Newton Portfolio Updated
Over the last few days, a few shares of international bonds in the form of EMB were purchased. This was a "toe dip" in an effort to set up all the links within the TLH spreadsheet. I also picked up shares of VEU and VBR for the Newton. Despite these additions, both asset classes are still well below target. See the Dashboard below.
On another topic not related to the Newton, I've been running some QPP analysis of historical data to see how well the "Delta Index" worksheet is showing up in pointing investors toward full or partial investments. The worksheet data is not sufficiently accurate to time the market, but it does look sufficiently strong to tilt portfolios one way or the other. For example, back in January of 2009 the "Delta Index" worksheet was giving signals it was time to be fully invested in equities. Those same signals are somewhat muted in today's market.
