Track Record 2016
Our 17th annual, unabridged, cumulative, fully transparent Track Record presents the 2016 year-ahead forecasting reliability which each IFI client received for 182 strategically definitive investibles across all 5 major asset classes and subclasses globally – proof that markets can be persistently and reliably forecast (better than a 50/50 coin toss) using a disciplined, all-price-based inter-market method. IFI delivered another good forecasting performance in 2016, with an overall success rate of 61%, close to our 16-year average of 65%. We also out-performed top Wall Street strategists for the 13th time in 16 years. Three of our four model portfolios out-performed benchmarks, as we correctly forecasted U.S. equities out-performing bonds and bills, the up-shift in the Treasury yield curve, and the rich returns seen on the bonds of Brazil, Greece, and Russia. Plus: Annual & Compounded Returns on IFI’s 4 Model Portfolios vs. Benchmarks, 2003-2016; and IFI’s December 2015 year-ahead forecasts for 2016 compared to Wall Street Strategists and actual results. For the 17th year, this published Track Record demonstrates our ongoing commitment to being paid only for being right.
