So, I’m reading “Trend Trading for a Living” by Carr. In it, he talks about a pullback method, and I thought I would try coding it in SF.

Here are his rules:
Identify a stock that has pulled back to an up sloping 20MA or 50MA.

20MA is rising, and is above the 50MA

The stochastics (5,3 period) is to or below the oversold 20 line.

Average Volume(60)> 500000

Close is > 15

Close is < than Close 5 days ago * 1.15

Below is my SF code.

Let me know if anyone has any tweaks to add. Would love your feedback.

Thanks!

MA(50) is above 15

stochastic %K(5,1,3) crossed below 25 in the past 5 days
and low has been above the MA(50) for the last 30 days
MA(20) has been above the MA(50) for the last 30 days
close is above MA(50)
close is below close 5 days ago * 1.15
close is above open
close is above MA(50)

Average Volume(60) is above 500000
Volume is above Average Volume(60)

You cannot use multiple calculations in one sentence of code

Close is < than Close 5 days ago * 1.15

should be

set{x, close 5 days ago * 1.15}
close below x

Average Volume(60) is above 500000
Volume is above Average Volume(60)

Thanks Sam

Here is the pullback filter I have on file

Fetcher[20 day slope of the close is above 0
and rsquared(close,45) is above 0.50
and stderr(close,45) is below 0.25
and add column stderr(close,45)
and close is above 5.00
and average volume(30) is above 250000
and stock closed below ema (8)

Hi Miketranz,

Could you please explain why you sort column 5 (Correlation FMI 200) by descending? Does this mean the lower the FMI 200 number, the better candidate it is for a possible trade?

Thank you for sharing!

Ruaquik,I tweeked the filter for deeper pullbacks,plus added MA's.I like to enter when or if price crosses back over from below.
Fetcher[Show stocks where RSI(2) crossed below 15 within the last 1 day
and average volume(30) is above 50000
add column corr(fmi,80,close) is above 0.85
add column corrfmi,200,close) is above 0.7
and draw MA (50)and draw MA (25) and draw MA (9)
