The Daily Decision Pro

The Daily Decision-PRO  is designed for active, sophisticated investors who are able to trade markets on a real-time basis and can accept the risks involved with short-term trading as well as options and leveraged ETF’s. So, if aggressively playing market trends is your cup of tea, the “PRO”  may be just what you are looking for.

Our management strategy is easy to define: We want to be fully invested in stock market (via Leveraged ETF’s and options) when the U.S. stock market is rising and we want to be short the market (again, via Leveraged ETF’s and options) when the market is falling. Thus, we are equal-opportunity traders looking to make money whenever and wherever we can.

But make no mistake about it; the “PRO”  is NOT designed, nor is it even appropriate for the average investor. This service is for those able to watch the market closely and to take action on a moment’s notice.

Three Managers Working the Portfolio at All Times

The “Pro” has three professional money managers (whose cumulative experience exceeds 60 years) working on the portfolio at all times.

The allocation of the “PRO”  portfolio will look something like this:

PRO Portfolio
Allocation
Trading
Strategy
20% Options Trading – Calls on Long/Short ETFs
40% Daily Decison Market Timing Strategy 
40% Short-Term ETF Trading

“Live Blog” Technology for Instant Trade Alert Delivery

Trade Alerts are delivered “live” to your web page and will literally sound an alarm whenever we are making a trade. Thus, there is no delay – you know exactly what we are doing in the portfolio the very instant we are making the move. No more waiting for emails or wondering if you’ve missed a trade alert!

Options Strategies to Enhance Returns (and Reduce Risk)

The “Pro” will incorporate options strategies in order to hedge and/or leverage positions. For example, using options (as opposed to an outright purchase of ETF’s) allows us to potentially limit the downside while keeping the upside potential in place. In addition, options offer us the opportunity to leverage our position far greater than is available through traditional leveraged ETF’s.

Constant professional communication guaranteed – Your managers will be in communication via the “live blog” technology during the day.

Performance Updated Daily

At TopStockPortfolios.com, we know the key to any service is the bottom-line. Thus, we update and publish our performance on a daily basis.

The Pro Management Strategy

Below are the key components of the management strategy we employ in the Daily Decision-PRO:

  • The Daily Decision Model used as a “guide” to trend direction (See Model Performance below)
  • Trades are based on “Manager Discretion” (no black boxes – and no excuses)
  • Aggressively “plays” market trends (in both directions) via:
    • Options
    • Leveraged ETF’s
  • Uses “Anticipatory” trend change strategies
  • Utilizes hedging strategies

Let’s Talk “Pro” Pricing

The Daily Decision-PRO  is a “pro level” hedged portfolio that can easily replace your broker and those mutual funds in your portfolio. In short, you can be your own hedge fund manager for just $995 a year, which is less than $83 per month! (Monthly and quarterly subscription plans are also available.)

However, for a limited time, the Daily Decision-PRO  is available at the Introductory Price of just $795 per year.

(Existing subscribers can upgrade to the “PRO” at a substantially discounted rate… Contact us for details.)

To Sum Up

While we may be jaded in our view, we believe strongly that the Daily Decision-PRO  is unlike anything else available on the web for active traders. So, do yourself (and your portfolio) a favor: Fire those mutual fund managers and try the Daily Decision-PRO  instead!

Daily Decision Model Performance Testing

Before we ever go “live” with the trading strategy, we insist that the management system be thoroughly tested; preferably in good markets, bad markets and everything in between. So, before we introduced our Daily Decision service, the largest institutional research firm in the country conducted an independent test of the system. Although no backtest is ever perfect (far from it!), what we were looking for was an indication of how the system could perform in different conditions. In short, based on the numbers below, we felt the system had sufficient potential to put it to work.

Below is a summary of the system test results which formed the basis of our Daily Decision Model. Please note that the results below do NOT represent actual trading. However, the test does provide us with an indication of what we might be able to expect in bull markets, bear markets, and those annoying “in between” environments.

To review, the Daily Decision Model is the “guide” for our management strategy in the “Pro” service.

Although the end result of our testing is impressive, the system isn’t perfect by any stretch and there are some disappointments in some years. For example, 1992 and 1993 weren’t great and I’m guessing I’d get some flak during 2003 and 2005. However, another key point to the system is to understand that when the market “trends” for a while (like it has this year), the system tends to demolish the market index.
