    - Are you still using the Put/Call Ratio (PCR) data from CME or ISE to measure investors’ overall sentiment in U.S. market? It is time to upgrade!

A simple rule, "MPCD < 0 then long SPY for the next day", could generate CAGR > 10%, Sharpe ratio > 1.1, and averaged maximum drawdown (daily observation) < -8%; Longer holding periods are also profitable (with good return/risk ratios). See the following chart for performances. Please check the white paper (download the evaluation package) for details.
