Hi John,

In reading the Foolish Workshop Board, I came across two posts that might go along with your system.

The first one is written by fivesolas, post #29469 FW. It talks about a book written by John Markham that says: BUY when the 15 day Moving Average is above the 50 day Moving Average. SELL when the 15 day Moving Average is below the 50 day Moving Average.

The second post, a reply to the one above, is written by joelxwil, post # 294690 FW. It talks about using three tests in conjuction with the NASDAQ. Here are the results over 5 years of that method:

Over the last 5 years (from this date) you have the following statistics:

Nasdaq: + 51%
Nasdaq timed with VectorVest: +266%
Nasdaq timed with Ruttr2: +234%
Nasdaq timed with fb5a: +292%

Maybe we should check this stuff out...
