Just noticed that yesterday the Aroon Up divergence filter triggered a BUY. It triggered again today as well, so there is still a BUY signal (although any profit may have been mostly made in today's move up from the open).

Note: The exit triggered yesterday so you would have exited at the open today. I am holding my SSO today (I jumped the gun a bit and was in at 61.50 on 10/19, so after a rough ride I am only down -3.30%). I'll probably need to close this one out either end of day today or by EOD tomorrow. Had I entered at the appropriate time, I would only be down 1.6%.

Using SPY, you would have entered at 143.15 on 10/22 and exited this morning at the open at 142.22 for a loss of -0.65%.

Interesting - intraday I am also seeing a BUY signal for the Q-Stick divergence filter right now (2:45 PM).

There were four filters triggered on Oct 19, so it depends on whether you're buying when any filter is triggered, when a combination of filters is triggered, or if a particular filter is triggered. The recent trigger on Nov 27 would have seen holding the stock for a single day, and would have resulted in a 1.6% gain on SPY.

My backtesting showed the SMI11DIV filter being the most consistent filter, so I'm holding out for it to trigger again.

If you don't get tired of people thanking you for your contributions here Kevin, I would like to thank you as well. :)

I agree that the SMI Divergence filter does quite well, but I would not discount the Q-stick Divergence either. Historically greater than 91% win rate, and a very respectable Sharpe ratio.

Kevin do you run all 10 filters every day or do you have a composite filter like mahkoh posted on page 2?

I'm lazy. I use Mahkoh's.

I originally built this as a composite filter - you can tell if you look at each filter code.

Today both the PDI and Aroon Up Divergence filters triggered a BUY on the ^SPX. Looks like the Q-stick also is signalling a BUY (although not from my SS divergence filters, which are functionally identical. However these also signaled for the PDI and Aroon systems).

Today also triggered a BUY on the LRS Divergence filter. 4 of 10 have signalled a BUY over the last 2 days.

If I am reading this correctly, six filters have triggered. I am hoping for a lower open on Monday, because I am going in. Thanks Kevin.

Lks right. My Stratasearch filter only shows one added today - the StochD divergence - and only 4 sgnals in play at the moment. Must be slight differences in the calcs or data, but either way the signals are clear.
