I haven't taken many new

    Zoom intra day access

    I haven't taken many new trades today on stocks, mainly justmanaging positions, I bought 50 GLD put options last week and shorted GLD on Thur, so took profits on a large portion of those. I also had JPM and some KRE coming into today

    I've also been day trading ES

    the other thing I'm working on is visually reviewing the SPX KiSS charts and placing the trades in a spreadsheet so that we can see some statistics.  I'm guessing by the time I'm done the DVT system would provide 3  - 4 times over buy and hold from Mar 2009. however the main benefit I think is the lack of draw down.  The market had a 25% correction in 2011, the DVT you got out 4% off the highs so you avoided that. same for strong corrections like 2015/2016, one in 2014, and of course Feb/Mar this year the DVT stopped you out about 5% from the highs whereas the market fell 35% or you would have had to sit through a 35% drawdown.  To me that's where it shines.  Also I'm NOT computing all those additional trade signals you have while in a trade that I showed in those webinars, I'm ONLY showing first entry off a low then the exit when the DVT is hit. As you know during a long trend you could have 5 - 10 small buy signals in there to greatly add to your profits, I'm not computing those (too much right ).  Also number of total times DVT's hit in a year, it's not much. To give you an example the system signaled a long on 3/10/09 and the DVT stop wasn't hit until 1/21/10 or 317 days later.  You had 2 DVT's hit in 2010, 4 hit in 2011, 3 in 2019 etc.  so maybe on average 3 a year? with ranges of as little as 2 to maybe 4 - 5 max

    Wow, that's a lot of

    Wow, that's a lot of effort, but should give a good picture of the system at work. 

    Question about the zoom . I checked it about 30 minutes ago and it was showing $INX, which I'm not familiar with. It said it's a SPX instrument, but the numbers were in the 1200s. Does it correlate with SPX, but just with different values?

    it's been showing @ESM20 all

    it's been showing @ESM20 all morning, I think yesterday it was showing INX which is SPX cash, but that was yesterday.

    Sorry to bother you about

    Sorry to bother you about this. I used the link above in the sticky note. Refreshed the screen, clicked it again just now, still saw $INX. Not sure why.

    I am also just seeing

    I am also just seeing INX - seems like the data is frozen and not updating, anyone else have this problem?
