The Combined Signal Approach (CSA) to technical analysis combines individual trading rules into a consensus signal that is more profitable than the individual signals alone. It could be that the CSA performs better than individual signals because information related to future price moves is dispersed among various trading rules. In addition, the CSA mitigates the problem of choosing between individual trading rules when they provide conflicting signals. This paper reviews the extant body of literature on the CSA. The purpose of this paper is to increase awareness of, and foster additional research on, the CSA model.
