Relative Strength Sector Rotation
Has anyone played with this? Farber released a white paper testing this concept with great results.
Several online signal sellers are selling 23% - 700% gain in past performance.

I'm a Fan of covel's work on Trend following and soon plan to start a trend followng ETF account ona basket of ballanced and uncorrelated ETF's. I used a simple moving average and it worked well when I followed the plan. Accumulate in the positive moving average profile and sell all on the cross. Begin accumulating the inverse.
There may be a way to blend the two. Only hold the items above their moving average from the basket that are also scoring highly in relative strength ?
How about a basket of value, deep out of money sector ETF's, a contrarian play...
