About the Bull & Bear Tracker

The Bull & Bear Tracker is a trend predictor algorithm developed by Michael Markowski who has a successful track record for developing high performance trading and investing algorithms.

The Bull & Bear Tracker monitors the global markets 24 hours per day and 365 days a year to predict the direction of the S&P 500, the world’s most liquid and largest stock market index.  When the Bull & Bear Tracker reads that the S&P 500 is headed higher, its signal is green. When the market is headed lower, its signal is red. The Bull & Bear Tracker is always in the market with either a green or red signal.  

The Bull & Bear Tracker’s signals are utilized to trade exchange traded funds (ETFs) which mimic the performance of the S&P 500.  A long ETF is utilized when the signal is green.   A short or inverse ETF is utilized when the signal is red.  When the S&P 500 advances by 10% while under a green signal, the long ETF increases by 10%.  Conversely, should the S&P 500 decline by 10% while a red signal is in effect, the inverse ETF would increase by 10%.

The algorithm which powers the Bull & Bear Tracker was originally developed in 2016 to be a crash predictor.  The markets had become extremely volatile in 2016 after the Bank of Japan announced that they would be utilizing negative interest rates.  The only RED signal that the algorithm published during 2016 predicted the June 2016 Brexit Crash. Since negative interest rates subsided after Donald Trump was elected President, the algorithm was moth balled.  When the markets became more volatile in early 2018, the algorithm was taken out of retirement and converted into a trend trader.  The first signal, a green, was published on April 9, 2018.  The signals were refined or tweaked by Mr. Markowski from then to June 30, 2019 to improve the performance and reduce the risk.  The tables below depict the performance of the Bull & Bear Tracker since June 30, 2019.
