Antonacci's GEM got out of stocks in December (using a 12 month lookback).

Thanks for highlighting that! at what point in December did they issue the out signal? Was it at the beginning of the month, avoiding most of the drawdown if people bailed completely? Or was it at the end, a week after the low had been hit?

This is perfectly an example of the risk of whipsaw and the imperfections - and risks an investor needs to accept - in using intermediate term signals / processes like these. To add to the complexity, "whether it worked" is only visible in hindsight.
