Can we do something similar (or better) using Fuzzy Logic?

Here's the setup: (here for some Fuzzy Logic backround)

We create a basic membership function for the RSI(2) indicator: "Low", Medium" and "High"

We create a basic membership functions for the Correlation* indicator: "Low","High".

We implement these rules:

1.//mean revert - LOW Autoccorelation

IF "rsi" is "Low" AND "autocorrel" is "Low", "Action", 1 ; //Buy

IF "rsi" is "High" AND "autocorrel" is "Low", "Action", -1 ; //Sell

//MOM - HIGH Autocorrelation

IF "rsi" is "Low" AND "autocorrel" is "High", "Action", -1 ; //Sell

IF "rsi" is "High" AND "autocorrel" is "High", "Action", 1 ; //Buy

Here's the Equity:

Conclusion:

As with Regime switching we can use Fuzzy Logic to solve the problem of using one strategy for trading pre- and post-2000 SP500. Furthermore, we have more robust and less specific rules to deal with (buy on "Low" RSI rather than Buy=RSI2<30).

*By "Correlation Indicator" I am referring to the 22-day Correlation (see previous post) between the current return and the previous day's return. In Amibroker Code:

Dayreturn=ROC(C,1);

AutoCor=Correlation(Dayreturn,Ref(Dayreturn,-1),22);
