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.

Fetcher[set{dailytot,average volume(20) * Price}
set{watr4, weekly atr(4)}
set{opportunity, watr4/price}
opportunity is above .15
and rsi(5) is below 22
and price is above 0.5
and dailytot is above 150000
and price has been above ema(100) for the last 40 days
and price is above MA(50)
]



hold for a maximum 5 days
sell at 15% profit
max 10 trades per day
sort by RSI(5) ascending

This backtests at an average gain of around 4%, with around a 65% success rate. Looking for improvements.

The more I backtest this filter day by day the more I am finding this to be a great filter. I cant program my particular style of trading into SF's backtester so I have to go thru it on a day by day basis. So far Ive gone back about 3 months so far. Still doing more research.

Excellent find.

Im not sure how to do it but maybe you could write into the formula support and resistance levels

i have done that by using

set {resistance, high x day high}

set {support, low x day low}

basically support and resistance is the high and low in a certain time interval "x".

traderblues

this looks promising

is there anything you look for when going over your fetcher results? any other technical indicators or candle patterns?

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.

BJS

I added the support and resistance lines. currently set at 8 week high or low, but it is configurable
