The Consumer switch Strategy: Invest in Consumer Discretionary From October 28 th until April 23 rd and then you rotate into the Staples sector for the remainder of the year. Since 1990 if you stayed in the S&P you would have made about 200%; if you stayed in Consumer Discretionary or Staples you would have made approximately the same. But going back and forth you make approximately 1100%. Long Staples XLP-N ; Short Discretionary XLY-N.Later on don’t reverse them- close both.

There is a seasonality trend for consumer staples to move up between June and October. This is a safe place to be. Last year, when the market was selling off heavily, this was rising. Sell late October or early November or anywhere near $24, whichever comes first.
