Backtesting: Mystical End Of Month
This strategy is based on the idea by Norman Fosback from the 1970's: the stock market is generally bullish at the beginning and end of each month. It buys X market days before the end of the month and sells Y market days after the start of the following month. I publish it with the QLD, it works on mostly all US index ETFs. (that what I tested) Try it yourself. I usee 99% of the portfolio value. While I was doing it, I discovered something really interesting... I reduce the position size here on the website to 95%. Want to know why?
