TRO, actually the set-up described in the links you posted is a little bit different from the "William's Ooops set-up" that I was referring to in my earlier post. Different in that it requires a Wide Range Bar...followed by a GAP outside the Range of the WRB. fwiw

Nevertheless...it is a nice set-up and one I will add to my arsenal.


Regards,

Never mind. I found it couple of posts ago from U.

"Oops" is an expression originally coined by Larry Williams. The setup occurs when the opening price gaps outside the previous day's range. A buy (or sell) stop is placed just inside the previous day's range in case the market then closes the gap, indicating a reversal. The trade is best treated as a scalp trade and exited before the close. This pattern has no long term forecasting value."

Thanks

Just about every platform has a GAP and %Gap columns you can add to your display.

www.quotetracker.com has gap.

You need a real time feed. You can use ISLD or ARCA for free.

/* tachikawa */


just something i noticed with this is that, when i sort on the 20 week high absgap descending, the .7 and higher values were signifiantly more successful than the lesser during the backtesting i did. is this worth noticing?

TRO: I guess I'm the proverbial dummie who needs all explained to me in infinite detail, but, when you say: "Buy at market close, sell at the open the next session."

Are you saying to run this filter near the end of the day, select from the report for that day and buy stocks (not ever sell) before market close to hold over night, and then, sell at the open at market?
