    Market Timing for Index "Exchange Traded Funds"
    Market Timing for Active Stock Traders

The same market timing trend indicators that help us accurately time the markets with index and sector funds, are also excellent for market timing "select" index and industry specific Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), as well as carefully selected stocks.

Below are descriptions of the ETF Timer and the Stock Timer.



FibTimer monitors most of the actively traded ETFs, and includes the most widely traded ETFs, such as the QQQQ, SPY, BBH, OIH, SMH, DIA, TTH, UTH, TLT, etc. in the ETF Timer.

The ETF Timer is an "Aggressive" market timing strategy, using both long and short positions.

The ETF Timer is meant to be traded as a portfolio of positions. We recommend trading at least 8 ETFs from different industries. Diversity protects from downside risks, while holding multiple positions creates a very profitable strategy because industry specific ETFs tend to trend much further than most expect. Strong trends equal large profits over time.

The ETF Timer is updated daily after the close. For the record, ETF Timer uses the closing price of the next trading day when changes are made. Subscribers may obtain better entry prices.

The ETF Timer report has detailed "recommended" trading instructions for profitably trading these issues.

Only stocks that tend to trend over long time frames are selected for trading in our Stock Timer strategy. From the entire S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100, only about 30 trending issues that meet our requirements are covered at any one time.

The Stock Timer is an " Aggressive" market timing strategy, using both long and short positions.

Occasionally a new stock will be added or dropped. Stocks are usually covered for long periods of time, and because of their tendency to trend, most positions are held for months at a time. Any stock that is dropped remains on the Trading History page.

The Stock Timer is meant to be traded as a portfolio of positions. We recommend at least 12-15 stocks. Diversity protects from downside risks, while holding multiple positions creates a very profitable strategy because of these specific stocks's tendencies to trend over long time frames. Long trends equal large profits.

The Stock Timer is updated daily after the close. For the record, Stock Timer uses the closing price of the next trading day when changes are made. Subscribers may obtain better entry prices.

The Stock Timer report has detailed "recommended" trading instructions for profitably trading these stocks.
