Intermarket Analysis & Business Cycle Investing

David Calloway

This chart list attempts to identify the current phase of the business cycle by comparing the relative performance of ETFs representing defined sectors of the economy to the S&P 500. Once the Business Cycle Phase has been determined, various ETFs are identified that might be expected to out-perform in the current cycle. Rotating your stock portfolio from sector to sector based on business cycle principals is one way to improve performance.
