Changes to the Strategic Growth Model, continued
This chart shows the Strategic Growth Model portfolio returns for each of the Thrust / Trend Model (TTM) signal periods since the model's inception in 2003, including the four interim losses that exceed -4%. It's an interesting visualization of the data shown in the earlier table.
This picture clearly shows the benefits of putting 100% of funds to work in the best stocks at the right time, and avoiding stocks all together when it's NOT the right time.
It also clearly shows that the model portfolio's biggest interim losses tend to come when market's up trend has been extended for several weeks beyond a fresh BUY signal.
