Today the VIX went out at 25.12. The nov.21 calls went out at an ask of 2.95. That makes no sense to me. Shouldn't it have been 4.12 intrinsic value plus time? At least 5.50 or more. Didn't buy any because it didn't look right. Anyone know why that would be?

I've been looking at a filter, "Show stocks where close reached a 52 week high in the last 10 days and volume is above 5,000,000 and close is below .01". A week ago it picked up AVTI. If I go back and run that filter on April 10 and 11, it doesn't show up in the results and it should. Anyone have any ideas as to why. I've found a number of examples when that has happened and it bugs me. Thank

Does anyone know if a stock has to be traded for 30 days before they show up on a filter? Looking at new highs and it looks to me like a stock that's been trading for a week, and making new highs, doesn't show up until a certain amount of time has passed.

Does anybody know of any brokerage houses that allow you to short stocks under 5.00. The mainstream houses(TD, Scott, Schwab, etc) won't allow it. Some of the botique houses should(people obviously can) and someone here might know of one. Thanks, in case anyone can help out.

Shouldn't the ema(13) be the same on whatever chart you look at? SF has the ema(13) on NOK for Fridays close at about 25.10. Stock charts gives a numerical value for the ema(13) close at 24.70. Wonder why the difference.

Since this is for general discussion I thought I'd generally discuss. I've been subscribed to S.F. for a little over a year and am interested in opinions on something I did back before the meltdown in '01. It was really simple, if I had had S.F. the filter would have been "Show stocks where close gained 100% in the last month and average volume(30) is above 100000 and close between 1 and 5". I got tons of stocks back then that did that and all I had to do was follow them until they quit going up and started to retreat, I'd wait until they retreated to 66% of whatever that high might have been and then buy. Sometimes the rebound was the same day but generally I kept for 1 or 2 weeks and sold. If I was in it for a month I would sell, figuring I had made a mistake. I had 5,000 when I started doing that, 10 months latter I had 65,000. Biggest mistake was buyiny 2,000 shares of something for 1.375 and selling 2 weeks latter for 2.75, 10 weeks latter, right before the crash it hit 48.00 a share. I had a 10 week run where I made money 30 out of 31 trades. I sure wish it had lasted for another year or two but it didn't and it hasn't worked since but now I'm starting to re-look at that approach. The filter now reads "Show stocks where close is 75% above close 1 month ago and average volume(30) is above 100000 and ema(13) is above 0". I use ema(13) now because it generaly appears to be about the same as 66% of the high. With S.F. you can run that filter and then back it up week by week or day by day for as far back as you want to go until you find one that has dropped below the ema(13).The only problem I have with it now is it only works about half the time. I've looked at all kinds of other indicators to add to that basic filter to increase the winning percentage but as yet haven't found any.If anyone has any ideas as to what indicator or indicators that could be added I would appreciate their input. That is if there is anything that could be added to that filter that would improve it. Don't really know if that is possible.

Thanks Jim, but that didn't get me what I was shooting for. I'm better at plain english than I am at coding but it looks like what you gave me should have worked, it just didn't. If you're so inclined, take a look at the 6 month chart of SPEX, it might give you a better idea of what I'm trying for. It was pretty much trading in a range for 3 or 4 months and suddenly shot up(thats the trading above the 3 month high I was referring to) and it reached almost 6 befor pulling back. I use the 10 day EMA as a buy point and once it traded below that I bought 5,000 @2.95 yesterday and sold them earlier in the day at 4.50 so that worked out pretty good. I'm just trying to figure out a filter that would pick out these sudden risers, wait for them to drop back to the 10 day EMA, and then buy.If it's too much bother don't even mess with it, I've got another filter I can use but it just takes a little more looking-at time. Again,thanks. sulldt

I've been having trouble getting any results for the following filter: " Show stocks where close 2 days ago was below 3 month high 2 days ago and close was above 3 month high 2 days ago". It should give some results but it never does. Am I not phrasing it correctly or am I missing something else?
