    A post labor day decline this week with the S&P down -2.1%. Bonds and commodities were flat for the week. The portfolio slipped -0.7% as cash was raised again this week. Mondays buy is Camping World CWH, and the model is selling grocer Albertsons ACI after a nice runup.

    bonds 22.8% (-7.8%)
    commodities 23.4% (-0.1%)

    The decline continued this week with the S&P down another -1.0%. Bonds were flat +0.0% and commodities gained +0.6% for the week. The portfolio slipped -0.1% as cash was raised to the highest level since I started this exercise. The model does seem to be protecting the drawdowns (-0.8% vs 3.1%) at the expense a smaller gains during the rallies. The model appears to be finished selling and is interested in bottom fishing LVS, and adding gas play UGI and financial BHF on Monday.

    equity 24.9% (-15.3%)
    bonds 17.1% (-5.7%)
    commodities 23.8% (+0.4%)
    cash 34.2% (+20.5%)

    Performance since 1/1/2021
    Model portfolio +9.3%(-0.1% this week)
    SPY +18.1%(-1.0% this week)

    Breadth continues to fall with 3595 (43.5%) stocks above the 50 day SMA while 4670 (56.5%) are below the SMA50. The McClellan reversed at the 50% RSI and continues to fall but still doesn't show any signs of an accelerating decline. The BDI finished its pull back and is stalled at the ATH.

    The decline reversed and retraced much of the move this week with the S&P ending down -1.0%. Bonds gained +0.4% and commodities slipped -0.9% for the week. The portfolio was up +0.3% and cash remains high.

    I'm pretty satisfied with the strategy but the number of equities is now over 175 and it's becoming too much work to trade. Starting in October I plan to cut the number of equity positions in half and add a trend following index and sector strategy in its place. Hopefully it will result in less churn to the portfolio.

    equity 23.7% (-1.2%)
    bonds 17.1% (+0.0%)
    commodities 24.1% (+0.3%)
    cash 35.1% (+0.9%)

    Performance since 1/1/2021
    Model portfolio +9.6%(+0.3% this week)
    SPY +17.1%(-1.0% this week)
    BND -1.8%(+0.4%)
    DJP +27.8%(-1.0%)

    Breadth may have reversed as 3752 (45.2%) stocks are above the 50 day SMA while 4540 (54.8%) are below the SMA50. The McClellan reversed at -70 and turned up with negative divergences developing. The BDI set new ATH.

    The Santa Rally this week gave the S&P a 1.0% gain. Bonds slipped -0.1% and commodities rallied +0.6%. The portfolio was down -0.3%. Cash was deployed to start the new year.

    A little end of the year analysis shows the portfolio limited the September 6.5% correction to just -2.1% but the December 4.2% drawdown caused a 6.1% drawdown as the portfolio was stopped out of almost all the equity positions. What was to be a protection from drawdowns cost almost 2/3 of the S&P gains for the year. Still an 8% gain is far better than any fixed income can produce, but really lagged last years 25.4% gain. The model performs poorly in a choppy market as the strategy is trend following and the lag between stops and re-entries causes the trading to sell low and buy high if the cycles are short.

    equity 23.1% (+15.6%)
    bonds 36.6% (+11.1%)
    commodities 19.4% (+17.1%)
    cash 2.2% (-46.9%)

    Performance for 2021
    Model portfolio +8.1%(-0.3% this week)
    SPY +27.0%(+1.0% this week)
    BND -3.9%(-0.1%)
    DJP +31.1%(+0.6%)
