Managing Risk Around the Business Cycle Using Sector Rotation*

Several years ago, Martin Pring wrote a book entitled The All-Season Investor. It described how the business cycle was nothing more or less than a set series of chronological sequences. These sequences form seasons. Just like the calendar year, there is a specific one for planting, one for growing, and another for harvesting. There is even a time when you should be doing nothing. In similar manner, business-cycle seasons lend themselves to specific asset classes and market sectors.

Martin Pring, publisher, Intermarket Review, will explain how you can recognize each stage in the cycle and give you the tools to achieve that. He will also answer the question of what sectors and asset classes have traditionally performed best in each of these financial seasons, as well as those to avoid.

Topics covered will include:

  • What the business cycle is, and how it determines the turning points of bonds, stocks, and commodities
  • How the cycle can be divided into six stages (seasons) providing the framework to use as a roadmap for optimum asset allocations
  • How to follow simple indicators to help you identify the prevailing stage of the cycle
  • How this approach can tell you what sectors (ETFs) to buy and when to sell them
  • How to determine whether inflation- or deflation-hedge stocks are the place to be
  • Basic technical tools that help identify primary trend reversals, including an extended discussion on long-term smoothed momentum
  • A full discussion of the principles of relative strength and how to apply them in a practical way
  • An outline of profitable intermarket strategies and how to apply them using ETFs and other vehicles
If you want to be on the right side of the market in any environment, you won't want to miss this in-depth session, taught by the man described by Barron's as the "technician's technician."
