The Basic Subscription:
PWA 500 Timer

The basic subscription is titled, "PWA 500 Timer" and is structured to be suitable for use with mutual funds held in IRA, 401-K, 403-B accounts, or mutual funds held outside of tax advantaged programs.

  • Mutual funds often have limits about how many switches can be made in a 90 day time frame.
  • Therefore the PWA 500 Timer program is constructed to yield fewer switches, capture larger price moves, and yield an excellent return.

PWA 500 Timer uses S&P 500 Index data:

  • It is ideal for timing stock funds indexed to the S&P 500.
  • Since the S&P 500 Index is considered to be a standard measure of the overall stock market, it can also be useful for timing other funds containing large, established, so called "blue chip" company stocks, or what are called "Large Cap" funds (meaning the companies the fund buys are large companies.)

Using the PWA 500 Timer:

  • We recommend using mutual funds indexed to the S&P 500.
  • You will want to choose a fund management company that provides access to a money market fund and permits telephone switching between funds.
  • PWA uses S&P 500 Index data to construct the chart, and it is updated daily with the closing price.
  • You will have any-time access to the PWA 500 Timer chart on this website, and we recommend taking five minutes every day to check the chart.
  • When the chart shows a buying opportunity, you will make a judgment about exactly when to switch funds from the money market to your stock fund.
  • When the chart shows a selling opportunity, you will make a judgment about exactly when to switch funds from the stock fund to your money market fund.

PWA 500 Timer Price:

  • A PWA 500 Timer annual subscription is priced at $180.00.
  • This amount is less than the cost of one cup of Starbucks coffee per week.
  • PWA will do a great deal more for your net worth than will one cup of coffee each week.

Control of the PWA 500 Timer chart:

  • Subscribers will not be able to manipulate the appearance of the chart.
  • Control of the chart parameters of the chart remains with our staff.
  • Note: Subscriptions are not renewed automatically. You will receive subscription lapse notices by email one month prior to your subscription expiration.
