This simple RSI-MA long/short algorithm beats the Dow by a FREAKING HUGE margin over the past century (excluding dividends and trading costs).
The algorithm uses a fast SMA of the RSI as a buy/cover signal and a slow SMA of the RSI as a sell/short signal.
Backtest period = 09/17/1916 - 11/02/2015
Dow = 98 --> 17,830 = +18,094% = 5.38% CAGR
Algorithm = net...
I was trying to test the GalloBias indicator so I decided to create a basic strategy for it. Maybe it is a bit naive, because there is no proper risk management and explicit costs implemented in it. So keep in mind the probably won't work on a real account.

200 - WEEKLY MOVING AVERAGE
GREEN LINE IS 200 WEEKS MOVING AVERAGE OF CLOSE
BLUE LINE IS 200 WEEKS MOVING AVERAGE OF LOW MULTIPLIED BY 0.90
RED LINE IS 100 WEEKS MOVING AVERAGE OF CLOSE
CONDITION: GREEN LINE SHOULD BE ABOVE RED LINE AND PRICE SHOULD BE ABOVE GREEN LINE
BUY ONCE THE PRICE IS ABOVE GREEN LINE AND FULFILLS THE CONDITION.
TARGET 1 FOR TIME FRAME...
