This system uses the momentum Commodity Channel Index (CCI) indicator to find short-term bottoms in the market. The CCI indicator is extremely volatile and is generally difficult to use when trading the S&P 500 Index.
We, however, have turned this volatility into a trading advantage by using the spread or gap between the CCI index and its moving average as a reversal signal. Specifically if the gap is larger then a certain percentage and CCI indicator crosses above its moving average we buy the market. The system remains in the market for a short period of time, exiting the trade as the indicators cross to the downside. As designed, this system only trades long the market; it can however be altered to short the market. It is best used in choppy bullish markets similar to the 1995 bull market.
Trading Tactics: This short-term bullish trading system exploits over extended markets. Futures, options, and mutual fund traders should take full advantage of this high probability trading system, either by taking outright positions or avoiding declining markets. The code for this system can be reversed to trade short positions. This system should be used in place of longer-term momentum systems in strong bullish choppy type markets. This system rarely exits at the market intermediate peak, so other exiting signals may be used in place of our indicator crossover technique.
