AVOID STOCK MARKET CRASHES !!! * Do the MIPS Models Really Avoid MARKET CRASHES and Make Money in Down Markets ??
In thee Crash of 2008 our MIPS3/MF model was "live" and it performed extrememly well (up 121% while the SPY was down 40%). See the graph below from 4Q'07 thru 2Q'09. The MIPS3/MF trade signals and performance results are "verified" by TimerTrac.com. Also, the backeteted performance of our MIPS3 and MIPS4 models show that they would have done well in the other two of the last three "real" market crashes (1987 and 2000). In all cases, not only did the MIPS models avoid the 40-50% drops, but in each case the MIPS3/4 modles actually made money.
Warren Buffet's Three Rules of Investing are:
1) Make Money - Almost everyone makes money in up markets, hence the expression
"Don't Confuse Genius With a Bull Market".
2) Keep It - This is the tough one. Market crashes come when least expected, and
usually after months of high growth and false drops (Bear Traps). A very common stock
market cycle is 4-6 years up and 1-2 years down (the so-called "7 Year Market Cycle").
We have already had two of these "Crashes" since 2000, and it WILL certainly happen
3) Repeat Steps 1 and 2 - Almost every investor agrees that they would be way ahead
(maybe even wealthy) if they had not gotten annihilated every time the market decided
to drop 30-50%. Don't let that happen to you again; subscribe to MIPS now (you will
be thankful that you did).

To use MIPS you only need to read this introductory section (Really!)
MIPS offers stock market timing systems that use applied mathematics, tried and proven technical indicators, and pattern recognition algorithms in its quantitative models to help you make money when the stock market is trending up (by being long) AND to protect and grow your nest egg when it is going down (by being in an all cash position or by being short like hedge funds). The fundamental concepts of MIPS (Market Inflection Points Signals) are (a) to identify "Inflection Points" where the market changes direction and then (b) to identify and follow the resulting trends.

For students of the stock market and serious investors, this website explains: (a) why investors need a market timing system like MIPS, (b) what MIPS is, (c) how MIPS works, and (d) what kind of results the MIPS models produce.MIPS could indeed be the only trading system you will ever need to protect your investments by following the correct stock market trends.
And yes, it really is as simple to use as 1,2,3 Investors that want to get great returns (like those below) from investing in the stock market using MIPS, but do not need to fully understand the intricate details of the MIPS models, can stop reading this website now and start investing with MIPS by simply following steps 1,2,3 below.

THE NEW MIPS4/MF MODEL IS HERE NOW (and it is BETTER than MIPS3/MF) !!!
Life-Changing Website This is a very serious website for investors. In fact, for some it could be life-changing. Our site was designed to be educational, not just pretty or catchy. It describes our stock market signal timing system in detail and how it beats most other stock market timing systems that trade 5 times more often than MIPS. Read More >>
MIPS' Mission is to "Make
Money and Keep it".
We all know that the stock market moves in cycles.A very common cycle is one which goes up for 4-6 years and then comes crashing down over the next 1-2 years.Market crashes in 2000 and 2008 cost buy/hold investors most of their prior stock market gains both times. Read More >>
MIPS3/MF Performance Summary
MIPS3.org Performance Trading 1/2 each of SPY/SH and SSO/SH (2007 - 2014)
CAGR = 28.68% Max DD = -16.8%
As can be seen in the graph above, MIPS3/MF has proven its ability to accomplish its objectives for stock market timing.During this 9 year period, the MIPS3/MF's relative performance against its benchmark was:
SPY (S&P 500 index), from $100k up to $175k
MIPS3/MF (trading 1/2 each SPY/SH and SSO/SH), from $100k up to $750k
MIPS3/MF with Buy/Short SPY (2003-2014)
MIPS4/MF+ Trading SPY 1.5x Long and 1x Short
MIPS4/MF+ Performance 2007-6/30/15
Market timing performance results using MIPS4/MF+ with a long/short strategy, trading SPY
On short signals, investors could buy the inverse ETF (SH) instead of shorting SPY
(not exactly the same as buying/shorting SPY, but close)
8-1/2 Year Annual Compounded Growth=+30.6%, Max Drawdown=-10.6%
Most individual investors are taught to simply buy and hold, even in down markets. They are also told that (a) no one can time the market and (b) they should never consider short trades. And somehow, the SEC made it illegal for "retail" fund managers to execute short orders in their portfolios. But, everyone must have forgotten to tell the hedge fund managers this, as they have been making billions of dollars for the last 35 years.
MIPS Timing Systems, LLC, was formed to provide stock market timing signals for individual investors to help them make money in both bull markets and bear markets like the high-profile professional money managers do (that is, like hedge fund managers that can trade long and short as they see fit).
The MIPS Timing Systems models analyze the stock market and provide information to our members when the models issue buy, short, and/or cash "signals". The MIPS trading system uses the S&P 500 Exchange Traded Fund (ETF), the SPY Index Fund, to represent the market and uses SPY in one of its index trading strategies. MIPS is not for high frequency online trading or for day traders.
Most of the information regarding the stock market direction provided herein is derived from quantitative models and algorithms owned and developed by MIPS Timing Systems, LLC. These are made up of numerous technical indicators, some of which are published and some of which were developed in-house. These technical indicators are looking for new stock market trends and the exact time that the market changes its trend line from up-to-down or vice versa (i.e., an "inflection point" in the stock market trend line). This provides our members with new tools for timing the stock market and to better manage their stock market investments.
