Robinhood is good for those like me who are new to trading and only want to trade with very small amounts of money just to get the feel of trading without worrying about getting eaten alive by commissions.

I hope you aren't surprised by the negative comments you are receiving in this thread. Think about where you are posting...on stockfetcher, a website designed for traders to write and SHARE scans to help others develop a trading strategy. We are here because we have the knowledge and/or the desire to learn to develop our own systems. So of course when you come on here talking about your secret system, trying to get people to subscribe, you're gonna have some backlash. We are all here to develop our own strategies and help others, not to say "hey look how good I am, give me money and I'll tell you what to buy".

If you wanted to share your strategies and see them turned into stockfetcher scans, and allow the many talented people here to try and improve them, that would be a different story.

General Discussion · weekly indicator but daily chart

A question for everyone...

I have a scan looking for weekly CCI(10) below -100. There seems to be a discrepancy between the CCI value given in the table, and the value drawn on the chart. For example, KEM shows up on November 2nd, 2017. In the table it says the CCI is -100.58, but you can see the weekly CCI is still above -100 on the chart.

Just wondering if this is some bug since its a weekly timeframe for the indicator, but i leave the price plot as daily.

Fetcher[apply symlist(KEM)
draw weekly cci(10) line at -100
add column weekly cci(10)
weekly cci(10) is below -100

Another thing to consider is the likelihood of you getting out right at 2%. I’ve seen some spike up, and by the time your order is processed it’s back down. I wouldn’t personally trade this, seems like there is too much going against you.

This was my first shot at it, but there have been many before me to write scans looking at how many times a certain percent gain was achieved using the count function. I think TRO was the first with his crockpot filter, I think it was called. I had no reason for using 100 days in the first scan other than I copied that portion from someone else! I guess by using 100 days, you can easily say “this stock hit a 2% gain 75% of the time.”

i've had fun reading about this noplex strategy, and it has challenged me to create my own 2% strategy. I dont mean to hijack the thread, but thought it could lead to some good conversations. Back testing is hard since I have to do it by hand, and some days both the 2% target and the 3% stop were hit, so I have to use other software that lets me see hourly candles to see which was hit first. So far I've only looked at the last month. The results are...

3.77
-3.01
-2.99
-2.99
2.00
2.02
2.03
4.86
2.00
-2.99
-1.74
1.95
2.00
-3.01
2.00
-0.82
-1.31
1.98
2.00

While it is only 57.8% accurate, it did end up making 7% in 1 month. The rules were to buy the first listed stock on close, set a 2% limit and a 3% stop. If neither are hit the next day, sell at close. I avoided ETFs in the backtest. If anyone wants to keep backtesting or play around with it....

Has anyone worked with zerolag MACD? I tried to code it, but it seems i need the advanced subscription.

It doesn’t seem to work if you say count is 2. You may have to say count is below 3 and above 1. This looks like it works. One thing to consider is that it counts when the high CROSSES the upper band. So if it opens above the band, the high isn’t technically crossing it.

Fetcher[count(high crossed above upper bollinger band(20,2), 7) is below 3
count(high crossed above upper bollinger band(20,2), 7) is above 1
add column count(high crossed above upper bollinger band(20,2), 7)
]

if you are looking for 2% short term gain, here is a simple scan based off of TRO's stuff from a while back...buy at close, set a sell limit at 2% gain, sell on close the next day if target is not hit, rinse and repeat.

I'd be curious to see how this simple scan stands up to your algorithm.
