I learned a little here but not enough. Milk the cows was the only thing i could say was of any value if you execute perfectly and are not getting skrewed on executions. Sometimes not given enough time to enter your stop before it's way past it. The filters on the other hand are a different story. I found none and or no one provided any that worked in all environments. In fact, all long filters made better short filters but shorting seems dangerous to me. So when my membership runs out i'm most likely gone. I'd rather have an extra $100 a year in my pocket than experiment with the half baked ideas.
If there is a holy grail, it certainly is not provided here.

Who ever found the Holy Grail is not sharing. Trading off & on for 20 years.

Another filter that goes nowhere. Email me when you can find a filter that tells the direction of the market for the next day, the day before.

The answer is inside yourself....no filter can do what you ask...you do not go long a market that is heading down.. you will not win. Just look at the indexes they do not go straight up or down.... on a back test you can not pick out what days to trade..... I have been thinking of using SPY as a trigger on back tests for swing trades.... not enough time in the day.

Of course the long filters were great shorts. The DOW topped in mid-January.

Remember dahling, ... "The trend is your friend" ...
The trend is DOWN.
As far as I know, only one person on earth knew IN ADVANCE when this market would turn ...
Lloyd "I'm doing G*d's Work" Blankfein.
Second would be his best pal .... Jamie Dimon.
OR .. you can overlay charts "their" charts ..
$DJI
JPM
GS
OR ...
you can look here ...
HERE
In fact, I told the "newbeez" to practice drawing their trendlines ... DOWN!
You were warned!

There are no holy grails, no silver bullets...

All we need is an edge. Not a big edge, just an edge.
