Comments:
Volume Precedes Price.
Count above average volume bars and look for signs of accum.
Use overhead calc. to emiminate near term holders that are "upside down".
Use profit calc. to eliminate near term holders that would love to secure profits (read: sell).

The name Sleeping Beauty comes from penny stocks long, long bases that "pop out of no where". My goal is to craft a way to look for a pattern, a signature or a sign that precedes the "pop". The theme of this filter assumes that "someone knows news is coming" and they can't hide it.

Sleeping Beauty is not complete. It needs more work. I've yet to get a handle on why some do not follow thru and why others do. Some of the profits this gererates are quite amazing.

Comments and tweaks always appreciated, bring on your best!

Is there no one worthy?
Can no one beat my "Sleeping Beauty"?

It may not hit more than 5-10 times a month, but it has huge upside gains and a win/loss ratio that is very favorable!

g'luck,
Trader Joe

Well, I got no matches for offsets going back two months. Can't evaluate your filter if it returns no matches.

I see that it's not working... I posted it after a looong session and I must have x'd up something. I'll kick it and put it back up.

Ok, I call this one "Whack-a-Mole".
The idea is that spikes in Bollinger and volume are often sold into (mm'ers need to square up their positions). These "pops" are like the "Whack-a-Mole" game at your local Fair. They grab attention and pull in volume (often due to news), then, the buzz wears off and the weak hands sell into the fade. "Whack-a-Mole" looks for a fade and goes long at the first good bar.

G'luck beating this one!!!

ah, it's just ok. Not my best effort. I like the setup, but the "catching the turn" part of the script is just plain lame.
