Ok, 5 years, $30,000 in the hole, nothing has "gone my way" ever.
So, after a few paid websites, one uses the MA(8) as an indicator for long and shorts. I have come up with this for shorts.

show stocks where close crossed below EMA (8) one day ago and
full stochastics %K(14,3) cross below %D (3) one day ago and
close is between 10 and 60 dollars and
volume is greater than 50000

I am looking for something *simple* and not elaborate and it's based on a weekly chart, not daily.
so far, what I have come up with has worked well, but the market, as we all know, is a mess.

Trust me, I thoroughly understand your viewpoint as well. I don't have an answer for your questions and thoughts, I wish I did... it would have saved me some drastic losses as well.

Point being is....

Set your own exit strategy. If you are happy with a 3% gain, then exit. If you are happy with a 10% gain, then exit. I have piled on losses over the year myself so I understand from where you are coming. But I do believe that an exit strategy is as unique as one's individual trading style. Once I get a certain percentage, whether it's within two days, like LOCM did this week, or whether it's within a few minutes, like also LOCM did at yesterday's close, once it hit a 20% gain, I just said, "ok, that's enough, time to cook dinner" and exited. Normally, I stick to an 8% rule. But, I only hold between 1 minute and 10 days. Profit is profit... no matter how you look at it. Don't get greedy.

This filter was posted (I forget by whom) and it was indicated that it was a good short filter. Every time I take a look at would produce excellent results for an actual long filter. Is there something wrong with this filter for a short?

Close is near upper Bollinger Bands(20,2)
close is below open
and price is above 5
MACD Histogram(4,8)has been decreasing 1-day
MACD Histogram(4,8)1-day ago had been increasing
2-day slope of MA(20)is above 0
MA(20)is more than 2% below close
average volume(90)is above 100000

Having used this filter for longs for the past five days (6/25/07) would have been great... for longs. The results are very good. But, i want it short.
