Does anybody know of a filter for shorts that works really well for 3-5 day swing trading? The one in this thread backtests very well for longs:

http://www.stockfetcher.com/stockdb/fetcher?p=forum&sub=view&fid=1002&tid=43767

I tried reversing some parameters in this filter to see what it would do for shorts, but it didn't work as well and didn't produce enough picks.

I think in these market conditions trading both long and short is much less risky than trading only long. But I can't seem to find any really compelling short filters. Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks.
