Ed,

Is there a way to modify this filter so that people with a basic subscription can run it?

Thanks

Rich

@roca1018,

I'm not certain which filter you are referring to, can you please clarify?

Thanks,

Thanks Ed. You posted the filter on this thread on 12/4/19. It requires a higher subscription.

@roca1018,

Try the version below with a modification that Cheese implemented:

Thanks,

set{var8, count(tru13 > 0 ,252)} and add column var8 {next day losers }
set{var20, var5 + var8} add column var20 {total hits }

set{var7, Tru12*var3 } draw var7

Ed,

There are 306 stocks listed for the close on 12/20/19. Is it best to choose stocks based on their historical
winning % ?

Thanks

Rich

@Rich,

1. I have not tested whether or not it is best to choose stocks based on their historical winning % for this filter's results so I can't really answer your question.

2. Please remember that this filter is the first in a series of Weinstein exploratory filters I'm planning on trying out, when I get around to it. This filter is only testing the 30 week/150 day moving avg crossover and none of the other Weinstein key criteria.

3. Also, the Xarlor filter I started with has some criteria which may or may not be applicable to pure Weinstein theory.such as the section on general assumptions about price and volume.

Thanks,
Ed S.

Not sure if this applies..

Fetcher[
set{wr, var5/var20}
set{wr%, wr * 100}
]

my eye test on sorting wr%...100% wr wasn't conclusive i.e. a 100% wr ended having higher gains vs lower wr.
