I'm substituting the SPX Barometer with a new project.
When developing a mechanical trading system, it is advisable to check how it performs on MSFT. The chart below offers the outlines of a trading system designed to monitor the trend and flag overbought/oversold levels.
You are invited to interpret it any way you want.
