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!

Dude, simply do a search for atr; a quick look turns up at least 40 pages referencing that metric, with an average of 27 entries per page. Quick math tells us that's around 1,080 candidate discussions, example filters/models, exclamations and declamations on the topic. Read, disassemble / reassemble the examples, try a few dozen (paper-trading and tracking) and see what works for you.
The pro's here are very helpful, but they're more responsive to specific technical questions (you need to try and fail, then ask for help) than addressing general category concerns...

...for what its worth (and always consider the source of an opinion), I'd look for a confirming metric like sort% or ft(10)....

For what it's worth (and my opinion is usually pennies on the dollar) I think much depends on your style of trading.
Over the long-term, for short-term trading (to make sense of that, in on Monday at open, out by close on Friday) I've found the sort% factor to be invaluable....

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.

While the video is informative, and the presenter enthusiastic, a bit of background helps to set the context for his presentation....

"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."

Here's a simple jazz riff on the filter above (with some of my preferred add-ins) for those of us who do better with numbers than charts. (Or, like me, prefer the obvious to be clearly shown...).

Market is NASDAQ
Average Volume(30) > 300000
Volume > 300000
Price > 3

set{x1, close 22 day high}
set{x2, x1-low}
set{x3, x2/x1}
set{wvf, x3*100}
set{x4, cstddev(wvf,20)}
set{sDev, 2*x4}
set{midline, cma(wvf,20)}
set{lowerBand, midline - sDev}
set{upperBand, midline + sDev}
set{rangeHigh50, wvf 50 day high}
set{rangeHigh, rangeHigh50 *0.85}
set{rangeLow50, wvf 50 day low}
set{rangeLow, rangeLow50 * 1.01}

draw wvf
draw upperBand on plot wvf
draw rangeHigh on plot wvf
add column upperBand
add column rangeHigh

and upperBand > rangeHigh
set{diff, upperBand - rangeHigh}
add column diff
sort column 7 descending

Might be worth paper-trading for a while to see if there is an actual pattern at play.

I can't comment on the value of the filter, but you've got a badge of honor for having beaten TRO for length...and that's no short achievement - .
