I use this scan
(+DI13) crossed above (-DI13) within the last 3 days
I have also used "3 days ago"
Neither works
I get crosses up to 2 weeks ago.
What is wrong

Isn't X factor simply Aaron which is free on here. But then they add Piotroski score to their selection process.

four- thanks for replying. I want the weekly to be above -20. Have another scan I use for the Daily. The Weekly scan you wrote still shows both stocks below *20 on a weekly chart.

and chart is weekly
and price is between 2 and 18
and volume is above 300,000

Two of the top three are BAC and SIRI. In neither case is W%R above -20

Selecting which stocks to buy, which are more likely to post big gains, has been a challenge I have not solved. Going back and looking at the charts the day they alerted has not helped. Nothing has jumped out at me indicating one will be more successful than another. I guess news could be a big factor but who can predict that. I found a small correlation with stocks who had declined in price the prior day. As stated before I tend to select those stocks that have a very recent PSAR buy signal thinking it may be 5-10 days before a sell signal. I consider BigTrends exit strategy but look at 30 minute chart, Psar, DI, MACD, OBV and how far above the EMA 50 the price is. Remember all investment strategies are subject to the individual who chooses them. I seldom use options, but like 5-20 days movers in low price stocks. This suits me well. I back test almost every scan that is posted in these forums and very recently have come across several scans that back test as well or better than W%R. I am no expert, there are numerous posters on here that are much more knowledgeable. I just try to be helpful when I can. GOOD LUCK.

I have no clue whatsoever as to what your filter does. Not a criticism, just I don't know coding. Seems to back test well for 1-3 weeks. A month or so ago when the market was performing very well, my filter produced many returns of over 20%. That is what really peaked my interest. At that time I scanned prices between 3-20. I was getting scans with over 100 stocks. Studying the results I found such a large percentage of the over 20% came from the 7-13 price range. The exit strategy as set by BigTrends is when the price closes out of the green (below -20) exit if the close is lower the next day. Your scan has a high percentage of winners but not a large list of high percentage winners. Of course my scan is also not showing a high percentage of big winners, except in the two week back test where it does a little better. I will be happy with any improvements, as long as we all can learn and make more money.
