KSK8, thanks for your contribution to this forum. I don't think you instigated the exchange. I am just reminded about someone like Kevin who left and many have missed his contrubutions.

graftonian,
My preference is to keep the discussion to KSK8's shorting methodology. Otherwise, it's like throwing a bunch of different socks in a drawer and having to sort through the bunch every time to find a pair.

A separate thread for Option calls would make it easier to track that performance.

There's a lot to like about these Stockfetcher forums. One thing I don't like is all the chest bumping and testosterone fill posts that really have nothing to do with trading. They often devolve into personal attacks. I've seen good people run out of here and it's too bad.

Thanks KSK8. Interesting post.
I've heard the costs to borrow these "hard to borrow" stocks can be quite high.
Can you advise what the typical costs would be to trade this - and how much it eats into your profit?
What is Centerpoint's minimum account balance?
Thank you.

Questions for KSK8

1. Are you paper trading or live trading?

2. If live trading, what broker are you using?
Looking at Interactive Brokers "View Shortable Stocks" list shows that these stocks would have been hard to borrow.
Opening prices of stocks selected were:
AQB 3.9
BIOC 1.2
ZN 0.89
SLNO 2.91
ESTR 2.07

3. Do you sell at market or do you use a limit order? Entry prices for some stocks seem to be higher than the market open price. If you set your entry at market and shares aren't available to short, do you just leave your order open hoping it will fill during the day?

Some short systems backtest great but are difficult to trade.

Thanks.

I saw that mahkoh posted on your other discussion post. I agree that your best to look back at filters from other members. You'll learn fastest that way. Kevin_in_GA is no longer on SF but you'll find his work to be an encyclopedia of useful information. He also organized things so his filters are easy to follow.

Nice little filter for breakouts. Pop.....

zaq777,
Is this what you're looking for?
Just edit the number of lookback days.

Fetcher[
Average Volume(30) above 500000
close above 5

/*Set number of days for the initial lookback - say 3 days*/
set{a,count(close crossed above ma(10) 3 days ago,1)}
set{b,count(close crossed above Upper Bollinger Band(20,2) 3 days ago,1)}

/*Add both a and b together. If result above 0, the event triggered by one or both 3 days ago*/
set{MAorBBcross,a+b}
MAorBBcross above 0

/*Next you want to make sure that both events occurred at least once over the last 3 days*/
set{d,count(close crossed above ma(10),3)}
set{e,count(close crossed above Uper Upper Bollinger Band(20,2),3)}

/*Multiply d and e together to indicate that the even occurred for both over the last 3 days*/
set{MAandBBcross,d*e}
MAandBBcross above 0

/*Update Chart*/
draw ma(10)
draw Upper Bollinger Band(20,2) on plot price
draw MAorBBcross
draw MAandBBcross
