Unique swing trading signals and stock market commentary.
J, regarding the "all-in" money management:Since your signals are derived from SPX numbers, wouldn't it make sense for those seeking less leverage to trade SPY instead of IWM?
Excellent question. The answer is a resounding No. The system is specifically designed to trade small caps. You could trade SPY, but I guarantee IWM will outperform consistently. Let's take a quick look at just this month using the signals/dates to the left. Trading TNA (100% position) results in a +29.09% gain this month. Trading IWM 100% results in +9.02%Trading SPY 100% results in a relatively poor +2.54%. You can see there is no contest. This is not an anomaly. It's like this every month. It simply doesn't make sense to trade SPY.Thanks!!
I realize I looked at an extremely profitable month. During poor months, SPY vs IWM performance is a coin flip. So it makes sense to trade IWM to cash in when times are good.
