About Us 2017-09-11T20:16:14+00:00

Our History…

clearTREND was first developed in the summer of 2011 in conjunction with Appleton Group, Skyline Technologies, Microsoft Azure, and Xignite Data Services.  Coding was completed in the following November and was launched in January of 2012 as a solution exclusively for the managed portfolios and private clients of Appleton Group in Appleton, Wisconsin.

As the 17th oldest separate account manager to exclusively use exchange-traded funds, Appleton Group has extensive experience and success in offering risk-managed, tactical strategies.  Nearing the 10th anniversary of their founding, Appleton Group saw an opportunity to create its own trend analysis engine that offered historically similar downside protection but offered improved upside participation during periods of sustained market advances, superior analytics (success rates, cumulative returns, draw-down reductions, historic trade-by-trade history, security optimization, etc.) as well as the potential for future commercialization.

In September 2017, clearTREND was spun off as a separately company in partnership with Skyline Technologies.
