Filter Exchange · $2-3 gain every 2 to 3 weeks

Hi,

I'm new to SF and have been having a look round the forums. I think I have become a little lost.

I've been looking at money management plans and have come up with one that would give nice profits if I could hit a couple of stocks that make $3 gain in 2 weeks or so. I live in the UK and have the advantage of being able to spread bet on US stocks. It's tax free!

I'm looking for a filter that would:

1. Trade stocks with a market cap > $1billion (I already have this)
2. Daily volume > 100,000 (I already have this)
3. Have a good chance of gaining $2-$3 in 2 weeks

The problem is with 3). I appreciate no-one can predict the future, but if anyone has a filter that is fairly reliable in this area, I'd be really grateful.

Many thanks,
Alex Chambers

Dear all,

I've been using a purely technical trading system on the forex that utilises inside bars. I've had a good return from it. However, they system can also be used on stocks - and I'm planning to use stockfetcher to select stocks for me. SF looks great.

If you've never heard of inside bars, they are bars that have a high and a low less than the bar before. They look like this:

|
| |
| ^Inside bar

Their importance is that they reflect an area where the market is consolidating into a tight range of low volatility. The market always explodes out of a tight range - it's natural cycle is to go from low volatility to high volatility and back again.

Of course, the trick is to determine which of these inside bars are "significant" - ie. have the greatest chance of movement thereafter. This is where the system comes in. It uses inside bars at fibonacci levels, support/resistance, etc... Inside bars can be used on any financial instrument (futures, indexes, stocks, etc) and any time frame.

The URL is:

This may come across as a blatant advert. It is in one way. I own several trading systems (yes - I was looking for the "holy grail"), but I have stuck on this. I've been making a good return on the forex. I really like this system and recommend at least checking it out.

I am going to be using the system to scan for inside bar stocks in stockfetcher, so I'll keep you posted with the results and any stockfetcher scans I use. If anyone is interested, I'll post up buy and sells I do.

Hi,

How would I construct a filter that selected stocks with the following:

- the latest week's weekly volume was 100% greater than the average weekly volume for the past 28 weeks

- a weekly closing price that was 10% above the previous week's closing price

Thanks,
Alex

Hi,

How do I screen for stocks that are 15% within their high (eg- price is above $8.5 if the high is listed as being $10)?

Thanks,
Alex


Filter Exchange · Darvas stocks

Hi,

After starting a thread a few days ago on how to screen technically for Darvas stocks, I'm wondering how to limit the list of stocks in their top box that are shown to a more managable list. I'm screening for stocks that are breaking out of a period of consolidation to a new all time high. I now want to prune this list to those stocks that have the best chance of moving higher.

Does anyone have any suggestions here - eg:-

- Low float stocks move more than higher float
- Screen for high earnings ratings (as in IBD)

Thanks,
Alex

Thanks.

Mark, there is some confusion to my point 2 - I am looking for stocks that are bouncing in their top box. If the high price forms the top of the box, I'm guessing the current price could be anywhere within 15% of this high (not 85% above the high price), assuming it is bouncing. I manually view all stocks to see if they are indeed bouncing. I then buy on breakout to a further new high - ie. through the box top.

Trek - can you explain your method more. It sounds interesting. How would I scan for it?

Thanks,
Alex

Hi,

I'm using SF to run a Darvas type screen. He looked for stocks at an all time high and whose 52 week high is at least 2x the 52 week low.

How would I:

1) Screen for stocks whose 52 week high is at least 2x the 52 week low?
2) Screen for stocks whose high price is above 85% of the all time high?

Thanks,
Alex
