Untested System

Post by dctag » Fri May 30, 2003 12:57 pm

Here is a system I thought up the other day as I was looking at the Valueline web site. Looking at the rankings chart here http://www.valueline.com/pdf/modelperf.pdf I think you could take a good long/short trend following system and combine them with the Vline ranks to get your universe of stocks.

Take all the 1's and put them on the long side and take all the 5's and put them on the short side. With a simple channel breakout or something to that effect I would imagine that the Vline results could be improved significantly. But like I said I havent done any testing at all.

Happy Trading

a practical question

Do these model portfolios have some associated ETF (closed end fund) ?
or you need to be a subscriber to VL (I know you can just go to the library).
Shorting stocks is hard (no matter how much of a dogs they are) so I would do 30:70 (40:60 ??) split of short equity versus long equity...essentially it would be two portfolios with two distinct money management engines. tighter stops on shorts etc etc.

Yes, Valueline does require a subscription or you can just go to your library.

I keypunched Value Line's data from their website to see if I could duplicate their plots. (Answer: yes). In case anybody else wants to fool around with this, let me save you the pain of typing:

Cumulating that data through a compounding routine, I got plots that mirror the ones VL puts in their ads.
