Book Description

Want to find out if an ETF Rotation style of investing is for you?

Truth About ETF Rotation can help you decide by educating you about a strategy that actually doubled a hypothetical account value between 2004 and 2009 when the rest of the world markets were crashing.

Benefits of ETF Rotation:
• Easy investment strategy.
• Fits into a busy schedule.
• Low overhead in terms of time, commissions, and taxes.
• No knowledge of stock markets or business required.
• Investments follow major market indexes to limit losses and volatility.

The first book in the Beat the Crash™ series, Truth About ETF Rotation first lays out a baseline for comparison. To make it realistic and challenging, a portfolio of diversified assets is outlined and characterized with extensive portfolio simulation. By comparing to the performance of this reference portfolio you can see which strategies are likely to do better than buy-and-hold.

You probably know you should be testing out investment strategies before using them, but if you’re like most people, you haven’t actually gotten around to doing it. Frankly, backtesting is a tedious chore that takes considerable expertise to complete. Author and computer engineer Jackie Ann Patterson does the heavy lifting for you, and presents the results of hundreds of hours of testing in an easy-to-read format in Truth About ETF Rotation.

Truth About ETF Rotation comes with excellent bonus materials, including an ETF rotation calculator and trade-by-trade backtesting data.

Beat the Crash is a new series of Kindle books that focuses on investment strategies that help individuals protect and grow their retirement funds. ETF Rotation is the first strategy tested and more are on the way!

4.0 out of 5 stars Investing made safe December 25, 2012
By Rich
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is short but provides internal links to additional material. The overall strategy is near the end of the book. I suggest reading the strategy first, then reading the rest of the book from the beginning and you will better appreciate the beginning information. I have read some other information from her on the net as well as a You Tube presentation and it is all consistent. She suggests using a long period ROC for her ranking system but a shorter period RSI ranking might be better for the latter stages of a bull market. I suggest expanding on her universe of ETFs to investment sectors and other geographic regions but I agree with her choice of core ETFs--apparently I use the same brokerage firm. I very much like her strategy because it includes subtle elements of market timing. She has definitely thought about avoiding the pain of a future market crash. Overall a quick and useful read. I think you could easily implement her strategy at any time vice waiting for a major pull back. I suggest reading Leslie Masonson's books on market time and sector rotation for additional background as well as The Ivy Portfolio by Mebane Faber (I think the definitive book on ETF investing). After reading it, I am glad I read the book and would likely buy and read her next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked it June 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this book was pretty good. It got me thinking about ETF rotation and caused me to develop my own rotation strategy based off some of her ideas. She also puts her money where her mouth is and uses the strategy in her IRA account, which she posts statements for.

Great read. There are lots of books on ETF rotation. I found this to be an easy read with documented back testing. The author also has a web site with real time returns posted.

Anyone who manages their own portfolio as I do should read Jackie's "Truth about ETF Rotation." Sure I have diversified my mutual funds, but when should I really get into or out of that small cap fund? And, if I am rotating funds, logically I should be using ETFs. Jackie shows in this super tight little book the advantages of using an ETF rotation strategy over buy-and-hold of my diversified portfolio. She also considers bonds, commodities, real estate, inverse funds, cash, and stop losses in this strategy. Her research is rigorous and comprehensive. After reading this book I will be able to implement the strategy in my portfolio.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quick read March 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I wanted to review some ideas I had some time ago and went looking on Amazon for books on this subject. Ms. Patterson's book is a great little read on the subject covering enough of the basic ideas to give folks who haven't considered ETF rotation a good start, as well as including through her web site access to some basic Excel spreadsheets to allow readers to do some playing and thinking about what might work for their own needs.

I appreciated that Ms. Patterson paid attention (at least at a high level) to the impact of taxes as well as creating your own benchmark index to measure again.

An excellent little read. Well worth the cost on Kindle and the hour or two it takes to go through it the first time.

Gives the reader a simple plan for evaluating and investing in ETF's. Easy to implement and easy to follow instructions. Doesn't take long to read and is full of backtesting and various charts with all the results you could want. It certainly got my attention to try this method to see how well it will work.

I would have liked for the book to include the various families of funds that could be an alternative to the authors suggested ETF model. Some like Vanguard and Schwab could make this approach easy and cheap.

This is a first in a series of ebooks that will follow the authors approach to investing.

A pretty good introduction to ETF rotation. Somewhat hard to read, as it reads like a stream of consciousness from the author. Hwever, its a grear place to start
