This is just my opinion, but I don't think he should be trading right now. He has too many other things to think about. If he feels he has to trade to make money right now (to pay for medical bills?), that is a formula for disaster.

Clam61,

I didn't use a stop loss value in my backtest. I also did a period 1-1-02 thru 1-1-04, and it came out very similar (a little better).

Lohmeyer1,

Thanks for the tip. Another method that I use is to wait 30 minutes after the open, then buy if/when the stock hits a new intraday high and is in the green.

Clam61,

My goal is always to come up with a completely mechanical system, so I don't have to pick through the results. That way you take out all personal bias. So in theory, this filter says you should make roughly 4% per pick if you trade all of the results.

I tried to add a line 'and close is above open', in order to pick only stocks that have halted their downtrend. But this severely cut down the number of trades, so I left it out. If you sift through the daily results and find a hammer candlestick on the latest day, then I would think that this would be a very good pick.

I'm going to keep wotking on it to see if I can find any improvements. If anyone comes up with something to add, please pass it along.

lohmeyer,

Nothing really innovative. Opportunity is simply the weekly ATR divided by the stock price. So it represents stocks that move a lot in relation to their price. You don't want to buy a $60 stock that only moves $1 up and down per week. That would give you very little opportunity if you are a swing trader.

But your question got me thinking about the opportunity ratio. I had it set at greater than 0.15. Then I got to thinking - how about stocks where opportunity was at a medium term high? So I changed that to "opportunity reached a new 10 week high". I also changed the max holding period to 10 days, and the profit stop to 20%. Still no stop loss. Here is the new 2 year backtest result:

set{dailytot,average volume(20) * Price}
set{watr4, weekly atr(4)}
set{opportunity, watr4/price}
opportunity reached a new 10 week high
and rsi(5) is below 25
and price is above 0.5
and dailytot is above 150000
and high has been above MA(100) for the last 40 days
and price is above MA(50)

Profit Stop 20%
NO stop Loss
Maximum holding period 10 days
sort by opportunity ascending (lower is better)

I left out 1 thing....there is an exit trigger of "RSI(5) is above 75". I might try taking that out, and seeing what kind of effect it has. It didn't get triggered that often, anyway.

lohmeyer,

I did another test with a 25 day max holding period, and a 25% profit stop. I left the RSI(5)>75 sell trigger in. Now we're getting somewhere...
