"Earn Double-Digit Returns While Avoiding Major Down Markets"

    Discussed by:

    Nick Atkeson
    Founding Partner, Delta Investment Management, LLC
    Andrew Houghton
    Founding Partner, Delta Investment Management, LLC

Would you like to understand market super cycles and how to avoid losses in your portfolio? Nick and Andrew will discuss changing investor risk premiums that are more directly tied to the movement of the stock market than earnings and measures of risk. They will investigate analysis tools including the moving average crossover model, market sentiment measures, stop-loss and relative strength. Learn which market metrics are the most important ones; how to measure them; and when to buy, what to buy and when to sell.
