What wording do you use on the filter to see the performance of a screen from May 3, 2002 to Sept. 18, 2002?

I have tried an offset number with both dates, or with a combination of numbers like "from 268 to 208", but no luck.

If I want to find what a screen did just during a down cycle in the market, how do I set the offset days or how would I word the formula? For example, how would I set the formula to find what performance a screen had from 1/1/2000 to 6/1/2000?

Thanks,

Dick

Muddy,

Do you ever buy Call options instead of shares on stocks when they go green? Many do not have options, but some do, and it seems that buying deep in the money calls could increase profits substantially.

For example today ABGX and EXEL both have options and ABGX Jul 5 calls pay 99 cents for every dollar the stock goes up. For an investment of $400 per contract, if the stock went up $1 the options would have gone to $499, a 25% profit. While 100 shares of the stock would have cost $885 and the gain of $100 would have been 11% profit.

EXEL options would have profited about 33% instead of 13% on a rise of $1 in the stock price.

I would like to run some back tests of these different screens, but do not know how. Can someone explain how to do backtests in simple terms, so us newbies can understand.

Thanks,
Dick

So, this is not really a screen that Stockfetcher can help us find, right? Or is there a way that SF can help us find candidates?

Hi, Muddy.

Yes, my brokerage, Interactive Brokers, does have continous real time quotes, but the charts are 20 minute delayed, so by the time the green volume bar shows it is 20 minutes after it happened. But I guess, the term, "in the green" did not refer to the volume bar, as I thought.

So, tonight the screen brought up ABGX with almost 8 million shares traded and IGL with over 2 million.

Without re-reading all of the posts to find the buy target, was it above the close, or above today's high?

Thanks,

Dick

Muddy,

How do you trade at 8:40 when the charts are 20 minute delay and do not show any trades until 8:50? Or do you just go by the real time quotes, and figure it is green if it opens above the previous close?

Do you know of a free charting service that gives real time charts?

Dick
