TOPIC
The Rules Rule!  (Rules-Based ETF Rotation Strategies that Beat the Market)
Emotions are an investor’s worst enemy, causing them to buy at the top, sell at the bottom, and play “whack a mole” in between. However, history shows that by embracing a rules-based investment approach, one can extract their emotions from the investment process, improve performance, and reduce volatility.

Sam Stovall will discuss market-beating sector-rotation strategies that leverage seasonality, momentum and correlation. For instance, “Sell in May and Go Away” is more than an old Wall Street axiom that reminds investors of summertime softness. It also shows that rotating among sectors, rather than retreating from stocks entirely, would have beaten the market by more than 500 basis points per year. Come hear Sam talk about whether investors should “let their winners ride” by investing in last year’s top performing S&P 500 sub-industries or “buy low and sell high” by constructing a portfolio of last year’s worst performing groups. Finally, he will show us that pairing tech – the best performing sector over the past 20 years – with a less volatile group not only substantially reduced volatility but also improved results.

REGISTRATION
You must register before 2:00PM on 10/22/2019 to get through Security in the Lobby.

Webcast: "Efficient Portfolios Based on Technical Analysis Principles" with Tom Hardin, CMT, CFP and Brandon Bischof, CMT

The efficient portfolio is the one that has the highest return vs. risk (volatility) taken. The most efficient portfolio is a moving target because prices, correlations and volatility are dynamic. We will introduce how an efficient portfolio can be constructed and maintained through the use of technical analysis principles.

Using a Top/Down Intermarket Approach To Buy Stocks
JC will walk you through his top/down intermarket approach to find stocks showing momentum and relative strength. This will increase the probabilities of success and help you identify asymmetrical risk vs reward opportunities skewed in your favor. The presentation will begin with a global macro review, followed by a look at the intermarket complex and then will move more towards the sector and individual stock level.

We’ve updated our analysis & examples with these cost savings and will re-visit these findings. Carl will share from his 20+ years of Options Trading experience methods of using Technical Analysis and common chart patterns to identify an ‘edge’, then matching that opportunity with an appropriate Options strategy. This presentation is not an introduction to Options but will focus on the effective application of Options Trading. Having a basic understanding of Options will help a great deal with following this brief yet information packed presentation.
