IMPORTANT NOTE: I use a 10 month moving average, NOT 200
days or any other permutation. Also, it is based on closing price only
and NOT dividend adjusted. CAVEAT EMPTOR.

The 5 assets are: international equities (IEFA),
commodities (GSG), US Treasuries (IEF), US equities (IVV), and
US REITS (IYR). Your portfolio is divided equally among the 5 assets,
20% each. The decision to move in or out is based on a 10 month
look back monthly SMA.

For those wishing to expand, I added IEMG (emerging markets),
IGOV (foreign treasuries), EMB (emerging market treasuries),
and IFGL (foreign REITS)
