Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

I created a spreadsheet to be able to see any of the strategies vs the S&P 500, you pick the strategy, the starting year, and how many years and it charts it. It won't display properly on DroidDoc, but you can download the file and play with it on your computer Download the spreadsheet from here, a...

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

Meanwhile, here is the T-Bill TR data monthly for 1939, 1940, and 1941 (I tried to PM it to you but for some reason the PM didn't appear in my outbox or sent messages so I don't know if it got sent or not). https://filebin.net/s6k1cnopgpps7qf7 I'm not sure, but the T-Bill data looks like it's yield...

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

Siamond had Ken French actually calculate monthly total returns and not just annual; this was a few years back (circa 2018ish/2019ish IIRC). Tyler over at Portfoliocharts calculated monthly TRs as well. Please check your PM inbox. Can you point me to the monthly return data in the Simba spreadsheet...

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

Give me a day or two and I'll see what I can dig up; I can probably get the monthly TR data even if I can't get the daily TR data. Monthly is all I use. https://gofile.io/d/vWcOca I've got the monthly US Total Market data, but can only find monthly 13 week T-Bill data back to 1985 and then annual b...

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

3. Has this strategy been backtested to the inception of the Russell indices back in 1979? I'd be interested to see how it would've handled the 1987 crash if nothing else. btw - I just recalled hearing Meb Faber talk about Black Monday, and that if your timing strategy was faster than a 200 day, yo...

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

Hello? Just checking, is anybody here other than modeljc following along here to some degree or another?

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

2. Given that the Russell and Global Navigator switch out to a 2X leveraged ITT ETF during down market periods what would happen in a long-term rising rate environment like 1954-1981? The asset the strategy was supposed to hunker down and be safe in would be losing money in many of the down years (...

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

All strategies for March 2021 had positive results, it would have been great to capture the mid-month highs! USA S-M-L and MAX PAIN has incredible mid-month gains that they gave up, barely seeking out positive months. If you missed the email sent yesterday documenting the strategy changes, don’t for...

     Hi folks, There are several changes to the strategies for April, want to get this out a little before the month is over to give time to take it all in before making any investment changes for April 2021. The goal is to improve the strategies both in terms of strategy components used and th...

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

Looks like the combo got changed. From 40%/60% to 70% Russell and 30% USA. I like that a lot better. We have visited about the levered products and the possible counterparty credit risk. Also using EDV when things turn funny. Might warm to the combo. I will showcase different combinations over time...

Re: 8.6% interest rate in 2021

Mark you are speaking speculation and conjecture, you clearly haven’t looked into this. Its basically a split of revenue they make lending, they give about 80% and keep 20%.

Re: 8.6% interest rate in 2021

And when you say until it doesn’t, do you mean that the high interest rate goes away or do you mean loss of capital?

8.6% interest rate in 2021

Heard about this deal, I get it but you know what they say about if something sounds too good to be true. On the other hand I found no information to sway me against it. BlockFi pays 8.6% on some of the Stablecoins, USD Coin in particular is tied 1:1 and has US Dollars in reserve for all outstanding...
