Exit signal triggered today (at least as of this moment, this could change by EOD).

Based on the current number of open positions (9 units, all of which are profitable), one would reduce SPY holdings by selling 8 units at the open tomorrow.

If I wanted to run the spreadsheet starting back in say 1995 and filling it through 2000 - would I need to leave the first 25 days on the original spreadsheet then copy and paste the data from 1995 filling it in through 2000 starting on the 25th day of the current spreadsheet and in doing so so that there was no break in the formulations - then delete those first 25 days of data since they would be out of sequence.
Would that work for back testing or is there a loss in the formulas?
Reason for asking is I want to manually test the spreadsheet method and see what the results are from 1995 through now doing it in approximate 5 year increments to allow fitting to the spreadsheet maximum limitations.
Thank you in advance

Jack - these divergences were based on the period 2007-2012. They are not necessarily valid or as profitable during the times you are looking at. This system was designed to be periodically updated and adjusted, roughly once a month or so based on a rolling 5 year window. I would suggest applying a walk-forward analysis rather than simply cutting and pasting the current divergence signals into previous timeframes.

Any system that does not periodically re-optimize is likely to produce lower returns going forward. So far this system has been in play about 7-8 months and is still killing it, so no tweaking has been needed (every trade since Dec of last year has been a winner - I'm not going to adjust anything that is already doing as good as it possibly can).

Okay - thank you - I was not aware that there potentially needed to be changes and or adjustments over time.
I will leave it alone

Interesting
My e-mail version of the combined filter from page 2 shows no EXIT last night but in the filter right now it is present.
Anyone else get (or see) that?

it is not present if you use the filter from pg 22 (which correctly uses the ^SPX rather than the SPY). I noticed that the SPY version had en exit signal last night, but the ^SPX version did not. I advised Pangolin D subscribers to take no action today.

I might be mistaken but I believe the volume based indicators, such as Chaikin Money Flow, will not work with ^SPX in stockfetcher. Therefore, SPY should be used for CMF. If this is inaccurate please advise. Thanks.

I am not sure I have your answer but I did run each of the filters and they have different results.

The Composite SPX index filter (pg 22) shows a composite score of 1 with just one item checked (arup6div which is the aroon up indicator). And, the cmf14div indicator (Chaikan money flow) is NOT checked.

However, the Composite SPY filter from the second page shows a composite score of 2 with two items checked. (arup6div - aroon is checked). But, the cmf14div (Chaikan Money Flow) IS checked.

Thus, there is a difference and you may be right about Chaikan. Hopefully others can shed more light. Thanks.

You are corrct regarding the CMF filter. As SF does not have volume data on indices the CMF filter will not trigger


1. Money Flow Multiplier = [(Close - Low) - (High - Close)] /(High - Low)

2. Money Flow Volume = Money Flow Multiplier x Volume for the Period

3. 20-period CMF = 20-period Sum of Money Flow Volume / 20 period Sum of Volume

This filter uses SPY for the CMF filter:
