Timing the market is not wise:

MAY30But if you must try – we use a 26-Week Price Channel on the TSX as replicated by the S&P/TSX60 iShares ETF (XIU). Investors should remain fully invested during a “buy” and then go to a 10 to 15% cash position during a “sell” signal.

 

A 26-Week Price Channel (6-month) is a best fit for the volatile TSX60 index.

 

The last signal on the TSX60 was a BUY on May 27, 2016 at 20.82 on the index. On our chart – a weekly on the XIU we have noted the top and bottom price channels. Note also the mid line (dashed) which is an early warning – currently about the same number as the May 26 close on the XIU.

 

What ever happened to “Sell In May?” – in any event enjoy but your on your own with this call.

 

By the way – a 30-week Price Channel seems to work better for the S&P500.
