Compared CCC(14), which BarChart favors, to CCC(20), which StockChart favors, and saw little diff in results. Also compared both to StochRSI(14), which did worse than CCC (either parameter).

Ran the test on the SP100, again using a 150-day lookback. Across the whole basket, B&H did better than actively trading only 10% of the time. The clear exceptions --once again-- were stocks on a rip. Then B&H prevails.

We are NOT currently in a bull market, nor is one likely to return in the rest of this decade. "Investors" need to become "traders", or they're not going to survive, with this exception. Them who short should do well, and --ironically-- they should put on their positions and then let them ride. In other words, they should consider the viability of the opposite of B&H, which would be S&H, only covering when it becomes drop-dead obvious the bear is retreating.
