Four, I did not backtest this, all I did was click the links for 2 days ago and 1 month ago and the results were all pretty good declines. That is what led me to believe it was meant to be a "short" filter. Since those results were so good on the negative side, I thought perhaps you could script an "up" filter. Going back and clicking different start dates I got some positive returns so perhaps it was just the date I started. At the time all I checked was the 2 days ago and 1 month ago and both revealed no up stocks, all were declines of such proportion they would have been profitable investments on the short side. As far as entries, either long or short, pretty much all I use is Williams%R(30) from Big Trends. I use MACD, Directional Index with ADX and ROC for confirmations. They generally signal entries before W%R, but they are not quite as reliable. Much the same for exits, W%R lags but often keeps you in the trend after a retest.

Four - This has had great results for downside moves. Can you reverse it for upside moves?? Of course as of today I want to be on the Put side, but when Calls are appropriate it will be interesting to see if this can work as well.

Is it possible to build a scan for a MACD histogram double bottom?

Karen thanks. Count me in the school that believes it doesn't matter how much revenue the government raises, ALL politicians are going to spend more than you raise. Raise 1T, they will spend 1.5T.

push - there are much better traders on here than me and hopefully some of them will respond. But my favorite is the Directional Movement Index. The red and green DI lines identify the trend for me, and the black ADX line indicates the strength of the trend. You can read all about it in the Indicators and Measures link. I use it in conjunction with MACD to help identify entry points and watch it for signs of weakness. It has worked the best for me. But as I say there are MUCH more knowledgeable traders on here than me. They have helped me in the past so I just wanted to help you if I could.

ADX says the down trend is gaining in strength. Of course that can always change, but that's what I want to see first.

It has turned up in the last couple of days and does appear it could cross -DI. That cross in late Nov on the weekly chart would have really paid off. I prefer the weekly chart crosses as more reliable. On the weekly chart +DI is weakening and could cross below the -DI soon. I don,t trade just DI crosses, they are not as reliable without the MACD/ADX setup, so I would have missed the late Nov cross. However when MACD looked as strong as it did at the time, I would have been tempted.

Karennma, see it. good cross. Take a look at this pattern - MACD on top, ADX underneath. MACD black line comes down near the bottom. ADX black line goes up to near the top. The two lines appear very close to touching. Now watch for the next +DI cross above the -DI. Appears to be a highly accurate buy signal. See it on DG back on 28 Dec. Get +DI cross on 15 Jan for a nice short run. Works beter on a weekly chart because one gets longer runs. Look at HPQ, ELN, MRVL, JCP, GLW on a weekly chart to see this pattern develop. Sometimes the +DI cross is a little late but I have not found an earlier signal that was as reliable. Of course I would love to program a scan to watch for this signal but that is way too complicated for me. This is my BUY ON WEAKNESS signal. My BUY ON STRENGTH signal is a cross above -20 on Williams&R(30).
