Abstract

This paper presents the results of several relative strength (momentum) tactical asset allocation strategies tested in a real world portfolio management setting. Monte Carlo simulations are used to determine the possible range of outcomes if a portfolio manager selects a subset of high relative strength (momentum) asset classes over time. A testing protocol that rebalances the portfolio on a continuous basis is also used to simulate real world portfolio management practices.
