How to use SM Timing
First Step: Choose a Timing Signal (or Signals)SM Timing provides analysis of the market by producing several different signals. To start, look at the Signal Dashboard and determine which signal is best suited to your investment style and portfolio.
In your account section, you can subscribe to recieve alerts for that signal. When there is a change for the signal, you will receive a signal alert which allows you to determine whether you want to make a trade. Most often, users select one signal to follow and make trades based on signal alerts from that one signal. However, you are given alerts and data for all signals so you can change signals at any time.
Next Step: Follow a Timing Signal (or Signals)The SMS Timing signals are based on trading with the major stock indexes, particular either the NDX 100 index or the VIX index. There are three options:
LONG - Predicting the market index will go up
SHORT - Predicting the market index will go down
EVEN - This usually is caused by too much noise to create a significant recommendation, leaning towards CASH or some other investment medium.
Here is an example from the Dashboard:
|Date||Signal Name||Yesterday's Signal||Current Signal|
|2015-03-24 15:57:03||SMS Black||SHORT||LONG|
The "Current Signal" references the signal to be used before end of the market. "Yesterday's Signal" refers to the signal given yesterday as a point of reference.
Ready to Trade: Investment OptionsThere are many index-based funds availiable in the market. SM Timing takes no preference or opionion on which one, as you should consult financial and tax professionals for the one that is most beneficial to you.
One option is to choose to invest in the following stocks that mirror the index's performance: Rydex funds (RYVYX and RYVNX), Powershares (QQQ), and leveraged Powershares Ultra (QLD and QID).
Volatility stocks like XIV,SVXY, VXX, and UVXY can be used for the VIX index.
How to Trade with SMS SignalsSignal alerts are intended to be traded before the end of the market. The timing matters because the market doesn't 'start' where it 'ended' the day before. With that said, you can also make gains by trading soley during trading hours.
Finding BalanceWhen investing it is always important to have balance and diversified portfolio. Although we believe in SM Timing, it should be part of a balanced investment portfolio constructed by you and trusted financial advisors.
