Multi-year Bull and Bear Market Trends, using monthly MACD

AMEX:SPY   SPDR S&P 500 ETF

I noticed that the past two peaks have been signaled by monthly MACD values. Here is the logic:

If Signal > 0:
If MACD > Signal: Then BUY
If MACD < Signal: Then SELL

If Signal < 0: Then BUY

This algorithm has only given 3 SELL signals in the past 20 years. Keep in mind that this SELL signal was more common in previous decades (1960's = 5, 1970's = 3, 1980's = 3). While a couple of these were great trades (SELL @ Jun 1969 and June 1973) most of these trades were small losses, and some were terrible trades (SELL @ November 1987             ). This system is not perfect and it may make wrong decisions.

The most recent SELL signal was generated on July 1st, 2015.

BUY signals can be generated when the MACD rises above the Signal, but they also occur when the Signal values crosses down across the zero line. The past two market bottoms have been predicted by the signal line crossing zero.

This is an update. The TATS1 system is still giving a sell signal, starting July 1st, 2015. We are almost a year later, with prices about the same level.

The signal to buy is when the blue line rises above the orange line, or if the orange line hits zero. Good luck everything!
