Blend of top 3 screens working recently based on RS1m & 3M (13 wk). Usually, it's just MicroMo, PIH_cso_safe and some other hot style screen.
YEY. Always, forever.
Most of the rest of the screens are useless. Literally. As RayVT said - nothing spells "Fun" like losing 25% of your money in a screen in one month. It happens all. the. time.
Driven by bear catchers. BCs on, out of the market. No questions asked.
And asset allocations - ETFs - driven by 33 week moving averages (cash/long) per asset class (foreign developed, emerging mkt, commodity, bonds, real estate, foreign real estate, large cap, small cap.)
And summer seasonal. Sell in May and go away.
I continue to use a few screens because despite all evidence to the contrary I want an MI screen approach to outperform, and the 2x/3x leveraged ETF game is a dangerous one to play when one has an extremely demanding 50 hour a week day job.
