The seasonal sector rotation strategy is built upon the precept that certain areas of the market place exhibit patterns over time which coincide with the calendar, and the US election cycle.

There are many ways to 'follow the trend' and one which we have built here is a combination of following cyclical trends which have held up for almost 300 years both on an annual basis and within the 4-year US election cycle. We have tested a wide range of different instruments, covering a diverse pool of sectors and industries, and our seasonal sector rotation strategy is the zenith of this. We categorise our pool of instruments as either offensive or defensive, and when the wider market exhibits either of these conditions, then we are able to select from our mechanised approach which position we believe will be best for the market conditions, using a then counter-intuitive mean reversion approach.

This Seasonal Sector Rotational Strategy works by cross referencing a list of of differing ETF's which cover the entire width and breadth of the market with our indicator matrix which we have developed.

This matrix is made up of multiple elements to determine which position should be held for the forth coming market condition. This ranking system take into consideration multiple factors including:

  • Time of Year

  • Year within US Election cycle

  • Fama-French 3-Factor Model

  • Relative Strength Index

  • Exponential Moving Average Cross Over

There are a few other key indicators we use, which are proprietary. Each indicator produces a number which is then added up to give a rank. The instrument with the highest value is then selected for the following trade.

The value of investments may fall as well as rise and the income from investments may fluctuate and is not guaranteed. Clients may not recover the amount invested.

Trading and investing can be a challenging and potentially profitable opportunity for investors. However, before deciding to participate in the market, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose.

There is considerable exposure to risk in any investment transaction. Any transaction involving securities involves risks including, but not limited to, the potential for changing political and/or economic conditions that may substantially affect the price or liquidity of a currency. Investments in speculation may also be susceptible to sharp rises and falls as the relevant market values fluctuate. The leveraged possibility of trading means that any market movement will have an equally proportional effect on your deposited funds. This may work against you as well as for you. Not only may investors get back less than they invested, but in the case of higher risk strategies, investors may lose the entirety of their investment. It is for this reason that when speculating in markets it is advisable to use only risk capital.
