Re: frustration with quicken

I do use Microsoft money. You can still find it and download it on your computer. But that doesn't give me good performance numbers for any individual stock...not that I've found anyways. I don't believe it adds in dividends.

Re: H52EarnPS HTD revisited

Given those tidbits, I'm contemplating moving my H52EarnPS (1-4) screen to HTD-14 instead of HTD-8. Am I missing something?

Re: Antonacci's Optimal Momentum in GTR1

I have not mechanized the universe composition completely. We have shown that an optimum universe for a hold one or two is about seven. However we cannot know the seven ahead of time. So I cast a wide net knowing that many would never be chosen, [more]

Re: Antonacci's Optimal Momentum in GTR1

Also what was your reasoning to have first 63 days look back then 210 days then 63 days look back? Wouldn't it make more sense to start with a say a longer look back like 24 to 18 months look back then shorter look backs?

Re: QQQ vs QQQE

Seems like the timing of my buy or sell would have a lot bigger impact than the bid/ask spread.

Re: QQQ vs QQQE

QQQE is an equal weighted fund while QQQ is market weighted.

Pro:
Equal-Weighted should outperform Cap-Weighted

Con:
QQQE Volume (90-Day Average) is about 2000 times less than QQQ
QQQE Bid/Ask Spread (1 Month [more]

Re: Antonacci's Optimal Momentum in GTR1

Of course this additional post is a bit of overkill but I can't help myself in pointing out that the universe that works best is not always what would seem sensible or traditional by authors, like Antonacci, of asset rotation screens.
