approach is essentially momentum-based (with funds rather than stocks), as follows: “Upgrading involves measuring near-term performance of mutual funds (twelve months and less) and comparing them to returns of other funds with similar risk. We invest in funds with the best recent returns, and hold them as long as they continue to outperform. When a fund drops in our ranks, we ‘Upgrade’ to the new market leaders.” Using results of relevant research, the performance data presented by NoLoad FundX and actual performance data for the FUNDX mutual fund, we conclude that: There is ...

Mutual Funds- Are They Worth Your While? Part Two
In part one of this series, I spoke about some of the pros and cons of mutual funds. I let you know that there are a number of expenses that come with investing in a mutual fund, including the high price of management fees and brokerage fees that come with trading frequently. But, the fund manager is bound by a responsibility to find the best deals on commission for you that she or he can. Also, the expertise of a fund manager can be quite helpful for beginners when they start to invest. Also, a number of mutual funds offer more than one class of shares. The way it works is like this: every class invests in the same pool of ... market research, surveys and trends

We have not written much about momentum investing, which is in its simplest form trend following.  Take a given index such as the S&P 500 and track it over time.  When it begins moving up, buy in.  When it begins falling, sell. George Soros and Reflexivity Perhaps the most famous proponent of momentum investing or trend-following investing is George Soros.  In his book, The Alchemy of Finance (Wiley Investment Classics), Soros wrote that markets are inherently reflexive. That is, buying begets more buying until a peak is reached and then selling begets more selling until a bottom is reached. A market that is hot (say oil in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Bending On The Downside
hough the benchmark bombay stock exchange Sensitive Index (Sensex) touched the psychological 18000 mark twice this month (on 12 July and 14 July), it failed to keep momentum above that number, and closed below that level at the end of the trading session. Does the stockmarket have enough steam to cross that level and reach higher ground in the coming weeks? Surprisingly, there are more bears in the market than bulls who support that view. Stockmarket analysts believe that the markets will not get enough support from the domestic economy to sustain an upside rally. Moreover, they say, the behaviour of foreign ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

A lot of people have tried putting together surveys to get at a customer's risk tolerance. Since you're doing it on your own you might try something like this: At 1% return, I would accept XX% standard deviation. At 2% return, I would accept XX% standard deviation. ... At 25% return, I would accept XX% standard deviation. (another way to ask the question is a 50% standard deviation I would demand XX% return) The resulting points should represent your risk tolerance function fairly well. Then draw your SML and you should be good. That said the standard portfolio theory model isn't working particularly well right ...

I am researching historical practices of mutual fund market timing for the period prior to September 2003. This is an investment approach that involves rapidly switching funds between an equity mutual fund and a money market mutual fund. Since September of 2003 there has been an industry wide crack down on the practice of mutual fund market timing and a number of mutual funds have paid large settlements to the SEC to settle charges that they allowed market timing that was not in the best interest of mutual fund shareholders. The particular angle that I am researching is the extent to which mutual fund market timing was an ...
