A Technique for Making Money Using SPY, GLD, USO, and FXE, Regardless of the Economy

As some of you know and have seen from my posts, I have been using INO's Trade Triangle tool and they have been spot on. INO has a new educational video on how to create a 'perfect portfolio' which is meant to work for any market conditions, and uses the same tool. The portfolio is based on 4 common ETFs: SPY (S&P500), USO (oil ETF), GLD (gold ETF) and FXE (Euro) and it's meant for a value of $10k or $1M.

The video shows how the tool works and what happened with all 4 ETFs since 2006/2007. The strategy is extremely simple and based only on the Monthly triangle alerts. A nice thing is that you can backtest on any stock for any time period, which is something I am doing right now.

Here's their promotional text:

"There is a saying which has been attributed to a fictional Chinese storyteller named Kai Lung and it goes like this, “May you live in interesting times”.

With China holding the largest share of US debt, inflation just around the corner, and no light at the end of the tunnel for the unemployed - these are interesting times. Is there such a thing as a perfect portfolio? Maybe or maybe not, but there are certain times, and this is one those times, that it is practically a no brainer in how to make money in the market. That is why we call this approach “The Perfect Portfolio”. It doesn’t matter if you have $10,000 or $10,000,000. It’s all percentages and this approach has averaged 6% a month over the last 42 months in some of the toughest economic time on record.

I have scoped out several markets that I think are going to offer excellent opportunities, no matter what happens to the economy. Yes, you heard me right. No matter what happens to the economy, I believe that this “Perfect Portfolio” will work for you in the next 36 months whether you have 10,000 or 10,000,000 million dollars. In this video I show you exactly the number of trades you would’ve made with the “Perfect Portfolio”. We back tested the portfolio using our “Trade Triangle” technology for 42 months through some of the toughest, most difficult markets the world has ever seen. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the results of these two portfolios.

I'm sure you've done your DD and that you're much better at this than I am. Yet this still sounds too good to be true. Have you found anything negative about the trading triangle?

I haven't taken the free trial yet so I don't know anything about the tool aside from the few posts you've written about it.

Not that I'm considering to use it though. Just seeking for a discussion.

That is a valid question. I am doing further backtesting on the technique on other stocks. The example they give with the 4 ETFs covered all triangle alerts issued over the last 2-3 years, and it indeed worked. You know the disclaimer, past performance it not an indication of future performance. So far I have mostly replicated the results on different stocks, I will publish my results once I have more data. However, they are using those 4 ETFs only, that's all they are saying, and indeed it worked for them. The technique is really simple, so simple that I want to make it more complicated. There is no harm in taking the trial BTW.

Thanks for the reply. I like simple strategies.

If I can recall correctly, the last 2-3 years has been an epic trending market, perhaps that can explain its advantage? You said in a previous post that this setup is adapted for a trending market. Not that it's a bad thing, not at all, in fact.

Anyway, I'll definitely give the trial a run when I can to scrape off some insights from it.
