The graphs on this website illustrate examples utilizing either a technical indicator methodology or an annual rebalance methodology with a particular security. The graphs used to illustrate a recession uses the S&P 500, ticker symbol SPY, from January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2009, including dividends being reinvested. The graph used to illustrate a bull market uses the S&P 500, ticker symbol SPY from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2019, including dividends being reinvested. In the Tactical Methodology, the red line on the graphs portrays a buy and hold approach of SPY. The green line represents utilizing the 200 day SMA technical indicator as a signal of when to hold the position, sell the position and buy back into the position. When signaled to sell, SPY is replaced with SHY, the 1-3 year Treasury Bond ETF, and dividends are reinvested. When signaled to buy, SHY is replaced with SPY. In these graphs, when SPY falls below the 200 SMA at month end, the position is moved (sold) to SHY. When SPY is above the 200 Day SMA at month end, the position is moved back (bought) to SPY. Inside the Dynamic illustration, 100% of the position is bought or sold when signaled. Inside of the Target illustration, only 50% of the position is bought or sold when signaled. In the Strategic Methodology, the red line on the graph portrays a buy and hold approach of SPY. The green line represents an annual rebalance as no technical indicators are utilized in this methodology. Although this follows our core methodology, actual trades may differ, thus resulting in materially different results. Volatility in the index illustrated may be materially different than any actual model or portfolio allocation. In addition, certain market factors may influence decisions regarding changes in the allocation, thus resulting in significant differences in actual performance results. This is for illustration purposes only and does not represent a specific portfolio, model or individual client. As these examples are not indicative of actual models or returns, it does not include any management, custodial or other fees that would be present in an actual portfolio, model or actual client’s account
