Our “Big Picture” investment system tells you when to BUY and when to SELL.   AlphaDow is a “binary wave” system composed of five market timing indicators.  We use it as a “regime filter” — or a measure of whether the “tide” of the market is going up or going down.  When five systems give a BUY signal (the cyan histogram will touch the upper green BUY line) it is time to BUY stocks.  When three or more systems give a SELL signal (the purple histogram touches the lower red line) go to the safety of cash or money market funds.

Much thought and research has gone into each of the systems and their parameters.  Each has been rigorously back-tested and thoroughly examined for effectiveness.   This simple summary can be used to keep you out of most of the danger associated with the stock market.  Click on image to enlarge.

What to Buy:

The simplest way to participate in the market is with an ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) that tracks the overall market. Each brokerage firm or bank will have an index fund that tracks the index in your country.  Some of the most popular trade on the U.S. exchanges under the ticker SPY, QQQ and DIA.  For small cap growth you can use IWN.  In Canada the oldest ETF in the world is the XIU on the TSX.
