BUT ISN'T SOMETHING GOING ON WITH 4/40 TO 4/50
I MEAN 10 PROFITABLE CROSSES THAT USE 4 AND THE SECONDARY IS EVERY LINE FOR 10 POINTS????
+++++++

IF THE 4/40 CROSS IS PROFITABLE AND THE 4/50 CROSS IS PROFITABLE, IT IS VERY LIKELY THAT ALL EMAs IN BETWEEN ARE ALSO GOING TO BE PROFITABLE.

JUST TO HELP NARROW THE FIELD OF RESULTS A BIT ...

Maybe I am not understanding the methods here but it was my beleif that a high rated IBD stock included high relative
strength for the last "X" months. Long backtesting is always going to show good results on such a stock.

Wouldnt it be better to run tests on a fixed index such as the SP100 ?


Is the method to only "test" after the stock makes the list ?
or
is this realtive testing and the absolute performance numbers dont matter ?

Just curious...

++++++++++++++++

This is a very good question. The testing goes back to 2007, and it is unlikely that many of these have been IBD top picks for that long a time (most of these have since fallen well below the 90 rating).

Also 458 stocks is a good large number for testing - the main purpose here is to have a set of stocks that broadly reflect the overall market.

Long backtesting over the past year is only going to give you a good result. No real way around it. That's why I originally posted the long/short system.
