The investment seeks the results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the iBoxx $ Liquid High Yield index.

HYG Weekly Trend Model
The Trend Model captured the bulk of the monthly dividends (about 10% annually) over the course of the past 15 months, while side-stepping two periods of price instability. Adding the capital gains to the dividend, the total return shown above was about 30%, or about 2% per month. That is not a gurantee of future performance, but it did get my attention and HYG is a viable candidate for inclusion in the Basket of Income.
