Does Trend Trading the ASX Work?
One of our readers asked us what the performance is of our flagship MATI trend signal for the Australian ASX index. This question came following our blog post on the turn around dates for the MATI for the S&P 500.
See below our response to the various questions our reader was askling us. We think it could be of interest to you as well.
Below and attached is an overview of when the MATI turned up and down since the beginning of 2006.
You can see that 2008 and 2010 were “difficult” years for Trend Investing due to the fluctuations in the market.
However, overall the MATI results are good for the ASX.
From the beginning of 2006 till now, the MATI for the ASX gives a return of 37% while the index itself is just 15% up (this is compounded)
When following a Trend Signal like the MATI, I accept that it is not always right, but over the years it is much more profitable.
On your question on if this Trend Investing approach is suitable for the Australian superannuation, I cannot give you an answer.
Please check this with a local tax expert.
We offer a package for $57 per 3-months (including 1st week free trial).
This package include the MATI for 16 markets (15 stock market indices and Gold).
I have attached the update that we sent out this morning to our clients.
We aim to keep it as simple as possible.
Please let me know any other questions you may have.
