KISS charts did well here:

    1. XLF KISS, would have had you out in February to avoid this mess. That said now you have a Demark 9 in place, and look how wide that MA Ribbon is with the BPT MA Deluxe, reversion to mean at any time

    2. KBE KISS Bank ETF, same deal, otherwise you have a Demark 13 here, and same width on the MA ribbon

    3. GLD KISS went long on March 10th! Not bad entry at all and since has been able to raise its STS smart stop 3 times. 

    4 GDX KISS went long on March 10th as well, has added two higher low stops

    remember you can always look these up form the STS tables 

    Well, they _did_ well since

    Well, they _did_ well since the signals had been issued. That time has passed for those not in them. Will they continue to do well from here or the run of luck is over?

    Steve's approach is not to pick bottoms, and I side with him on that.

    These don't pick bottoms, they

    These don't pick bottoms, they need a reversal and confirmation, they're not reversion to mean they're trend following. 

    They're not perfect by any means, they're just intended to work as a tool for managing long term investments across multiple instruments without curve fitting.

    James_Roe, thank you for answering.

    James_Roe, thank you for answering. Could these charts be released about 30 minutes before the market close, please? I would like to avoid dealing with gaps.

    Roy - these trend systems

    Posted by matt on 20th of Mar 2023 at 03:39 pm

    Roy - these trend systems are meant to catch trending moves lasting weeks to months, not a couple days. 

    while in the future we have some plans to be able to update the KISS charts maybe a couple times a day, but it will require extra cost - we have to get a new TS account, another computer, stuff like that

    but for now the KISS charts are updated shortly after the close, which to me is fine, why? ETF's trade until 8 pm and some places like IB now allow you to trade ETF's all night and on Sunday. And if the average trade is lasting 1, 2, 3 months, seeing a signal shortly after the close or entering it a day or so later doesn't matter much. It's not like the reversion to mean systems that might only be in the trade a few days or a week where you really don't want to chase - some slippage here doesn't matter

    also realize that it's a tool management system - while some of the entries are great, I think it's a good tool to manage a trending instrument that is already in an uptrend.

    Great work Matt.  just curious

    Great work Matt.  just curious how would crude oil (such as USO) have done recently with the KISS system since oil was in a sideways range (no trend) for a while?  Would there have been whipsaw signals?

    I see bidu went long. Do

    I see bidu went long.

    Do these kiss charts update intraday or after close ?
