Your first filter is exactly what I wanted.
I’m taking 50 % of the ATR(6) then adding to the high for an entry point.

Appreciate the help!
Just experimenting with better entries for breakouts.

Need help adding an entry of .5 *ATR(6) to a filter.

I want to enter at .5 * ATR (6) of the high of the day.

This is not working

set{A, ATR(6)}
set{B, A * .5}
set{ entry, B + High}

@ cheese

Appreciate the input and I do realize "news" is not the theme of traders on these boards but here is the article and you could not find this one on yahoo.

Does anyone here have a subscription to a news service?

I am specifically considering Benzinga Pro.

I trade DVA quite a bit and got burned a couple of weeks ago when I could not find a news catalyst for a sudden drop. 3 days and a $1000 later I found an obscure article that explained the drop.

Any thoughts out there or recommendations on a news service ?

#5 is interesting, as most have come to realize that no filter works in every market.

Knowing which filter to use in different market environments is helpful, to say the least.

Still working on that myself.

Not sure if this is what is being asked for but this works in range bound markets



Fetcher[/* code by Kevin_in_GA======== My backtest for SPY - the filter does not work in every market condition but does seem to work well when there is a volitile period-for example between oct 2018 and march 2019 the market did a V pattern and gained nothing but this filter gained 7%. In 2017 the market had a steady uptrend and this filter had a positive gain but did not beat the market */

True Story
I am talking to a Nurse today who just started trading on Robinhood a few months ago (She has a desk job).

She shows me her acct. $124K. "Nice" I said. " I made $24K just last Tuesday," she tells me and then shows me all the trades.

"Wow, you'll have to share your trading secrets with me" I smiled.

So she says " Easy, I just don't sell until it goes up"

"No Stop"

" What's that" she laughed

"You have to have a stop, how much pain can you bear?"

She then tells me she was down $18k on one trade and it recovered. I tried telling her that her acct would eventually blow up trading like that but not sure that clicked when I mentioned it.

Ignorance is bliss

Set a stop below your entry and get out if it is hit. Bet maybe .5% of your account. Conversely, set an exit and get out when it is hit.

If Miketranz has mastered getting out just below his entry point then he is a better trader than 99% out there. Peter Brandt who I follow on Twitter has mastered it and does about 42% a year on his account.

The big winners rarely come back to the entry point.
