The system gains are typically in this range - in percent it is not really all that impressive, but since I am trading at a fairly large level that absolute gains are decent.

Did you have 3 different filters posting Buy signals on 11/28 for the Open of 11/29?

I only have 1 filter Buy signal in the Daily Signals run for the night of 11/28, and that filter is still in Hold mode as of last night, so normally would not be sold today at the Open.

My goal is actually to be in cash by the end of this year - not that I don't have faith in the system as it has performed admirably to date, but I am a bit concerned about how much longer this sustained low volatility environment can be maintained. Also, I have applied a lot of trading capital against this system throughout the year and want to approach 2018 with a bit more diversification.

Remember two things about this system:

1. It is long only. I was not able to find a lot of good short filters on XIV, although using other approaches this can be done. I would feel more comfortable if this could signal both ways.
2. It is composed of 30 filters that will over time need to be individually re-optimized. I built this about 5 or 6 months ago, and so far it continues to do well, but like all filters it needs to be retrained on more recent data periodically. I realize that is a lot of effort, but it could easily be split among several folks here.

Kevin, since I am somewhat older, my technical skills are limited. If you show me how it is done, I will be glad to help update the filters. Thanks.

Best regards,

Maybe someone can post the systems in SF code for you, but since this is a bull market, you can just buy and hold gramps. You do not need a constrained system in this market. This system will be helpful down the line in a zigzag market, and no one knows what it will do in a bear market. But as right now, it's like using training wheels.

Just my opinion - The ETF that should be traded the opposite of XIV should TMF not VXX. The reason is that it will take a while for a true bear market to form and most are pretty short lived. That is why TLT most of time beats out SH.
