The Meb Faber Timing Model

Someone on Stockbee linked the Med Faber Timing Model. It is an intensely researched moving average system for portfolio timing. It is similar to my timing system, but with less signals as it is long term, simple moving average(10 month SMA). I am planning to implement this for my retirement account timing, while still being in the top fund available in my account.

Instead of just the S&P 500 I use COMPQX, DJ-30, DWCF, NYSE, RUT-X, and SP-500. If two of these are showing a sell signal I sell, the same in reverse for reentering. I am planning to read his books and will potentially alter this as needed. I still stay in the best performing fund, based on my analysis, in my retirement account.
