Try the Chaikin Power Gauge™ now
The Chaikin Power Gauge™ is built from the factors active managers use to diversify portfolios and seek enhanced returns across market cycles. Marc Chaikin, stock market expert and inventor of the Chaikin Power Gauge™, discusses how and why he constructed the model.
Single factors have been highly cyclical from year to year, and timing can be a difficult endeavor. Combining multiple factors creates a more diversified solution to potentially enhance returns over time.

The high beta factor is represented by the S&P 500 High Beta Index, which measures the performance of 100 constituents in the S&P 500 that are most sensitive to changes in market returns. The low volatility factor is represented by the S&P 500 Low Volatility Index, which measures performance of the 100 least volatile stocks in the S&P 500. The momentum factor is represented by the S&P 500 Momentum Index, which is designed to measure the performance of securities in the S&P 500 universe that exhibit persistence in their relative performance. The value factor is represented by the S&P 500 Value Index, which measures value stocks using three factors: the ratios of book value, earnings, and sales to price.

Combining multiple factors may help create a more diversified solution, as factor returns generally are not highly correlated with one another.
