Thank you kindly for your help.

However I click your fetcher "index is djia" and still get 28 stocks. I paste your words on my filters and get only 28 stocks. Maybe is my stockfetcher subscription.

When filtering for DOW 30 or DJIA we get 28 Symbols.
How can we add the missing ones: JPM and DIS?
I will appreciate your help.

Thank you for your advice. It did not take the clean install cd. They did a good job. The desktop is in the computer store. Good point with the brokerage account, I appreciate it.I called TS and the account was not compromised (not yet), the money is there and my "shorts" are tanking below the line (so far! we'll see the next couple of weeks).
Best! HR.

CAUTION!!!!! my computer got trashed. One of the programs I downloaded was this T-3 Fibs ProTrader software Nexgen Software Services Inc. Maybe this one did not damage my computer. But when you download the sample software they send you to your trade station platform which I have (where I trade) When you sign in they said it needs tons of data between such a date to such a date and then THEY PUT YOU ON A QUEUE to download at their convenience, etc. etc.
Again, they are trying to sell a $ 14.500.00 program that "does wonders" it will predict prices, reversals, support etc.etc.
Now in the sunset of my life I learned that this people make money not on trading but selling systems. If their programs mint money, why bother selling it.
That goes for all the Fontanellis, Oliver Velez, option guru Shaeffer, the Cowboy, wizetrade, 4rxmade easy, options made easy etc. etc. that peddle systems.
I still did not acquire a good system. But manage to "swing" some profits from this arena thanks to many good postings from this forum.
Some one said in this forum,and repeated: Draw your line, and take action when price goes above or below your line. That is the best I heard. I got some lines, and indeed prices go above or below, I'm taking action... it's helping.
Best! HR

My desktop got trashed. Last night I downloaded software from couple of threads: The Fibonacci stuff and from free gifts: how to trade AAPL GOOG, free e-books etc.etc. Some how a download infected the computer Now it boots but cannot run a program or even run the re-format diskettes. I'm not complaining, the computer repair shop will deal with the problem and reformat the whole thing.
Most of the postings are terrific, helpful and instructive, but some how malicious minds are set to inflict damage. Anti virus, firewalls, spy ware software will not stop them. Maybe CAUTION will not even help. So long for now... HR

Thank you! But this one is even more complex.
Let me refrase: on the following filter:

set{T10, count(10 day slope of the close above 0,1)}
set{T60, count(60 day slope of the close above 0,1)}
set{T200, count(200 day slope of the close above 0,1)}

Set{u1, T200 * 1}
Set{u2, T60 * 10}
Set{u3, T10 * 100}

Set{uu, u1 + u2}
Set{TREND, uu + u3}

set{CCb,days(close is above close 1 day ago,100)}
set{CCa,days(close is below close 1 day ago,100)}
set{CxC, CCa - CCb}

set{E5b,days(close is above ema(5),100)}
set{E5a,days(close is below ema(5),100)}
set{CxE5, E5a - E5b}

set{E1326b,days(ema(13) above ema(26),100)}
set{E1326b1, count(E1326b above -1 , 1)}
set{E1326b2, E1326b * E1326b1}
set{E1326a,days(ema(13) below ema(26),100)}
set{E1326a1, count(E1326a above -1 , 1)}
set{E1326a2, E1326a * E1326a1}

set{E13xE26, E1326a2 - E1326b2}

set{v, volume 1 day ago}
set{volinc, volume - v}
set{volpc, volinc / v}
set{volpct, volpc * 100}

set{VolZ, days(volume < 1,100)}
set{VolUp, days(volume is below volume 1 day ago,100)}
set{VolDn, days(volume is above volume 1 day ago,100)}
set{VolCnt, VolUp - VolDn}








You show a trend --- on a straight line on the upper or lower side. I would like to filter ONLY when the line changes from the low to the up side and viceversa.
Thank you!

Some time ago you wrote this complex filter (very good indeed!). On the chart you show a TREND 111. How do you filter stocks by two parameters only:
1) When the TREND moves to 100 (or leaves 0)
2) When the TREND moves to 0 (or leaves 100)

I noticed that (generally) when the line (TREND) is on the upper level the stocks are trending up.
thank you

maxreturn: Sorry I missed the timing tool(s): mostly daily CCI(14) over 0 and/or Aroon(25) Oscillator crossing above 0. I will start looking closely if Aroon UP(25) crosses below 70. And sometimes emotional attachement to the up or downside moves. HR

Straight answer before I become repetitive:
1) How far out of the money: with Google at least $30 below the current price. Others like BBBY, EBAY, MMM etc. the first out of the money.
2) How far time wise: 30 days or less on Monday, Tuesday or the first week after the previous expiration the 3rd Friday of the month (Expiration) where premiums still high.
3) Strike apart: One level, $5 on sotcks under $100. With Google $ 10
On May I sold 240/230, June 280/270, now in July 270/260 with credit (income) of $2100, $4000, and $2400 for July for 10 contracts each. Even if I was forced to close the spread today I could buy it for only $500and keep the other $1900.00 (GOU TN / GOU TL, .90/.40)
In general (personal opinion), vertical credit spreads whether Puts or Calls have limited potential profits and the risk is greater than the potential income, but the risk is limited too. However the probabilities are superb: if the stock is droping and you write the vertical Call spread you have 2 out of 3 chances of making money, one if the stock does not move that much, two if it keeps dropping. Viceversa with the Puts if the stock is moving up.
Remember that with out of the money options people are paying for time, speculation, hope, for calendar vs. trading days, etc. Sometimes we get nasty surprises like July 7 with the London bombing, MMM dropped $2 to $3 immediately and I was getting $1 with $4 risk. It reversed and finally was all right, but those things happen. Besides I balance positions with stocks that are moving down and up. Over all it is a good source of steady income.
Commissions will make a severe dent if you use OptionsXpress or any other discount brokerage house that charge high minimums. I pay $2 per spread with Trade Station and MBTrading. MBtrading I had to do it manually and it is a hassle. Trade Station charges $ 99.95 a month for the use of the platform but you click on the spread itself rather than negotiating two sides. It is very easy and fast.
Final tought, I never, never write naked puts or calls. Many years ago when I was a Broker for a major House, a colleague of mine accumulated over $ 1 million in profits in less than 5 years,writing NAKED way out of the money Puts and Calls on two issues only: OEX and IBM, and then on the CRASH of October 17, 1987 (THU, FRI and that Monday) he lost over $ 1.7 million. That week he emptied his desk and went out to file for Protection. He earned the 1/16 on his calls but his 1/16 puts became $40, $50, $60 Puts. Since then I can not understand why anybody will recommend or write straight naked options.

More than glad. Easy to do, hard to explain. I will take some time tonight PST (California time). HR
