    I finally figured out something. Your system does not try to buy on the bottom. It tries to buy as it starts to move from the bottom. Not it makes perfect sense. Thank you.

    • Bingo, MrPhil!! Momentum and reversals are often seen as new higher highs and higher lows are created. Actually I tried to design a system which would avoid buying into a sell off continuation pattern.

      On such a pattern, new lower lows and new lower highs continue for quite some time. As a good example look at PSEC from X-10 last month applying GLAD. There was no entry point as the sell off continued right up until X-1. (Now for others PSEC is not to be traded inside of X-6 but you see the pattern I am describing).

      Many times GLAD keeps you from buying at the highs in a sell off market...that was really my intent, but you are a good observer of the machinations of this mad trader's mind...as many times you do actually see the beginnings of a run higher as new higher highs and higher lows begin.....;-)
