The Bull & Bear Tracker’s (BBT) core or automated signals to trade S&P 500’s SPY and SH ETFs outperformed the S&P 500 and also the BBT’s managed signals for the eight months ended February 29, 2020. The risk for BBT’s automated and its managed signals was lower than the S&P 500.
The bullets below explain the difference between the Bull & Bear Tracker’s signals:
- Automated/core – in the market 24/7, 365 days a year with a long or short bias for 100% of the time. The signals are also known as the core signals since the managed signals are derived from them.
- Managed/published – derived from the automated signals with the difference being the application of technical analyses and other indicators to be in cash for a percentage of the time to reduce market exposure risk. The managed signals were published via subscriber text messages.
The table below depicts the performance metrics for the BBT’s signals and the S&P 500 for the eight months of July 2019 through February 2020.
The Bull & Bear Tracker’s managed and automated signals generated gains for each of the eight months in the above table. The S&P 500 produced a profit for only five of the eight months. The 39.4% of profits for the BBT’s automated signals was approximately three times the BBT managed signal’s 13.78% profit.
The S&P 500 was the top performer for only one of the eight months with a gain of 2.9% for December 2019. The BBT’s automated signals outperformed the S&P 500 and the BBT’s managed signals for six of the eight months.
The BBT’s managed signals were the least risky since they were invested 65.9% of the time. The BBT automated and the S&P 500 were 100% invested for the entire eight months.
On March 3, 2020, the Bull & Bear Tracker (BBT) suspended the text messaging of its managed signals to trade long and short S&P 500 index ETFs. The managed signals to trade long market index ETFs are no longer available via a subscription. They are exclusively available to registered investment advisors. The BBT’s managed signals to primarily trade inverse or short index ETFS will soon be available via the BBT’s Bear Trader. See May 7, 2020, “Bear Trader, Short the Market Algo up 40.6% since March 2020”.
Based on the findings from my empirical research its highly recommended to engage a registered investment advisor to trade the Bull & Bear Tracker’s signals. From March 2020 through the end of the fourth quarter of 2022, the SCPA algorithm is forecasting a 100% probability for the following:
- The S&P 500 to continue to make lower lows and to a final bottom in Q4 2022 which will be 79% below the 2020 high.
- A long and short index ETF trading strategy to produce average gains per month of 17%. See “Market Volatility to Power 17% monthly gains through October 2022”.
The BBT with its average monthly gain of 22.2% since March 2020 has already proven that average monthly gains of 17% are highly probable. The potential for an aggregate return of 510% (30 months @ 17%) is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Engage an advisor NOW!

My prediction is that the S&P 500’s secular bull market which began in March 2009 ended on February 19, 2020. The ninth secular bear since 1802 began on February 20th. The 4-minute video below is about why a market is always in a secular bull or bear phase. The difference between secular and cyclical bulls and bears is also explained.
