There's a lot of variation in how you define the amplitude and length of both the price surge and consolidataion. I haven't seen one filter that "does it all" . Its a lot easier to find these in the thinner, lower priced stocks ( a cherry pick is JRCC, about 4 of them in the last few months). You may need to make several variations to suit yourself and catch a lot of them.
Here's a couple examples, both short term events of about 10 days


Fetcher[ 3 day slope of close is between 0 and -.3

close 3 days ago gained 20% within the last 5 days

avg vol(3) is 30% below avg vol(5) 3 days ago

close > 1
avg vol(8) > 100000
]




Fetcher[5 day slope of close is between 0 and -.3

close 5 days ago gained 20% within the last 5 days

avg vol(5) 5 days ago is 30% above avg vol(3)

close > 1
avg vol(10) > 100000
]

Thx...I appreciate your response and at first glance your suggestions do look interesting...I will play around with it.

My initial question though is based on the definition here:

http://thepatternsite.com/htf.html


The main reason I joined here was to find Cups w/ Handles...I like the formula presented here but I find most of them elsewhere...But the $45 for 3 mos. deal seems to be well worth the amount I do find here.

FYI...Although many are hardly "Classic"...This is my CwH list I found over the weekend...I bot ICOC and GSOL off of it this morn...I'm down a few cents on ICOC...But up over a buck on GSOL(Takes a little bit of an imagination to see the pattern on GSOL though)...Most of them that I trade are short term in the handle phase as it reverses up...But I like B/O's too when I'm right on time...Best, Doug
