Trading RDN and PMI on the long side almost daily! It's like printing money...

...maybe the scans should be renamed "Run Forest Run to the Printing Press"!! LOL

Thanks, TRO for all you is not easy, but having the stats on our side helps immensely!

Thanks for this great filter: /* Long Profit Percent Statistics Display */ ...

...I was wondering if it could be tweaked to show what the count for Long_Profit of 1-2%, 2-3% etc, would be, but only for stocks whose open AND close are above yesterday's middle crosses involved.

Just wondering how the stats look for stocks that "pop".

Thanks again.

I've read MILK THE COWS many a time, and I understand that 1% is a bit much to let go before getting in...

...I just thought that if GOOG's ATR is around 2-3%, I might have a chance to grab one percent after the initial one percent move.

Maybe I'm misreading the ATR number.

Thanks for your insight, though.

Got the revision, thanks.

Anyway of seeing the stats for the last 50 or 100 days? Sorta like with your "Middle of the Range" stats using mcorr?

Thanks again.

Great stuff...

I've written some code in my day on SF, but I'm stuck on this one...maybe you can help.

I would like to know how often a stock closes up on the day if it rose at least 1 % anytime during the day.

For example, GOOG closes at morning at 9:45am it is up 1% @ 656.50 and I buy 100 shares.

How often will GOOG be above my buy point? Is it found using "mcorr" function?

So, instead of buying on a cross of the "middle" price range from the day before, I'm buying on a cross of a positive 1% move.

I know SF gives a list of stocks, not just GOOG, so I'll make the price range to find what I want.

Thanks for your help.

Hey! That's my blog! StockMonster.

Basically I buy uptrending stocks when the SAR has "flipped" to "buy" AND the green DMI has crossed the red DMI. If the SAR flips back to sell, I only get out if and when the red DMI has crossed the green, thus staying in for a longer run.

Usually I'm happy with 5-8% gain and I'm out.

General Discussion · DMI and Parabolic SAR magic

I know this is an "old" thread, but I just wanted to alert anyone who is interested in a trading blog I set up a few months ago that trades the "magic" SAR/DMI combination. I call it "The Flip."

The stock must be in an uptrend. Buy when both indicators confirm the other and hold until the reverse occurs.

I have discovered two intersting points.

(1) If the stock became a "sell" on the SAR but not the DMI, you didn't sell (of course). But if you found the stock out (on StockFetcher, or StockCharts)as the next SAR buy signal was given, and the DMI has stayed positive, you can get in. The uptrend is so powerful that the stock should continue to climb. Uptrends seem to make the "DMI must cross from negative to positive" rule unecessary.

(2) I'm in the process of tweaking my sell rules to be when the stock closes 2 days below the 50 day moving average, NOT when the DMI flips negative. Again, in uptrending stocks, the 50 day was great support and the DMI would have made me trade twice when I could have just stayed in it longer.

Anyway, the blog is...

Hope it helps your trading!
