Beating The Market
Note the following:
- The momo crowd has gone manic. The trading frenzy has reached a new high.
- The current prevailing wisdom that the more you trade the more money you make is highly flawed.
- The goal of investors should be to generate the highest risk-adjusted returns.
- Unfortunately, the media and Wall Street have persuaded the less informed investors that the goal is the number of trades they do.
- The chart compares three ETFs from ZYX Global Asset Allocation Portfolio. This portfolio focuses on less trading but still generating high risk-adjusted returns.
- The chart shows that for the period shown, clean energy ETF ICLN has beaten SPY by 26.35%.
- The chart shows that FINX ETF has beaten SPY by 13.03%.
- The chart shows that spinoff ETF CSD has beaten SPY by 8.44%.
- The foregoing illustrates that investors can do very well without much trading.

Protection Bands and What To Do Now?
It is important for investors to look ahead and not in the rearview mirror.
Consider continuing to hold existing positions. Based on individual risk preference, on dips, consider holding 🔒in cash or treasury bills or short-term bond funds or allocated to short-term tactical trades and short to medium-term hedges of 🔒 and short term hedges of 🔒. This is a good way to protect yourself and participate in the upside at the same time.
You can determine your protection bands by adding cash to hedges. The high band of the protection is appropriate for those who are older or conservative. The low band of the protection is appropriate for those who are younger or aggressive. If you do not hedge, total cash level should be more than stated above but significantly less than cash plus hedges.
It is worth reminding that you cannot take advantage of new upcoming opportunities if you are not holding enough cash. When adjusting hedge levels, consider adjusting partial stop quantities for stock positions (non ETF); consider using wider stops on remaining quantities and also allowing more room for high beta stocks. High beta stocks are the ones that move more than the market.
