How trend investing

saved our members from the worst stock market crash in 30 years

On 12th March 2020, ‘Red Thursday’, when Bloomberg terminals around the world turned crimson, we at Saltydog didn’t have to panic. The Dow Jones Industrial Average suffered its worst one-day points loss ever and markets around the world were in freefall. The spread of the coronavirus and the collapse of the oil price had led to a massive sell-off, wiping trillions of dollars off the value of companies around the world.

In our demonstration portfolios we had already reduced our exposure to the equity markets to zero.
