I've never seen a way to remove a column either, only add ones.

I was searching for something else when I found this online. I need to spend more time checking out his web site but I liked the page I landed on. It's a very simple MA crossover strategy with clear entry and exit points - mostly. As he says toward the bottom of the page, under the chart, "Whipsaws are not entirely eliminated." (A whipsaw being one trigger MA crossing over or under another trigger MA almost daily.) I only saw that in a couple of charts these filters brought up but it's easy enough to avoid by just looking at the price action on the chart.

I've included a link to the site where I found this and the relevant signals as a comment in the filters. I try to do that with any filter that I don't create myself. It helps to be able to go back and see the original if I mess it up, and I like to give credit to the original creators, even if I've modified their work.

First one is for going long.

You could use any three MA's that you want. His example uses 5, 21, and 63. I chose 5, 15, and 45 because I think you need a short enough one for the fast one and the other two are three times the previous one to give some spread. I'm going to play around with other lengths and I'd suggest that you do too if you want to use these filters. Find ones that work best for your investing or trading style. I think I'm going to go with four times the previous one so it'll be 5, 20, and 60. I'm thinking that a wider range between them might be better. I guess I'll find out.

As always, if you want to try these feel free to change any parameters or add any indicators you like to make it work for you.

ETA: I know the average trading week is 5 days, and the average trading month is 21 days, but I just found out that in 2020 the average length for a trading quarter is 63 days, which explains his MA length choices.

@Cheese

You're welcome! I know the "classic" MAs are 50, 100, and 200, but I always like to know why people pick different ones. For this system using week, month, and quarter makes a lot of sense to me. I just wanted to share why he's using those since I didn't know at first.

One thing I would suggest when using a filter that gives buy and sell signals is to look at a year long chart to see when the signals happened and what the prices were. Look at how far apart they are. See what the price difference is between the buy and the sell signals. Would you have made money or lost money? If the previous signals show that I would have made money then I'm more likely to trust them when they show up again.

Yes, that would be it, from this old, old post:

You may not be finding anything because the guys name is Marlyn, not Marilyn. But the link I gave above should be enough. I've forgotten all my old HTML and I'm not sure if it works here or not, so just copy and paste that link into your browser.

ETA: I just saw that you have those lines in there so I misunderstood the question. I think you need the same parameters on the column line as you have on the first line for it to show as a column.

I don't use that indicator myself, but I took the code from the indicator explanation page and added a column to it. Check this page for more help: https://stockfetcher.com/forums/Indicators/Day-Position/85

Close is above Day Position(0.05,1)

I'm just curious what anyone here thinks about this stock. I just bought in at $3.72 because it's on my 10% Weekly Crock Pot filter and I like what I'm seeing on the chart, along with the PVT and the ADX. Zack's has it as a Strong Buy with an earnings ESP of 23.08%.

It's funny because of course it dropped after I bought in and posted about it this morning. I'm down a little over 3% on it now, but I'm going to hang on to this one for a few days. I find it interesting that the last three down days, including this one, were all basically hammer candlesticks, and that it rallied somewhat the next day. We all know there's no guarantees but I want to see what it does tomorrow.

Okay, there is one guarantee when trading stocks. Prices will either go up, down, sideways, or not change at all. It's just not a helpful guarantee.

General Discussion · Amusing Tickers

Question: what are some stock tickers that you've been amused by?

I'm probably too easily amused, but for some reason one day I was wondering if there was a ticker, TACO, because I thought that would be funny. There is. It's for Del Taco Restaurants. There's also a ticker, KIRK, for Kirkland's Inc, but no ticker KAHN! (Obligatory Star Trek reference.)

So I thought I'd ask. What tickers do you find amusing and why?
