I haven't seen any posts lately on the Darvis box theory.
Does anyone know the status of completed box theory filters?

If you are like me you will read it about 10 times because its just a good read. It seems the more you read the more you understand and learn. Finding box stocks for me now is simple and takes 5 minutes or less.

Hi Noah,
Could you post your picks and method of analysis. I'm very interested in this method. And if you have some good references or sources that could be accessed through the internet, I'd be very much interested in those as well. :)

I don't know what's taking the SF team so long to implement this. I gave them the formula weeks ago..

I am currently in AMB. I purchased the stock on 10/1/2003 at \$30.45 and placed my stop loss at \$29.00. My risk is less than 5%.

Darvas Box Formula:

LowL:=If(Low=LLV(Low,5),Low,If(Ref(Low,-1)=LLV(Low,5),Ref(Low,-1),
If(Ref(Low,-2)=LLV(Low,5),Ref(Low,-2),If(Ref(Low,-3)=LLV(Low,5),Ref(Low,-3), If(Ref(Low,-4)=LLV(Low,5),Ref(Low,-4),0)))));
NewH:=ValueWhen(1,High>Ref(HHV(High,5),-1),High);
box1:=HHV(High,3)<HHV(High,4);
TopBox:=box2;
BottomBox:=box3;
TopBox;
BottomBox;

Neither do I. But I figured they would know. How hard can it be? Avery? ;)
