Could you post this on shrewdm.com in that Mechanical Investing board, as well?

Thank you.

Thanks for posting these weekly. The SMA indicator should be Bull, not Bear. The S&P 500 at 3973 is slightly above its 200 dma of 3969. So both SMA and NH/NL are now bullish.

True only if you assume that BCC “SMA indicator” is a moving average crossover(MAC). But it is not. The BCC 200-DMA Slope is negative or Bearish.

Got it. Is there a formula for calculating “SMA Slope”?

Not sure what BCC used. The Excel formula for slope uses linear regression.

SLOPE function - Office Support var varSegmentation = 0; var varClickTracking = 0; var varCustomerTracking = 0; var varCustomerCookies = [“msresearch”]; var varAutoFirePV = 0; var Route = ‘16000’; var Ctrl = ‘010’; var OOGlobal = { BaseDomain: location.protocol + “//” + location.host, Culture: “en-US”, Language: “en”, LCID: “1033”, IsAuthenticated: “False”, WebAppUrl: “Login | Microsoft 365”, GUID: “11fb8f97-3117-4813-98aa-61d7e01276b9”, Platform: navigator.platform };

## Syntax

SLOPE(known_y’s, known_x’s)

The SLOPE function syntax has the following arguments:

• Known_y’s Required. An array or cell range of numeric dependent data points.
• Known_x’s Required. The set of independent data points.

Create [SMADiff]: [1*[Simple Moving Avg of closing g-prices over 200 days; lag=0 days] - 1*[Simple Moving Avg of closing g-prices over 200 days; lag=10 days]]

I think this is the formula used in BCC calculations.

Thanks! I Knew it was different not really a slope or standard crossover but something else.

It’s fairly easy to compare today’s SMA to yesterday’s SMA. If it’s lower, the slope is negative.

Yes, I believe the ‘BCC version’ is just comparing the 200-DMA of today with that of 10 days ago. If today’s is lower, the slope is negative.
