Love the backtesting. Lets say I wanted to buy just one stock on each day that the filter returned at least one. What decision making process would you put into place for choosing the one you would want to buy?

Thanks, Wallman!!!!! I was just doing some historical scans and it occurs to me that when the index 200 day moving average is down-trending, would this scan not work well in reverse for selling short? Needs more study but it seems the returns would be better in a down-trending market. This may be obvious but I'd like to hear if anyone has tried it. Also, Wallman, do you take a lot of short term (1 or 2 days) gains and get out?

Thanks for the info, Wallman. One more area of concern for me. Do you place your stops GTC or Day? I never can decide if the risk of keeping a stop in place overnight is worth the risk of gapping under it at the open. And if it does, is it best that I stopped out even if the price is well under the stop price. Or would it be best to look for a recovery after the gap?

Wallman, Thanks again. I have been using use sytem for 3 days and haven't sold any yet but they are all green! I'm taking a liking to it for sure. Discipline will be the name of the game. One more question.... What do you think is a typical holding time for this system. I'm asking because of money management. If I set a fixed amount for this system, it would help to get an idea of approx. how many positions I could be holding on average. My guess from what I can already see is about 8-10 days. That would equate to 8-10 positions so a good amount to invest in each stock would be about 10% of the allocated funds for this system. Am I close?

You got it exactly right, Wallman. I was trying to figure out how much to put into each trade so I would come close to exhausting my allotment but still have enough for the trade of the day. I saw something today that was interesting. I paper traded ROV on 4/28 (in @ 10.67). The low today went to 10.00. That was below the 5% stop. It closed @ 10.17. That's above the stop. From what you said B4 you would still be in the trade because you do not want to stop out intraday. Do I have that right? The only reservation I have about this is not having physical stops on these super-volatile stocks. This is great fun!!!

Me again. I just turned on the Volume indicator color option in IQCharts. I didn't even know I could do that! Makes it a lot easier. The scan doesn't return the same stocks as stockfetcher does. I'm working on the scan to try and figure out what the diff is. I simply missed the part about moving the trailer up before it hit the center BB band. Got it now. Makes sense. Thanks again!

Wallman, Still another question (you've really got something going here). One requirement of the screen is that the price touches the bottom BB. What if the day range is entirely below the band? Is this a stock you would not want to deal with? Oh, about the over $10 stocks. I am paper trading with stocks up to $20. Just trying to see the difference in volatility. And I agree, paper trading is NOT like the real thing. Many people paper trade well but lose discipline when the cash is on the line.

Wallman....I'm still using your system with great success. Thank you very much. I have one more question, though. The object here is short term profits. If you have a stock that climbs above the certer BB line, you move the stop to 3%. What if that stock straight-lines and never gets stopped out but also never wants to get the RSI up to 75? How long will you keep looking at it before you dump it? Or does it ever really get like that? If a stock get to be 15 days old or so, I would think you would want to take your profit and move on. Wachuthink?

Been thinking. The criteria for the days candle is: AND PRICE TOUCHED LOWER BOLLINGER BAND(20). If we want to include stocks that really went way down, why not use: AND LOW IS BELOW LOWER BOLLINGER BAND(20). This would include stocks whose entire candle was below the LBB and did not even touch it. There aren't a lot of those, but they can be good ones and they are being missed by this filter.
