That previous 'Bollinger Bandwidth(20) filter looks like it would be good for short selling LOL.

Dmindy: You guys are good! In your BB filter, you included FI(15). I've never heard of FI (force index) in my life! FI isn't even in the SF "index" of indicators. Amazing. Thanks!

This is a highly modified version of a filter I copied from this thread.
You will get very few hits with this but most will be in the money!

:stock
Fetcher[Show stocks where volume gained more than 300 percent over the last 1 day and where the Bollinger width(20) reached a new 120 day low 2 days ago and price is between 1 and 5 and price touched upper bollinger band(20) and where Close has been increasing over the last 1 days]



You will start getting positive returns with this filter after about 1 or 2 days. Look at day 9 and at the stock ICAD and also GROW. The narrowing of the BB band is great! The volume break out is just wonderful. I love this kind of stock and this filter gives them to you.
Do a date offset of 12 and get a paper towel to catch your drool!

Let me know what you think and especially if you improve it!

The not too shabby sreen:
Fetcher[Show stocks where the Bollinger Width(20) has reached a new 3 month low and OBV has increased for more than 1 day and EMA(13) increased for 1 day and volume(10) is above 100000 and close is between 1 and 60]

What wrong with this filter?
Why are the widths different?

show stocks where the bollinger width(20) 5 days ago dropped between 0 and 0.05 and close is between 1 and 2 and volume is above 100000

I've been fiddling with these BB squeeze filters as well and simply wanted to post where I'm at - I think they are largely variations on "themes" already posted so I apologize if they're redundant and I don't claim "authorship" - I wouldn't mind a comment or two if anyone see's anything new. I think the first one (variation on ig0r) and the fourth one (variation on petrolpeter) look pretty good - the key being to "detect" the BB expansion immediately the day it happens and to make sure bullish signals (volume up, green at open, etc.) are present.

I noticed BSQR meets this criteria and I think met Muddy's filter a couple of days ago. Surprisingly (perhaps not so surprisingly) BSQR also passed my MACD filter Friday.

I saw Todd's post on yahoo about "too many" filters and I agree it can get very confusing - I spent a couple of hours today just trying to organize "My Filters" in SF - but I like his idea about filter "owners" and a little more method to this madness - I'm also working on the "explosion" filter (I think Karen's idea) and getting close - I'll post separately here in a few days.

One other comment - the global filter is the same one I'm using now for my MACD filters - however it is slightly different than the global filter in my previous post "Building MACD Filters" - notice I got wise to other sectors (besides technology) - I guess there's money to be made elsewhere - LOL ...

Global Filter

Fetcher[close is between 0.1 and 10 and volume is above volume 1 day ago and average volume(90) is above 50000 and low is increasing and close is increasing and open is above close 1 day ago]



BB Squeeze 1

Fetcher[bollinger width(20) 1 day ago dropped between 0 and 50 percent over the last 4 days and bollinger width(20) is between 0 and 0.5 and bollinger width(20) gained between 5 and 100 percent and price touched upper bollinger band(20)]



BB Squeeze 2

Fetcher[bollinger width(20) reached a new 1 month low 3 weeks ago and bollinger oscillator(20) has been increasing the past 3 days and price touched upper bollinger band(20) the past 3 days and FI(15) is above 0 and OBV has been increasing the past 2 days]



BB Squeeze 3

Fetcher[bollinger width(20) reached a new 1 month low 3 weeks ago and bollinger width(20) has been increasing the past 3 days and price touched upper bollinger band(20) the past 3 days and FI(15) above 0 and OBV has been increasing the past 2 days]



BB Squeeze 4

Fetcher[bollinger width(20) reached a new 30 day low within the last 2 days and bollinger width(20) is increasing and high is above upper bollinger band(20)]
