We are starting off a downloads page where we are going to be posting various material that you can freely download. To kick-off things you will find a nice excel template that implements standard (not ours!) moving average cross-overs but has additional material, like Fibo retracements, RSI and strategy evaluation. Just upload your data in the data template and refresh all formulas and you are set to go. Please note that the first trade signals have to be inputed manually in the “indicators” worksheet. This is older material and it may have errors, so scan it first to check.
First of all, thank you very much for your feedback and all your e-mails. We have noticed that there is a lot of our readers who find the methodology of our Improved MA a bit confusing regarding the exit and the entry signals.
When do you use the standard MA?
What happens if
and the immediate next period
What happens to the Improved MA once OUT?
The above are just some of the question we have received over the past few days.
In the “MA Example” we will re-write and post (probably during the end of the week) some new step-by-step guidelines covering all IN and OUT cases.
Please stay tuned!
We are currently thinking of creating another page (or maybe a couple of them) with pairs-trading picks & suggestions on ETFs.
Hopefully this will be on air in the next couple of weeks (as we are waiting for the Xmas break from teaching!).
A new page was added with title “Real-Time iMA“. In there we focus on the SP500 and for the next months we will compare the performance of the usual SMA(20) and our suggested modification. We will try to update this section every week.
Please find an intuitive example on the top menu under “MA Example” with a graph explanation of the modifications we suggest in our MA papers.
Please let us know of your thoughts, concerns and suggestions.
