TRO,

My bone of contention wasn't about fading the gap, but the way in which you misinform ure newbie brethren by making it ipso facto the art of simplicity -- a non sequitur in my otherwise not so humble opinion. Be that as it may, you then seem to indemnify ureself by such clauses as "it ain't what you trade, it's how you trade" or "you have to TRADE". But, if you care to remember, I've been through this route before. And it amazes me you still practice the same rite of bad faith, FWIW.

Niko, you have a right to your opinion.

I have a right to mine.

But I did NOT misinform anyone!

I posted a filter that proves itself via statistics.

That is FACT, NOT OPINION.

SIMPLE means it is NOT complicated.

The rules are clear.

Even a NEWBIE can follow the rules.

ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN! You know that.

If there was a "lock" there would not be a market.

And it is NOT what you trade, it is HOW you trade it.

You can trade a P.O.S. stock and make money.

You can trade a great stock and lose money.

It is all in HOW YOU TRADE IT!

But there is no bad faith on my part!

"...Trading stocks is like breaking and entering, the more you put in to bag, the longer it takes. The longer you remain inside, the higher the chance you get caught..."

--------------------------------------

I DO like this analogy !!!

Well said, RumpledOne !!!

TRO,

Firstly thanks for the filters and words of advice. But please explain to this thick person how this is supposed to work. In one of your posts you say "Go long on gap downs and go short on gap ups." How exactly does this work? Are there other posts I should be looking at that give the basic information on using this filter?

Thanks...
Tom

How exactly?

I think I explained it.

If a stock gaps down, you buy it.

If a stocks gaps up, you short it.

I only trade stocks that have filled the gap at least 80 of the last 100 days.

At the open, you see which way they gapped, if they move toward the previous close, I enter the trade. I exit BEFORE they fill the gap. I just take my profits.

dafishman,

The rule of the game is that once the gap is "filled" it usually reverses and continue with its initial trend.
