You've posted about a strategy regarding pulling money out of an index when it drops below the 200 day SMA and buying back in. Perhaps I don't have your strategy correct correct, but I did a historical analysis on a similar strategy some time ago and it showed that the vast majority of the time, the buy in was at a higher price than the sell meaning that you would be better off holding most of the time.

Could you elaborate on the strategy for the sake of discussion?
