LazyBear mentioned that in John F. Carter's book, Chapter 11, "Mastering the Trade", that "Mr. Carter suggests waiting till the first gray after a black cross, and taking a position in the direction of the momentum (for ex., if momentum value is above zero, go long). Exit the position when the momentum changes (increase or decrease --- signified by a color change)." I have done just that. Now at each "first gray after a black cross", there are now Bearish and Bullish signals.. The signals only appear in the direction of the momentum.
