Filter Exchange · Win Rate
msg #152612

Leaving out the big boys from previous generations (Jesse Livermore, Nicholas Darvas) the fairly recent crop of BMOCs (yes, the vast majority are dudes) have a win rate of around 60%. (I did a study of the win-records of the heavy-weights in grad' school 20 years ago). I bested them in the 6-months before the 2000 mega-meltdown, but that was living in the Land of Oz.
Since then I've come close to 80% in short sprints of a few months, but as the last 2-days show, its very difficult to sustain that record over any significant stretch of time....
Validea Capitol Management, an investment firm HQ'd at Tyson's Corner (Va.) offers "A Digital Advisor that Invests Using the Strategies of Wall Street Legends"; you might check with them to see their win-rate baseline.
(Disclosure: I have neither an account, nor employment history with that organization, nor any other interaction with them other than noticing the building they reside in when, on rare occasion, I visit the near--by shopping mall).
In any case, I wish you luck in your quest; please keep us posted on the resutls -

"...never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense." - Winston Churchill

So, with that admonition in mind, here's a site with 2 coding examples to chose from:

...and one from ninja trader that is downloadable.

Disclosure: I haven't tried any of these and can't write code with a flame thrower held to my head, so these examples are for informational purposes only...

Since ADX is the favored filter for refining selections, I suggest refining the tracking by breaking the picks into 2 groups: those above (25+) and those stocks identified above and below (24-) the suggested minimum to see how each set performs...

Many thanks to (Mr. or Ms.) Schumacher and (the same appellation as appropriate) Snappyfrog for their efforts; I'll give the modified model a fair shot for a while and report on results...

First, thanks.

Fetcher[slow stochastics crossed above 20
fast stochastics is above slow stochastics
price is between 0.5 and 10
average volume(20) is above 250000
close is above open

Next, is there a secondary confirmation that you use to winnow down the candidates, for example, confirmation of an upward move by 2 consecutive days of gains...?

Since comments are free...(although sometimes leading to flames)..I added some of my preferred parameters. Now let the flaming begin...

Fetcher[show stocks where market is not otcbb
market is not etf
price is between 2 and 20
avgvol(30) above 300000

close gained less than 9 percent over the last 5 days
and price is between 2 and 20
average day range is above 8

set{w%m, weekly atr(8)/ weekly ma(8)}
and w%M above 0.09
and w%M below 0.3
and add column w%m

set{ DayChg1 , close - close 5 days ago }
set{ DayChg2 , DayChg1 / close 5 days ago }
Set{ 5DayPctGain, DayChg2 * 100}
add column 5DayPctGain
and sort column 5 descending
Set{5DaysAgoPrice, close 5 days ago}
and add column 5DaysAgoPrice

Filter Exchange · My Version of Steve Primo Strategy 8 Filter (Long Only)

Comments...not criticisms...for what they're worth:
1st Comment: isn't the longest filter ever posted, but it's a good runner up.
2nd Comment: Looks promising, but given the simple rules to follow, there's a LOT of additional data shown; ("SORT COLUMN 30 DESCENDING" kind of points to that).
3rd Comment: Difficult to read the details even when I view the charts individually; cutting the time to 30 days helps a lot after getting the movement overview.
4th Comment: If this works, you'll save us a lot of money; Steve-a-rino's courses aren't cheap.
5th Comment: Of course, Thanks!
