Mole and Berk currently post their ZERO SPX retracement indicator for free.
The tool seems to be well received (read the ES forum comments) and the site has a strong following.
You may want to try it out while it's still free. It seems easy to use and profitable.

For the technical gurus (like chetron, niko, yepher, tro, alf44, etc) would you be able to emulate or decipher the ZERO ?
Mole likes to use stochs and Berk likes to use MACD.
Another retracement tool by 2sweeties shown on the right hand side of ES is along the line of TRO's thinking with stats and probabilities.

Due diligence and Happy trading, everyone

Hi Chetron,

Firstly, thank you for your contribution and generous gift of time to this forum.

I, too, am WONDERING: Is there an easier way to identify a potential reversal?
For example, can't we just use the StockFetcher's coding example of a bearish shooting star at the end of rising prices?

/* Code provided by StockFetcher */
set{lshadowsize, body_bottom - low}
set{tshadowsize, high - body_top}
set{tshadowsize2, tshadowsize * 2}
set{body_size, body_top - body_bottom}
show stocks where lshadowsize is less than 0.001
and tshadowsize2 > body_size
and close increasing for the last 3 days
and body_bottom > close 1 day ago
close above 5

Like 13th_floor, I am also glad to see Yepher's post.

I am thankful to many people here, like alf44, niko, chip, TRO, muddy wallman, noah edwin beach, etc. etc.

But Yepher is special in many ways. When I first joined SF, the SF documentation was not very good, so many of us were very thankful to Yepher and his great documentation, which includes undocumented features. Some people even suggested that SF give Yepher free subscription. Today, the SF documentation has improved but I still visit Yepher's site because it still has a lot of good added value, which I believe niko mentioned at one point.

So, I just want to say: Thank you, Yepher, for your thoughtful and user friendly material. It set me on the right track.

Luc1grunt and Marine2,

Thank you very much for your thoughts. I am still learning.

For what it's worth, my weekend reading shows the following ideas from my list of reliable blogs:

(1) The market makers and institutional traders will continue to inflict maximum pain to small investors (bulls and bears alike) in the coming week

(2) Technical analysis is becoming too popular so it is not as useful as a single tool in this tricky market

(3) Here is a free tool that seems to get a lot praise right now (I don't quite know how to use it yet)

Good luck everyone.

Slope of Hope is an active and fairly reliable blog by Tim Knight, founder of ProphetCharts. Tim has been making profits with his bearish views. Today (Nov 15, 2008), he is suggesting stocks are now cheap. He bought LVS on Nov 13.

One of his readers "thefunneloflove" suggested the following:

My simple logic: There are A LOT of stocks that are great lottery tickets. For example GM...a year ago 1000 shares was 30,000+, now 3,000!! I'll buy 1000 shares and if they go bust big deal....but if they only turn it around 25% then the gain is HUGE. There are 100's of stocks in this category. I'm building what I call a Lotto portfolio of troubled companies that are unbelievably panic cheap, with about 25% of my portfolio. Some undoubtedly will fail, others will not. A good long term bet in my book.

Sounds a bit like M4M's FRE FNM buy advice a while ago.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Although I didn't quite understand all the wave counting that they often talked about, I've found the info in this blog (by Berk and Mole) to be quite interesting:

You may want to read the latest post of Oct 10, 2008.

From time to time, some of the info in the blog and the comments section seemed "far out". For example, before this past week, one reader reported that the astral cycle approach predicted a crash. Many people derided that view but Berk and Mole defended that reader. They said that the astral thingy does work although very few people believe in it or understand it.

Do your own due diligence, be safe and good luck.

My guess and reply:

I am guessing that you are looking for a filter that will give you a list of stocks that may be about to TOP, i.e. their prices are about to come down (may be), so that you can buy PUTS and OPTIONS.

If my guess is correct, then check out a financial blog such as the following by Tim Knight who is the founder of Prophet.Net:

It is an active blog where many participants regularly share opinions, ideas and rationale about stocks that may be coming down. There are also helpful charts and videos if you have difficulties with the English language.

You can then check out what people have to say and then choose whether to believe them or not.

This eliminates the pain of writing filters.

Good luck, kamoos.
