Special Update

August 14, 2017

Welcome to a Bollinger Band Letter Special Update for the 14th of August 2017.

Our hosting service had a name server problem which prevented access to the Ice Breaker reports for a short time. The problem has been fixed. What follows is a quick Ice Breaker report to get you back up to date. The data is as of Friday August 11th.

Symbol, Open Position(s), two year total return, # of closed trades, average return

DIA, none, 29.9%, 17, 1.55%

IJR, two, 80.7%, 24, 2.50%

MDY, two, 57.9%, 20, 2.31%

QQQ, one, 87.1%, 24, 2.64%

SPY, two, 39.9%, 19, 1.78%

As you can see Ice Breaker continues to work quite well. Recently the best performers have been QQQ and IJR. I suspect that is because they have been more volatile than the others. If you have any question please feel free to contact us:

With the Value Line Geometric at 516.01, the Value Line Plan is out of the market with a Friday buy stop of 518.90.

The current allocations are:

50% US stocks, 10% International, 10% Yield and 30% Cash.

The ETF Program portfolio holdings:

Style (21): IUSG, 3, IWF, 2, IWB, 4.

Country (21): EWO, 1, EWS, 3, EWN, 2.

Sector (27): IXJ, 10, IGV, 6, IXG, 1.

Until next time, I wish you well.
