I FIXED THE 2ND FILTER SO YOU CAN RUN IT, IT WAS NOT THE NUMBER OF VARIABLES, BUT THAT I DREW ON PLOT OF ANOTHER THAT WAS DEEMED COMPLICATED.

AND NO DO NOT SELL YOUR LONG AT THE VSHORT, BUT SELL YOUR LONG PER YOUR OWN RISK MANGEMENT.

THE VSHORT IS FOR SHORTING AND COVER WHEN YOU DEEM FIT.

Got it. Thanks. If I test it, I'll use the same exit time (based on my current price only filter). Kevin

Kevin,

Could the filter be converted to a weekly filter to be used for example for determining when to get in and out of one's 401K selections? I added the column price_osc but it's still showing the daily price_osc reading not the weekly.



Fetcher[*KEVIN'S PURELY BASED ON PRICE FILTER*/

/*Close must be above the highest 5 day low from three days ago for a BUY signal*/

/*That's it. No indicators used on this one - based solely on two price points*/

/*create threshold as a variable*/
set{var1, high 5 day low}
set{var2, var1 3 days ago}
set{threshold, var2+0.01}

/*close must be above threshold*/
set{BUY, count(close > threshold,1)}
set{SELL, count(close < threshold,1)}

/*create variables for graphical display*/
set{trigger, close}
set{price_osc, trigger - threshold}

/*apply to index surrogates*/
Apply to Symlist
(AGG,SPY,EFA,IWM,IWD,IWB,IWF,CWI,IWW,IWZ,IGM,BA,USO)

and chart-display is weekly
and chart-time 1 year


/*draw threshold and trigger on price plot*/
draw threshold on plot price
draw trigger on plot price
draw price line at threshold

/*draw BUY and SELL signals*/
draw BUY
Draw SELL on plot BUY
draw price_osc line at 0
add column separator

add column price_osc
add column separator
add column BUY
add column separator
add column SELL

do not draw MA(250)
and do not draw MA(50)
and do not draw MA(10)
and do not draw MA(20)
and do not draw MA(200)

You just need to add the term WEEKLY in front of the defined variables

Fetcher[

/*WEEKLY PRICE FILTER*/

/*create threshold as a variable*/
set{var1, WEEKLY high 5 WEEK low}
set{var2, var1 3 WEEKS ago}
set{threshold, var2+0.01}

/*close must be above threshold*/
set{BUY, count(close > threshold,1)}
set{SELL, count(close < threshold,1)}

/*create variables for graphical display*/
set{trigger, close}
set{price_osc, trigger - threshold}

/*apply to index surrogates*/
Apply to Symlist
(AGG,SPY,EFA,IWM,IWD,IWB,IWF,CWI,IWW,IWZ,IGM,BA,USO)

and chart-display is weekly
and chart-time 1 year


/*draw threshold and trigger on price plot*/
draw threshold on plot price
draw trigger on plot price
draw price line at threshold

/*draw BUY and SELL signals*/
draw BUY
Draw SELL on plot BUY
draw price_osc line at 0
add column separator

add column price_osc
add column separator
add column BUY
add column separator
add column SELL

Thanks Kevin - I lowered the weekly thresholds from 5 and 3 to 3 and 1. I have a 15 day waiting period before I can purchase the same fund once I sell it. What would you use? Still the 5 & 3 or would you lower the thresholds if you could make more frequent trades?

Thanks,
Dave

Are you using them as a screen, or just want to see them on the chart?

to see them, just add the lines

draw MACD(8,34,8)
draw stochastic(8,5,3) %D
draw stochastic(8,5,3) %K

you may also want to see their values - if so, just replace the "draw" command with "add column"

I would suggest comparing the fund performance over the past year based on the entry and exit signals generated by both settings. Equity growth is the only thing that matters, right?

Just an observation - most of your ETFs all trade EXACTLY the same as SPY, regardless of if they are R2K, R1K, value, growth, or anything else. You may want to have some diversification in this portfolio just in case.

Consider GLD, DBA, or SLV as inflation hedges - possibly WIP as well.
