This graph illustrates the Trendpilot methodology based on hypothetical movements in a benchmark index and its 200 business day simple moving average. This does not demonstrate historical data and is not an indication of how any Index or Trendpilot methodology will perform in the future. If the conditions mentioned in the graph are not satisfied, the trend of the benchmark index will be the same as the trend of the benchmark index on the immediately preceding business day. (1) Any trend change will become effective at the market open on the second business day after the indicator for the change is triggered.
