The last exit was Feb 19, to my knowledge all filters triggered again within a couple of days and are still in trade?

Yes. Anyone who is currently in one of the 8 active trades need only to stay put. Those are all profitable right now (I think).

I agree you would still be in 8 units without any exit, based on the 10% per unit concept.

Once again, all nine current trades (and it is nine by my count, not eight) are profitable. And if you had entered this morning you are doing fine as well.

Tomorrow at the open you would exit all but 2 of your trades.

Once again - all closed trades were profitable.

By the way, SS says that there are three trades still in play (CMF, SMI, and RMI). SMI did not show up here using the SF filter. Just to let folks know - probably due to small differences in calculations.

Last night three more of the Divergence filters triggered, for a total of six (according to Stratasearch - the SF count is only five).

Since these filters have been profitable more than 120 times since December, this is a good signal to monitor. The three trades in play are only up 0.18%, so if there is a pullback today you could get in near neutral or at a slightly better price by the end of the day.

The other way to play this is to buy at the open (as the filter requires) and ride it.

Six filters currently in trades. Just noticed there is an intraday exit signal today. This could change but for now if it holds all trades will (once again) close profitably.

It looks like Kevin and duke have different views on what an exit signal means.

Kevin, is it correct to say that you believe any 1 exit signal is reason to exit all open positions? From what I think duke is saying, if you have 4 open positions and get an exit signal, he closes 1 and holds the remaining 3. Please clarify. Thanks.

Bill

No, the exit signal is just that, an exit signal. However, if it triggers while a BUY signal is still in play for a given filter, one simply stays in.

Look at the filter results for today - so far only the Q-stick Divergence filter is still signaling a BUY (it is one of the current filters in a trade). Assuming the exit signal is still triggered at EOD, one would close all open positions where an EXIT was triggered and a BUY was not.

Note that as of 1:30 PM the EXIT signal is gone for today.
