NAAIM Active Investing Strategy Competition

NAAIM Exposure Index
The NAAIM Exposure Index represents the average exposure to US Equity markets reported by our members. It is important to recognize that the NAAIM Exposure Index is not predictive in nature and is of little value in attempting to determine what the stock market will do in the future. The primary goal of most active managers is to manage the risk/reward relationship of the stock market and to stay in tune with what the market is doing at any given time. As the name indicates, the NAAIM Exposure Index provides insight into the actual adjustments active risk managers have made to client accounts over the past two weeks.
NAAIM Indicator Wall
For members only – The goal is to provide members with a vast array of stock market indicators, which will be updated weekly. The Indicator Wall will include readings and explanations of indicators and/or models in the areas of price/trend, momentum, key price levels, overbought/sold readings, sentiment, monetary, economic, inflation, and market cycles. The NAAIM Indicator Wall is updated on a weekly basis.
NAAIM Dynamic Asset Allocation Model
The model is meant to show how one might incorporate the indicator boards. The model is designed to provide the current equity allocation for a balanced tactical asset allocation model with a base target of 60/40 stocks/bonds.
The overall intent of the model is to keep equity exposure in line with current conditions.
Updated weekly, the Dynamic Asset Allocation Model is for illustrative and informational purposes only and does not in any way represent an endorsement by NAAIM or an investment recommendation. The model is merely an EXAMPLE of how indicators can be grouped to create a guide to market exposure based on the inputs from multiple indicators/models.
