JP, I think you are too. lol

However, ya just might prove ureself correct in the long run. I read a newspaper article last week about the growing resentment towards the "go green" fad and, especially, not-so-sweet ethanol production made possible at the expense of rising food cost.

How could I not know Jean-Michel Jarre? Along with other early pioneers of electronica/New Age music like Tangerine Dream, Vangelis and Kitaro, he's considered one of the granddaddies of its genre.

As far as Keith Jarrett goes, simply irresistible.

You might think Eva has a beautiful voice, but Keith Jarrett is a beautiful jazz pianist. If you don't already know who he is, well, you've been missing out big time.

Sorry Alfie. I was messing with the format layout for Keith Jarrett and must have tripped because next thing I knew Eva and Sarah went "poof!" lol

At any rate, since I haven't saved the Eva post I have no way to get it back. I will most likely need to make a new post. Until then, you'll just have to live without her.

I introduced this hack last Thanksgiving with this to say...
As you may know, the logical disjunction "OR" isn't natively supported in SF language. However, we're able to get by this limitation using the method TRO introduced. I, on the other hand, wish to push this one step further by using it in conjunction with the "If-Then" conditional.

I have noticed that many of you write two filters of the same condition. For example, one filter is written for stocks that crosses above its 20-day moving average and another filter is written for stocks that crosses below its 20-day moving average. Why not just write one filter that would allow both conditions to be met but also informs you which is which. Here's how you write it.
set{condition 1, count(indicator 1, indicator 2,1) * 1}
set{condition 2, count(indicator 1, indicator 2,1) * -1}
set{both, condition 1 + condition 2}
set{result, 1 - count(both equals 0,1)}
result above 0
add column both{result}
Hence, taking the above example for a 20-day moving average crossover:
set{up, count(price crossed above MA(20),1) * 1}
set{down, count(price crossed below MA(20),1) * -1}
set{both, up + down}
set{Xover, 1 - count(both equals 0,1)}
Xover above 0
add column both{Buy (1) / Sell (-1)}

And once you run this filter, you will notice in the fifth column either a "1", indicating a bullish crossover, or "-1", indicating a bearish crossover.

I suggest that you review the explanation I wrote on how the MAX filter should be used, which you can find here.

As to ure question about pair trading, this can easily be implemented with the MAX filter. For example, the following filter will allow you to screen for two stocks of the same sector with one exhibiting high RS and the other low RS over the prior 3 months. This is just a simple illustration of how the filter can be used. You can make it as complex as you please.

set{%gain1mo, Slow Stochastic(22) Fast %K}
set{%gain2mo, %gain1mo 1 month ago}
set{%gain3mo, %gain1mo 2 months ago}
set{return1,%gain2mo + %gain3mo}
set{return2,return1 / 2}
set{return3,%gain1mo - return2}
set{return4,return3 * 0.6667}
set{return,return4 + return2}

set{spx, ind(^spx,return)}
set{betamax, return / spx}

set{strong, count(return crossed above 25,1) * 1}
set{weak, count(return crossed below 75,1) * -1}
set{both, strong + weak}
set{Xover, 1 - count(both equals 0,1)}
Xover above 0

apply to sector(Telecommunications)

add column separator
add column betamax{beta}
add column both{Buy (1) / Sell (-1)}
add column separator
add column sector
add column industry
add column separator

draw spx on plot return
draw return line at 25
draw return line at 75
draw betamax line at 1
do not draw Xover
compare to ^spx
