How Our Process Works
When StormGuard indicates a bear market, each of the portfolio’s underlying strategies selects a momentum leader from among a defensive set of candidate ETFs (such as bonds, treasuries, commodities, and others). StormGuard acts as Dual Defense’s first line of defense. In Bull Markets, each of the underlying momentum strategies within a portfolio select a momentum leader from among a set of candidate equity funds, which includes a broad “backstop” fund designed to act as a performance floor for the Strategy. We refer to the backstop’s defensive benefit as “TrendGuard,” the second line of defense of Dual Defense. Most Alpha Sheet portfolios incorporate the TRM (Tactical Risk Mitigation) Portfolio as its backstop.
Scott Juds, The Alpha Sheet's CEO, explains, “We believe momentum detection is the key to profitable fund selection for both bull and bear market holdings. The challenge is to see past market noise to select momentum leaders. In unusual equity markets like we’ve experienced from 2021 through 2023, momentum signals can become degraded by market noise resulting from policy-induced reversals. TrendGuard can then become an important defensive tool that seeks to provide a performance floor when longer term momentum can’t get traction. Together with StormGuard, this approach provides what we call Dual Defense.
