Yet I applied seasonal timing to it and was out of it from May to October last year. My TTM return is .6%. Where's the issue?
Is it the screen? Or is it my timing method / application?
The issue is the timing method you used.
Timing should be based on price or a related derivative (NH-NL, etc.), not the calendar.
The behavior of prices means something. The position of Earth in its orbit around the sun doesn't.
