Over the past week my core measures of market quality, trend, and strength all rose significantly. Market trend and strength moved above zero which results in changes to the core portfolio allocations. Market quality is just barely below zero and will almost certainly go positive next week (even with some consolidation in the market).
Here are the new allocations:
Long / Cash portfolio: 60% long and 40% cash
Long / Short Hedged portfolio: 80% long high beta stocks and 20% short the S&P 500 Index (or use the ETF SH)
Volatility Hedged portfolio: 100% long (since 10/9/15)
As always make your own decisions about your own portfolio allocations based on your personal risk tolerance. Enjoy the weekend everyone!
