Hi Mr. Ross, welcome to the board. I think you are starting to confuse the board, at least you are me. I just wanted to post a couple remarks you have made on another thread that are a bit confusing with what you are saying now. Hopefully you won't be starting a new thread every time you have something to say as it makes it a bit harder to "keep things straight". Perhaps you can start your own thread?
On the 12th at 11:10pm ET you wrote "Just moved from G/F to C/S/I. Relatively weak breakout today, but enough to confirm my signal."
On the 13th at 11:48pm ET you wrote "We need to break above 11,613 on the Dow to confirm."
Now you just wrote "On Monday, we had the Stochastics and PPO crossover, and heading higher. We also have price movement break above the 50 day EMA. That was enough to trigger a buy signal, although I waited until Wednesday to make my IFT's due to the weak breakthrough on Monday."
So when did you make your IFT, Monday or Wednesday? The Dow didn't break out past 11613 until Friday?
On the 13th at 10:34pm you also wrote "Since 2007 (when I started my Timing System) the S&P 500 has a cumulative return of -18.5% (as of the end of last week). My Timing System has had a cumulative return of 82.5%. Not trying to brag, just providing my statistics."
Is this return based on systemic entries or based on your decision to wait a few days after a confirmed signal change because the breakthrough was weak?
Just trying to get a clear picture. You seem to have had some success in the past and I hope it continues for you. If these are the only three perimeters you use, I can tell you from experience that I have my doubts about this system working during tight trading periods. Hopefully you will start an account on the autotracker so everyone can follow along. I think you've picked a particularly good time to start one.
Good luck to you!
