Foreshadowing: Tactical Asset Allocation
I’m going to be starting a new monthly feature here on the blog tracking the real-time performance of a monthly tactical asset allocation model (similar in spirit to Mebane Faber’s excellent work).
I’m not ready to share details just yet (I’m still tinkering), but I wanted to get my “trades” in for the upcoming month before it’s too late. At the close on 09/30, the new October model allocation will be:
Long 45% IEF (U.S. 10-Year Treasuries)
Long 30% VNQ (Real Estate)
Long 25% GLD (Gold)
This is very much a work-in-progress (and I hope I don’t regret jumping the gun like this) but I didn’t want to wait another whole month to get the ball rolling.
I’ll be using the model to trade a bit of my own capital, but unlike our proprietary strategies, it will not be independently-audited. This one is just for giggles.
More to follow.
