1. If a stock is priced 20$ and then falls 20% would it mostly often be the BEST choice to BUY the stock when it FALLS 20% or should you wait to see some strength the next day (if it goes up 5% again next day) they you should buy and go in?

Because sometimes if a stock falls 20% it could fall 20% more the next day...

What would you do? I am not sure about what is the best strategy to go IN a stock when you see some strenght.. because maybe the stock fell down from 10 to 5 in 1 week and then it is showing some strength to 6 and then you buy at 6 level or should you just buy the stock when it falls to 5 and try to get it cheapest at the bottom ?

Very dangerous to enter with some confirmation that the down trend is (probably) over. Before trading, I suggest you read some books (Elder, Pring and many more) on this matter and follow some posts from TRO and others here.

My advise to newbies is buy when moving off of major support, like ma, 20,50 or 200. My favorite is ema(100), I look for wide range bars crossing this moving average then I wait for a retest, meaning I want to see ema(100) as support. This is a great place for swing traders to enter. Look for increased volume on the break above ema(100). I think it's very risky for newbies to go bottom fishing, you have to be very skilled or you will be eaten alive very quicklyand ultimately out of the game. The trick is to find something that works consistently not just a one day wonder...good luck.

EMA(100): This filer would help, I have added Avery stat filter, the rest was pieced together from the filter GURUS on this site.

I enter only those stocks coming from below, with the exception of those that have corrected from above and holiday around the ema(100) for some time before resuming it's trend.

Fetcher[set{Shadow, day point range / opcl}
Shadow above 1

set{Hi, high - max(open, close)}
set{Lo, min(open, close) - low}
set{Hiratio, Hi / opcl}
set{Loratio, Lo / opcl}
set{Upper, mod(Hiratio,100) * 100}
set{Lower, mod(Loratio,100) * 100}

add column Upper{Upper (%)}
add column Lower{Lower (%)}

low is below ema(100) for the last 1 day
close is above ema(100)
add column sector
draw Williams %R(100)

set{whiop, weekly high - weekly open}
set{Long_Profit, whiop / weekly open }
set{wkProfitPct, 100 * Long_Profit }

set{qtrpct, count(Long_Profit > .0025 , 52)}
set{WeekDiff, weekly close- weekly open}
