Filter Exchange ·  Percentage Hughes AD Oscillator with 8 Parameters

msg #90725
4/2/2010 8:50:31 PM

I was reading a review of a book by Colby, Robert W., The Encyclopedia of Technical Market Indicators, Second Edition, McGraw-Hill Publishing, 2003 where he states that on page 52 and 53 he gives the results of an extensive study of all the technical indicators with 100 dollars and found how effective they were. The indicators that I am used to such as rsi stochastic, macd etc gave like a -1.6 to .18 times advantage over buy and hold. The Percentage Hughes AD Oscillator with 8 Parameters was 187 thousand times as effective. I tried to find some information on how this oscillator works but got no where. Has anyone here ever heard of it and if so can it be coded in SF. Or maybe Colby just wants us to buy his book.. It was interesting that all the normal TA indicators we use did so poorly in his results.

Thanks,

Bill

I've noticed that when the + and - di's wrap tightly around each other moving in the same direction for 3 to 4 days, that once it unwinds suddenly it will tell which direction to buy into very clearly.

For example IPI chart during the dates 11/12/09 and 11/16/09 and once again at 10/8/09 to 10/13/09 the di's almost form a single rope. Once the di's break apart it gives a clear and strong signal for the next 3 to 7 days.


Of course when looking at enough charts this is something you just observe but are never able to catch. Is there a way that SF could search for this setup in time for you to take the right side of the trade.


Thanks ahead of time.

Bill

I tried this code:

DI(14) Difference equal 1 for last 2 days
stocks are optionable
close above 25
add column di(14) difference

but it's not really what I want. If you look at SLB on 9/2 - 9/3 for two days the difference was in the decimals. How would I write this in SF.

Thanks for the help,

Is it possible for SF to filter for a close 100 % above the 200 day moving average or more.

Thanks for your help,

Bill

You're right that this usually results in a huge pullback. But there are times in a big bull market that this might result in a long blue sky run.

Is there a way to code that after this 100 % above MA(200) is reached that a new high close is reached within the next 5 days. I'd like to do this with other conditions as well. That after a condition is reached that SF could find a new high close within 5 days of that condition.

Filter Exchange · Add New HI and New Low to Run Forest Run and TRO Slow Cooker

I've been trading the stocks from the Run Forest Run and TRO Slow Cooker on 30 min charts with some success. Since these filters find statistical high percentage movement it's been great. I've noticed that within a 10 day period when the 30 min hits a new hi that it's a great time to buy puts till the new low within the chart. And vice a versa with calls. My charting software on TOS gives me these new highs and new lows over the 10 day period. Over a few days quite a few pts can be generated. Is there a way to add code to these two searches to look for new lows and new highs... I know that SF still can't do intraday but perhaps this would work with daily as well. Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry I'm not sure I understand this filter. It gave over 1000 resulting stocks. I know I'm probably way behind work that was done before but could you explain briefly how to actual use the report that this filter generates and why it works so well. Hope I'm not being a nuisance .. I really am impressed by the quality of all the work done in this forum.

I've never used deMark... what are the rules to use it. Is this filter looking for bullish or bearish stocks.

Thanks,

Filter Exchange · Any way to filter for +DI and -DI creating sharp peaks and valleys indicating reversal

I have two question regarding the DI indicators.

I have had some success with DI crossovers especially when combined with crossing the MA(30). Is there a way to filter for a sharp increase and decrease of these two lines at the crossover? Each line would be look like a 45 degree slope.

I've noticed that when the +DI and -DI are at extremes... say above 30 and below 15 that a reversal can be anticipated if they both reverse sharply. In fact the two lines will have sharp pts .. this is especially true if they happen at the same time. Is there a way to filter for this. I was thinking for an uptrend reversal you could say +DI increases by 5 pts and -DI decreases by 5 pts. Not sure if SF allows you to do this or not.

Thanks

Thanks for looking at this.

These signals happen on all stocks let's look at AA for example.
I'll usually do a search for stocks that cross the MA(30) I'll then have to eye ball that the +DI(14) cross the -DI(14) with some nice separation. AA on 5/2 is a good example. By 5/6 you can tell that there is nice increases and decreases of the lines. I was wondering if SF could filter for these.

As far as reversal patterns look at two dates.5/19 - 5/20. Whenever there is a sharp reversal on the DI lines forming sharp peaks and valleys it seems to signal a reversal. The same happens with simultaneous peaks on 6/10 - 6/11. Is there any way to program SF to look for these?


Thanks again.
