Stock Market Cash Trigger - Learn a Simple Technique That Tells You When To Go To Cash
"After reading The 12% Solution, I was interested to keep learning additional techniques. Both books are written in an easy to understand language. Also, he has the courage to back test (and share the results of) these strategies. He tells you what works and what doesn’t. No wall-street hype. This book has more advanced concepts than the first book (12% Solution). Regardless, I found both valuable and interesting."

"Having been a swing trader for the past 10 years, I was looking for a more laid back system for retirement. I have researched several systems and, although many are similar to the one described, this author has an intriguing approach for protection during market downturns. Is it foolproof? No. But a wise choice of diversified ETFs as the core investment will serve to make a solid base for the approach presented."

Stock Market Crashes
Is a market crash coming? We all know the answer to that. Just a matter of when. Get ahead of the inevitable - start protecting your investments today.
You were happy-go-lucky in 2007, holding a boatload of high-beta stocks, and your portfolio was cut in half the next year. You sold at a loss and swore off the market, only to miss a 9-year bull run.
You've tried to time major market corrections with your gut instincts, moving in and out of stocks accordingly. And yet, you consistently underperform the S&P 500.
You're approaching retirement and apprehensive of the current market. So you've sold everything and you're holding cash. And each month, you watch the market climb higher -- without you.
You’re ready for a clear investment strategy that will beat buy-and-hold investing, while at the same time reduce portfolio risk.
Stock Market Cash Trigger is a mechanical timing model that takes emotion out of the mix. It automates decision making, and requires no special tools or software. Other timing models with proven track records are often built around proprietary algorithms and offered up as subscription alerts to the tune of $50, $75, $100 or more per month.
All you need here is a computer, the chart page that comes bundled with your online brokerage account, and 5 minutes of your time a month.
If you invest in stocks or ETFs, you can dramatically improve your returns.
More than just protection, this model will show you how to profit from corrections, crashes and bears.
-- Like Microsoft? If you had held it during 2008, you would have been down -44%. Had you employed the Stock Market Cash Trigger, you would have been up +27% that year.
-- Like Exxon? From 2000 to 2017, you could have doubled your total return vs. buy-and-hold.
-- Prefer an ETF? Buying and holding QQQ for the past 17 years would have gotten you a +91% total return. Trading QQQ based on the Stock Market Cash Trigger would have generated +1,050%.
Yes, these are backtested returns, and there's no shortage of critics of backtesting. For that matter, there's no shortage of critics of mechanical trading systems, either. For the record, most investors would be well advised to buy wisely (that is, buy broad-market ETFs) and hold on for dear life.
But if you can't? If you're time horizon isn't 30+ years? If you don't have the fortitude to ride markets up and then down, up and then down, ad nauseam? Then maybe you owe it to yourself to explore a simple method that reduces risk and volatility in your portfolio, and lets you sleep soundly at night without worries of market bears or bursting bubbles.
A note from the author.
"The Stock Market Cash Trigger is not magic and it's not rocket science. It's a technique hiding in plain sight on the simplest of stock charts. I didn't invent it, I just gathered up the puzzle pieces that were there on the floor all along; eliminated those that didn't fit, put the pieces that did into a structure, and verified results through backtesting.
See if it doesn't open your eyes like it did mine." --DAC
