Your RFR filter is fantastic. Probability based on past performance certainly provides an edge.

I'm just trying to hone a few more tools (even the non-statistical ones!)

Given that stocks tend to fall three times faster than they climb I short-sell based exclusively on TRO's statistical scans, though I've been piddling around lately with Muddy's Short's Only blog and his Green on the Screen chat room (see Combining that background with an Interactive Brokers account which:

(1) Posts stocks in their "Shortable Stocks" section which they'll allow you to short (thanks to "13th Floor" for the recommendation)

(2) Along with current availability levels of shortable stocks

(3) Plus no price limits on which stocks you can short (e.g., many brokers won't let you short stocks below $5)

Resulting in the perfect platform for seamlessly riding the Market up or down!

Finally, I use the free "Short Quote" service found at in order to make sure that the "Short Percent of Float" isn't too high on any stock that I'm considering for shorting.
