I think this will work.
Show stochs where ATR(1) divided by ATR(1) 1 day ago is greater than 2
Hope so anyway.

I'm posting this as a follow up and also just to see if I can post one without making duplicate posts. I really don't know what's up with that. Muddy, I want to thank you again for a great filter. Not just the filter, but a new way of thinking about reversals. This has truly helped me understand the relationship between price and volume. This relationship is constant for most other strategies as well. For instance, it's a lot easier now to spot breakouts before they happen. Almost like a light got turned on in my thick skull.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Sorry for the duplicate posting. Not sure why that happens. It has happened to me B4. Anyway, didn't do it on purpose.

Hi Muddy! Thanks again for a great filter. I'm hoping that the results are as good as you say in the bad times. That will be great. I'm doing a few things a little different than you have suggested. This is what works for me. First, the ENTRY: I will NOT go below 50000 in average volume. If I need more stocks, I'll raise the price instead of going below 50000. Consideration in order of importance. 1. Volume increase or spike. That's a must. 2.The distance (in %) from the price to the 20 day moving average (BB centerline). 3. Then comes the tail. I use that criteria to rank the picks. Then I look at the chart for warm and fuzzy. Then it's the highest ranked stock that goes green! I don't have a fixed 3% rule but I look at #2 above and make sure it still has a long way to go. Usually, I get them between 0% & 1%. I quite often will buy 2 stocks if the 2nd one looks good. EXIT: I have found (for me) that your exit rules are causing 2 things that I don't want. One is that they sometimes give back profits before they get to a trigger point and I wind up settling for less. The other thing is that I wind up holding longer than I like. I like to keep um moving. My way of doing it is to wait until they are up 10% or hit the top BB. Then I will place a very tight stop (1%) or just sell, depending on the chart pattern and the RSI(14) value. You can spend a lot of time waiting for some of these to get the RSI up to 75. For me, 10% in 3 days is much better than 20% in 15 days.

Well, how does all that sound? It's working good for me but as I said it's a little different form your stragegy.

Thought you guys might be interested. I have been trading real dollars using Muddy's BB filter for some time now. Below are the stats for the positions I have closed:

Trades: 28
Average profit per trade: 9.7%
Average hold time: 9.6 days
Winners/Losers: 26/2

Of the open positions, I have 4 losers but they all come back with time. None have stopped out.

Keep in mind, the market has been very good lately.

dumcrief, how low will you go in price on your 'under 1.00' filter? I backtested it and it returned a lot of stocks the are less than 10 cents. Still, the results were good. Do you use those?

are71, I backtested the Filter you suggested in the previous post. The results are quite impressive. However, it returns too many stocks. I'm looking at narrowing it down a little. Have you thought of a good way to hack it down to a few really good ones? If I come up with something I'll post it here.

Thanks for the filter.

Been thinking more. You can also make sure the last 3 days were red candles by adding the following criteria: close 2 days ago was under open 2 days ago and close 1 day ago was under open 1 day ago and close was under open.
