For the month of August, the Bull & Bear Tracker’s published signals produced a gain of 11.27% for aggressive traders who traded the Direxion Daily S&P 500 Bull [ (SPXL)] and Bear [ (SPXS)] 3X (triple leveraged) ETFs. The gain for conservative traders trading the unleveraged ETFs [ (SPY),  (SH)] was 3.75%. This compared to a decline of 1.7% for the S&P 500 for August 2019.

The percentage of successful published signals for August was 60% for both the red and green signals. This compares to 57% for both the red and green signals for the January 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019, 18-month period.

The Bull & Bear Tracker’s accuracy is not likely to get above 60%. The algorithm was designed to capitalize on the S&P 500’s major advancing and declining trend changes. For this reason, traders should be prepared to take small losses and make no attempts to cherry pick the signals.

Since inception the Bull & Bear Tracker’s average signal has had a duration of four days. The table below depicts the Bull & Bear Tracker’s back tested signals' outperformance vs. the S&P 500 for all traditional investing time horizons during the 18 months ended June 30, 2019.
