You want a great contrarian indicator? Me + a NOT gate. Hah! Check this out.. I trade with a simple moving average system, no gimmicks. I should say, I developed one, and tried to put it into practice. Along the way, I make various "judgement calls"-- open a trade a little earlier or hold on a little longer than the method calls for. Here are the results for May (just went over my statement): Method: 20 trades, gross $1380.00, net $1262.00 after commissions. Method + my tweaks: 50 trades (yes, fifty), gross $400, net $102.50 after commissions. I am shocked. FIFTY trades, 2.5 times more than the method called for. The surprising thing-- along the way, I just thought I was tweaking it a little bit here and there. hahahah! Ok. Note to self: Don't mess with the method.
