Fetcher[Show stocks where close is above open and Slow Stochastics(5) Fast %K crossed above 25 and volume is more than 150% greater than average volume (90)]



Couldn't get average volume plotted for anything longer than 90 days, but one could surmise that the value for average volume (90) would probably be about the same as the value for average volume (180).

People view "gambling" in different ways. Yes, by the book, it would be considered gambling overall, as it is a venture of chance. However, some people see pure gambling as a pure blind bet with no edge or skill involved, such as the purchase of a lottery ticket or a spot on a roulette table. I believe that is more what he was referring to when he said he didn't gamble. The "blind" aspect of gambling is minimized with the edge that market knowledge, money management, and the application of good filters and indicators, etc. provide. On a side note, many longer term "investors" I have conversed with in the past consider short term trading to be gambling, while long term investing is not. I think that train of thought is a bit odd and off base in that we are all looking for the same thing in the market, just over different time frames and analysis methods.

Yeah I read this one when you posted it on the Muddy Group, and I agree it is great... Quite funny too.

The filter I posted above is showing decent results for shorts as the overall market as fallen in the last few days. If nothing else, it shows some good merit to cross - market analysis.

Here's one that includes a decreasing linear regression slope with a short term divergence of RSI and Williams %R - this filter is just the opposite of a filter I have to look for long positions. This filter isn't producing the best results, as the overall market has an increasing bias, and you should tweak it to your timeframe, etc. Anyway, while I was looking back on this filter, I did see that a lot of the stocks which failed the filter (i.e. kept rising) did eventually stall at old price resistance (double tops, closed gaps, etc.). I would definitely look for that as well if you look over this filter, and THEN go short.

Fetcher[Show stocks where close is less than 0.1% below top linear regression line (60) and close is less than 1% below top linear regression line (60) and LRS (60) is below 0 and RSI (2) is above RSI (2) 1 day ago and Williams %R (6) is below Williams %R (6) 1 day ago and price is near top Bollinger Band (20) and price is between 5 and 40 and average volume (90) is above 250000 and date offset is 0]

I also suggest paying much attention to the Muddy group and the filters discussed within. I use RSI (2), linear regression, Bollinger Bands, and Williams %R to look for trades - some that are suggested on the board and some of my own. I have made money in the past, even a few short term gains of over 100%, but I was never consistent. The Muddy group will get you consistent profits, and they are great people, all working together. That group and Stockfetcher are the best things that have happened to my trading. I've talked with Muddy a few times - he is astoundingly helpful and cordial; a great guy. Keep at it and you will get your $400,000. Beware the use of margin though. I have the pattern day trader brand, and got the 4X buying power. While it is tempting sometimes, I never use margin. One bad fall will cause much trouble, and those bad falls can and do happen, usually in the form of gaps. Best of trading profits to you!!

Hello, a filter like this should get you started per your request for ADX, + and - DI, and 3 day candle pattern, but the backtesting looks poor - it should be tweaked to your liking, and to get better results. There are many great filters around that perform much better.
