Hi, I'm probably missing something very simple here.... but when using the SMA 200 is there anyway of identifying shares where they have only recently turned positive? I can screen a positive SMA no problem but im looking for the SMA that has just tuned positive i.e in the last week etc. Any help or alternative method is appreciated. Thanks

I'm holding my long positions with tighter stops close to the nearest support levels on each. The MA's are not down trending yet to suggest a sell off though.

Hi Herbie, I'm talking about the MA for the 'speculative stock', 'conservative stock' etc in isolation. So if we had the data points for the graphs shown we could use a 50MA on each of the stock types. In the same way as an index.

The risk on risk off can be clearly identified through a moving average, in the same way as equities or indexes. i.e if the average is moving up for 'highly speculative' stocks the risk is on, as soon as the average turns down its off.

Hi Grindtrader, What leverage do you use on your account? I currently use 130% My maximum per stock is a 5% holding Just wondering how this compares to you.. Thanks
