Can you give us a jump off the highest bridge filter. In this current climate where commodities rule, and everything else sucks I say go income funds and sit tight until oil goes back downward.

yeah, it's really rough out here; I've only been able to make about 25% this week on natural gas plays....darn stock market, why can't everything be bubble-ized so that we can just throw darts at a chart for picks?

It should be Eeeeeassssy, like in 1998......

marine (and I really doubt that you are a marine), why are you hanging out in a trading zone if you're so scared of a loss or can't understand how to play a churning bearish (in some aspects) market? Curse oil prices and the state of western civilization all you like, but while you're complaining, some of us are able to find wins -- some small, some big -- in THIS market.

I'm sure your bank has some nice CD's that will get you a guaranteed 2 1/2% sometime next year......or there's always the mattress and buried coffee can approach.....

Dear Sky, I am a former Marine. Never assume anything. I have been trading for 40 years and has seen many ups and downs but never seen our American companies go downward in such abrupt fashion as we are seeing these days, Maybe, if you could leave your cubicle for a few hours and walk amongst the living you would see people are losing jobs, the housing market is as low as we have ever seen, and prices sky rocketing on food, energy, and your basic needed commodiities, We all have our lines we establish in trading and to gamble with your hard earned money in this atmophere could be harmful to anyones health not just us poor conservative investors. I say think where you are walking before you walk.

Chetron, I backtested this filter you wrote and added a few lines to it. It tested very well, 86% wins with an ROI of 100. I was impressed. Of course I usually backtest in a positive environment. Positive environments are the times we all love trading in. Anyways, good work.

LOL, THANX MARINE. I WILL WORK ON THAT HIGHEST BRIDGE FILTER. LOL.

AS I MENTIONED IN YOUR OTHER THREAD. I DON'T SEE COMPANIES TAKING ANY HITS.

WE ARE LAUGHING AT OUR COMPANY, BECAUSE THE STOCK IS TANKING AND SALES ARE ROCKETING. SORRY NO PLUGS HERE.


P.S. IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU WOULD SHARE THAT 86% FILTER.

Chetron, even your filter here got me 86% wins and an ROI = 70.41. I only added "and slow stochastic %d is below 25 at close" . Like I said in my earlier thread, performing the backtest in a time frame that had the market in a positive environment surely helps give better performance to any of our filters. But then again, thats the optimum time to be running our "long" filters. Simple analogy in timing is, wait for your specific market to turn green then get your favorite filters into play. Have fun, make money, and feel like you know what your doing. Happy treasure hunting.

Oops, my bad, I had two more lines of code in your filter to go along with the slow stochastic line. Here are the three lines of added code I attached to your filter:

and slow stochastic %d is below 20
and day change % is above 0
and price is below 30

This ups your odds of getting better results.

But remember, wait for green concerning your particular market you are tradiing into.

marine2,
You complain a lot about stuff that doesn't matter in the realm of trading. Its a sign your trading capability is limited to up markets. Very similar to the majority of people who are long only as well. Forget the noise! Its clearly affecting you.

There are some out there (many here) that play both sides when the markets turn. Regardless of any bs the economy is in or what you are hearing in the media EVERYDAY. If this downturn lasts for 2 years you could be complaining for 2 years and have missed an opportunity.

Dear Limestar, fact is, the beauty of this free speech Forum is we all can express our feelings. You can either listen to it or not. Simple as that. Obviously, I affect your thoughts on investing / trading / gambling, with your money or someone elses. Ignorance is bliss in some cases. Take that to heart and do whatever you need to do in making money for either your family or your clients. Have a nice day and yes may your trading techniques (noted trading strategy) be profitable. Don't worry about me, I am doing fine.
