  • Abstract

    We will in this paper investigate if a Tactic Asset Allocation (TAA) decision tool such as the slope of a moving average on the asset return will result in a statistical higher profit for an investor compared to a simple random investment strategy. The result indicates that a moving average significantly increases our returns when it comes to index investments but it also helps us to avoid large drawdowns.
