Predictions

Bubbles, crashes, rallies, and corrections

Fundamental, cyclical, and emotional factors influence financial markets and can be observed in market prices. Over various time frames, prices can exhibit non-random behavior such as trending, mean-reversion, or bubbles. These price patterns arise in all global markets and can be exploited profitably given adequate liquidity.

But price patterns are transitory and poorly understood by most discretionary investors. The Efficient Crashes Optimizer (ECO) asset price model identifies signatures in price data indicating potential crashes or rallies and estimates the magnitudes, the probabilities, and the timing of expected moves.

In the examples below, various predictions for several assets are highlighted in the table.  We track the forward-tested results of these predictions by using the ‘hedge’ column to weight each asset return.  Note that some assets can be levered up to 2X.

In addition to the assets shown here, predictions/trading signals can be calculated on a variety of individual or index returns of equities, fixed income, commodities, or currencies over various periodicities.

Where do you invest?  Our timing tools can be beneficial to you across a wide variety of assets.
