After a long hiatus (4 years) from playing with stock market, primarily due to Hurricane Katrina and a few other personal reasons, I decided to get back. For now, only paper trading till I feel comfortable. Before the hiatus, I had started playing with mechanical systems and had developed a few but never got to really test them out. Now, I pulled one out and which still seems to be profitable after 4 years. This journal is for me to record the daily signals. The system is a dip buyer (thus long only... dohhh) and trades the very liquid stocks of NDX100 with at least a 40 day SMA of Volume of 4 Million. The maximum number of days it will stay in a trade is 4 days. It needs a $1 Mil. to trade and that is one reason why I am sticking to paper trading! The following signals are generated: 1. No Action 2. Buy at a Limit Price 3. If long then: a. Stop Price b. Profit Target 4. Time Out. I am also posting the back testing results for the last 4 years. The reason is to see how the system works in the future... ie. the next few months. The back testing assumed a slippage of 0.05% (a couple of points usually) and a commission of $10 per trade, each way. Thank you for joining the paper ride.
