With loss after loss in these 2 systems,
where has your leader gone?
Abandon ship.

The reason I'm still here is because I have 20+ years of trading patience.Trading's a numbers game,not a guessing game.Any system that can deliver close to 90% win ratio,I'll trade it,and yes there's going to be some losses,but do the math,it's part of the game.The bottom line is systems trading must be followed to a tee,otherwise you'll never attain the percentages.Great work Kevin....

Shillllihs, I don't know what you are talking about. This is a great system (I am up quite a bit on this system), very thankful for Kevin. Shillllihs, I usually don't read your posts.

jackmack: I think what he means is that you divide your funds into five slices. Kevin's backtests show that it is rare for more than 5 triggers to be active at a time, so using more than 5 slices leaves too much money on the sidelines.

Since you use units & cant find any vehicle to track this right, system is good for about 20%
which is just ok.


When I asked what exit should be for the 3X short filter, I was told next morning(a loss) but he claimed he held longer for a win.

Both systems have been shalacked & I feel his presence & credibility has tanked.

This filter looks great on the surface & I wish it was but backwardation & no proper way to
win large long term & all the flaws with SS. leave this obsolete.

Jeez - can't a guy go on vacation for a week?

As I told everyone at the end of October, I will no longer be providing nightly updates on this as of 1 Nov since everyone has both the SF versions and ALL of the SS code to do it themselves. At that time the system was 20 for 22 wins. I really don't see where you are coming from with your comments.

As to the 3x shorting filter, please review what I have posted. Every trade is recorded. It is exactly this type of behavior that prompted me to make my recent threads read-only.

You must be running out of things to brag about.

shillllihs - not sure what you are talking about - did you not review the trade log Kevin kept everyone updated daily on from the start through his call to stop updating the log posted 11/1?
How bad is that?
Where are you getting your "good for @ 20%" from?
Sorry I just don't follow what you are referring to and if memory serves me correctly Kevin is on vacation.

To clarify - the 3x ETF shorting filters I use each have their own exit signal. None are held only for one day (that was a different system that I fully posted back in August). Please read what I post before assuming anything. It will save both of us time and keep things civil.

Exactly. The goal is to maximize the use of your funds, and trading only 5 units seems to be the sweet spot. It also allows you to average into a trade if the price goes against you.

Well, I think I showed it clearly that, when the appropriate vehicle is used, with the discipline of following the system, In 13 trades , I lost 8$ once,and made money in 12 others , for a total profit of 7 158.00 $.
This system works, until proven otherwise, sorry.
When you use 3 x vehicle for longs , and XIV for shorts, etc, it's your choice; do not blame the system.
We all admitted that trading a surrogate of VIX was a risk we took, as we did not know what was the best one.
Using a more prudent approach vs a super leveraged one seemed to me a more logical one.
