rev. 04/04/97 It's quite easy to use MetaStock for Windows to duplicate the Genesis of a Simple Futures Trading system which is presented in the TASC May 97 issue's interview of Jay Kaeppel.
To use The Explorer to screen for futures generating a recent signal with this system, choose The Explorer from the Tools dialog and enter in the following rules:
Genesis of a Simple Futures Exploration
ColumnA: Buy Sign
Cross( Mov( Close,9,S), Mov( Close,50,S)) And Close > Mov( Close,80,S)
ColumnB: Shrt Sig
Cross( Mov( Close,50,S), Mov( Close,9,S)) And Close < Mov( Close,80,S)
colA = 1 OR colB = 1
Next choose Explore and The Explorer will search for and then display any futures, which have generated new signals.
