In a best case you ride it out for weeks on end make good profit and then
in a choppy market you break even or lose a bit. It would be great to see
how much the whipsaw days weeks hurt your performance If anyone can
post. Furthermore can you think of any other indicator to add to this to
have kept you out of the whipsaws.

connecting the MA 5 and 13 for use with cross overs may help a bit in the whip saws ?????

Try a short signal Chaikins Money Flow (1) but use it comparatively relative to CMF(1) CMF(6) so you can see when the money is leaving the position in both short and median timeframes.

That was a nice 20% kick in the ass from the high on VXX . I think TNA would be a better buy than UPRO
If you were to go long. My premarket indicator says so.

Agreed. Smallcaps and the R2K historically outperform the SPX - if there is a solid move up, smallcaps are the better play. Use IWM as a proxy and you can see how it usually outperforms SPY.

Over the long haul, midcap growth stocks seem to have been the best performers relative to the SPX since 1995 or so. You could play MWJ as well as TNA, but the volume is not as high and there may be a greater amount of slippage from the underlying index (IWR).

Yes thanx Kevin. Down 45% since the tout 2 weeks ago...
Thank the good lord i did not buy into this.
Is this what you meant by being responsible?

This is why i don't like to give all my trade secrets away.
The system seems to stop working,

I believe this indicator can be helpful, but with such a runup
that occurred in such a brief period of time in both SPY-VXX
that whipsaws were inevitable.
