Ed, not sure I'm following your premise. When Guppy used the terms "traders" and "investors," I always assumed he meant traders are using the 3,5,,8,10,12, 15 lines on the chart to make their entries and exits. Investors instead use the 30,35,40,45,50 and 60 indicators to open and close positions.

Can you provide an example of what you're asking?

I didn't change anything on your filter and it is working just as you described. 3 days down then 3 days up. Maybe you're actually thinking of something else, like 3 red candles then 3 white candles (not the same as 3 days close decreasing then 3 days close increasing)?

close 10 days ago had been decreasing for 3 days
and close 7 days ago has been increasing for 3 days
and close is more than 20

A doji is simply when the open and close are very near each other. Where that open/close happens in relation to the legs of the candle has different significance.

Types of doji.

There are also Morning Star and Evening Stars.

This was one hell of a workup nibor and Cheese! As for the backtest results, it's clear I need to revisit the filter some day. The key to Fib is combining it with existing support levels or trend lines, both hard things to code on SF.

Still love the work on backtesting. Great job!

You're right, count limit is 252 (1 year in trading days). Change it to 253 or higher and it breaks.

set{var1,count(close > 1,100)}
set{var2,count(close > 1,101)}
set{var3,count(close > 1,252)}

add column var1
add column var2
add column var3

Reading the SF manual, as best as I can tell, "within the last" applies only to the following statements:

"crossed above/below"
"gained/lost more than"
"reached a new high/low"

How to fix your statement? Two ways:

CCI(20) crossed below -200 within the last 6 days
draw CCI(20) line at -200

set{var1,count(CCI(20) < -200,6)}
var1 > 0
draw CCI(20) line at -200

@arenas, I did not realize you were saying the "gap up" was the trigger to enter the position. I thought the Doji was the trigger. Here is the revised filter with the "gap up" as the trigger. You have to go back to 10/30/19 for the first hit, but you'll start seeing more results in mid-September and later when the markets were sideways.

/* After down trend of 5 days */
close 1 day ago < close 2 days ago for last 5 days
close 2 days ago < open 2 days ago for last 4 days

/* Stock drops into the Stochastic oversold area */
fast Stochastic(10) Fast %K is below 20 1 day ago

/* it is a doji candlestick */
set{body,close 1 day ago - open 1 day ago}
body between -0.05 and 0.05

/* The next days open is a gap up */
open > high 1 day ago
close > open

do not draw body

Note: count limit is 100.

close > 1

set{hi,count(high > ma(180),1)}
set{lo,count(low < ma(180),1)}
set{trigger,hi * lo}
trigger > 0

set{hits,count(trigger > 0,100)}

add column hits
draw ma(180)
sort column 5 descending
