Cover Your Assets - Reducing Portfolio Drawdowns
After experiencing another market downturn during the first half of 2022, the market seemed to be starting to recover during July but lost its momentum around the middle of August and sunk back down before heading up again in the past week or so.
The events and circumstances which have been creating uncertainty and market turbulence do not seem to be dissipating.
The Optimum Mix fell substantially during the first few months of 2022 as it continued to invest in high-momentum large cap stocks and leveraged equity ETFs until those losses were slowed by phasing into cash over a couple of months as indicated by the algorithms.
As the market seemed to be recovering and then lost momentum, the algorithms have been phasing into and out of large cap stocks and leveraged equity ETFs.

This chart compares the loss in value of $10,000 invested in the S&P 500 from January 5, 2022, through September 12, 2022, with the loss in value of $10,000 invested using the Optimum Mix, TQQQ, and FNGU during that same period.
As mentioned previously, the strategic takeaway for this period and other speed bumps, corrections, and bear markets is to “cover your assets.”
The time to develop an action plan for the inevitable temporary setbacks is before they begin.
Following the rules of a backtested investing algorithm should help enable an investor to be dispassionate, systematic, and evidence-driven--and to reduce portfolio drawdowns during bear markets like the one we've been in since January.
Severe bear markets and rare black swan events with rapid substantial declines can be mitigated to some degree by systems which incorporate algorithms with manual stop loss orders and black swan indicators that indicate when to exchange stocks and leveraged equity ETFs for cash or leveraged bond ETFs.
Those algorithms also need to provide clear calls to action when it is time to switch back into stocks and leveraged equity ETFs.

THE SELL OFF IS DONE ITS TIME TO BUY!
I believe after looking the RSI that there is no selling energy and the market is going to make a positive correction. I put calls on $TQQQ and Puts on $SQQQ I am planning on the reversal. Let me know your thoughts?

Will be fun to see if this plays out.

So your bet is that the ratio of higher closes compared to overall closes is positive for the recent timeframe, and that indicates a shift in momentum in a positive direction?

I might need more background on the RSI 🤓

Either way— always interested in calls like this.

Investing Uncertainty and Volatility - This Too Shall Pass
We have been experiencing another market downturn caused by events and circumstances which have created uncertainty and turbulence for several months.
The Optimum Mix fell substantially during the first few months of 2022 as it continued to invest in high-momentum large cap stocks and leveraged equity ETFs until it slowed those losses in June by switching a portion of the portfolio from those leveraged equity ETFs to cash as indicated by the algorithms.

This chart compares the loss in value of $10,000 invested in the S&P 500 from January 4, 2022, through August 24, 2022, with the loss in value of $10,000 invested using the Optimum Mix during that same period.
As mentioned previously, the strategic takeaway for this period and other speed bumps, corrections, and bear markets is to “cover your assets.”
The time to develop an action plan for the inevitable temporary setbacks is before they happen.
Using an investing algorithm should enable an investor to be dispassionate, systematic, and evidence-driven.
Severe bear markets and rare black swan events with rapid substantial declines can be mitigated to some degree by systems which incorporate algorithms with manual stop loss orders and black swan indicators that indicate when to exchange stocks and leveraged equity ETFs for cash or leveraged bond ETFs.
Those algorithms also need to provide clear calls to action when it is time to switch back into stocks and leveraged equity ETFs.
Developing appropriate expectations and trust in an algorithm will enable an investor to take the necessary actions at the necessary times.
A backtested investing algorithm should help enable an investor to be dispassionate, systematic, and evidence-driven in markets like the one we are in now.
Market corrections and bear markets have always been followed by recoveries and bull markets.
The time to develop an action plan for the inevitable temporary setbacks and the inevitable recoveries is before they begin.
We must learn from the past to prepare for the future.

Stock Market Recoveries Are Rarely Obvious Until Months Later
Substantial market recoveries have always followed substantial declines during the relatively short history of modern stock investing (the New York Stock Exchange was established in 1792 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average was created in 1896).
One of those substantial recoveries followed the panic caused by the initial phase of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020.
Relatively quick action by banking authorities and governments around the world eventually led to countermeasures and economic stimuli which caused the market panic to subside in March 2020 and spurred a quick recovery which continued through 2021.
Many companies found themselves flush with cash and in position to thrive during the recovery.

This chart compares the growth of $10,000 invested in the S&P 500 from March 24, 2020, through January 4, 2022, with the growth of $10,000 invested using the Optimum Mix during that same period.
The market as represented by the S&P 500 rose 104.82% during that period but the Optimum Mix rose 662.95% by continuing to invest in high-momentum large cap stocks and leveraged equity ETFs.
The market has tended to go up over time for the past few decades with only temporary setbacks so the optimum strategy has been to be in the market as much as possible (unless it seems likely to decline) and to focus on the Optimum Mix of assets.
Instead of trying to “buy low and sell high” investors should think “buy often and cover your assets” using algorithms with manual stop loss orders and black swan indicators so that when a bear market or bull market finally ends (and they all end eventually) the algorithms cause the necessary actions to be indicated and taken.
Market corrections and bear markets have always been followed by recoveries and bull markets.
The time to develop an action plan for the inevitable temporary setbacks and the inevitable recoveries is before they begin.
We must learn from the past to prepare for the future.
