Good Point. I have yet to really come up with a swing trade system that I have been consistently happy with. The indicators I use work best on a 1 minute chart for scalps, and a 5 minute chart for a little bit longer plays.I tend to prefer the action, but do not see why they would have any issues over a multiple day point, especially with a well defined 1% target.

I would not recommend holding these ETF's over night.

Out of Faz again 13.57. @ .82%.

Need to wait for indicators to reset again. It had some extra growth but profit is profit. I am looking back at FAS again for another rebound. These are just too fun ;)

Like I said though, these babies are acting really really strange the last week. Before this week, they were highly predictable. Hopefully that will settle down again.

Day trade these on paper using your favorite indicators and see how you do. When you go to actually trade them in real life, trade the same way you did on paper. No emotions. As you can see, I am in out in and out.

Sometimes I take a small loss, doesn't matter, I can always pop back in. My buy and sell are completely dependent on the indicators... could care less about looking at the candle chart. When the crossovers happen that's when it's go time.

I highly recomend trading the F's (FAZ/FAS).

Tons of volume, and they tend to span 2-5% movements each and every day, but you have to be able to pick indicators.

One is a bear ETF (FAS), the other bear (FAZ), so they are continually moving against each other. One will be up, one will be down each and every day.

The funds have been acting extremly weird the last week, so trading has been light... but so far today:
symbol buy sell

FAS 30.64 31.5 2.81%
FAZ 12.6 13.25 5.16%

and currently back in FAZ @ 13.46

FAS Just had a 3-1 split so that has really helped percentage leverage out a lot. Last week the price was > 100 bucks share, now it's 30.

Currently, I have sat on it hoping it has a little bit more steam left in it only to watch it fall and lose some money. This is something I need to work on myself.

My biggest issue, is staying consistent with my methodology. It seems every other week I am trying out new scans and techniques -- and it is costing me.

I feel that we must continually be looking ahead and developing and advancing ourselves... but I am not allowing what works 'right now' to flourish. Exit points need work too... I get to greedy. I am having a hard time reading price action and the change in momentum. My emotions, I am sure, are clouding my logical reasoning.

I have been enjoying this filter a lot. It seems that when played right, a 2% squeeze is possible each and every time... and of course there are some runners as well.

Has anyone else been experimenting with this at all? The only thing I am not completely positive is if it is just a result of the current environment.

Slightly modified again with Fib Pivots attached.

Actually, this is where my original scan for these is at.
FinViz - a little FUNdaMentals

I guess just run the scan over there and do a symlist here? While this list produces a very nice list of long term investments... the entry points are rather horrendous... hah. Sucks not being able to backtest though.

Looking for...

and sales growth past 5 years > 25%
and return on equity > 15%
and within 0-15% of 52 week high
and average volume(90) > 100000
and EPS growth quarter over quarter > 25%
and gross margin > 0
and EPS growth next year > 0
and sales growth quarter over quarter > 25%

as a start. Looking for stocks that have a continues sales growth as well as P/S growth each quarter. This is a rather 'safe' long scan. But I need help translating it to SF ;)
