There is one trade this month – US Real Estate (IYR) has regained upward momentum. Pro-Folio USA will be invested in commodities, global stocks, US Real Estate, and US stocks for the month of March.
The Pro-Folio USA model evaluates its holdings on a monthly basis. There is one (1) trade this month. As of the last trading day of February (28th), we have the following trade signals:
For existing investors:
You should have spent the month of February invested equally in the above 3 holdings marked HOLD or SELL. Now, take 1/2 of your existing cash of 1/5 of your portfolio value, and invest it in IYR.
For new investors:
If you are new to Pro-Folio USA this month, you should divide your portfolio into 5 equal parts, and invest one of those parts in each of the securities shown above, marked as “HOLD” or “BUY.” Because you didn’t invest in the “HOLD” components of the model at the time when the buy signal first turned positive, your return on these initial trades may not be reflective of the model’s typical expected returns.
The markets think that President Trump is going to push the US deficit and outstanding debt significantly higher. So, consistent with increased supply of a product, the price has gone down. In other words, US government bonds are below threshold, and may continue that way for some time to come.
Fortunately for us, the Pro-Folio USA model has never lost more than than 1% of portfolio value: that was 2008, the worst year in recent memory and the only year on record that Pro-Folio USA lost value. Keep in mind, the long term average growth of the model is north of 8% per year. We can continue to follow the model with confidence that our assets will be protected.
