The Bull & Bear Tracker was also less risky than S&P 500 since it was 100% invested for only two days during the first week of December.

From April 9, 2018, when the first signal was published, through November 30, 2019, the Bull & Bear Tracker produced a cumulative return of 59.4% vs. 19.8% for the S&P 500. As I discussed last week, since the Bull & Bear Tracker’s signals were tweaked in June 2019, its average return per month has been 5.5%.

The Bull & Bear Tracker has steadily outperformed the S&P 500 since the first signal was published because its signals enable an investor to profit not only from upward moves in the market but also from corrections and crashes. The Bull & Bear Tracker monitors the global markets 24 hours per day to predict the direction of the S&P 500, the world’s most liquid and largest stock market index. When the Bull & Bear Tracker reads that the S&P 500 is headed higher, its signal is green. When the market is headed lower, its signal is red. The Bull & Bear Tracker is always in the market with either a green or red signal.

The Bull & Bear Tracker’s signals are utilized to trade exchange traded funds (ETFs) which mimic the performance of the S&P 500. A long ETF is utilized when the signal is green, while a short or inverse ETF is utilized when the signal is red. For example, when the S&P 500 advances by 10% while under a green signal, the long ETF increases by 10%. Conversely, should the S&P 500 decline by 10% while a red signal is in effect, the inverse or short ETF would increase by 10%.
