General Discussion · "Wait for Green" Support and Resistance
msg #50850
4/4/2007 12:11:49 AM

what I've been doing for support and resistence is to look back in time on the stock - I routinely watch the 60 minute or 5 minute, but review a 5 day, 6 week, and 6 month view where support and resistences become extremely evident(scott trade charts) today (4-3) the nasdaq pre-market movers gapped up to 6 month resistence levels and stayed there all day (very hard to catch these gap ups) - one of my rules is not to buy into a stock that has not broken through this traffic - others stocks I will buy have none of this traffic especially ones that have shown the bollinger band squeeze, volume spike, and break-out, these ones wait for green works very well on and they are rather easy to identifiy - but timming of buying is the key, all can change in 20 minutes - thus delayed quotes can be a hinder. thats my 2 cents :)

Hi TRO and Muddy,

I’ve been sitting in on Muddy’s chat room for the past week and have watched what this thread is about in action – amazing. But how does one find the stocks with abnormal moves based on real time data feeds? The smallcapcenter tech search seems to be based on delayed data, not real time data quotes. I can use SF to finds stocks that behaved this way yesterday and then watch the stocks the next day using a real time stock feed such as with etrade and yahoo. But it would seem there must be a system available to do the searching for abnormal moves based on real time feeds – how can one do this?
Thanks for your help and insights....

TRO, thanks for the timing answer...I'll watch it to day...

as for other users the abnormal query location question

on small try this....

click on the tools menu
then technical search
then in the price indicator queries area you can pick the Abnormal Activity dropdown
And in the volume indicator queries area you can pick the Abnormal Volume dropdown

I am under the assumption that these are what has been talked about in this thread....

Also, I signed up for the free stockscores login, and it worked at home last night, but here at work security/firewalls/etc... get in the way of accessing this site for some reason. But it seemed to me that the stockscores pages looked identical to the smallcapcenter pages. Made me think these two sites were related in some way.

I see/read this as a way to analysis stocks via a candle stick approach

to start, stockfetcher (sf) has some predefined variables such as low, high, close, and open and by default sf assigns the variables the corresponding values of low, high, close, and open

the "set" command is how you can define your own variables and assign them a value

The first "set" command creates the variable called "body_bottom" and assigns the value which is the minimum value of either the stocks open or the stocks closevalue

you can read this first set command line like this...

set body_bottom equal to the minimum of either the open or close value

with this understood, know think about a candle stick, it has a body, a top, a tail, etc...

this filter makes use of 6 user defined variables


you can figure out what these represent by drawing a candle stick and applying the associated math to your diagram

now comes the part of the filter that tells sf what to display in the filter results. It starts with

show stocks where the tail size is less than the value of 0.0001

meaning to me show stocks that have very small candle stick tails

a small body size - meaning the close and open were close in value
also the close has been decreasing for 3 days or meaning 3 days down
and the body_top was less than the close 1 day ago

I hope this helps...

* means times or multiply

thus body_size2 is equal to body_size * 2 or twice the size of body_size

General Discussion · how to judge morning volume
msg #48904
1/3/2007 1:03:06 PM

I have read again and again to watch volume (and price) around 10am is to see if the stock is performing as expected, but how does one judge volume is up? It's obvious it volume is above the average at that time, but what if it's a fraction (say less than 33%) of average volume? Are there any guidelines on this concept say if volume is > 25% aver vol then it's up?
