How does the "ETF Timing System" Work?

    We first select an ETF that is technically poised for price appreciation. We issue an ETF Alert via email and/or text message. In the ETF Alert, we will notify our members to Sell the current ETF position and go to a Cash position or use your Cash position and Buy the next ETF. Once the trade is placed, all you need to do is wait for the next ETF Alert. There is only one active ETF at any given time. It doesn't get any easier than this. Here is a ~sample ETF Alert~.

    If you would like to trade the ETF that we have selected, then you will need to go to your online brokerage account and place the trade. How many shares to purchase is up to you. Like any service that involves stocks, there is risk.

I have never invested before, where do I start?

    There are numerous resources on the Internet designed to help educate new investors. We strongly suggest you visit the Securites Exchange Commission's web site. This page is a great place to start.

What is the general length of time of a trade?

    Based on our statistics, we are averaging about 26 trades per year. This equates to about two trades a month.

What is the average percentage increase of a trade?

    The results of each trade will be different. Based on our statistics, we are averaging about +5% per trade.

How does the system perform in bearish markets?

    Year 2022 was a bear year for the stock market, which went down -19% (S&P 500 Index). During that year, we profited +25%. Of course, we can not guarantee that the system will continue to be that profitable in bear markets, but so far, it has done quite well.

What is the purpose and objective of your service?

    Our service is designed to consistently outperform the buy-and-hold strategy of investing. Our primary objective is to help investors increase their savings in a low risk / high reward manner in both bullish and bearish markets.

As soon as I become a member, do I execute a trade alert immediately?

    This is entirely up to you and your professional advisor for a final decision. In general, the answer is yes.

Does your company also trade the ETFs you post on the members page?

    Yes, there will be times when we trade the same stock funds.

Who provides the signal changes?

    Our chief technical chart analyst and developer of the service is Robert W. Dillon, Ph.D. Robert holds a masters and doctorate degree in the fields of Geology and Geophysics from the Missouri University of Science & Technology. Robert worked for a major oil company (1980-83) and the US Geological Survey for 15 years (1984-99). However, due to his financial success in trading the stock market, he became semi-retired at the age of 41 and switched careers to provide guidance to Federal employees. He has over 30 years of experience trading the stock market and specializes in technical analysis. Robert has a vast amount of experience in interpretation of highly complex charts. He is also a master fingerstyle guitarist. The combination of his scientific and creative abilities with the stock market using technical analysis, gives him a pure analytical advantage over traditional strategies used by money managers.

When was ETF Timing developed and made available to the public?

    ETF Timing is a spin-off of "TSPFundTrading.com." Due to the success of ETF Timing on our parent site "TSPFundTrading.com" we decided to spin-off this service as it own entity and make it available for everyone. Therefore, when you sign up to the service, notice the parent company name "TSPFundTrading.com" at the top of the Order Form.

What is your privacy policy?

    Our company is committed to protecting your privacy while using our site. This is explained in detail in our Private Policy page.

Does your company offer any free trial periods?

    We do not offer any free trials. We do offer a full money back guarantee within the first 48 hours after you become a member if you are unsatistifed with our service. The most important reason why we do not offer free trials is because our system is designed to slowly beat the market. We do not want to give the impression that this a get rich quick scheme. Our system requires patience. There are a lot of other web sites that virtually promise quick returns. Please be cautious of those systems.

Will your company manage my account?

    At this time, we do not manage any personal accounts for our members, and probably will not in the future.

After I become a member is there confirmation of this?

    Once authorization is approved, you will receive our confirmation response via e-mail. You will then be able to log into the members page with the latest ETF alert!

Once I become a member, can I change my email address in the future?

    Yes, just send an e-mail to alerts@etftiming.com and include your old and new e-mail addresses.
