Bull is still running
Our last buy signal for both the S&P500 and NDX100was on March 20, 2009, a good call. The marketcontinues to show strength. Our HVI indicators show usthat the bull is still alive and well. For the year, theS&P500 and NDX indexes are up 23.60and 52.34%respectively. The average of our three portfolios is up55.9% YTD.Our HCM resistance and support chart of the S&P500index on page 2 illustrates that the market remains in anuptrend.Our analysis indicates that: precious metals,commodities, Latin America, Emerging markets, andtechnology are promising. Promising region/countryfunds are: Emerging Markets, US, England andGermany. These funds and indexes suggest that theEmerging Markets, as producers of commodities, arethriving to feed growth in China and India. The US dollar continues to be a sell as the US pays its debt in fiatdollars. There is a lot of rhetoric in Congress to hold theFed to a strong dollar policy, but it is Treasury’s job tohold up the dollar.Our absolute momentum (HVI) comparison for the style box on page 2 indicates that large cap beats small capstocks. We have recently become aware of institutionalstyle box analysis. We believe our style box analysisresponds faster than institutional analysis. Our sector lineup this month is gold, pharmaceutical, and commodities.We continue to have buys on S&P500, NDX, gold/ precious metals. We have a new sell on bond yields (i.e.we are long bonds); see the left column on page 1.Because the markets can turn quickly, be ready. Maythe market be with you! (November 20, 2009)

he Harloff Value Index, HVI, is a proprietary forcasting index developed by Dr. Harloff. The money market value is zero. High positive numbersare desirable and negative numbers are not. The HVI is presented for a wide variety of mutual funds and market indexes for both domestic andinternational markets. With this one index, the financial markets of the world can be ranked and compared. The investment strategy employed is tostay invested in high HVI funds. In addition, we also employ dynamic asset allocation to assist us in decisions to be in equity or money market funds.The HVI is computed for about 125 mutual funds and indexes, which are ranked and sorted according to their asset allocation class. The ranking number on the left of the table on p4 and p5 indicates the fund or index position without regard to asset class. The mutual fund list, selected for analysis, isdynamic and changes with time.
