Kevin
I love the statement on your new site "Let's make money the old fashioned way... by taking it from less intelligent investors"
With this model you have created here that will be VERY easy to do indeed
Thank you
Cheers

My wife was not as enthused about the slogan as I was, but she doesn't understand trading and leaves it all up to me.

I will probably sell the Divergence system on Collective2, but eveyone here can still have it for free (obviously).

Thanks, jackmack. I'm glad that people are finding it useful.

Looks like a great exit today. Taking money from less intelligent investors it may be, but it's the nature of the system that that money has to come from somewhere.

Just curious
Your post #112595 from 4/2/13
You stated "Having backtested this new approach, it works quite well"
Which version were you referring to - the new combined filter from Cheese or the spreadsheet version and the combined entry criterion from frsrblch.
Just curious
Thanks
Cheers

I was referring to the approach where if you recieve both a BUY and SELL you stay in the trade. The original stats I posted for each filter had you exit the next day and then immediately rebuy - at what should be the same price, but you have to add in commissions and possible slippage.

Ah - got it - I misunderstood the statement.
Thank you for the clarification.
Cheers

You can fiddle with the entry and exit criteria in my spreadsheet (the column with blanks and ones immediately to the left of the entry and exit price columns) to test different approaches, but my testing seemed to show that holding when you get both a buy and a sell signal on the same day appears to be the best approach.

Taking a closer look at the exit brings up a question: In your "Exit" column in the Exit tab the statement is =IF(AND(F2=1,F1<>1),1,"") which means that if there has been an exit yesterday there can not be an exit signal today. Why is that?
I can't find any reference to that cell anywhere.

The G column in the Exit sheet isn't actually used. Originally, I had built the sheet around buying or selling when the signal goes from 0 to 1, regardless of what the other signal is doing, instead of the (entry=1,exit<>1) and (exit=1,entry<>1) it uses now. I changed how the exit was calculated at some point, and forgot to delete the unnecessary column.

Kevin
I was just thinking about your TAA system and how you move into differing funds according to set parameters end of month.
Then I began to wonder if it would be possible to somehow work the that methodology into this filter set and "maybe" yield a potentially better return over the straight SPY set?
Meaning if say IWM were pulling ahead using the TAA system you moved out of SPY into IWM would it be possible that there are divergences in IWM that would allow better returns for said month vs. SPY throughout?
Kind of a TAA DIVERGENCE filter?
Or are divergences not present in the EFA - IWM - MDY as they are in SPY.
Just wondering?
Thanks
