$28 / month is for growth models. Income models are cheaper. That's the subscription cost to receive the signals of what to buy and sell. The actual buy and sell is done by the user, hence the commission costs. Interactive Brokers has the best commissions, and it's a great brokerage, with excellent forex fees and rate for US models.
I recommend the model that is tailored to your goals and risk tolerance. Don't chase performance. Growth models, like Value, Sentiment and Momentum, are focused on capital appreciation, but they are also more volatile than income models. Also remember that a model cannot always outperform, since the models are only driven by these rules, while the market has other factors and a higher exposure to resources and financials.tribe1689 wrote: 2) Which one model would you recommend for total highest return.

Notifications are done via email and the holdings are also available once you login. The FAQ on the Trading strategies has the details on how you can be notified via SMS too. Correct, it's as simple as getting the info of what to buy and sell (like we do with this Graham model), and then you buy or sell accordingly. Some models are equally weighted while others are weighted according to other criteria, so you will also get the weight target, which should be followed accordingly. The weight represents the percentage of the amount that should be invested on that stock. It will also tell you if there is a percentage in cash.tribe1689 wrote: 3) You mentioned you'll add info in the future on how we get notified on when/what to buy. In the mean-time, is it as simple as getting emails and then just making a sale/purchase? Or too complicated to give a quick answer?
Correct. None of the models have a high turnover - all models were designed with this objective, since I too have a full time job and don't want to spend time with frequent trades.tribe1689 wrote: 4) It sounds like Value, Sentiment and Momentum (Canada) you're doing about 4 total trades per week or so, based on the stats? So not too labour-intensive, I guess.
Past returns do not warrant or predict future returns. Simulation (and live sample) shows period of underperformance at times, so give time to work it out in the long term. Hence the focus on the objective of the model, to have that aligned with the rules that the model looks for.tribe1689 wrote: I guess my savings are large enough that I can throw 10% in, and if the returns are what's stated, that 10% will quickly grow to be a lot higher. And quite frankly, I'm not sure what conventional ETFs, etc to invest in right now since everything seems to be peaking and there's not much that isn't at close to all-time highs.
