So I thought I'd pull out one of my simplest methods for determining bullish and bearish periods. It simply takes the new highs and new lows of the index and subtracts the one from the other and applies a weighted moving average to the result to remove excessive whipsaw. When it is above, say zero, you are bullish, and when below, you are bearish. I've used values I've tuned a bit, but anyone is welcome to get the data from Pinnacle and go through the same process

Are you using the NASDAQ count of new highs/lows for bullish/bearish? If so, how does it (your Blending Method) work using the S&P?
