I often have Medved Quote Tracker running at the close, and you can watch many stocks post a 0/9000 bid/ask price, even though the last trade may have been 5.75.

I trade on the internet with Freetrade, so there is no way to communicate with the brokerage.

If a large block of BBY was sold on the open at .01, because no bid/ask had yet been set since the 0/9000 price was posted at the close, I would be afraid of placing an order to buy at the open with a buy stop a tic above the close, because $9000 a share would be hard to swallow. Not that they would be able to debit my account with a trade that large.

But if it gapped up on the open above my buy stop, I could get stuck paying more than I wanted to, unless I used a stop-limit. Then I may get left behind.

So, I just may have to get up before the open and manually place my orders, even if it is 6:30 here. What a pain.

I notice that sometimes, at the close, a stock's price will change from a bid/ask price of 5.70/5.75 to 0/9000. I assume that they do this, because there is no after hours trading on these stocks and they do not want any orders placed after the market is closed.

If the closing price was 5.75 I might want to place a buy stop order before I go to bed, on the open, of 5.80. Is it possible to do this when the bid/ask says 0/9000?

Fetcher[close less than 2% above low and close above close 1 day ago and close below close 10 days ago and close near the bottom of 90 day increasing channel and average volume(90) above 100000 and volume above 100000]



Buy next day as soon as price exceeds close and set stop loss at low of previous day.

This is a modification of Chris' Bottom Fisher. A little simpler, but naybe not as successful.

C,

Is this filter for finding the performance of a single stock or for a filter? My original request was to backtest the performance of a filter (say Muddy's) for a period when the general market was trending down. (from 6/30 to 8/13).

Would your filter just be added to Muddy's filter?

Wouldn't it be nice if the offset could be a "range" instead of a "number" of days?

Thanks, KG. Backtests on these look good. I'll watch BBI, HIX and YAKC tomorrow at 10:01.

Do you watch the market before you trade to make sure it is going up, or just play each stock from its chart, regardless of what the market is doing?

I notice that these do not use the filter, "and 60 day slope of close is above 0", so they can be trending down. Does this seem to make a difference?

KG,

Another question, please. Being located on the west coast I hate to get up at 6:30 to check the stocks. Would you suggest placeing a buy order 1% above the close after the market closes, or should I wait until it has been green 15 minutes like Muddy does?

Also, do you still buy if it gaps up 5% on the open, or is up 5% at 10:01 am?

I guess that's two questions.

Thanks,

Dick

Cegis,

Maybe I am not reading it correctly, or you didn't understand what I was asking. The filter you designed shows a list of stocks and what the results were to date.

As an example, suppose I want to run a backtest on Muddy's filter from 6/30/04 to 8/12/04, when the QQQ went down 13%. How would I do this?

Joe,

Are you still running the filter you posted earlier this year?

"Show stocks where Close dropped more than 20 percent over the last 1 day
and Average Volume(90) is above 50000
and close is between .25 and 2.50
and date offset is 5"

If so, is it still working? I tried backtesting it for various days and there were some big loosers and not many winners. Possibly it only works if the market is trending up.

Do you just buy the top 3 to 5 stocks, or do you watch them and buy if they go and hold green for 15 minutes?

I noticed that some stocks that drop 20% one day keep dropping for the next few days. Might be hard to sleep.

Thanks,

Dick

Thanks for all your work in the stockfetcher command website. Could I make a suggestion that the dark blue background is hard to read. It would help if the fonts were in white or lighter than the dark background.

Thanks,

Dick
