I just re-read what you posted and am wondering if I understand.

You are showing more trades (75) with the buy and sell compared to just the sell (59).

The buy and sell rule has a shorter duration for following the SMA rule (only allowed when growth is negative) compared to the duration from growth turning negative until sometime after the groth turns positive.

I am wondering if the results are reversed, or I need more understanding??
