Chris, thanks for showing how powerful a simple moving averages can be – especially in a bear market.

What does “vs MA * ”  mean?  Buy-and-Hold vs MA  ?

Looking at “Portfolio Moving Average Timeline” 2008-11, MA: 10 month :
the MA worked really well e.g. for EWG  (Germany; Buy-and-Hold vs MA: -13.8%) or IWM (Russel 2000, -11.6%) ; but NOT e.g. for GLD (Gold, Buy-and-Hold vs MA +19.3%)  or SH (S&P short, +4.8%)

'vs MA * ' is the current position of the ETF vs. its MA. The asterisk is for the footnote, which shows the calculation date.
