Any help with a filter that would look at the (close minus low) and compare to (high minus low) as a percentage. What I want to look for is when the close is 80% or higher as compared to the days range and combine with some other filters.
Thanks,
David

Muddy,
Couple of questions as I continue to refine.

1) If you have a gain and it drops below you mental stop during the day, do you ever close out the position that day? Also, if you don't, you mentioned that you will watch the next morning and see if it goes red to sell. Does that mean anytime during the day so you could place a stop loss?
2) Do you have any techniques for getting out of low volume stocks without getting hammered too much on price or do you just use market orders and let it fall where it may?

Thanks

David

Does anyone know if you can use the phrase "within" to filter over a previous time period? For instance, if you want to identify stocks that have reached a new 52 week high within the past 10 days?
Thanks,

Wallman,
On entering a trade, some of the posts say you look for green at open and then place trades around 9:50. Do you ever take you positions before 9:50 or do you always wait. Also if a stock started in green but has moved out of the green by 9:50, do you hold off on that play?
Thanks

Wallman,
As you can probably tell, I am studying this morning. One more. Say you are looking at a few stocks. One is green at the open, you wait and watch till 9:50 to make your trade. By 9:50 two others are also in the green, all below the 3% above previous close level. Do you tend to play the one that opened in the green or look at all three equally as options at that point (how far above previous close, volume, price,etc). and choose the best based upon those?
Thanks,

Wallman,

Another one if you don't mind. On your post to DAB on 4/30 you said you had also bought KOPN. When I look at that chart, it appears to have a very short shadow on bottom compared to top. If you see this also and played anyway wondering what make the difference to make it a play.

Thanks again.

Wallman,
Appreciate, as I'm sure everyone does, your willingness to share your knowledge and wisdom with us. I have reviewed all the past posts and have a couple of questions.

Once your stock has moved up to the 75% RSI level, you stated that you will continue to let it run as long as it opens up (green);however, you also will sell if it turns around on you. Any details on what that would look like, such as price drops below the previous days close, 1% below previous days close, etc.

On buying first thing in the AM, you like to see it open green and then buy 15-20 minutes later (around 9:50) if the price isn't over 3% of previous days close. What if the stock opens green but by 9:50 is actually trading below the previous days close. Does this make it a no play or maybe an even better play?

Thanks a million

Wallman,
I had not looked at the May 1 posts until now and see that there is alot of info on this subject.
Looks like:

Enter as you have already described
Use a 5% trailing stop on a close basis (and sometimes look to see what happens the next morning first).
Money management, 1 to 4 stocks, whatever your comfortable with.

Seem about right?

Do you ever just take a big winner without hitting the 5%? Tighten the trailing stop tigher than 5%? Any othe tips? etc.

Thanks,

Wallman,
Was wondering what type of money management you use and also what type of "system" do you use to cut losses or take winnings?
Thanks,
