What is the definition of column "signal"

Just a binary representation of the three individual signal results.
Create [BCC]: [1*[[SMADiff] > 0 ? 1 : 0] + 2*[[NHNLDiff] > -0.4 ? 1 : 0] + 4*[DBE]]
For example:
000 No signal is bullish
100 SMA only bullish
010 NHNL only bullish
001 DBE only bullish
111 All three signals are bullish
To backtest if for example if you want to test the results of NHNL only you must include:
NHNL is bull if: BCC = 2!3!6!7

I recall a recent comment that the NH/NL indicator is not working well. True?

NHNL tends to be faster reacting, it works by itself but works even better with the other two.
GTR1 will test back to 1925 but for more recent performance from the beginning of 1990:
			CAGR	GSD	MDD	UI	SAWR
SP500 buy and hold 9.8 17.3 54.8 14 5.2
BCC >0 11.3 14.1 33.5 7.6 7.3
NHNL = Bull 9.3 10.4 22.1 5.7 6.6
