variable ratio plan

Definition

A variation on the constant ratio plan. The allocation of assets is modified in response to or in anticipation of changing conditions in the various markets. The goal of buying low and selling high is built into this strategy, but, like the constant dollar plan, prolonged movements in a given direction can harm returns.
