Dr K Market Direction Model
The latest Market Direction Model Report is dated 5 days ago, is this because there has been no change in the signal?

Q: I see that the latest Market Direction Model Report is dated 5 days ago. Is this because there has been no change in the signal since then and no new report has been issued, or do you only put out the reports a few days a week?

In this case, should I not take the signal (short) from 5 days ago? Maybe it's late at this point?


A: The Market Direction Model report was sent out 5 days ago. This means the signal switched to sell on that date. This signal stands until the model switches signals. The model switches on average about 12 to 20 times per year.

You could take the signal now, but be aware that the greater the price you pay, the greater your risk of loss. For example, if you bought an inverse 1x ETF such as PSQ 3% late (which would be roughly 9% late if you bought an inverse 3x ETF such as TYP), then your losses would be 3% (or 9%) greater if the signal proves to be false. There is a fail-safe built into each signal, so if the market goes against it by usually less than a few percent on the NASDAQ Composite, then the model will switch to neutral.
