This is a rotational trend following strategy that selects 3 ETFs that are invested in single countries with the greatest return over the last 6 month period (see the list of 35 single country ETFs at the bottom of the page). The strategy always stays fully invested.
To start off, the system picks the top 3 single country ETFs with the highest rate of return over the past 6 months. Thereafter, at the end of each month if the currently held ETFs are still in the top 7 ranking for single country ETFs over the last 6 months, they continue to be held. Otherwise, any ETFs that have fallen below position 7 are exchanged for the current highest ranked ETF not already held. (Note that the performance of this strategy depends on when you start as the top 3 ETFs this month are unlikely to be the same as the holdings in the portfolio below).
Portfolio changes are made on the last day of the month at the market close.
6 Month Performance Of ETFs
The table below shows the performance of the ETFs over the last 6 months. (6 months is taken as 126 trading days). This table can be used to select the top 3 ETFs each month and then monitor their relative ranking. Please note that the ETF prices rely on google quotes which intermittently does not work for certain ETFs, consequently if there is an ETF at the top of the table without a performance percentage, please check back later. Any ETFs missing a quote price are automatically sorted to the top of the table so this means that it is probably not the best performing ETF over the last 6 months.
