As we've discussed in the past, shorting ETFs if done right, can be very profitable.
Decay is a great benefit. As I have illustrated before, Shorting inverse leveraged ETFs are very ez, but shorting long leveraged ETFs are more of a challenge. Waiting 12 weeks for an etf to drop is too long.
If you have any interest in expanding knowledge on this topic, please contribute here.

As stated before price has to cross above ma(20) before it can be considered a short.
We are ultimately seeking a system with a success ratio of 90% or more.
Standard error and bollinger bands work great shorting inverse ETFs, but they do not seem sufficient shorting long ETFs.

I'm not sure if anyone trades like this as it might be a bit too sophisticated for this brood but if so,
(The Brood as it stands, happens to be one of my favorite horror movies)
