Tajma börsen med hjälp av Schillers CAPE
The construction and rules for our CAPE-Cycle-ID model are summarized below. The rules differ from the Wong model only in respect to the investment choices and trading times.
- A primary oscillator is constructed from the year-over-year rate-of-change of the CAPE (YoY-ROC-CAPE).
- The exponential moving average (EMA) of the YoY-ROC-CAPE is then calculated with a smoothing factor of 0.20 (EMA-YoY-ROC-CAPE).
- A secondary indicator is calculated from the month-over-month change of the EMA-YoY-ROC-CAPE (MoM-EMA-YoY-ROC-CAPE).
- Score +1 when the EMA-YoY-ROC-CAPE is greater or equal to -13%, otherwise score -1.
- Score +1 when the MoM-EMA-YoY-ROC-CAPE is greater than zero or when it has a positive slope, i.e. when the current month level is greater than the previous month level, otherwise score -1.
- Sum the scores for each month. Possible combined scores are +2, 0, and -2.
- Invest in the stock market when the combined score is +2 or 0.
- Go to cash or bonds when the combined score is -2.
After a combined score change, trade on the first trading day of the following week.
