Does Priceratio as plotted on the upperband and the lower bands represent the spy or the stock?

Look at the code - it represents the RATIO of the stock to the SPY. When the RATIO moves more than 2 SD below the mean, the trade is triggered.

I am new to the forum and have been following this thread for a few days (many thanks to Kevin for this thread and all the wonderful work that he so generously shares).

Hi Novacane32000,
"I looked at 1652 trades over about 8 yrs and 140 would have hit a 10% stop. Yes that would have saved you the pain of some 20 of those trades that lost over 18% ( a few over 30%)--- but holding until the zscore trigger exit on those 140 trades resulted in only a net loss of -6.49% instead of the guaranted 10% loss."

You posted this on page 30. Thanks to you for all the hard work that lead to generate those numbers. Would it be possible to share the other end of the spectrum too? Like how many of those 1652 trades were 10% or more in profit?

24 gained 10% to 14.99%
2 gained 15% to 19.99%
1 gained 20% to 29.99%
1 gained 49%

Those 28 trades make up 1.62% of all trades over almost 10 years.
Based on the backtest results I found a 7% profit stop works well with this system. It does not beat the original exit rules that Kevin gave as far as overall performance. As Kevin has stated-the best exit is 16 days or the zscore exit above -1. Also,there is no profit stop that improves performance (though I wish there was).

The 7% profit stop gives me a little more "peace of mind". I know few trades will gain much more than 7% and many get to 7% then drop causing you to kick yourself for not taking profits when you had them.

I have a hard time dealing with drawdowns so this is how I choose to trade the system.
