I find the recent management of your multiple model selection and juggling,
and market recommendations based upon them, extremely confusing. Not intellectually
confusing, but, from the perspective of someone trying to use your output for
trading, there seems to be little logic presently expressed. You are now flat
in the market while your best models are clearly long. And you have already conveyed
that the model will switch to a currently bullish model this coming weekend.
Do you need perhaps a "model of models of models" to decide when and which model
is actually operative at a given time? I'm not convinced that a rules-based model
regime-switching method really works for markets.
It has taken more time than I expected to decide on whether version 7
or version 16 would be the one that we would use as the standard model. Based
on the trading results over the last several months, forecast model version 16
has proven to be the best. On a time scale of several years, the trading return
of versions 7 and 16 are nearly the same. Even version 10 did very well over
the long term. The confusion should end this weekend when we make the switch
to version 16 as we will no longer need to present the results of multiple models.
We will base our trading logic solely on version 16 forecast results.
I don't think we
need to consider a model to switch between forecast models. It would
be far too confusing and I don't see that we would gain much. The
networks already switch internally between logic elements based on
