How do you trade while looking at a weekly data grab. It just seems like Friday/Monday are going to be pivot points.

When would you enter. I was following your filter looking at the weekly IFT(2,1) and it was below -1.00 all week until today and it then popped above .79 as well as earlier in the week? Backtesting looks terrific, but that is because you already have the complete weekly data.

It just seems that trading on a weekly look is almost like trading with incomplete data... unless I am missing something?

You basically can really never catch the crossover as it pops... just like this week on TVIX - all week below -1.0 and then bam the last 3 days and it now states the crossover happened 3 days ago? I'm missing something here

I like the idea here... However the lag with the weekly Fisher you really miss the pops, we really have no idea what volatility is going to do day by day. Look at an anti VIX like XIV a guy could just play the crossovers. For instance if XIV crosses below VIX go long TVIX or vis versa. If XIV crosses above VIX go long XIV. On a 5 day chart It looks like you'd catch the pop a lot sooner. Compare them on a 20 day or 30 day chart you get a better idea of the overall trend but I can't see my self going all in as soon as a crossover happens on a 5 day, I'd want something else to confirm besides keeping track of overall market sentiment. Ideas?

The weekly is great for hindsight or watching a trend. I added the daily IFT for a current look. I'll admit to being clueless on if the RSA or Weighted MA should be changed from 2,1.

ADD COLUMN IFT(2,1)
DRAW IFT(2,1)

Guys, the weekly is not bad if you couple it with other indicators.
It's not like it's a yearly or a quarterly, or even a monthly. It's not perfect but it's better than a daily.
If you went long Tvix on the switch, you would be up 30%. You can sell and make as much as some do
in 4 years, or scale out, selling 18% at a time and preserve wins. No reason not to make a minimum of 100% a year.
