You are certainly right about that! :)

be careful with these kind of arrangements. Friendship and money arrangements often end in disaster (for the friendship) and sometimes for both.

Sure, I have created filters with over 1700% profits, but I wouldn't trade them ... "for entertainment purposes only". Start reading the archives, you'll find a bunch of great filters.

Be careful, I have a filter that historically produces 800% ROI in backtesting, but actually loses money if you trade 0.01% of the volume of every stock ... the losing percentages had more cash attached than the winning percentages.

I always run my own analysis in Microsoft Excel using the downloaded trades.csv files.

How much would you charge me to sit beside you to watch and learn how you trade for a week? I can't think of a better way to accelerate the learning curve.

I know Corsino has a bunch of SUPER filters ... I would love to see the one's he actually trades.

If your friend offered you his/her own money to trade, what kind of arrangement would be fair and/or reasonable in regards to sharing of the profits? For example, would it be fair to split 50% of the profits earned (not the initial equity, just the profits) from trading your friend's money? What's the lowest percent that you would consider worth your time and effort?

Backtesting Support · Different trade results for similar date ranges

When I run the following backtest from (12/31/2005 to 2/14/2006) and from (12/31/2005 to 2/16/2006), the "trades" are different. Why is that?

/* Judgetrade RSI(2) Filter */

and count(RSI(2) 2 day ago above 99,60) is above 0
and RSI(2) 1 day ago is below 5
and average volume(10) above 250000
and close one day ago more than 10% below close 2 days ago
and close more then 5% below close 1 day ago

/* Exit Strategy: Hold 3 days */

This was forwarded to me by a friend. $1000 membership. What am I missing?

A Way to Option $5,000 into $170,005 in 335 days???

It sounds absurd, I know. But when I did the math… and discovered that it was not only possible, but also highly probable… I told my analyst he could guarantee your money back if it didn’t happen exactly as described in the pages that follow.

You could have turned:

$5,000 into $64,250 in 2 days (with just one trade)
$5,000 into $22,500 in 13 days (with just one trade)
$5,000 into $50,350 in 41 days (with just one trade)

Dear Reader,

I was skeptical, to say the least.

Five thousand dollars became $170,005. In less than a year.

So, I crunched the numbers a second time. The same result.

I was looking at Jeff Clark’s track record, 32 trades. 30 winners.

If you’d put $5,000 into each of Jeff’s recommended trades during that time span – including the only two losing picks – you’d have $170,005 today in profit.

Going back even further - to October 2003 - if you’d put $5,000 into each his recommended trades – you’d have $284,055 today.

... the rest of the ad continued here ...

Got this in the email box today ...

The Little Book That Beats the Market (Unabridged) by Joel Greenblatt

What the Critics Say
"The Little Book is one of the best, clearest guides to value investing out there." (The Wall Street Journal)
"A marvelously clear explanation of the value investing approach." (Financial Times)

Publisher's Summary
Can you spare three hours to learn how to beat the market? As unlikely as it may seem, hedge fund manager and professor Joel Greenblatt, whose investment firm has averaged 40% annual returns for over 20 years, can teach you how. You can achieve investment returns that beat the pants off even the best investment professionals and the top academics. In fact, you can learn how it's possible to more than double the annual returns of the stock market averages.

But there's more. You can do it all by yourself. You can do it with low risk. You can do it without making any predictions, and you can do it by following, step by step, a time-tested, proven "magic formula" that uses only common sense and two simple concepts. Best of all, once you are convinced that it really works, you can choose to do it for the rest of your life.

A runaway best seller even before it was published, The Little Book That Beats the Market shows how successful investing can be made easy for investors of any age. It's never too early or too late to start investing, and with Greenblatt as your guide you'll know exactly where to go and what to do. By following the clearly outlined simple steps and magic formula, you can achieve extraordinary long-term investment results with a very low level of risk.
