I recently read an intersting article in SFO Magazine about the effect of the devaluation of the dollar that blew my mind and thought I would try to paraphrase and pass along the gist of it to those of you whom might be interested...

1. The Weak Dollar Matters

"...While most may have heard or read about this, many don't realize we are fighting the economic conflict of our lifetime...Americans are blinded by the illusion of stock market wealth and purchasing power..."

2. The Illusion of Stock Market Wealth

When the weak dollar's Global Purchasing Power Parity (GPPP) is factored into recent Market activity, things get ugly...

In 2000, Dow top @ 11,700 X 1.24 (Dollar trade-weighted index at the time) = 14,508 GPPP "points"...

In 2007, Dow top @ 14,180 X .78 (Dollar trade-weighted index at the time) = 11,060 GPPP "points"...

Bottom line...a net loss of 3,448 GPPP "points" meaning the Dow has declined by 24% since 2000! When it comes to Real Money, the supposed 2003-2007 "Bull" Market is in reality a continuation of the 2001 Bear Market in disguise!

The NASDAQ, which has a long way to go to see 5000+ again, has declined by 66% in Real Money terms since 2000...

In terms of commodities, compared to 2000, the ailing dollar now buys...

- 35% fewer gallons of milk
- 40% fewer bushels of corn or wheat
- 65% fewer ounces of silver
- 70% fewer barrels of oil
- 80% fewer pounds of copper

and so on...This same formula can be applied to any number of other purchases, such as housing, insurance, education, healthcare, etc. yielding equally sobering results...

Couple this with the housing troubles and $100 dollar oil and things are looking pretty grim. Unfortunately, further easing by the Fed only makes things worse!

On that note, I find it ironic that one of the Fed's supposed priorities is to curtail any potential signs of Inflation. With their steadfast dismantling of the Strong Dollar Policy to appease the Street and give cheap money to "kids in the candy store", Inflation is now the least of our worries, IMO...

Despite the Financial Media "Talking Heads" parroting the worn out line about a weak dollar being good for exports, the fact is we are all about consuming and spending where the rest of the world for the most part is producing and saving. As a result, the purported export effect will have little impact, IMO...

3. What's an individual to do?

+ Start saving more
+ Buy gold, gold futures and/or a gold ETF when prices dip/retrace to opportunistic levels
+ Stop using your home as an ATM

Sounds interesting...

I've always believed teamwork gets you much further down the road :) That said, I've currently got a subscription to VectorVest I could offer towards helping to potentially further refine "THE LIST" if it helps...

As for filters, I've been working for some time on a couple that show some promise, but I'd prefer to see solid real-world results before offering them for anything beyond personal consumption. On that note, you alluded to a couple you were currently using, could these possibly be two of them?



Just curious :)

No offense intended, Danglin, as I said just askin'...Thanks for sharing the filters you were referring to :)

As for potentially collaborating, sounds good to me, not to sound like a broken record. Let me know how you'd like to proceed. In the meantime, I'll look at the filters you posted and look a little deeper into the technicals of the more promising candidates...

FWIW...I wholeheartedly agree with Guru_Trader...I've been with TOS (ThinkOrSwim) for more than 2 years now after Scottrade, Ameritrade and E-Trade and haven't looked back :) Their platform is worth a demo...

Kevin_in _GA,

First of all, thank you for your generous contributions of both time and content to this community. It is certainly appreciated.

I've been trying to follow this latest system you've posted and find myself a little confused. You wrote,

12/29/2012 6:12:22 PM

...I am using the specific settings chosen by the WFA for December (two 4% pullbacks, ADX(5) above 55, with exit at Williams %R(2) above -45)...

So I'm running the following:

set{trigger, close 1 day ago * 0.96}
set{target, close*0.96}
set{sharestobuy, 20000 / target}

close above 5
close is below day position(0.2,1)
average volume(21) above 250000
adx(5) above 55
low below trigger

add column trigger
add column target {limit entry}
add column sharestobuy {shares to buy}

This filter has yielded the following results since 1/15/13:


Is this correct or should I be running the original filter posted on 11/27/2012 10:55:50 PM?

Thanks in advance for any assistance...

Just a thought...Try using set{} statements to specify those custom indicator elements...

For example:

set { wRSI2, weekly RSI(2) }

draw wRSI2


StockFetcher 2.0 Beta · Default/Custom Filter conflict?

First of all, kudos and thanks to the SF team for SF2 :) Though there may be a few kinks to work out, I remain entirely enthusiastic regarding the promise and potential I've seen so far. Keep up the great work...

On the subject of "kinks", I've run into an issue where I select and run a custom filter, but SF2 retains the default filter ticker/price/volume info, yet the associated indicators (RSI, SS) show the plotted data for the ticker selected from the custom filter. Follow link below for screenshot...

P.S. It sure would be nice to be able to post the image directly, as SF is currently doing, instead of having to provide external links. Any chance of this being a possibility in the near future?
