Thanks Chetron. Can you tell me what were the "special characters" that I used that kept the clickable feature from kicking in? The "%" and "#" symbols? Dang! They look great on my results page. Anything else?

Thanks Chetron. I forgot about the basic package. I appreciate you covering my blindspots.

One other filter that I use in conjunction with the "Ultimate Previous-Close-to-Open Gap-Up 10+ Cent Bullish Stat Filter" is the following "Days 1 - 30 Bullish Gap-Up Stats" scan. Just insert your stock(s) symbol in the "SYMLIST( )" parenthesis and you will have a six week readout of the stock's daily gap up history:

When you are face-to-face with an impressive string of day-after-day results (e.g., ICLN as of the first week of Jan. 2009) it may embolden you to take the plunge.

The number headings in parenthesis -- (5) (4) (3) (2) (1) -- are the individual five day previous-close-to-open gap up figures.

They are followed by number headings that are simply trading days with the number beneath reflecting how many of those days had 10+ cent gap ups. This is a helpful feature for determining which stocks are on a "hot streak" in terms of gapping up 10+ cents. For example, the column "10" reveals the number of days out of the past 10 that the stock has gapped up 10+ cents (i.e., 10-of-the-last-10-days, 9-of-the-last-10-days, etc.)

The filter is preset to give the "100" column results sorted in descending order, from higher-to-lower percentages, based on the typical 100-day statistical standard. The stocks that I hunt for are those that are on a recent 10-day "hot streak" and that also have comparatively high longer-term (e.g., 100-, 75-, 50-, 30-, or 25-day) statistical results.

These number headings are interspersed with "avg3", "avg5", "avg10", "avg30", "avg100", "avg250", and "avg400" columns showing what the average gap up is for the number of days indicated.

Happy gapping.

Jim

I short intraday with Interactive Brokers (who provide a phenomenal number of shortable stocks). I never leave the screen while in the trade because these babies can cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time.

Tommy K. Cryer researched and wrote a definitive U.S. tax history report called "The Memorandum" in his defense in Federal Court against the IRS and won a unanimous decision from the jurors 12-0. He wasn't writing for the sake of frivolity; his very freedom was at stake and he had to present a convincing argument to a jury of his peers or else spend a good portion of the rest of his life behind bars. It makes for a sober read.

At the bottom of the following page is a link to "The Memorandum":

P.S. I pay taxes like the rest of the herd. What Tommy Cryer did in terms of all-or-nothing is far beyond my risk vs. reward tolerance.

Interactive Brokers has a list of "Shortable Stocks" with amounts available in their inventory. Also, on their trading platform there is a column that can be installed that will list green when shortable, and red if not. It makes trading Bearish as easy as Bullish.
