This filter will display the middle of the previous day's range.

Use this number for current day trading.

Add this display to your own filters.

Yes, this filter returns lots of stocks because it's a display.

Use your own price/volume criteria to narrow the selections down.

Simple trading strategy: if the stock opens above it's midpoint, go long, if it opens below go short.

Alternative trading strategy: wait for the price to cross the midpoint and trade in the direction of the cross.

Perhaps someone can backtest these two trading strategies.

I was working on a FOREX strategy and discovered something...

If you calculate the midpoint of the previous day's High and Low and use that as a crossover, you almost always make money going in the direction of the cross.

See for yourself!

The selection line HiMid above 0 means the price was above the midpoint.

Now this is NOT the filter to be used to pick tomorrow's trades.

This filter just shows you how much you can make if you trade the midpoint crossover.

Nice work!

Added a plot line to your first filter. Quickly looking at even one symbol chart shows that this has merit.

This is something to watch for.

Nice find TRO.

StockTrader aren't you making enough money already?

LOL!!

You'll have to see what I have done with this on TradeStation.

One thing to note is that sometimes, the price opens above the midpoint and keeps heading north or the price opens below the midpoint and keeps heading south.

Of course, sometimes the opposite happens - the price heads towards the midpoint instead of away from it.

Always remember and never forget: ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!

The trick is to find stocks where the statistics are skewed one way or the other and trade accordingly.

What...never enough green! :)

I only dream about Tradestation. At this point I've not found a way to justify it based on how expensive thousands of shares cost when trading dollar stocks.
Some day.....

Thanks for the range comments. This looks like another very good trading tool.
I will mentally apply it to The Next NTRI filter.
There is some small correlation that after the range criteria is met, the following day "can" move in the same direction.

Anything can happen is so very true. Thanks for pounding this in our brains, as the market is one of the most random things I've ever seen.

I have an account at www.izone.com that I use for the NTRI type stocks.

TRADESTATION is free if you trade at least 25,000 shares roundtrip once a month.

Yes, the commissions "hurt" but the platform is worth it.

Some people just buy 25,000 shares and sell them for .02 more to cover the commission and get the platform for free. There's always a way to outfox the bigboys...lol

Then you can use TradeStation to monitor the market and trade on Izone or whereever.

It's a WIN/WIN.

Not to mention, you'll get to use the TradeStation indicators that I write.

See you there!!

Many traders have wanted a filter for swing trading.

Perhaps this one will work for you.

Notice the profit potential in the himid (High minus previous day's middle).

It looks like when a stock is above the previous day's middle, you want to look for long entries.

This filter tweaked for scalping NASDAQ Big Boy stocks.

You can change that selection criteria.

Notice this filter DOES NOT INDICATORS for selection - just price, price position and volume.

A variation... finds stocks where the high is above the middle and the low is below the middle. Should be crossover candidates.

Looking at the himid and midlo columns, you can see how much you culd have scalped off of the crossovers.

Column CLxMid is the number of days the close has been above(+) or below(-) the middle since the last crossover.

Column MaxCxM is the maximum value for CLxMid over the last 19 weeks ( I used 19 weeks to match the current Next NTRI filter ). You can use this to determine if an uptrend is near the end.

Column MinCxM is the minimum value for CLxMid over the last 19 weeks ( I used 19 weeks to match the current Next NTRI filter ). You can use this to determine if a downtrend is near the end.

Column CMDiff is the close minus the middle.

Notice when CLxMid is greater than one how much CMDIFF is. That's profit potential. Swingtraders use this with your other favorite trend/momentum indicators to decide how long to stay in the trade. Daytraders use this to just print $20s and $100s every day.

You can use these columns to select stocks for entry/exit, too. When CLxMid is 1 or -1, you have a fresh crossover candidate. Once again, use your favorite indicators to confirm trade direction.
