Filter Exchange · Good thread for channeling stocks

Would like some help creating a filter, stock price above 10, large ATR if possible so we don't find quiet stocks. Something with maybe a 60 to 90 day regular channel range. Stocks that can be bought near the low of the channel and sold/short sold near the top.

Anyone have any good ones?

KO, for example. Buy 57, Sell 60. Rinse and repeat. Any filter to get some good ones? Thanks.

Your work is legendary. I had a question in regards to your "buy close, sell next day open filter" - if you first filter out for stocks that are trending MACD higher or maybe have a bullish MACD crossover, do you get a higher % of gap ups?

And, vice-versa for gap-downs?

In addition, it makes sense to me that if the general market (the nasdaq composite, for example) is "bullish," that the major stocks will tend to gap up more. And vice-versa, if the nasdaq is in a bearish trend (as defined by MACD), stocks will tend to gap down more.

I know you're against indicators, but does using a mechanical indicator improve results any?

Thanks and keep up the good work.

Is it possible for one to get his/her filter results emailed daily for a particular filter? For example, if I want to have the results for filter 7 on "my filters" emailed to me, is there a way I can send StockFetcher to do this?

Anyone have "The Logical Trader" by Mark B. Fisher? I heard the ACD breakout system was pretty good.

Hey WallStreetGenius,

I really agree with your prediction for next week. Major market bottoms are typically re-visited, and if next week is to be a major bottom, the 2070 area on the Nasdaq must be revisited. Finally, bullish divergence almost invariably in the onset of a major bottom.

And, if you read Hirsch, you know that the Dow tends to rally 50% from the low of a mid-term election year to the high of the following year!

By the way, in the last 2 days, the screen at the top of this thread has done UNBELIEVEABLY well.

Okay, I tried to write something. Copy and paste the following:

1 year slope of close above 0
price between 15 and 400
atr(90) above 3 percent
volume > 500000
volume (90) > 500000
do not draw 1 year slope of close
do not draw atr(90)
ADX(14,14) is above 30

Hey guys,

I've been a lurker for a longtime, but still a newbie to coding.

I have some ideas and was wondering if someone could put together a filter.

I think it's ideal to trade a stock:

1) With the trend (use a moving average crossover, MACD, or some other indicator) of both the stock and the market (the Nasdaq or S&P). For example, if you're going to trade long on a Nasdaq-listed stock, make sure both the QQQQ and the stock itself are in an "uptrend." Vice-versa for downtrend.

2) Trade a stock that has a high ATR -- you want a stock that is moving. (this should be easy enough). You don't want something like GE which barely moves.

3) Trade a stock that has a very high likelihood of "trendiness." For example - take a look at HANS. When HANS had its runs, it would go up almost every single day. Or TASR. I got in on both of these towards the end of their runs but still made a decent amount because they would just keep running.
(Maybe the ADX indicator for this last approach)? How can we determine a stock that can go on streaks. I want a "streaky" stock.

Is there any way to combine all these 3 ideas into one filter? Also, in terms of entry, I've noticed that in a big-winner, it's best to enter in on pullbacks, such as the 20 day EMA. However, there then needs to be a stop loss limit, perhaps the 30 day EMA (just throwing out this number).

Thanks in advance.

Would anyone kindly tell me how to add a parameter that will screen for stocks that closed at (or very close to) the high of the day.
