What Todd mentioned about RCOM happened to me too, with the same stock on the same day. In fact I think Todd took the shares I wanted. It's his fault I am now holding a bizarre 838 shares of RCOM! The observation about volume I believe is right on. I noticed when watching an open T&S window that trading was thin. I think it was just me and Todd out there that day. :) --BJ

As a sidebar to this thread, on a rapidly falling stock, seems that using market or limit to sell both have their problems. Any guidelines from long-time traders?

Now it's working fine on the flash charts but not on the historical. -- BJ

HG Trading Buddy, I have re-studied your post and filter, and I see your point about the benefit of not waiting until the RSI goes up again. Thank you for your help. And I'm sorry that I missed that it was you and not HG I was addressing. --BJ

Wow, D, you put some real work into that one. I need to chew on it for a while. You did manage to get the RSI up last day. What would be helpful is if SF had a way to refer to the "most recent peak" [or trough]. That way, one wouldn't have to limit oneself to specifying a particular number of days. It would include all matches for instance "where the RSI(14) 0 days ago is above last RSI(14) peak." Maybe Tomb could make it happen. --BJ

Appreciate your response HG, but the premise is correct. For a bottom failure swing the 2nd trough of the RSI line is higher than the previous RSI trough but the PRICE at the 2nd trough goes DOWN. So a divergence is created where the RSI trendline slopes up while the price trendline slopes down. Wilder considers the divergence the single most powerful indicator for his RSI.
I tried again this morning, and found some dynamite results with the filter below, but I am still not getting the syntax to yield a final-stage rising RSI (it should reach or exceed its most recent peak). What I tried this morning is: Show stocks where the price is at a new 10 day low and the RSI(14) 1 day ago had been decreasing for the last 3 days and the RSI(14) 2 days ago was above the previous RSI(14) 10 day low and the RSI(14) is above the previous RSI(14) high." -- Again, anyone able to crack this nut? --BJ

I am trying to create a filter for an RSI bottom failure swing, but am not having success. A bottom failure is when the price makes a new low and the RSI is in a downtrend (under 30) but fails to set a new low, and then the RSI proceeds to exceed a previous peak.

I've tried "show stocks where the price is at a new 5 day low and the RSI(14) 2 days ago had been decreasing for the last 1 day and the RSI(14) 1 day ago was above the RSI(14) 5 day low and the RSI(14) is above the last RSI(14) 5 day high" but it doesn't give me the RSI increasing on the last day. Has anyone created such a filter, or can anyone with more experience than I have figure this out? Thanks. --BJ

Yes, it is an awesome group, with awesome members, working with an awesome filter. Come join us. Be sure to get caught up first by reading the documents, especially the Muddy Method document, posted under the Files section. Otherwise if you just dive in you will be swimming in questions. Glad to have you. -- BJ


General Discussion · Clarification on Relative Strength

If I add "...and relative strength(^IXIC,45) is above 1.25" to a filter, what precisely is it giving me? Will this give me the stocks that in the most recent single day showed relative strength in comparison to the last 45 days of the Nasdaq? Or the stocks that showed relative strength over the past 45 day period, or exactly 45 days ago or what? What I really want is to add a filter phrase to get the stocks that showed relative strength against an index (e.g., Nasdaq Composite) for the most recent single day. Is the designation (^IXIC,1) legal? Also, where can I find a list of index symbols that SF recognizes? If there isn't a list, can you at least provide the main ones? Thanks! -- BJ
