Re: % invested in stocks

Jim,

Thanks for the BIP pitch. It sounds like a good
one to hold.

Re: Almost there, but....

Just checked again and the 180 day version slipped back.
It might take a bit longer for the slopes to go positive, if they do.

Almost there, but....

I read a post comparing results from different $SPX SMA slope bear catchers and had, I think, the slope of a 180 day SMA compared to the value 7 market days earlier gave optimal results.

I checked that and the 200 SMA with 10 days earlier [more]

Re: % invested in stocks

I used to own Brookfield and after it split I bought both sides, BAM and BIP, even though I liked BIP better. Why? It was consistently going up and in a business I think will survive various crises. But I never did a value type look at it. So what is [more]

Almost all the bear signals trigger with some real or opportunity loss. Insurance costs.

Re: OT: Opera

Ray,
The old HP computer I'm using has Microsoft XP. Google has been posting a little message about Chrome not supporting XP and Vista in the future. Maybe auto updates will be stopping then? :-)

Re: AI

Over-fitting has been discussed here for a long while, with general rules to control it, starting with choosing a rule that makes some business sense, Jim's third point, say, low pe , and back-testing it. If it works, stop--don't try to over tune the [more]

That must be it. I even recall coming to your conclusion a few weeks ago, just forgot. Thanks.

Re: Just saying

Bryan,

I think you got the answer to this from Robbie, but why
does GTR1 seem to work with ril.w!=null to pull up the WER stocks, but not with ril.w >0 (or 1), while ril.w =1!2!3!...!20 seems to work using the top 20 ranked [more]

Will gamma lead to new screens?

I used to read Didier Sornette's early papers where he tried to figure out bubbles and when they burst. Here's an article co-authored by him that might interest some in trying to see if his gamma* idea is helpful(eq 3). I played around with an [more]

Re: Users On This Mechanical Investing Board

FC,
You are right, we used to have long threads. I recall getting back from vacations with huge numbers of posts to scan. What's the difference?

Re: Just saying

Rather than claiming YEY is not trustworthy and should be replaced by WER,
another interpretation of the close fit between them is just the opposite: if one can be trusted long term, so can the other.

WER is 'out of sample' about 10 [more]

Re: Mechanical for the taxed

Thanks. That answers one question. Any idea why RSP,the ETF, and the
the CAGR results from the GTR1 version of RSP with 63 day rebalancing periods differ so much? Maybe I'm misusing GTR1?

Re: Mechanical for the taxed

Jim,

Where did you get pricing back to 1978 for RSP? It seems to have only been around since 2003 or so. Early in this thread you mentioned a paper about index funds. I wanted to re-read it, but the abstract doesn't pull up anymore.

Re: Bought Outs

I just usually look at the chart. If it's just jumped up and looks stationary (like a flat line), I assume it's been bought. If I want more info to understand what's going on I look it up at finance.yahoo.com [more]

Rising?

A 'rising' new highs-new lows signal suggests a bull correction in a bear market.
One based on Zee's suggested EMA(9)<0 for a bear market is EMA(9)>EMA(29).
This signaled today and stayed in force at the dismal close of trading. [more]
