While the performance of the stock market in 2014 seems to suggest that investor perception may be improving, we would however need to test the validity of reported performance numbers prior to making any investment calls The markets continue to be subject to regulatory interference (notably, the continued imposition of a trading band/circuit breakers), thereby limiting the effectiveness of advanced technical analysis.
Considering that technical analysis remains a valid component of our decision making process, required to ensure long term returns, we utilize a proprietary factor model which identifies securities by ranking them based on a number of key factors. These include fundamentals, technical performance as well as other qualitative factors such as management pedigree and government policy.
