I traded for years using indicators, and on balance I lost money.
The indicators are determined by the price movement of the stock.
Some indicators lag the price considerably, and to me are unreliable.
When I have back tested these ideas, and they sure looked profitable.
But when I put it into practice, it's a completely different story.
I found myself constantly double thinking my trade, not allowing the filter to play out.
In hindsight, maybe it was my own double-thinking that did the filter injustice.
I set out to create a filter that is self-timing,without the assistance of any indicators.
The indicators to me, are a visual aid.
Indicators do have their place.
Since I have been trading this self timing system, I feel very comfortable in a trade, knowing if I don't win this time around, next time will be a different outcome.
Is it just me, or has anybody else experienced these types of doubts in their system?

Thanks again Graf
I checked thru the candidates, and I picked GLPI. I will probably make an initial commitment tomorrow.
With this Chinese trade deal going sour, I need to be careful. Probably trade it at the end of the day.
As usual $1200 to start her off with.

Thanks for helping out. As I have said before I'm not gifted in writing these filters. When I saw your added column, it got me to thinking. Is there any way I could rewrite this filter, and incorporate how many days since it most recent high as the trigger. EX: Keeping all the parameters the same, when a stock is 6 days from a new high that would be the trigger. I'm just throwing this out there. I have noticed many of my plays, the stock has been below the high for a certain number of days. I'm just thinking out loud, might have absolutely no effect. This is why I originally posted this filter, in hopes OTHERS of like mind can dissect and improve it.
I have been trading this filter exclusively for over 3 years, so maybe she needs new tires now>
Thank you for your effort
Robert

a. In your 1st post you mentioned you keep a log of the stock signals you get from this filter, does that mean you are logging all signals, and how they performed if you had bought a Call on each, or are you just logging the stocks you actually make Call purchases in?

b. Later on in that same post you have a couple of phrases that indicate you might only be logging the stocks whose Calls were not profitable and not logging any of the profitable Calls, am I reading that part incorrectly?

c. Are you also logging the max profit reached for each Call you buy before you exit and by chance what moving avg the stock is nearest to at that point in time?


A. I only log stocks I have played already. Although when I have a new play, I start this new play many times when it's previous signal was a loser.

B. You are very astute, that is a decent way to get started. I only log stocks I have played already, and any new plays I look for a loser last time around.

I have not logged max profit, I usually exit my plays when my belly is full.

If you can help me, try to add more bells and whistles to this filter. It would be nice to know Max profit, and a statistic column showing (win, losers) last 3 trades. That would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance if you can accomplish this.

Good Luck

My first 3 plays from this system filtered are
DIS
V
MA
When I'm perusing thru the stocks, I check to see how the filter performed overall on this candidate.
I try to choose a stock that failed last time. Which would have been my first play(and a loser).
So I make my first commitment this time around. In theory this would be like my second go round for this particular stock. I hope this is making sense to you. Many of the buy signals in this system are great, but it is easy for me to say this, it's a whole other story to have someone trust in this. That is why I have decided to share my plays, in the hopes I might help somebody. Feel free to ask any questions you would like, this is a learning experience for all of us. Out of those three stocks I probably would play DIS, Last trade in it was unsuccessful.
Good Luck

2 new plays for today are MSFT, 3 Jun 125 $4.40 and SNPS 3 Jun 120 $ 4.52. I entered these trades today. Hopefully I'm successful. I'll post my trades as I go for anybody following wins and losers.

I am not a wizard at phrasing these filters on Stockfetcher. I trade off of Think or Swim platform.
I have had reasonable success trading this filter from Think or Swim.
I work a full time job, and needed a system I don't need to micro manage. I select what I believe to be the best candidates from the system. I use the ma(50) as my sell signal. If the stock closes below the ma(50) , I move out of my position. This has happened many times, but I know with reasonable certainty, next play in that particular stock, I should make up the difference and then some. I accept the fact no filter is going to be correct 100% of the time. Knowing this axiom is true, I use money management to compensate myself at a later date. I also would add, this system works well when the market is not so agreeable to bulls. The ma(20) is just a visual gauge. Some of my best trades have come, when I have seen the low bounce off the ma(20).
Here is the filter again as it appears to me. I generally play stocks with a price between 30- 100

Fetcher[
Show stocks where high reached a new 1 year high within the last 2 weeks
and cma(high,6) has been decreasing for the last 2 days
and cma(low,2) was lower 1 day ago
and cma(low,2) is increasing for the last 1 day
and draw cma(low,2)
and close has been above ma(50) for the last 10 days


and Average Volume(90) is above 500000
and price is between 10 and 500
and draw ma(10)
and draw ma(20)
and draw ma(50)

and stock is optionable

I hope this clarifies it for you.
Good Luck

I use this filter to trade options. A considerable amount of these buy signals turn into large gains. Some not so much, and still others no gain at all. This is where money management comes in. I keep a log of stock signals I receive from this filter. My first play in a stock I use a small number of contracts, for me (5) contracts or $1200 per play. If the stock responds, correctly I monitor my position, usually exiting before a selloff. Many times I have exited way to early, in fear of losing my profit. If your first play is not profitable using this system. I log it in my book, and the next time this symbol appears I increase my play to $1500.00 and let her ride. My money management increments are 300 each replay.
This money management system has been crucial to implementing the full dynamics of this filter. Usually before or by the 3rd trade in the stock I have hit pay dirt. The profit, the majority of time has erased any earlier losses, and then some. I usually hold my position for 1-2 weeks.
