Dude...the record shows I have no problems making a public spectacle of myself in the interests of a good cause (which this certainly is) but this is so far beyond me that it would be useless to stick my head above the trench. (Multi-dimensional physics is the outside of my envelope). I wish you and any takers the best with this challenge.

I'll wade in to the fray; no stranger to being insulted for my efforts and having been a fool for lesser things...


Draw weekly ift(5,1) line at .90
Add column weekly ift(5,1)

draw aroon up(10)
add column aroon up(10)

For the brave, play the IFT rise and plateau (chart view); for the less adventurous use the Aroon...


I tested this in August and September of this year in paper trading simply as an exercise (as I do not like trading ETFs) and it worked very well, each of the very few trades executed showed a net profit;

Back-testing has never worked well in judging any models I use as it cannot take into account the individual's tolerance for risk, ability to trade "at will" rather than "when able" and a host of other factors that make life lively;

There is always a lag absolute optimal in trading if one adheres strictly to the chart lines. however my limited 2-month testing always resulted in a positive on exiting a position as the loss on the day traded was off-set by a substantial profit margin for the period the security was held...

My compliments Cheese.

Copying your code into a spreadsheet, then reducing all double- and triple-spaces to single lines, I believe you've topped TRO as creating the longest filter on Stockfetcher, clocking in at a whopping 229 lines.

Dude, could you be a little more specific in your definition of "bear"? A low RSI pretty much identifies a stock that's going down, and if you run the filter today (based on Fridfay's market data) all the picks are down in price. That's pretty "bearish." What did you have in mind?

So "bullish" performance (actual) is actually "bearish" performance (projected); interesting interpretation...and quite probably true.

"What is the Martingale System
The Martingale system is a system of investing in which the dollar value of investments continually increases after losses, or the position size increases with a lowering portfolio size. The Martingale system was introduced by French mathematician Paul Pierre Levy in the 18th century.

BREAKING DOWN Martingale System

The Martingale system is a very risky method of investing. The main idea behind the Martingale system is that statistically, you cannot lose all the time, and therefore, you should increase the amount allocated in investments — even if they are declining in value — in anticipation of a future increase. The Martingale system is commonly compared to betting in a casino. When a gambler using this method loses, he or she doubles the bet. By repeatedly doubling the bet when he or she loses, the gambler, in theory, will eventually even out with a win. This assumes the gambler has an unlimited supply of money to bet with, or at least enough money to make it to the winning payoff.

Basic Example of the Martingale System

To understand the basics behind the strategy, let's look at a basic example. Suppose you have a coin and engage in a betting game of either heads or tails with a starting wager of $1. There is an equal probability that the coin will land on heads or tails, and each flip is independent (the prior flip does not impact the outcome of the next flip). As long as you stick with the same call of either heads or tails, you would eventually, given an infinite amount of money, see the coin land on heads (or tails), if that's your call, and thus recoup all of your losses, plus $1. The strategy is based on the premise that only one trade is needed to turn your fortunes around."

Every post deserves a here's my moderately informed resposne. I've been researching/using stock filters/models for a few years (made a lot of money/lost a lot of money) and one of my basic conclusions is that every market has its own personality and its own "play style."

Until about August of last year I had pretty good success (avg return of 5% = a week) playing a model that used % Advances, P&F Charts, MACD and classic RSI patterns to pick winners. In August, however, the market stopped playing by the rules I was using to win.

For example, one of the classic rules for using RSI is that stocks above 80 are overbought and are poison, while stocks below 20 are oversold and are fantastic bargains. Yet at about that point (August, 2010) stocks in the 80s and even 90s started going substantially higher in weekly plays...very much against classical theory and what had worked for me up until then.

My tentative conclusion is that this filter may well work (and may work well) but you should play it on paper for at least a couple of months tracking weekly or daily picks for a variety of time-frames (day, week, multiple weeks) and see what, if any, time-frame works.

(All of the above is my humble opinion based on humbling experience...)
