So whatever averages you're looking at I would assume are fairly short. That must cause considerable whipiness in your daily signals, without of course knowing what other rules you're using.
Yes, i use shorter MAs. Using MAs alone will not solve the problem. I will leave it at that.
I posted a daily sell on 2/23. I posted a daily buy on 3/24. I posted a sell yesterday. None of the signals have whipsawed. The current signal is still young and in progress. That does not mean i will not get whipsawed. That's part of the game, whether you use faster MAs or slower MAs. But i will post all the signal failures if and when they occur.
Right, I agree, almost any MA of any setting will whipsaw. To me, that's an argument for using longer averages since they have "less" opportunity to whipsaw. In fact, personally I don't like MAs very much, I was just making the observation. BTW, not criticizing your calls, so far they've worked well. I'm hoping this one doesn't though, for obvious reasons.
