Comparison of our 2020 Matador™ model and past iterations of the CrystalBull Trading Indicator

The CrystalBull Matador™ uses a proprietary model to determine strength and weakness in the market, and to identify entry and exit points.  The objective of this indicator is to reduce the "buy-high-sell-low" tendencies of the typical investor.

From December 31, 2003 through March 25, 2020, following the CrystalBull Matador™ would have, hypothetically, produced a Total Return 50 times that of a Buy-and-Hold strategy.
