It’s tough to make money in flat markets, and it can be frustrating when our indicators give enough mixed signals to prevent us from taking a solid bullish or bearish stance. But our methodology has been painstakingly developed over years of studying investment research. And our philosophy centers around making objective investment decisions and managing risk. Reality is that being right can sometimes be boring when markets fail to make decisive moves in one direction or another.
