The current strong market is serving investors well if they made no changes in their portfolios. Those five portfolios where I am using the ITA Risk Reduction model will suffer as a result of the robust domestic and recovery of international market. Nobody claimed the ITARR model works all the time. It is designed to prevent major losses during bear markets and that is not what is occurring right now. In fact, this is a positive market, particularly for the summer. The old adage that the stock market is an "economy seer" six months in advance of the event, bodes well for a pickup this fall or early winter. Or this could be a fake rally to sucker cash holding investors back into the market. The best we can do is try to stay or the right side of the market the majority of the time.
