There have been studies on 10 years of data on the usual 10-20 or so markets that these folks
trade.......50/200 xover should be looked at in the context of your available choices..



I think Covels book is the source of data that I am referring to.

Ah gee, you're right. It is a lot easier than I thought. Thank you. I'll now proceed to PRINT out the ENTIRE user guide like I should have instead of just reading bits of it on my screen. Thanks again to those who took some time with a newbie.

Taking the time to go through this will help immensely. The start looking at some of the filter code posted in the forums (especially Chetron and TRO's filters). I learned essentially all of the filter code I know by reading their posts several times each.

I look forward to seeing some code posted - don't be concerned if you get stuck trying to do something. Post the code with your question and people here will help.

Just the 12 sma on a monthly chart will keep you in and out of the major moves with few whipsaws. The 10 sma not as good.

The 26MA and 52MA cross on a weekly chart will help keep you out of severe trouble also (my personal favorite)

Can a filter be written to duplicate this? It looks like it would have a nice use when applied to a restrictive 401K account

no monthly data available. You might want to try a moving 52 week average:

Fetcher[

set{BUY, count(weekly close is above weekly MA(52),1)}
set{SELL, count(weekly close is below weekly MA(52),1)}

chart-display is weekly
chart-time is 1 year

draw weekly MA(52)
draw BUY
Draw SELL on plot BUY
add column BUY
add column SELL
add column weekly MA(52) {trigger}

Although I like the moving average crossover here for a shorter term trading strategy:

Fetcher[

set{BUY, count(weekly VMA(10)is above weekly VMA(16),1)}
set{SELL, count(weekly VMA(10) is below weekly VMA(16),1)}

chart-display is weekly
chart-time is 1 year

draw weekly VMA(10)
draw weekly VMA(16)
draw BUY
Draw SELL on plot BUY

add column VMA(10)
add column VMA(16)
add column BUY
add column SELL
