We recommend to subscribe to our free newsletter in order to receive the current bond market risk plus all stock and bond trading system signals of our market timing models.

  • The next charts are showing hypothetical trading results from back testing. The back testing period started on 14th of April 1961. These results have certain limitations: Due to the fact that all the trades included in this back testing have not actually been executed in realtime, actual results may be different, under or over compensated for results. Generally hypothetical trading performance results are prepared with the benefit of hindsight.
  • These hypothetical returns are not compounded. That means that this timing strategy does not reinvest profits. Consequently the hypothetical total return would obviously be far larger if the returns were compounded or even by utilizing leverage.
  • No slippage, commissions and dividends were used.
