"Riding The Wave" To Explosive Profits By Dr. Bart A. DiLiddo 

What Is "Riding The Wave"? 
The market goes up and down in a distinct pattern of waves. This pattern is readily shown by our exclusive indicator, the VectorVest Composite. Think of the money you could make if you rode the up and down movements of the market over and over again. Herein lies the key to "Riding the Wave" with VectorVest. The price of the VectorVest Composite tells us when the market is going up, and when it is going down. It has never failed to signal a major up or down trend in the market. How can we put this knowledge to work?

How To "Ride The Wave"
We can do so by buying good stocks long on an upturn and selling poor

stocks short on a downturn! VectorVest OnLine, our stock analysis and portfolio management system, tells us exactly which stocks to buy long and which to sell short.

We ran a back-test using our "Cash Cows" strategy in VectorVest OnLine to buy the top 10 stocks at the bottom of each wave, and then sold our long positions at the top of each wave. We used the resulting funds as collateral to short the bottom 10 stocks as found with the "Gravity" To get a taste of how well this strategy worked with our actual calls, we began with a $100,000 non-margin portfolio on January 22, 1999 and used the signal dates shown on the chart below.
