VBMFX is a mutual fund that tracks the Barclay's Capital U.S. Aggregate Float Adjusted Index, meaning, the fund tracks interest-rates. If a price chart is constructed, and if moving averages are applied, it’s easy to see when the fund should have been bought or sold. http://finance.yahoo.com/echarts?s=VBMFX+Interactive#symbol=... When the MAVs ‘stack’ like a rainbow, you want to be in or out depending on whether ‘Price’ is above or below the ‘rainbow’. When the MAVs ‘braid’, you can continue to hold (in which case you’ll continue to make the coupon, but no cap-gains), or you should stand aside, because you can’t know that prices won’t roll over on you.

Obviously, one can’t short VBMFX. But timing-signals can be set up to determine a favored market-side. If the time-price series for VBMFX is downloaded from Yahoo Finance in its weekly version and dumped into a spreadsheet, then conditional rules can be applied:

=IF (AND (Fastest MAV > Medium MAV, Medium MAV > Slowest MAV), “Long”, “No action”)
=IF (AND (Fastest MAV < Medium MAV, Medium MAV < Slowest MAV), “Short”, “No action”)

Obviously, the rules can be combined into a single rule. But debugging is easier if things aren’t mashed together. Rules Translation: If the moving averages are rising and stacked, then prices are going up in an orderly, persistent manner. If the rainbow is reversed, then prices are going down in an orderly, persistent manner. Otherwise, prices are ‘choppy”, and it's hard to tell what is best to do.

The relevant parts of the data set are presented below. What I find striking is how persistent the trends are and how few buying/selling decisions a 'Weekend Warrior' (aka, an investor with long-term intentions who does his or her analysis on weekends only) would have had to have made over the course of a dozen years to keep her or himself on the right side of prices. I haven’t yet run the P/L for this system. But I suspect it kicks the butt of Buy-and Hope up and down the hall by a factor of 3x or better results and with far less risk.
