You guys with your 98+ % W/L ratio give me an inferiority complex.

I hate to sound like a wet blanket, but I keep reading about "a big loss stop" and "safe stock". Apparently the writer(s) of those statements wasn't around in the fall of 1987.Or more recently, when the internet bubble burst. At those times, there's are very few "safe" stocks, and a big loss stop will wipe you out.

Accurately predicting filter performance based on past performance may be harder than predicting future performance of a single stock.

OK, that makes sense.

It seems to me that buying stocks with very high momentum for only five days would be risky, because they're already overbought and itching for a pullback. My thinking is that it might be less risky to buy stocks that have had good momentum for a longer period and have proven that they can sustain their momentum.

I'm not quite so negative on the markets. The averages are still in a general uptrend and above their ema(50). Quite possibly the averages will test that line and bounce off.

I agree that it is the 10% profit /50% loss criteria. I backtested a similar Bollinger band squeeze filter(for only 4 months though) and it gave a 95/5 win/loss ratio. HOWEVER, by looking at the trades, I could not verify such a good ratio. It may be a case of funnymatics.

You read about the few that did that, but not about the hundreds, maybe thousands that went broke.

You can't do well when you buy what everyone else is buying".
That statement is only partially true.It depends on your time frame and timing. Your "Oracle" has an infinite time frame and holds stocks for years. Most swing traders have a short time frame,so many buy when there are many buyers and the stock is rising.Of course, nobody wants to be the last buyer.

In stocks, as in everything else, everybody has different opinions. Opinions about CROX are no different.
These are "Opinions" about CROX on two free websites:

Short Term : 80% Buy
Intermediate : 100% Buy
Long Term : 100% Buy

StockTA :
Short Term : Bearish
Intermediate: Neutral
Long Term : Neutral

Another website with stock "opinions " is, but I had used up my free daily quota.
