Float, no. But shares outstanding is a close approximation.

add column shares outstanding

I don't know. The way I interpreted it:

Using Weinstein on the weekly is for investors, i.e. long term holds 6+ months.
Using Weinstein on the daily is for traders - less than 6 months.

If you do Weinstein daily and Guppy daily, you can see the entry for both is the exact same day for RGLY.

Yes, SF has a limit of 1 year's worth of trading days (252 days) on any single indicator. You have to do some trickery to include multiple years.

Here is your filter that gives the number of times there have been 9 green candles in a row within the last 4 years (1008 trading days). A result of 1 means this is the first time it has happened in 4 years. The results are sorted from lowest number of occurrences to highest.

chart-time is 3 year
set{var9,count(close > open,9)}

set{y1,count(var9 > 8,252)}
set{y2,count(var9 1 year ago > 8,252)}
set{y3,count(var9 2 years ago > 8,252)}
set{y4,count(var9 3 years ago > 8,252)}

set{z1,y1 + y2}
set{z2,z1 + y3}
set{z3,z2 + y4}

var9 > 8

add column y1
add column y2
add column y3
add column y4

add column z3 {No times in last 4 years}

draw var9 line at 9

sort by column 9 ascending
close 3 years ago > 0

As an example this will show you stocks that had 9 straight green candles in a row. It ill also show you a histogram of the number of green candles in a row.

set{var1,count(close > open,9)}
var1 > 8

If you prefer an oscillator instead of a histogram:

chart-time is 1 year
set{var1,count(close > open,9)}
var1 > 8
draw var1 line at 9

My solution would be to use count for past 2 days and only return the results where the condition happened once. This will exclude any results that happen 2 days in a row.

Example without count.
AAPL condition triggered yesterday and today
MSFT condition only triggered today

ma(3) > ma(7)

Example with count:
Only show results that triggered today but not yesterday.

ma(3) > ma(7)
set{var1,count(ma(3) > ma(7),2)}
var1 between 0 and 2

Weinstein's works well when the market is doing well. Remember, one of the main principles of his methodology is comparing the individual stock to its sector AND to the market as a whole. Since the market has been... shall we say "choppy" since August, there haven't been many good candidates. At least on the long side. He has rules for shorting during bear markets as well, but again it's been a sideways market more than a bull or bear market.

I still look for candidates and have entered a few. Bought a long call on ABR during a strong signal back in August. Broke wma(150) on strong volume after clearing a head and shoulders pattern. It was a beautiful set-up. Of course, it immediately turned around (twice). Held onto it though and am up 86% for now. The method worked, but it decided to take me for a ride before the climb.

I posted it before, but here is the Stage 2 filter I made for myself:

chart-time is 3 years
market not etf

set{var1,average volume(5) 1 day ago}
volume > var2
volume > 500000
close > 5
close crossed above wma(150)
close 1 day ago < wma(150) for last 30 days

add column sector
Relative Strength(^SPX,150) > 1.0
30-day slope of Relative Strength(^SPX,150) > 0

add column var1
add column var2

draw high 3-year high
draw high 2-year high
draw high 1-year high
add column high 1-year high
add column high 2-year high
add column high 3-year high

This may have some merit:

CCI(14) crosses above -100
RSI(5) crosses above 30

Followed immediately by Confirmation:
Green bar closes above EMA(5)
EMA(5) crosses above EMA(13)
Second green bar closes above EMA(5)


Today's examples:
HEAR at 10:30
FAST at 10:53
X at 11:30
ATVI at 15:19

Getting the entry right is the easy part. It's the exit everyone struggles with.

I was working off the same post and ya beat me to it. Glad we were thinking along the same lines. I noticed the SF version produces a much smoother Ulcer Index, not sure why though.

Thanks to nibor, I was able to extend this filter to 15 years. It looks like that is the cap, it breaks if trying to add more.


close > 1
average volume(30) > 1234567

set{x1,high 3-year high}
set{x2,x1 3 years ago}
set{x3,x2 3 years ago}
set{x4,x3 3 years ago}
set{x5,x4 3 years ago}

set{z1,close / 15YH}
set{PercentFromHi,1 - z1}

PercentFromHi < 0.05

add column x1
add column x2
add column x3
add column x4
add column x5
add column 15YH

add column close
add column PercentFromHi
sort by column 12 ascending

draw price line at 15YH
do not draw percentfromhi
do not draw x5
