Niko, Thanks for the input. That is what I have been doing up till now. Having viewed thousands of stockfetcher graphs, I have noticed that a considerable amount of stocks gravitate to the first trading day of the new year,(Jan 2). Some stocks use the very first days high as support, frequently bouncing from this point. Also I have noticed many stocks that are below the first day of the year low, will rally up to the low of the first day of the year, and that becomes the ceiling. It happens so frequently, both scenarios, that I wonder if this is not how hedge funds and mutual funds trade. I don't know if it is possible to write a filter like this, where the filter can count the number of times these support and resistance points are met. Personally I have run out of ideas. By the way you are correct about aapl. Though I see a very difficult summer brewing for all stocks.

Is it possible to assign a specific day to a filter. For instances, say I want to know how many times a stock has breached the low on April 15, for that particular stock. I would like to assign specifc dates to specific stocks. Also have a column that reflects the data. Is this possible?

Right you are Alan.. I believe the reason is, that the DMAM(11,-6) is a lagging indicator, and what you appear to see on the charts, with the DMA(11,-6) crossing above the upper bollinger band is such, because the price has already began it's ascent.

Good reading, Valid point Niko. This whole sub-prime mess is a sham. Just look how many stories were cooked up during market trading days, in order to have ones position turn favorable. This market is corrupt to the core. I had spent a considerable amount of time in Europe last summer, and had the privledge to listen to Bloomberg Europe. They had this man from Australia who said (this was in June) that the US sub-prime debt is over 500 billion. When I returned to USA, I was listening to all the usual pundits saying " the sub-prime mess is contained". Even Europe knew the extent of the situation, but heaven forbid the American investor was allowed to know the truth. This would cause to much competition heading for the exits. Think about it! We should have a poll on Stockfetcher, where you cast a vote whether you believe any of the reports coming out of Washington. I for one think their all full of SH&T. While I am on a roll, who likes any of these candidates running for President. Another sham again.

I do agree with Niko, all indicators are lagging and are indeed based upon the price. If you are writing systems based on the indicators to give you a signal, that would be the same as putting the cart before the horse. Just look at Mary's posts. Always touting the rsi(2) and such. You would have gotten killed in this market. Instead I favor Tro's sentiments, price is everything. Having learned my lesson the hard way, I have limited my universe of stocks to 10 candidates. Knowing these stocks intimately, and only entering a trade if my price criteria is met, otherwise I sit on the sidelines. I do not day trade, never had great success with it.

While walking down the street one day a US senator is tragically hit by a

truck and dies.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems

there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you

see, so we're not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in," says the senator.

"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do is

have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose

where to spend eternity."

"Reall y, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven," says the


"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down,

down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front

of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake

his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich

at the expense of the people.

They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and


Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who has a

good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time

that before he realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises...

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St.

Peter is waiting for him.

"Now it's time to visit heaven."

So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of contented souls

moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a

good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St.

Peter returns.

"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose

your eternity."

The senator reflects for a minute, then answers: "Well, I would never

have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I

would be better off in hell."

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to


Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land

covered with waste and garbage.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting

it in black bags as more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder. "I

don't understand," stammers the senator. "Yesterday I was here and there

was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank

champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland

full of garbage and my friends look miserable. "What happened?"

The devil looks at him, smiles and says.......

"Yesterday we were campaigning. Today you voted."

Johnpaulca After reading that poorly written scam email, I have come to the conclusion America is sicker than I first thought. If it is not the CNBC scam artists promoting stocks without any solid reason, or ambulance chasing attorney's conjuring up future prospects via commercials on TV, or people suing everything that walks, or gun toting degenerates shooting innocent people in colleges throughout America, or the Government handing out $600-$1200 dollar vouchers, or rampant illegal immigration cluttering our schools, hospitals, and welfare system, or the Washington Elite lying through their teeth about every single financial report. What has America become? Will Americans do anything for money, Including threatening to kill people through ransom emails? It's time we looked in the mirror as a nation, and realize that we are definitely on the wrong path. Just my two cents worth.
