all of this has now been running for one year.
has this worked ? predominantly yes
getting up signals is not too much of a problem, with the best alpha's this is over 80%, one alpha approaching 100% (alpha7) but only produces a stock pick on average about once per month, which is great if you want 11.5% per month, I need 20 alpha7's.
the sell signal is a little more problematic
currently I am working on a flat 11.5% up from buy price to sell, which I am trying to reduce to between 3 and 5 days giving me the required about 3% per day.
my trading strategy needs some thought now
