... The problem is that VIX is ,most of the time, INVERSELY linked to SPY:long VIX=SHORT SPY; if you are long SPY, yes you are in the money, but you took the OPPOSITE signal.

It's not the simplest system to follow in any respect.How about a 75% or better win ratio based on the SPY long side trade only? 1 simple position... Any suggestions???

Another buy signal was triggered after the close on Friday, the other 4 open signals are a hold.

I looked back at the 10 VXX filters to see which generated the greatest number of signals so as maybe not needing to have 5 or 10 open positions when trying to be in the same instrument and played around just a little on the #10 filter as it generated the greatest number of entry/exit signals on my review and came up with the following;

symlist(vxx)
/*ENTRY CONDITIONS*/
set{EXIT1, count(ind(^vix, cci(19)) crossed ABOVE -119, 1)}
set{EXIT2, count(ind(^vix, ppo(3,60)) BELOW 0, 1)}
set{EXIT, EXIT1 * EXIT2}

/*EXIT CONDITIONS*/
set{ENTRY1, count(ind(^vix, cci(19)) crossed BELOW -119, 1)}
set{ENTRY2, count(ind(^vix, ppo(3,60)) ABOVE 0, 1)}
set{ENTRY, ENTRY1 + ENTRY2}

add column entry {long entry}
add column separator
add column exit

DRAW EMA(10)

DRAW long entry ON PLOT NULL
DRAW exit ON PLOT NULL



Then I thought about XIV since the times when VXX are up are typically in spike situations so here is the inverse for XIV

symlist(xiv)
/*ENTRY CONDITIONS*/
set{EXIT1, count(ind(^vix, cci(19)) crossed below -119, 1)}
set{EXIT2, count(ind(^vix, ppo(3,60)) above 0, 1)}
set{EXIT, EXIT1 * EXIT2}

/*EXIT CONDITIONS*/
set{ENTRY1, count(ind(^vix, cci(19)) crossed above -119, 1)}
set{ENTRY2, count(ind(^vix, ppo(3,60)) below 0, 1)}
set{ENTRY, ENTRY1 + ENTRY2}

add column entry {long entry}
add column separator
add column exit

DRAW EMA(10)

DRAW long entry ON PLOT NULL
DRAW exit ON PLOT NULL

Now just reviewing these (not back testing) it appears these two gave very good signals of when to get into which as needed - (the exit on the VXX side is left open to ones own liking - but if one just played it for a certain percentage gain - say 10-15% then exited and waited for the signal to get back into XIV it just seemed to work.

Thoughts?

@jackmack These seems to issue long entry for both XIV VXX at the moment.

inversely correlation coefficient between XIV and VXX is -0.99 not -1.00

How can we check if the correlation factor is the issue? (It doesn't look like that's the case here, I monitored it while vix went ups and down today still no clear signal which one is the correct signal)

He did not change the names of the entry and exit user variables - they are the same in both filters and that is why both signals are the same.

Today's signals are sell long #4 and 6 signals, leaving long signals #2, 5, 7 open.
