A user commented on ETF Sector Rotation post about a simple idea for trading the sector ETFs, which I can’t believe I have never tried.

If the Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLY, XLP, XLF, XLE, XLV, XLI, XLB, XLK, XLU) is above its 200-day moving average for the last 5 days, then buy 10% of that ETF.

It really doesn’t require rocket science to do alright in the markets. Now Lord knows it’s pretty easy to get wrapped up in “crunching numbers” (“Hi, my name is Jay”), but sometimes simple strategies can do reasonably well.

The CCAR* Circus came to town this week as America’s Too Big To Fail institutions made their annual announcement about how much their regulator was going to allow them to spend on the return of capital to shareholders. In fact, the announced share buybacks that came out on Wednesday made it the biggest one-day jubilee in history, based on a data set that goes back three decades.

The Highly Irrelevant 50-Day Moving Average [0.06]

But they were talking about a highly irrelevant indicator. I also believe that anyone talking about price crossing below the 50-day moving average as an important event really underestimates the intelligence of the audience.

One study from the Quantifinder that triggered last has some potential intermediate-term implications, and it is fairly interesting, so I figured I would share it. This study looked at the SPX closing price in relation to its 50-day Bollinger Bands, and the fact that we are now extended upwards.

Thursday after Memorial Day has been a day that has exhibited a bullish bias for many years.

Single-day seasonality can certainly be overrun by other forces, but the Thursday after Memorial Day has been a good one for many years, and that may be something that traders want to consider today.

One compelling study that triggered tonight suggested the recent persistent upmove is unlikely to abruptly end. It considers what happens after SPX moves up at least 5 days in a row to a 50-day high, and then pulls back.

Our MR1 mean-reversion strategy shows an annualized return in excess of 20% at -34% drawdown since 2015, which is reasonable for a speculative asset of this kind.

We are using the MR1 strategy to confirm mean-reversion, not for trading.

There are many ways to use the MACD indicator developed long ago by Gerald Apel.

The MACD indicator uses exponential moving averages to identify the underlying trend for a given security and is also used by many traders to identify divergences which may signal an impending change of trend.

The SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) had a blockbuster day Wednesday, seeing inflows of $8.2 billion in one day.

Washington (Reuters) – The U.S. Labor Department has taken a first step toward possible derailment or dilution of its controversial rule on retirement advice as it begins to re-examine it at the directive of President Donald Trump, according to a notice made public on Wednesday.

The department proposed a 60-day delay of the fiduciary rule, which requires retirement advisers to put the interests of clients ahead of their own.
