SIX MODEL TRADING PORTFOLIOS
TrimTabs does more than compile data and offer analysis. It uses the data it collects to create alpha-generating model trading portfolios.
TrimTabs offers six model trading portfolios with varying levels of risk:
TrimTabs Demand Index Model Portfolio. This model portfolio for intermediate-term market timing is based on the TrimTabs Demand Index, which is constructed using fund flow and sentiment variables. It is either 100% short the S&P 500, 100% in cash, 100% long the S&P 500, or 200% long the S&P 500, and it changes as often as daily.
Since this model portfolio's inception in September 2008, it has increased 878%, versus a 99% gain for SPY (SPDR S&P 500) in the same period.
