TimerTrac.com Annual Champions Throttle Major Indexes in 2007: Markets Performance Anemic Next to Active Managers' 30% to 57%

Share Article

http://www.TimerTrac.com, the leading third-party benchmarking service that objectively reports market timing performance based on daily market recommendations, announced today its top annual performers for trading exchange-traded funds (ETF's) in the Nasdaq 100 (QQQQ), Russell 2000 (RUT), S&P 500 (SPY), and the Dow Jones 30 Composite (DIA).

If you bought and held the indexes for 2007, you would, for the most part, have ended up in the plus column, but what opportunities would have been lost!

    Topping TimerTrac.com's annual list of nearly 700 equity market-timing strategies that provide daily market recommendations based on buy, cash, or sell short recommendations was Nasdaq Wizard (http://www.nasdaqwizard.com) and IndexTrades.net (http://www.indextrades.net). For 2007, following Nasdaq Wizard's recommendations for trading the Nasdaq 100 with the QQQQ's would have yielded 49.97% (vs. the NDX 100's annual standing of 18.67%) and for the Russell 2000, following Nasdaq Wizard would have yielded 56.65% (vs. the RUT index, -2.75%).

IndexTrades.net significantly beat both the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones 30 performance for the year: 37.54% (vs. the S&P's 3.53%), and for the Dow, IndexTrades.net reaped 30.59% (vs. the DJIA's 6.43%).

"If you bought and held the indexes for 2007, you would, for the most part, have ended up in the plus column, but what opportunities would have been lost!" said Dave Garrett, principal at http://www.TimerTrac.com. "Those facing retirement who are looking to preserve capital as well as enjoy significant returns are recognizing the severe limitations of passive investing. With http://www.TimerTrac.com, expert and successful market analysts are already showing their work for investors to make educated decisions on how to trade with the market instead of against it."

Continued Garrett, "We congratulate Nasdaq Wizard and IndexTrades.net as well as other investment strategists who have had a highly successful year, and are pleased to have them participate in http://www.TimerTrac.com during this time of extreme market volatility."

Although Nasdaq Wizard and IndexTrades.net took the top spots for 2007, over two dozen investments strategists reported on http://www.TimerTrac.com beat the market by significant margins, many showing double-digit returns when compared to the S&P 500's and DJIA's lackluster performance for the year. In 2007, http://www.TimerTrac.com added 100 strategies by investment analysts that have agreed to be tracked, increasing the number of tracked strategies to nearly 700. These analysts send next-day market recommendations after market close for the major equity indexes that http://www.TimerTrac.com ranks, charts and for which it provides statistical performance daily.
