Slim Miller's Long-Term Trend Trading Chart

This is a great chart to help determine long term action as well as signs of a breakdown

Other uses:
I use this chart to see if I am buying into a counter trend rally. Also, excellent for ETF's and 401k's, IMO.

Open the chart and check for clues.

BTW, my short term, "be careful" signal is when the Hull MA changes polarity. My absolute time to get in/out signal comes at the cross of the 43 week EMA. Your signal should be what you make it.

@john3 43 weeks is an EMA used by people at stockcharts. Others use a 47 week. There is no right or wrong answer.
As I've mentioned, find what works for you and make it your own.

Yes, I know that is what they use. The question is, why? Just wanted to know their rationale for using 43 weeks, if there is any. If they just have chosen a random number, that is cool, too, no judgment.

They don't give rationale for it. A person could just as easily use a 40 week SMA which probably matches up with a 43 week EMA. But, I really don't know the why.
I just use it, it works for me.
 
Very impressed with this chart. It contains one study called FW_MOBO_Basic. Is there any chance to get the source code for that? Not only because I'm interested in understanding the logic inside to not trust only in a black box but also because it does some interesting UI things that I want to take for a ToS code I'm writing. Thanks!

TDA has locked the source code for the FW_MOBO_Basic, so it is not available.

This thread has several look-alike versions:

Be aware rad changed several of the inputs, so you need to modify them to match the original to get it to display similar results.
