This is what ETF PowerRatings are all about. Between 2003 and 2009, nearly 8 out of every 10 top-rated ETFs made money in the days after receiving its PowerRatings upgrade to 9 or 10. A trader who used ETF PowerRatings to trade top-rated ETFs during this period would have been profitable through a variety of market conditions – from the low volatility bull market from 2003 to 2007, to the high volatility bear market decline of 2008 and the new bull market that began in 2009.

Like all of the quantified research from Larry Connors, founder and CEO of and author of the book, High Probability ETF Trading, and Connors Research, ETF PowerRatings are based on thousands of simulated ETF (exchange-traded fund) trades – going back 2003, in the case of PowerRatings, going back to 2003. And although past performance is no guarantee of future results, the quantified, six-year track record of the highest rated ETFs – those that earned PowerRatings of 9 or 10 – is like nothing short term ETF traders have seen before.
