The Bull & Bear Tracker is an excellent vehicle for hedging against market crashes, since it produces its greatest returns when the S&P 500 and Dow Jones indices are the most volatile. In 2018, the Bull & Bear Tracker’s first signals produced gains of 7.96% and 9.84% during two of the S&P 500’s worst 25 percentage decline days from 2009 to 2020.

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%.
