General Discussion · In the spirit of sharing ... I'm A Strong Believer In using WATCHLISTS
msg #147457

I'm A Strong Believer In using WATCHLISTS. Consequently, I create watchlists where I'm attempting to utilize the thinking of folks smarter than I am. Every day (or night) I create watchlists using Investors Business Daily, Zacks and ValueLine. I also have some of my own like Electric Utilities. Also I have developed some strategies based on the creativity of certain StockFetcher subscribers and maybe adding some thoughts of my own. I probably have developed over 200 strategies and use 10 or more each day applying them to my WatchLists. Following is a simple one which I trade every day but only with my watchlists:
set{Shadow, day point range / opcl}
Shadow above 1
low is below ema(100)
close is above ema(100)
close ABOVE 10
volume is above 50000
Then I utilize the following rules:
...Buy at the Open
...Sell immediately during the day if it hits 2% profit
...Sell at the end of the first profitable day ... even if only a tiny profit (I trade using margin)
I build these rules into an automated strategy which I have coded with "EasyLanguage" utilizing TradeStation as my broker. "Most" of the time I'm out in one to two days. Some days, no stocks are selected and that's why I use a bunch of strategies.

I hope sharing this approach is helpful.

A few years ago I watched Hubert Senters trade a variation of this in his trading room. He did very well with it ... until he didn't. I have actally watched him lose several hundrd thousand dollars more than once,. I believe his error was that he never walked away from the trade when losing until it was too late. I also suspect his win loss ratio was fantastic, but, his profit factor was low, It seemed to me that, overall, he was probably making more from his seminars than from his trading.

What brokerage do you use to short stocks costing less than $5.00?

I've put in numerous requests over the years, and, while they are politely acknowledged, none have ever been implemented. I would not be surprised if SF dedicates no resources to upgrades and changes. When was the last time SF offered a new feature or even a minor improvement?
