Interesting question.  Suppose an answer exists.  Would someone post it here?

The classical Chicago School answer is of course that you can't forecast
stock market prices "at large" or "that easily", at least not profitably
after transaction costs and once you adjusted for the risk level you have
are taking.  If you are a broker with minuscule transaction costs then maybe
you have something.  Then again, you don't really hear about successful
schemes for the obvious reasons.
