Discover The Amazing Power Of Point & Figure Charting

Mutual Funds

Managing mutual funds with point and figure charts of relative strength

 

Easy - Effective - Suitable for all investors

  • Point and figure charts have been used since before the first open-ended mutual fund opened for business in 1928.

  • The point and figure method was actively used at the time of World War I.

  • Relative strength on stocks developed shortly after the introduction of business computers in the 1950's.

  • It was natural to apply point and figure techniques to applications of relative strength.

 

The Market Dynamics relative strength, point and figure charting system

 now applies the techniques to mutual funds


 

An example of a mutual fund with strong relative strength follows:

  • This chart covers four years of data

  • The strong up trend is shown over the past two years.

  •  The relative strength remained above the 45-degree Bullish Support Line during the advance

  •  This is a picture of a big winner in the mutual fund sector.


example of a poorly performing mutual fund.

  • This fund was one of the big losers in the mutual fund sector.

  • The relative strength remained stubbornly below the 45-degree Bearish Resistance Line

  •  Long-term investors needed to sell this fund and avoid it thereafter

 


 

Why is the downtrend shown in red?

 

  •  The Market Dynamics mutual fund system incorporates a unique feature called a Performance Alarm

  •  That turns red when the relative strength of that fund becomes unacceptable.

  •  The computer program tests for poor performance and does not require a subjective  analysis on the part of the user.

  •  It is clear that long-term investors should not buy and should not hold mutual funds that are under a Performance Alarm.

Athletic coaching, business management and investment management

  • As an athletic coach, why keep a player on the team who can't perform?

  • As a business manager, why retain an employee who can't or won't get the job done?

  • As an investor, why hold a fund that can't perform as well as the Vanguard S&P 500 index fund?

  • An investor would be better off to own the Vanguard S&P 500 index fund rather than a fund that performs poorly against that benchmark.
