Market Trend Signal

Current Market Trend Signal 




<==  See "Past Signal" Buttons and Results on the top left.
Actual Performance Results from Signals "as they happened".

Market Trend Signal Data
The performance results for our "Core" model (MIPS3/MF) were calculated using MIPS stock market timing signals that are verified by for all dates after 11/04/2005.

Results with the MIPS1/VLF,MIPS2/LF, and MIPS4/MF+ models were calculated using MIPS timing signals that are verified by for all dates after 01/30/2012 and with backtested market timing signals from the MIPS timing models prior to tat date.  All market timing signals from these models are shown in this section. Only MIPS Members will be able to see the most "current" stock signals; all others are restricted to "past" stock timing signals for all MIPS models (delayed by 60 days or more).

Actual performance results "as they happened" are under our Signals/Results tab in the main menu.  All other performance results/graphs posted on our website other than the on Signals/Results pages are mainly from the very latest version of the MIPS models.  Our backtested results for new versions are highly reliable because: (a) over the last 10 years we have consistently developed new algorithms that improved our existing models, (b) after all changes and updates, new versions of the software contain at least 80-95% of the same code as in the older versions that they replaced, and (c) we would have to be insane (or stupid) to commit professional suicide by releasing new models that we are not 99% sure are better than our existing models.

To extinguish the above, we have used the names below for the signals from the Actual/Verified models and from the signals from the Latest Versions of our models

How Each Trade's Gain/Loss Is Calculated AND How Results Are Reported 

The dates shown in this section are "Signal Dates" (i.e., the dates that buy/short/cash trend signals are issued by MIPS from our models).  Remember, our members execute their orders on the next trading day's open following each Signal Date (this is called the "Trade Date"). 

So, when our MIPS3 model issued a Short Signal on 12/12/2007 and a Cash Signal 3/14/2008 ("Signal Dates"), our members would have:
1.) sold their long position and "gone short" on the market open on 12/13/2007, and
2.) "covered" their short position ("buy to cover") on the market open on 3/17/2008, and
3.) stayed 100% in cash until the next Signal Date.

The trades from the MIPS models are made on the Open, and we calculate all performance stats using those trades.  However, since most investors check their results on the close (and NOT the Open), we report our results on the Close (after taking into consideration the results from the morning trades).




As with almost all software, the algorithms (and/or code) are improved over time, as in Windows, Internet Explorer, AntiVirus Programs, etc.  Otherwise, of course, we would all still be using DOS.

As software companies improve their algorithms (and fix "bugs"), the software code gets identified internally by "Versions".  So, Version 4 is a later release than Version 3; Version 4.8.2 means that there have been 8 releases of Version 4 and 2 new releases to Version 4.8; and so on..  For example, I am using Internet Explorer Version 11.1.65.

However, when a software developer makes "significant changes" to any version, they change the name of the software instead of simply calling it a new version (like Windows8 => Windows10;  Internet Explorer10 => Intrnet Explores11;  MIPS3 => MIPS$, etc).
Actual MIPS Performance
On our website, the actual performance of the MIPS models (as reported when "Signal Change" emails were sent to MIPS Members) are under the "Signals" tab in the main menu on our website.  We will never change these signals because they are from "actual" signals sent to MIPS Members and to 3rd Party tracking companies; and they represent the corresponding reported performance.  For example, on the  page, all performance statistics related to MIPS3 are from the actual MIPS3 signals.    An exception to this is when our signals are identified as "backtested", like the signal dates before a MIPS model was released.

MIPS Performance From Latest Version
Throughout the rest of our website, the performance for the MIPS models are usually from the latest version of the MIPS models. This shows how the later version of each MIPS model would have performed. If we did our job correctly, the later versions of each MIPS model should be better than the original.
