As readers here know, we have done some several backtesting of INO's monthly alerts. With recent market events, I ran these tests again for QQQQ, SPY and XLF.
Here are the charts showing each buy and sell alerts (please click to enlarge):
Here are the results for $10k invested initially, compared with buy & hold.
- SPY: +21.5% vs -3.43%
- XLF: +77.06% versus -48.17%
- QQQQ: +51.90% versus +2.13%
The results are indeed quite impressive, particularly when compared to buy and hold. That is why you hear a lot that buy and hold is dead.
