Zee,

Thank you for sharing all this great work.

The other simple timing system that could be easily used by investors like myself is Seasonality - whether using fixed dates (bearish May through end-September or October), or switch dates modified with MACD per Sy Harding's STS .

Have you tested how Seasonality compares with the NDX 40/140 EMA crossover for bullish/bearish screen selection?

I wonder not only about CAGR and Sharpe, but also whether going bearish in summer will improve drawdowns and UI.
