The technical analysis model, the valuation model, and the buy/sell model are the pillars of the triModel Framework. They work collaboratively to assess market conditions and identify high-probability trade opportunities on both the long and short sides. Whenever the technical analysis and valuation models forebode trouble ahead, we look to the buy/sell model for a SELL trigger. Conversely, whenever the technical analysis and valuation models foresee 'clear sailing', we look to the buy/sell model for a BUY trigger.
The flowchart below depicts the framework's decision-making process. Please visit the buy/sell model page to see some of the recent buy and sell signals, including the 2/21/2019 SELL signal that was triggered just two days after the 2009-2020 bull market ended, ushering in a vicious bear market. It was triggered on the back of major red flags raised by the technical analysis and valuation models. See the June 2019 forecast to appreciate the timeliness of this SELL signal.
