General Discussion · Shorting Question

While I am no lawyer or financial advisor, I know that unsecured loans of any type (shorting would be a form of an unsecured loan) allows the lender/debt collector to take you to court. There they would seek repayment through liens or seizure of assets and/or wage garnishments (up to 25%) until the debt is repaid.

You could file for bankruptcy. That removes the debt and wage garnishments, but not any liens on property.

To your question, what if you have no money, no assets, no property? My opinion, again I am no expert in these matters, seems to me bankruptcy would be the only answer. Goes on your credit report for 7 years. In public record for 10 years. After that, you would still be hard pressed to get any type of loan without a co-signer. Also, any insurance rates (car, house, life, etc) will be significantly higher going forward.

TL;DR - Shorting is an unsecured loan. All laws for unsecured loans apply in this case including liens, seizure of assets, and wage garnishments.

I was curious why the other 14 were getting filtered out and came up with the following.


TL;DR - according to the rules in the OP, at a maximum, only AMT and SBAC should appear in your filter for 05/22/2020. That's based on absolute rules not requiring our personal interpretation.

  • 8 failed my Scorched Earth volume check. Don't know how to get around this one.

  • 2 failed "Only count the pocket pivot if the stock closes in the upper 62% of the day's price range." These 2 should not have appeared in your scan either.

  • The other 4 failed my definition of "daily price closes prior to the pivot should be tight". Relaxing this to .75 brought them back. I would argue PDD and KDP do not have "tight" daily price closes, however.

  • Still, those 4 failed "The low on the day of the pivot must be within 1.4% of the 10-day SMA or the price must have moved up through the 10-day during that day". These 4 should not appear in your scan either. In fact, ignoring all other filters, only FIVN, AMT, and SBAC satisfy this rule.

  • HII, KDP, LSXMK, and AVY are below either the ma(50) or ma(200) and should not appear in your results.

    Fetcher[
    symlist(AMT,PDD,SBAC,BIO,KRTX,FIVN,HII,AVY,LSXMK,SNDR,KDP,IUSG,FLO,IGIB,IGSB)

    /* Only count the pocket pivot if the stock closes in the upper 62% of the day's price range. */

    close > day position(0.62,1)

    /* The low on the day of the pivot must be within 1.4% of the 10-day SMA or the price must have moved up through the 10-day during that day. */

    set{malo1,low / ma(10)}
    set{malo2,malo1 - 1}
    set{malo,count(malo2 between 0 and -0.014,1)}
    set{ma10cross,count(price crossed above ma(10),1)}
    malo + ma10cross > 0

    /* Pocket pivots should not be bought when then stock is below the 50- or 200-day simple moving averages. */
    close > ma(50)
    close > ma(200)

    draw ma(10)

    do not draw ma10cross

    /* The low on the day of the pivot must be within 1.4% of the 10-day SMA or the price must have moved up through the 10-day during that day. */

    @Nobody, when a stock consolidates to a specific level immediately, then sits at that level for weeks, it usully signals an acquisition. Pass on these and look for the next trade.

    @JoeyVinyl, three places to look when trying to find commands.

    1. The manual, which you noticed is not complete.

    2. At the top of the site there is "Indicators". Here you would have found your days( command.

    3. The forums. This one is harder, but I have found commands in the forums that were not listed in either the manual or the "Indicators" link. One example is PlotType.

    The best I can offer is "draw ind(symbol,indicator)". It will draw a line chart below each result of the ticker of your choosing. Example:

    Fetcher[
    close > 100
    reached a new high 52 week high

    draw ind(MSFT,close)

    shillllihs, I'll give credit where credit is due. Breaking even or coming out a bit positive after a black swan event is a rare feat and I commend you. Hope your subscribers realize what a bullet you dodged on their behalf.

    It's been mentioned myriad times that SF does not support intraday.

    SF only supports daily and weekly.

    Besides, the charts on SF are on a 20-minute delay so most intraday filters would be pointless.

    Here is the same filter, but updated to fix some syntax and the comment instructions for look-back. Note that SF has officially stated this filter requires the advanced subscription.

    Mansor, at the time, 05/05/2020, it was the filter kossvet has been posting with the "-" still in it. I've since updated that filter to take out the "-". For me, both the "-" version and the one without seem to return the same tickers.
