I'm curious how a % trailing stop after the 5dma cross would work for your methodology, over a large # of trades. The Oct 1 trade would have benefited very well. Nice work.

Excellent! Your variance signals tell you when the conditions are appropriate to put on a trade such a the SPY or QQQQ or some other ETF and the daily price action vs the 5 day moving average tell you when to exit. The exit triggers when price crosses the 5 day moving average. Sounds pretty straight forward. I assume it would take a few days for these trades to play out. Is that your experience?

I like your strategy for using those highly leveraged and correlated ETFs, too. I'd imagine you would have to watch them pretty close though.

Everything makes sense now. Looking forward to the posts.

All the best,

You have it exactly right Mike .....

One further note, I am finding the signal is slightly better when you are buying an oversold security when it and/or the market is trading above its 200 dma. Conversely, selling or shorting into strength on the sell signals works better when the security or market is below the 200 dma.

Right here I am short and am fighting the tape .... and i am losing the battle today.

You can lose the battle - just don't lose the war.

Good luck, as always buddy!

Can anyone run a chart with both the graphing lines of the Vix and .djia (Dow Jones Industrial Average) together on one chart. That way we can see the correlation on when the Vix is down or up and what happens to Dow Jones Industrial Average? Thank you.
