Are you trading the market or a stock?
Each and every stock in the market has different people playing the "other side" or your trade. I would select your picks, follow your rules and generally watch the market for a general mood. When people are buying your picks (long) will usually go up much faster and the same holds true when people are selling. I use the general direction and attitude of the market to help me in determining whether to be aggressive or hold back some.

General Discussion · What do you do AFTER you run your filters?

Interesting question.
I spend some time doing a little research into why these stocks have come across my filters(Mainly bottoms and channels) and depending on the news or events I watch them for the move. I try to trade each stock differently since there are different people involved on the other side.
I do look for an increase in volume, size of orders on each side and block trades and where they are in the spread.
A good thing I have picked up from this website has been the "wait for green" theory. Has kept me from launching large baskets of trades and having 2 or 3 picks destroy the day for me.

If you thought you would never have a losing trade or that you would always be "up", and you really needed that money for something, I would strongly suggest you quit trading altogether and put your money in a money market or something like it. You lost over $450 per day plus commish. Thats not bad when the market is working againist you.
You stuck to your rules and they worked you only lost $2300.
Have you gone back and figured out how much you would be down in those positions if you were still in them?
How much you would be up?
Did you look at the winning trades you made?

If you want to continue trading, good for you, but I would prepare yourself for at least a possible 20% drawdown before you become profitable. Try to keep your head on the goal you have set and keep focused on your trading, constanly evaluate it, daily, hourly by the minute or by the trade.

Implied Volatility or IV is used to determine an options premium, often through a model like "Black Scholes". Of course it can be flawed since Black Scholes assume that IV doesn't change very much, if at all. Heres a good link for some info on IV.

I'm not sure you can get a good measure of IV from Stockfetcher. Of course I'm kinda new to trading options myslef but unless you can explain how to determine IV from the actions of the stock and how to forecast it, I'm not sure anyone can really help with it.

So how would I set it up to execute only those stocks which set off 3 of the filters in the watchlist? And thanks for your help, I'm very bad at this.

I think this what your looking for



Parameters RSIPeriod
Usage ERSI(15,7)

Description The ERSI uses the values from an exponential moving average (EMA) as input to the RSI computation. On StockFetcher, the first parameter of the ERSI represents the period used for the RSI computation and the second parameter is the period of the EMA used as input. By using EMA values as input, the ERSI will be less volatile than the standard RSI.
