Hi!
I've seen several threads discussing the performance of different bear catchers. One thing however intrigues me: how would one prefer to apply the bear catcher to the market as a whole, and not to each security of a screen itself? Would it yield better results to use a simple MA crossover for example (to avoid big losses) on each security? Or would it perhaps cut gains and decrease overall profit without limiting risk?
