STOCK MARKET TIMING SERVICES
FOR INDIVIDUAL INVESTORS
MIPS is a stock market timing model that sends signals to its members via email at the end of the days when the market changes direction from up-to-down or down-to-up (Signal Date). The individual investor trades on this signal (LONG or SHORT or CASH) on the open of the market on the following day (Trade Date). Members then simply keep the position that they acquired on the trade date until the next Signal email from MIPS. It really is that simple. Click the What to Trade button (top left) to learn what to do when you get a "Signal Change" email from the MIPS model that you are follwing.
MIPS Trading Profiles
This section explains how to select and trade with the MIPS models:
(1) which MIPS models to use,
(2) which stock market trading strategy to use (buy/short or buy/cash), and
(3) which ETFs to trade (SPY, QQQ, IWN, or DIA, or a combo of these at user diecretion)
- Unexperienced investors should tsimply rade SPY
INDIVIDUAL INVESTORS ($39/month)
Most of the MIPS models (MIPS2, MIPS3, MIPS4) were developed for Individual Investors and are covered in detail below. Our MIPS3 model is the #1 Ranked model on TimerTrac.com between 2007-2020:
MIPS4 is a slightly better model than MIPS3, but has not been active ("verified") as far back in time as MIPS3.
INDIV/PRO INVESTORS ($59/month)
Our model that is used mostly by aggressive individual investors and RIAs (professional investors) is MIPS/Nitro.
This model is explained under the "Nitro/Signal" tab on our main menu or by clicking on:
- MIPS/Nitro is our best model.
TRADING FREQUENCIES FOR INDIVIDUAL INVESTORS
Stock market trading can be VERY complex or very simply depending on how investors elect to trade. At MIPS, we stay in the low-to-medium frequency trading range, and leave high frequency "day-trading" to the pros. Timing models that do venture into higher frequency trading usually create more work for their clients and can get chewed up by the pros. The MIPS models issue an average of 12-15 trades/year (Intermediate Trends).
MIPS MARKET TIMING MODELS
The MIPS models were designed and developed to be medium-frequency stock market trading models with a buy/short/cash strategy, trading ETFs on the next day's Open following each MIPS signal.
MIPS/Nitro5 (our best model)

Our "flagship" model is MIPS4, which is a slightly faster trading model than MIPS3.
- MIPS4 is an offshoot of MIPS3, but uses algorithms from all MIPS models.
- MIPS4 is more "predictive" than MIPS3,
- MIPS4's results are also very "smooth".
For this reason, we feel comfortable using the MIPS4 signals to trade leveraged ETFs.
Our "Core" model, MIPS3 was introduced to the public in Nov. 2005, and is the #1 Ranked model on TimerTrac.com between 2007-2018
The "core" algorithms in MIPS3 include applied mathematics, pattern recognition, artificial intelligence (self correcting), and common sense to identify changes in direction in the market (Inflexion Points) and possibly a new intermediate-term trend (hence our name Market Inflexion Point Signals or MIPS). This model trades an "average" of 12-15 trades/year, but with a range of 5-20 trades/year in any given year. The "core" algorithms in MIPS3 are in all of the other MIPS models, except MIPS1.
We realize that there are many investors who do not want to (or can't) trade as often as a medium-frequency model requires. So, we offer another model that could be more appealing to these investors. Our other model is the low-frequency trading model (MIPS2) which trades an average of about 6 times/year, but is not quite as effective as the MIPS models above.
Our low-frequency stock market trading model was developed for investors who do not want to (or can't) make over 5-6 trades/year. MIPS2 trades an average of 6 trades/year (but occasionally can trade 2-3 times in any one month). When coupling MIPS2 with a buy/short strategy, it will produce good results, but not quite as good as MIPS3 or MIPS4. Over time, the MIPS2 low frequency trading service should produce results that are at least 65% as good as the MIPS3 model (but 2-3 times better than buy-and-hold), with only 1/2 as many trades.
