Protect and grow your capital in bull and bear markets.

MechanicalMarketTiming.com is a pure mechanical impulse system for trading the most popular Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), which are DIA, SPY, and QQQ. We have become a leading financial service for investors and traders who want to take advantage of our highly effective algorithm, in both bullish and bearish markets. Our system is a purely quantitative technical approach to market timing that does not involve interpretation. The system does not predict or forecast market movement. Our approach is based on reacting to price action.

Our system uses a combination of 'trend following' and 'momentum' to identify tradeable impulses. Trend followers use what we call 'reactive technical analysis'. Instead of trying to predict the market's direction, our approach is geared to react to the markets movements as soon as possible after they occur. Hence, we seek to respond to the market, not anticipate it. Our focus is therefore on identifying any trend/momentum reversal at a relatively early stage and to ride the new trend until the weight of evidence shows or proves that it has reversed. This is further explained in our methodology.

As a member you will know when to Buy Long and when to Sell Short with the trading signals generated for DIA, SPY, and QQQ based on our time-proven proprietary algorithms for any market condition (bullish or bearish). There is no better way to protect your capital when the market crashes!


YTD Results as of May 12, 2020 - We are having an excellent year! Our members have profited +35.72% (YTD Average) (+32.62% SPY, +31.79% DIA, and +42.76% QQQ). The buy and hold strategy is down -7.65% (yearly total average for DIA, SPY, and QQQ). Our current signal is up +11.90%. We are currently beating the market by +43.38% YTD. The beginning of the year threw us for a curveball as a downtrend started, but did not play out. However, we made great gains as the market crashed at the end of Feb. We had two small losses back to back, which have aleady been recovered by our current LONG position.

Members: Volatily is up, and the direction over the coming weeks is widely uncertain. Don't miss out on another possible drop and congratulations to those who got in on the last one! We have been in a bull market for 11 years now, and we can expect a large retracement as historically has been the case in similar situations. Major global issues with unemployment, small business challenges, and supply line concerns are also being reflected in the market. However, at MMT, we do not try to predict the trends, but simply react to them as they happen.

Overall Performance - From 2005 to 2019, we have outperformed the stock market 13 of 15 years. If you notice on the table, we never had a losing year. Our average return per year is +22.7% DIA, +21.2% SPY, and +26.8% QQQ, for an average of +23.6%, whereas the buy-and-hold is +9.5% DIA, +8.9% SPY, and +14.3% QQQ with an average of +10.9%. Overall, we are outperforming the stock market by +12.7% per year.

An Example of Our Methodology based on the
"Actual Trading History of QQQ in Year 2016"

The chart above shows our trading history for the ETF "QQQ". Red circles indicate the price & time we went to short sell positions. Green circles show the price & time for long positions. The green lines indicate profitable trades. The shorter red lines indicate nonprofitable trades. Notice how the system 'always' produces profitable gains for trending markets (i.e., trading either up or down). For lateral markets (i.e., nontrending with no clear direction), the system has small negative losses, but never any significant drawdowns. Losing signals are part of any timing strategy, but the key is minimizing large losses. Our system is designed to capture the large trending moves of the market, which will generate a larger return than the sum of all smaller losses. Our methodology for 2016 returned +31.43% for all QQQ trades, whereas the buy-and-hold produced +5.92%.

The main fact to observe from the table is that we are consistently beating the buy-and-hold strategy of the market. If your current trading style is not making these returns, we encourage you to join now and become part of our growing number of happy investors who are prospering from our valuable service!
