Why Sector Rotation sometimes not working

·         Not using stop orders. For simplicity, use 5% for most stocks and 8% for volatile sectors. I prefer stops less than the support line to reduce the chance of stopping out due to normal stock price fluctuation. Recommend trailing stops (based on current price) for winning stocks.

·         Not timing the market. Include SH or any contra ETFs but not as good as timing the market.
·         Not considering different phases of the market cycle. Some sectors are more favorable than others in different stages of the market cycle.

·         Not disciplined. If you stick with a proven strategy, it will work in the long term.

·         When a sector is in full value, it will be switch to another one with less value. Beware, the market is driven by institution investors.
