To generate higher return, portfolio is comprised of stocks and other financial instruments when market is expected to go up. In other times, when market is expected to go down, most of the stocks are liquidated and cash balance is held. Proper market timing and utilization of short term attractive investment opportunities are the keys to provide excellent return to BetaSMART investors.
