A Daily A-D New High-New Low Market System by Dennis Meyers
Here's a new system using daily statistics to issue buy and sell signals for the stock market.
In the February 1996 STOCKS & COMMODITIES, I presented a stock market timing system called the ADL-NH-NL system, which uses as its base for generating signals the weekly advancing-declining issues (ADL) and the weekly new highs (NH) and new lows (NL) on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). I rigorously investigated this set of market indicators because of the anecdotal discussion that has abounded concerning the use of these market statistics. Often, articles point to comparisons of these indicators to the Dow Jones averages as confirmation of emerging upward market trends or forewarning market declines based on divergences. My February article detailed the development and rigorous testing of a weekly based method using in- and out-of-sample
parameter design and models.
