Interesting paper from HSBC research on forex strategy
Interesting they propose a simple “price is higher/lower than past price” instead of moving average. Also interesting read on how they test, rank and optimise a strategy.
Think it was this episode, but this guy agrees and I do too along with every book I’ve ever read that includes serious research- moving average cross overs suck.
This guy’s research, again if its the right episode, actually found when major moving averages cross over (the much hyped “golden cross”) its actually a better time to take the opposite signal as a swing trade for a number of days than to trade with the cross over. Low 1(optimize) > High 10(optimize) generally works far better for defining an uptrend than a MA does or simply close X> close Y.
