50% S&P 500 Index, 50% 3-Month US T-Bills
When the S&P 500 Total Return Index closes below its 200 Day SMA for five consecutive business days, the exposure of the Index will be 50% to the S&P 500 Index and 50% to 3-Month US Treasury bills. 1From the 50/50 position, the Index will return to the equity position or change to the T-Bill position depending on the Equity Indicator or T-Bill Indicator.

The Index will not return to its 50/50 position unless the Equity Indicator is first triggered.
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.

Dividend yield is calculated using the gross dividend of a security (i.e., before any applicable withholding tax). Special cash dividends, unless they are paid for three consecutive years, and capital repayments are excluded from the dividend yield calculation.
Price to earning ratio (P/E ratio) is a fundamental measure used to determine if an investment is valued appropriately. Each holding’s P/E is the latest closing price divided by the latest fiscal year’s earnings per share. Negative P/E ratios are excluded from this calculation.
