The original Marty Zweig’s Breath Thrust almost signaled last Thursday February 20, 2014.

In his book Martin Zweig detailed a particular breadth thrust signal that occurred on rare occasions where the sum of the daily advancing issues over any 10-day period was twice the sum of declining issues on the New York Stock Exchange Composite Index
Last week this Indicator came with one day of signaling a buy. It was so close that if you could swap market action of the Wednesday 19th for the 20th you would have a Buy signal and if you could count one additional day Friday 2/21/2014 it would have produced Buy signal which was the 11th consecutive day.

Question: Is there a study if added one or two say 11 to 12 days this Dr. Zweig’s signal what would it have brought in Market gains?

Below is an internet posting by Wayne Whaley and research courtesy of Ned Davis Research back tested since 1950 to 2009 on this 10 day Breath Thrust signal. Very Interesting
