I have recently started messing around with market breadth data to see if I can manipulate it in a way that I can determine if I should go long or short. Well enough of the gibber jab, let me give you what I came up with and maybe you can do me the favor of letting me know what you think. Add all advances and Add all declines together. Then multiply by 0.75. If advances or declines is higher than that number continue. Add all up volume and Add all down volume together. Then multiply by 0.75. If up or down volume is high than that number continue. Rule = Both of these two forms of market breadth data must be in the same direction. Either advance and up volume or decline and down volume. Now, basically what I'm trying to do here is find what the majority of the market is currently doing and act upon this information in a price valued manner. What I mean by a price valued manner is that when we go long we will look for signs of the market going short and when we go short we will look for signs of the market going long. In this way we will be entering our positions at a value, thus creating more profit. This is a theory of mine and I have done some live backtesting, but I would like to know your opinion of this matter. My professors at college don't really seem to be helping me that much as that I'm kind of on my own for this little project of mine. Maybe you can help me out or share some of your wisdom with me.
