April 15th
  • In order to constantly improve our model, we compared it with timingcube.com 2008 Nasdaq signals :
 
MyTrendTimer.com 2008 Nasdaq Signals Timingcube.com 2008 Nasdaq Signals
  Some observations :
  • 2008 was an awfull year for the markets, including the Nasdaq.
  • Our model clearly outperformed timingcube.com during year 2008. (as in 2006 and 2007)
  • We don't have the "cash signal" to act has a stop loss when timing is too bad.
  • Trend Timing, trend following and quantitative analysis can't be 100% right...
  During Q1 2008, both MyTrendTimer (MTT) and Timingcube (TC) behaved quite the same. MTT sold first at 2602.68 and TC just a few days later at 2499.46. Then, TC bought at 2361.40 and MTT more than 1 month later bought at 2495.12. End of Q1 2008, TC gave a "cash signal" at 2315.63 and MTT sold the position. (same day and same price !). This was the last 2008 signal for MTT. (good !) In August, TC bought again at 2355.73 and then issued a "cash signal" at 2255.88 just 1 month later.
