  1. So is the model currently at 75% long bonds and 25% cash? Is there a way to post what the current model is in at a given time?

    • The model will stay in bonds until 9/29/14, then it will switch to equity ETF’s ( SPY or QQQ ) until a minimum date of 1/16/2015 ( depending on component 3 calculation )
