And sometimes I have to, since it’s not available in mobile version of their app. I wrote them asking to introduce it on mobile, too. If anyone could ask them the same, it could be helpful. #Investing #Trading

FYI: Reply To: Strategy: Global Market Rotation Strategy Enhanced: Hi Patrick, some months ago I also wondered and did some quick tests, sadly do not have the analysis and charts anymore, will try to redo later. My findings then were basically two, here just as notes w/o data support: – The increasing coordination among central banks to steer monetary easing and (intended) tightening has caused a lot of “macro-events”, which make it hard to find long-lasting trends in broad global equities as employed by the GMRS. See especially 2015 where the strategy basically hopped from one ETF into another, as trends were “broken”. Same happened to a lot of other momentum based strategies out there. – Correlation between broad global equities is further increasing, this has already been a fact in down-turns (GFC, EU, China, etc), but I observed it´s also more and more increasing in calm times. Again, this is hitting most GMRS due to the involved broad ETF, while in more specific industry or country ETF there are still trends and low correlations. What to do? Honestly think we still need to wait. 2017 so far has been too strong in broad indices (everything going up) as to be able to draw conclusions from the good performance. Once we see a bit more volatility in markets we should see how trends and correlations behave. For the time being GMRS is still a very solid diversifier in a broad portfolio, you can see how it complements other strategies in the Portfolio Builder. #Investing #Trading

FYI: Reply To: Strategy: Gold Currency Strategy: Alex, So it tuns out that the currency ETF’s you use in this strategy are not allowed in my Fidelity Brokerage Link account. They were, however, allowed in my normal IRA..(I think I had to sign an “aggressive investor status form” a while back that allows it….Regardless, I am in with CROC…the spread was only .06 when I made the trade….I put it right in the middle and it filled quickly…. (sidenote: On Friday, CROC had its highest Volume in 4+ years with 64,600) Mark Alexander Horn wrote: Hi Mark, I hear you and this is really a pain in the neck. It´s just that using Gold and FX is such a nice hedge, but indeed hard to trade in deferred accounts. We also keep looking for alternatives, please drop us a line if you find something at your end. #Investing #Trading

FYI: Reply To: Consolidated Signals: I am considering trying out M1 Finance to manage a LI portfolio. They charge 0.15% for accounts over $100k and NO transaction fee. You create a portfolio, called a pie, and then assign percentages to each slice. Each slice can be another pie, such as an LI strategy, or individual security. Then you just update the holdings in each pie (strategy) and click rebalance. My only concern is that they use market orders so there could be significant slippage on some of the lower volume ETFs. They claim to mitigate slippage by splitting orders into smaller chunks. #Investing #Trading
