Analyst David Vomund, consistently ranked one of the top market timers
in the country, is publisher of VIS Alert, a weekly advisory
covering overall market movement, industry group rotation, and individual
Vomund considers market timing and group rotation to be important
factors for successful stock selection. He explains:
"Most people focus their analysis solely on individual stocks.
They are missing the boat by ignoring the influence of the overall
market and the effect of the stockís industry group. Even if a stock
has outstanding fundamentals, if the overall market is unfavorable
and its industry group is underperforming, that stock will likely
move lower. In VIS Alert, we focus on all factors that influence stock
Proven Market Timing
TradingExpert, the AIQ Systems award-winning
Expert System software product, plays an integral part in Vomundís
market timing. To determine market direction, Vomund uses unique indicators
specific to the AIQ software and looks at the number of stocks giving
AIQ buy and sell signals. He combines these factors along with support
and resistance levels to form a market outlook.
A barometer which displays Vomundís current market timing outlook
along with an explanation of the technical conditions supporting his
opinion appears in every issue of VIS Alert. Vomund indicates
whether large company stocks or small company stocks are more attractive
and gives support and resistance levels for both the S&P 500 index
and the Nasdaq Composite.
Each issue of VIS Alert includes a report that ranks industry
groups based on the strength or weakness of each groupís price and
Those groups showing the strongest accumulation appear in the bullish
section. Groups showing distribution fall to the bearish section of
the ranking. Since the indicators lead price action, a strong performing
group often falls in the ranking before a top is established.
Vomund has created a group structure that is large enough to capture
most areas of the economy but small enough to easily identify the
rotation of the groups. Many of the groups correspond to Rydex sector
funds. The most attractive and least attractive groups are listed
in every issue of VIS Alert.
In his twelve years as Chief Analyst at AIQ
Systems, David Vomund has tested literally hundreds of trading
systems and indicator strategies. The most effective systems are applied
to the security selections found in VIS Alert.
Bullish Spotlight - Vomund incorporates market timing
factors, industry group rotation, and individual stock information
to highlight a timely investment. While some selections are designed
for short-term trades, the majority of selections are for investors
who hold securities for several months. This serves as a great learning
tool for AIQ Users or those who do their own technical analysis.
Bearish Spotlight - Using the same format at Bullish
Spotlight, this section shows a market index or a stock that has
a bearish technical picture. The reasons behind the selection along
with a supporting graph are shown. For both the bullish and bearish
selections, the Money Flow indicator plays an important role in the
Style Index Portfolio - An automated model portfolio
is tracked which trades Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) that track market
indexes. ETFs are index funds that trade just like stocks. They track
market indexes such a Small-Cap Growth, Small-Cap Value, Large-Cap
Growth, Large-Cap Value, etc. This portfolio holds two securities
and rotates to the segment of the market with the best performance.
This is a strategy that most people can be comfortable with because
it allows them to participate in the market without the risk of holding
