: I am long EDV.

    Yes, I also calculated EDV to be the winner.
    My buy plan for Monday :


    40% GMR - EDV
    40% Country ETF rotation - EIRL, EWP,EWI, GREK
    20% sector rotation - TAN, XLV

    What selection rules do you follow for the Country ETF rotation and sector rotation strategies? Also appreciate you sharing the reasoning behind the 40/40/20 split into what essentially is the same class of asset - Equities (except for the GMR for this month)..

    Any chance you can post the numbers for each ETF whenever you have time? I'm trying to create my own spreadsheet and want to see if my numbers match yours. Thanks for all your work. Interesting stuff. I haven't done this much math in years.

    I too am trying to recreate your spreadsheet. I got an SSO signal at the end of Feb... so obviously I'm wrapped around the axle. Thank you!
