The author's preference among the seven basic portfolio strategies outlined in Demoostify, changed from 60-40 static to momentum on 11/02/2018. Although static strategies require less attention, and have out-performed in a Fed-centric world over the past 3-10 years, their performance appears to be weakening as interest rates rise. The third equity correction of 2018 suggests a more normalized market based on the business cycle. That and recent revisions to the model appear to be making Index Moose a competitive option once again.
