McClintock is one of four Dual Momentum™ portfolios tracked at ITA. This investing model is designed to protect capital. How well is this portfolio meeting this goal. While the Schrodinger lost approximately 6.0% in April, the McClintock decline 2.6%. That is a significant difference.
The Schrodinger is the Robo Advisor or computer managed portfolio. Schwab calls it an intelligent portfolio.

The obvious setting are: 1) The investing model is set to DM. 2) The VTI target filter is turned off. Less obvious is the look-back period. With the Galileo I’m using the default combination of 60- and […]
Normally, I don’t use this Bullish Percent Indicator (BPI) data to manage or influence portfolio management decisions. I use it to give a broad view of how the U.S. Equities market is performing.
