Long-time viewers of this blog and dshort are aware that I am of the opinion that moving averages applied to the high yield mutual funds are great tools per the ownership of the funds and can be helpful guides to the size of allocations in equity positions.
Months ago the high yield mutual funds crossed below key moving averages, suggesting to harvest shares in high yield funds and lower exposure to the stock market.(see high yield harvest signals back in June)
Below is an update of several high yield mutual funds…

I am a fan of staging into the high yield mutual fund complex and using them as macro risk allocation tools…helping determine the amount of risk exposure an investors should have overall. As can be seen above, numerous high yield funds suggested to harvest in June (crossing below moving averages) and now they have crossed above the 50EMA key moving averages of late. This creates buy signals for the funds and starts sending some positive signals for risk assets as well!
As I shared back in June, using moving average tools on high yield funds is not the holy grail, yet they sure can help per portfolio construction! Breaking above the 50EMA is the first stage towards dipping a toe back in to the high yield fund arena!
Don’t grieve for me, for now I am free. I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work or play.
If my leaving has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much, good friends, good family, a loved one’s touch.
Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.
Having lost my dad, I know there is little I can offer in condolences other than words. Thanks to you his memory will live on.
so good to have you back with precious charts and info; I would like to ask you: if you throw a quick glance at your proprietary “shoe box” indicators, what do you see for conservative investors?
Is it “green light” for everyone, or still a trader’s market??
Thank you so much, your dedication to your job and your many followers is incredible and humbling to say the least.
