Ok. To ensure I understood what to do and importantly when here is my summary:

1) Ran Kevin's filter today morning:
2) Picked those which had a % of gaps filled over 0.65
3) Got ELGX, RUE, SNBC, RYL, and NKTR
4) Set limit price for each with my broker
5) All of them triggered

+++++++++++++++

NO - run the filter OVER THE WEEKEND. Only look at stocks where gapdown is greater than 5 over the last 80 weeks, and pct_gapfill is 0.7 or higher.

You should have had NWY on that list - currently up about 6% from the open today.

Set up a watchlist on Yahoo or Google finance. Even better if you have a real-time quote service. On Monday, look for stocks that gap down 2% or more. These are the BUY stocks.

I would not advocate setting up limit order on every possible candidate. Rather I would look and see if those which gapped down are still at or below the open price, and set a limit order then at whatever makes sense (maybe 1 cent below the open).

The set a profit stop at the previous Friday close.

Done.

NWY had gapfill statistics of 0.62. I thought you only considered above 0.69?

look back to last friday's close - the stats were 0.71. This is why one needs to run the screener each weekend.

**************
Indeed I checked the filter stats for today. But I also found out what went wrong: I fed Friday's results into Garsworld's Powerscan, but that does not consider stocks with an average volume below 400K. Therefore it did not trigger NWY.

And on the short end of the filter, KEG just filled it's 4.32 % gap up. That leaves SWC, FUL and MAKO. (and possible other candidates with avg volume below 400K)

Caution - I did not post a short version of the revised filter. The reason - none of the optimized systems were profitable over the 11 year test period.

Trade that approach at your own risk.

Kevin I do not see NWY on the list when I run the filter with date offset to Friday. Would you know why?

I looked back a couple of months using the mirror version of the adjusted filter posted on page 3, and actually results looked better than the long version. There were however a couple of stocks that went up 50 to 60 % during the week drawing down overall results. I would be using a stoploss when trading the short version.

MAKO is now 5 cts from filling its 3.79 %gapup

Kevin, from your backtest from sept 13 2011 until jan 13 2012

Trade Statistics
There were 11 total stocks entered. Of those, 11 or 100.00% were complete and or 0.00% were open.
Of the 11 completed trades, 9 trades or 81.82% resulted in a net gain.


If I run the filter on the bottom of page 3 it has already over 11 trades after looking back 4 Fridays. Can you figure out where this difference comes from?


btw, MAKO filled the weekly gap up today in the unauthorized short version of the filter.
