Posted by PowerStocks Research on Monday, June 29, 2009, In : New Strategy 
We have added a new market entry/exit timing model to our arsenal, namely the SA Reserve Bank Leading Composite Economic Indicator investment timing model. This is our most complex timing model to date and utilises 12 pieces of leading economic indicators to guage the current economic cycle, such as manufacturing data, confidence surveys, commodity prices, M1 money supply, residential building plans passed etc.
