I like simple systems, so following c1916's lead, I crunched the numbers in Excel for the last 10 years and here is what I came up with:

Total trades 140 (in market 27% of the time)
Winners 88 (62.9%)
Losers 52 (37.1%)
Total gain 38.5% or 3.85% per year

Needless to say, not very impressive over the last 10 years. 2008 was a big down year at -28.5%. All other years were positive except 2010 at -3.48.

Changing the parameters to -.25% and -2.75% yielded better results:

Total trades 157 (in market 30% of the time)
Winners 99 (63.1%)
Losers 58 (36.9%)
Total gain 65.5% or 6.55% per year
2008 was -18.1%

Still not very impressive.

On the bright side, I did enjoy the superhero video attached to one of the BTFD articles!

Try this:

set{var1,close minus open}
set{var2,high minus low}
set{var3,var1 divided by var2}
show stocks where var3 is above 0.9
and var2 is above 0.50

It is interesting how few stocks remain under the 50 day ma for an extended period of time - these few may be candidates for long positions once they close above the ma(50).

Fetcher[count(close below ma(50), 90) above 89 and
close is above 5 and
average volume(60) is above 100000

I hope there are some young guys out there that can benefit from this guys perspective as I have. Episode 476 is priceless - I just wish I had discovered trend following 20 years ago! PS. I have nothing to do with this website and have bought only one book from them - just think its good stuff!

To show a 52 week low on a chart it would be:
draw low 52 week low
Just replace low with high to draw the high on the chart.

Thanks mahkoh. This does work, although the count is limited to the only the last 100 days per the SF user guide. Not sure why, but it is.

Can anyone help me with an indicator? I want to count how many times a fast MA crossed (above and below) a slow moving average for the last two years and display the cumulative count at the bottom of the chart.
