SPY Value Averaging Allocations (12/31/2020)
Seeking Alpha Analyst Since 2012
I am a conservative individual investor nearing retirement (within the next 5 years). My portfolio is split between a traditional and an Roth IRA. I manage both by systematically scaling in and out of the market depending on whether the market is overbought or oversold in the short term, and uptrending or downtrending in the long term.
- Should I be in the stock market? YES.
- Confidence? FULL.
- Allocations? 0%.
No changes from last week. SPY has traded basically sideways again this week, which is giving the major moving averages a chance to catch up slightly, but SPY is still too extended to trigger any new purchases. It will take either a longer consolidation period or a pullback (or some combination of the two) to trigger any buying in my system.
As previously mentioned, the SPY allocation percentage above applies to my stock allocation, not my whole portfolio. So, since I am targeting 60/40, I am 60% cash and 40% bonds.
Even though today is Thursday, it is the close of this week (and the year), since tomorrow is New Years Day and the markets will be closed. See you next week, and Happy New Year!
