"watching GVGC at a buck from pre market vol scan.
from my "beat down" scan with big vol selling increase yesterday."

Up 111% in 4 days.
I'm sure the veteran traders here know this but newer traders,this volume stuff works.
Premarket and intraday.

I asked my friend to draw CCUR and they came up with your 1.48 also.

On CCUR I get a top trend of 1.67 and bottom trend of 1.41 so the MP would be 1.54
Since it's been in a decline I take 1.54 x's .93 which gives a price of 1.4322

You said: "I think especially because drawing trendlines is quite subjective matter. How long period you take to draw them?"

I agree,trendlines are a subjective matter but as long as you trade below/above your line with the existing trend you should be ok if you are in the ballpark with a reasonable MP.

I use a 6 month chart to draw trendlines.I use only candle BODY tops and bottoms,no tails and try to get as many candles involved when drawing trends.
However you do it the key is to be consistent on every chart you draw.

First off I really like your method/s of choosing which stocks to radar with the Fast%K filter.
They are well thought out and I follow much the same routine in choosing swing and longer term holds.
In answer to your question of a possible way to improve entries,this is from my blog:

Tuesday, December 5, 2006

I get a lot of questions regarding this so i'll try to explain how i do entries and exits.
For entry points on the UBB zone pullbacks the night before i draw top and bottom trendlines and determine the MidPoint,this is my entry point on A GREEN HOLD,that is the stock must be up at the time of entry,some stocks prices are below this MP and i wait for it to cross it.Others the price is already above this MP and i simply wait for the stock to go GREEN.
For entry points on the fast%k filter i draw the same top and bottom trendlines and determine the MP
BUT there's a difference in my determining the ENTRY point on these DOWNTRENDING stocks as opposed to the even or uptrending UBB pullback charts.After i get the MP from the trendlines on these i look to see if the stock is in a gradual decline as opposed to a steep 1 or 2 day drop.If its a gradual drop i take .93 x's the MP and that is my entry point on GREEN hold.So say the MP is $1 then the entry would be at .93 on GREEN. If the stock is sitting at say .90 then it will have to move only .03 instead of .10,thus giving me the advantage of getting some confirmation yet not giving away that .07 move (my profit now) from .93 to the actual $1 MP.
With stocks that have a steep 1 and/or 2 day drop from the fast%k filter i times the MP by .85

As for exits i usually apply a 3-4% MENTAL stop with a trailing stop of about the same % if the stock goes up. Please remember NO filter will trade for you,a good one only gives you good watches,the trading is up to you to find the best way for you

This method many times avoids the sideways trades such as THC,as it gives a running start to its bounce off the low FastK number,giving conformation of a real move upwards,yet not giving away too much lost profit after its initial bounce.

For THC on 1/29 I would have been looking for a GREEN hold entry at 7.30,since it only reached 7.19 I would not have entered.
If i was still stalking THC I would draw a new trendline every day it varied from a few % from its previous close.
Now for Monday I would be looking for 7.25 on THC if I still was interested in it.

Hope this helps,

Yeah, and the neat thing is how the volume in premarket gave the indication of the action for CTTD on Tuesday.
From the chat yesterday:

"Here are the picks Muddy put up before I started logging the chat today."



Muddy said CTTD or one of these should do 100%, either UP or DOWN. Luckily for us in chat, he was pretty close on the UP side! He is talking about CTTD below at the beginning of the log.

(Jan 30-09:19) Muddy: this could be interesting
(Jan 30-09:20) Muddy: 2.5 mil shrs now
Here are the picks Muddy put up before I started logging the chat today.

Note that that was posted BEFORE the open.
CTTD opened at 1.02 and closed at it's hod at 1.65 on 12.2 mil shares up from 729,000 the day before!
The second watch from that list,EVCC another good gainer for the day,also had very good premarket volume.

Alot of beating this game comes from VOLUME folks.


I will be watching premarket/opening volume again on these.
Please understand this method/stocks is not for newer folks that don't understand you must watch these stocks closely all day if you enter one.
Trail them up with your stop and let them run when they are at or near their hod's
