I got a great idea from the zoo-overplot demo to make a very helpful visualization of system entry and exit.  Since the lm-based system presented in Unrequited lm Love is newest, I will use this system, but apply to the Nikkei 225 instead of the Russell 2000.

THIS IS STILL NOT INVESTMENT ADVICE, AND I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE LOSSES THAT ARE VERY LIKELY IF YOU PURSUE THIS APPROACH.

Here is the new system visualization.

#add another neat chart for visualization

#this one actually has an additional mean reverting element
