Re: Dual Momentum Gary Antonacci

I don't disagree with you. The backtest gives good results and momentum anomaly is well known. What I am saying is that we have been in a market regime over the sample period where: 1. Bonds have always gone up, so everytime it would switch out of equities it would have had a high chance of still ma...

Re: Dual Momentum Gary Antonacci

Thank you. I tested the simple model in the book with TB. It does give very few trades so I take AFJ point plus the test is in period where both equities and bonds have gone up so the long only aspect of his thesis worked well.

Re: Dual Momentum Gary Antonacci

Thank you for your replies, I may have unwantingly touched a sore point here. It is not my intention to ask for someone to code for me. I was rather looking for some suggestions such as "use a portfolio manager blox with grouprank functions" or something of that order. I have been trying to code it ...

Dual Momentum Gary Antonacci

Have any of you tested the Global Asset Allocation Strategies suggested by Meb Faber and Gary Antonacci ? AFJ Garner has posted negative views on them but I was wondering if any of you had tested them and had some TB code to share or suggestions on how to build it. Specifically the one suggested by ...

By the way what do you think about the new representative prices option: Close New - Close Old Same Day, Roll Adjusted ?

Yes I see your point for fixed rolls. If one wanted to go the OI Vol trigger I was wondering what usee are the settings other that the 2 day lagged one. Why are they even there if they cannot simulate real trading ? If they are there for a reason I'd be interested to know when do people use them if ...

CSI Futures roll Aligned with Data or Nex Day

Given the delay in getting Open Interest Data and the possible inaccuracy of Volumes until day +2. In which occasion would any of you roll CSI futures with the Aligned with data or Next day settings ?
Is seems the only option is rolling Lagged (2nd Day) ?

Renko charts

I was shown Renko charts http://www.investopedia.com/terms/r/renkochart.asp by a trader who uses them as a counter trend entry into a trend. Ignoring the time element in a chart ( like point and figure) and focusing only on price direction instinctively makes sense as a tool to have in a trend follo...

Thank you Jez.
I read the blog but I am not sure I understand the difference between old close close and new close close by reading the explanation provided.
If someone smarter can translate it for simple minds that would be much appreciated.

@LeapFrog

Could you kindly explain in a more extensive and as simpy as possible (maybe with some examples) how the new stitching procedure works vs the previous close close ?

Many Thanks

Chris Thanks for taking the time to answer. Your point is very clear. It makes sense as you say to expand the universe to test robustness of the system and allowing for more signals. There are markets that don't trend well I presume you eliminate those ? At the moment I am trading 18 markets in 6 gr...

Robustly Selecting Porfolio to Trade

I was wondering if anybody had strong views on a strong and robust process on how to select which instruments to include in a portfolio to trade. Although the system development process of deciding the : WHAT, WHEN, WHETHER, HOW MUCH and OUT is iterative and somewhat chicken and egg, if the objectiv...
