March Portfolio Update

Click To Enlarge
We saw a minor correction in the stock markets during the first couple of weeks in March.  While commodities are still down from the highs, they have not broken the upward trend.

My attempt to play technology stocks as they come down from their high has not paid off, yet. Seasonally, April/May is not the best time to own them, so that opportunity may still exist.  This also tends to be the case for Canadian financial companies. 

Meanwhile I would not bet against the energy and materials sectors at this time of year, although the energy sector does not look like a great buy to me since it has been without any real correction since late last summer.
Three month return for TSX @ Mar. 31, 2011 = 5.21 percent
Three month return for Basic Timing Model using XIU = 4.27 percent
Three month return for Advanced Timing Model (my returns) = -3.34 percent
Money for charity = $411.27
