Hot Funds This Year

Through August the top 25 mutual fund gainers tend to be energy and natural resources.
Top dog is the Guinn Atkin Energy fund (never heard of it)
Close behind are the FIDO's FSENX and FSESX.* Just below the FIDO's is the Vanguard energy fund.* The top 10 fund gains for the year to date range from 42 to 59 %. Most have a impressive 3 and 5 year record.
The FIDOs let you in for $2500 and allow $250 add ons.* They price every hour and the holding period is only 30 days.* They have been a DCA dream as the buy on the dips plan has worked great. I've used the Bollinger bands approach to track the XLE/OIH (both correlate with the FIDO's) and time purchases of the FIDO's.
Of course what works today may be a disaster tomorrow, but energy continues to look good
