Market Update: 05-06-19

The Fund holds about 85% in short-term bonds and about 15% in stocks.  I sold stocks that were not performing as expected last week and purchased new ones which appear to have strong fundamentals and sound technical chart patterns.  It has been a frustrating year for risk managers, but I am confident that my strategies can keep us out of...

The Fund holds about 85% in short-term bonds and about 15% in stocks.  I added to our stock positions last week and I expect to increase stock exposure this week if earnings come in better than expected.  A few leading growth stocks were crushed after releasing negative earnings and guidance last week, but I am finding many more leading...
