About the Bull & Bear Tracker

The Bull & Bear Tracker is a trend-trading-algorithm developed by Michael Markowski who has a successful track record for developing high performance trading and investing algorithms.  The algorithm powers the Bull & Bear Wealth Builder product.  

The Bull & Bear Tracker monitors the global markets 24 hours per day to predict the direction of the S&P 500, the world’s largest stock market index.  When the Bull & Bear Tracker reads that the market is headed higher its signal is green.  When the market is headed lower its signal is red. The Bull & Bear Tracker is always in the market with either a green or red signal.  The Bull & Bear Tracker trades triple leveraged exchange trade funds (ETFs) which mimic the performance of the S&P 500.  

  • When the Bull & Bear Tracker’s signal is green it trades the Direxion Daily S&P 500 Bull 3X ETF (Symbol:SPXL).  
  • When the Bull & Bear Tracker’s signal is red it trades the Direxion Daily S&P 500 Bear 3X ETF (Symbol:SPXS).  

Since the two ETFs deploy triple leverage a 10% increase in the S&P 500 would result in the SPXL increasing by 30%.  Conversely, upon a decline of 10% by the S&P 500, the SPXS would increase by 30%.
