Try this filter, "show stocks where close 15 days ago was 80% above close 45 days ago and close was 40% below close 15 days ago and average volume(30) is above 200000". When the results come up hit the 3 months ago button, then hit the performance button and look at the results for one week.Then click on the "next week" tab and keep advancing it week by week and see what you get.

This isn't a challenge, just trying to see if you have any idea on how,or if, this filter is doable.Take a 50 dollar stock, run it up to 70 over a period of 2 months,have it drop back to 60 in a couple of weeks, then move back up to 70.My thinking is that a stock that has been in a 2 month uptrend pulls back a little and if it can take out the previous high on the next upturn it's a bullish signal. In other words, if it can take out that 70 dollar resistance level you buy calls. If it fails to take it out and rolls over you buy puts. Logical thinking? I've tried using verbal commands on the filter but it only displays 2 of my three commands and the third doesn't show up. What I tried was "Show stocks where close is 10% above 2 week low(the bounce back) and close within 1% of 4 week high and close 4 weeks ago was 20% above close 8 weeks ago.What do you think? Valid hypothesis

I agree with "da net" that posted the previos reply. I've been using stock fetcher for about 5 nonths now and have looked at a great many filters posted by people and have yet to find one that works on a regular basis, which is what you and I are looking for. Don't know if there is one. Paper trade whatever you come up with for a couple of months to see how you would have done but don't use real money until you know you have something that works.

I've been watching the 90 day decreasing slope stocks on the home page and it appears to me if you wait until the stock closes below the bottom trend line and has its first up day you could either buy the stock outright or buy calls and get good results. If you put in a GTC sell order at 25% below your purchase price to cut your losses if your wrong and played the selling by ear it looks like you would be up 2 out of 3 or 3 out of 4 times.Option wise, losing 25% 1 time out of 3 and making 50%+ the other 2 times would be possible. Anyone tried a stradegy that resembles this or have any coments on the theory. Interested in peoples opinion on if this would work.

TheRumpledOne- Had trouble posting my reply earlier.Posted it before I had even gotten your complete reply.Not trying to test you but I'm pretty sure you know your stuff.Looking at using my orginal filter but adding the "ema(26) decreasing for 5 days" to it.More put buying than shorting actually, using a 30% stop loss because I can't predict when that decreasing ema(26) is going to change direction.

Thanks TheRumpledOne- I think I can get what I wanted to find out by adding "and ema(26) has been decreasing for 5 days" to that filter.That's what I was shooting for to start with. If you have the time you might look at the 6 month charts for RIMM and OSTK and see if you think that filter has promise.I value your opinion. Thanks again.

I've got a filter that has potential for finding short stocks but it needs a little work. It goes " Show stocks where close crossed above ema(26)from below in the past 5 days and 1 day close is below ema(26) and av (30) is above 200000 and close is between 20 and 200". That gives too many results, stocks that are trading below and above the ema(26) line frequently.What I'd like to add is "show stocks that have traded below ema(26) for 10 days leading up to the crossover " but I don't know how to word it.Any body have any ideas on how to do that? I would like to cut my search results down to 20 to 30 stocks instead of 250-300.
