For beginners who don't do shorts, one could wait several days and some of your short one-day wonders
may become scalps on the long side, e.g. SAVA, CRTX

Village Elder,

Best of luck with AGTC, it looks like a very promising short.

If I could suggest one tip: perhaps utilize a parameter limiting stocks with an extremely low market cap or shares outstanding. For example, you could dodge a lot of short squeezes by eliminating candidates that have a shares outstanding of under 3 or 4 million.

@KSK8 - good suggestion. This can be done in SF by simply adding "market cap is above 5". Having added this in a quick test it does not change any of the recent calls, but I will incorporate it into the filter going forward.

My trades in this are purely theoretical right now, and are designed to pressure test the filter strategy. I am assuming one can get sufficient shares to short and get them at the open price - often that is not the case and you either can't get in the trade or you take a hit on the bid/ask spread. Ignoring these complications for now to see how well the concept works before committing real money to it.

I respect folks here who share freely and transparently, and this is my effort at doing the same.

Good luck in your AGTC trade.

This will help. Short on a red candle through upper bb.

close above 3
close above close 1 day ago
close * volume above 1000000
set{mass5, average volume(5) / average volume(50)}
set{new_momentum, ROC(5,1) * mass5}
draw roc(5,1) line at 50
add column new_momentum
add column roc(5,1)
sort on column 5 descending
roc(5,1) above 50
chart-time is 21 days
Draw bollinger band(20)

Shouldn’t it be close is below close one day ago, if looking for a red candle thru upper bb?

Just made it to manually observe, maybe you want to get in as it's approaching the line.

Interesting filter and wonderful results recently. I'm not big on shorting shares directly. I prefer to sell call credit spreads on equities I'd like to short. Defined risk/reward and having Theta decay on my side helps. But these seem to happen quickly so playing it with a long term call credit spread isn't ideal.
Anyway pretty impressive filter so far. I'll be following.
