Now it's getting fun...

Column HM100 is the how many times high minus middle has been over $1 in the past 100 trading sessions.

Column HM050 is the how many times high minus middle has been over $.50 in the past 100 trading sessions.

Column ML100 is the how many times middle minus low has been over $1 in the past 100 trading sessions.

Column ML050 is the how many times middle minus low has been over $.50 in the past 100 trading sessions.

This can give you a clue as to which way to enter the trade.

For some, this may just be more BELLS AND WHISTLES but for others, it's like finding a patch of ripe fruit just waiting to be picked!!

MAY ALL YOUR FILLS BE COMPLETE.

Rumpled...nice work BUT...

...why not just use the Daily Pivot ?

The Pivot (PP)...is basicallly the "middle of the range" of the previous days price action. (PP = H + L + C / 3)

In fact, there's no need to even do the calculation yourself as SF offers PP as a scanning criteria.

Works for me !

Why all the xtra code to arrive at virtually the same place ?

My original work with the middle was for FOREX.

But I wanted to see if it worked for equities as well. Usually, if a system/strategy is "robust" then it works across markets.

The Pivot, PP is NOT the same as the middle. Close but usually not the same.

Let's see how big the difference is:

Fetcher[
set{MidLx1, high 1 day ago + low 1 day ago }
set{Middle, MidLx1 / 2}
set{PPMID, PP - Middle}
set{xRange, high 1 day ago - low 1 day ago }

and add column PPMID
and add column PP
and add column Middle

and close above 20
and xrange above 1

and volume > 1000000
and average volume(5) > 1000000
and average volume(30) > 1000000

/* sort criteria */

and sort column 5 descending

and market is nasdaq
]



There seems to be a big enough of a difference to winners into losers. What I mean by that is, if I am going long and let the price pass the middle while waiting on it to get to PP, I miss out on all that profit. If the price is below PP, then PP is resistance. When the middle is below PP, then entering at that time should yield a nice scalp as the buyers test resistance.

Remember, I used PP in my GRIDIRON STRATEGY. So I have nothing against using PP.

I just happened to see a directional bias using the middle with the EURUSD and I wanted to test it.

Now I have to convert all the SF code I wrote to TradeStation EL so I can test it out on FOREX.

I understand the reason for your question and I hope I have answered it.

I added another column:

and add column CLxMid 1 day ago

I will look at this when CLxMid = 1 or = -1 to see how many days the previous trend lasted:

Fetcher[
/* Middle of the Range Filter Display - Trend Reversal */

From the chart it looks like when CLxMid is 4 or more the stocks really pop:

Fetcher[

Note: When you look at date offset is 1, if the stock didn't cross above the middle, you would NOT have entered the trade.

Lot's of green here.

Hola from Mexico!

While relaxing on the beach, I thought of a refinement to the display.

The HiEnt column displays the potential profit from the best possible long entry to the high of the day. If the price was always above the middle then the low would be the best possible entry. If the price was below the middle and crossed above the middle then the middle would be the entry trigger price.

The LoEnt column displays the potential profit from the best possible short entry to the low of the day.

When looking at the performance column remember that RED is profit for the shorts.

Adios.

It doesn't seem to make much difference if you trade the extreme trend or the trend reversal... the MIDDLE gives a profitable directional entry signal.

Has anyone been trading this filter?

I have written a middle trade indicator for TradeStation and it is unreal how profitable this is.

I use it to scalp all day long.

It is very simple:

1) calculate the previous day's midpoint (high + low)/2

2) if current price above middle, look for long entries. If current price below, look for short entries.

This is basically trading with the trend.

Today, nothing but shorts on AAPL. Just short the rallys.

Had you just shorted AAPL at the open, you could have covered at $.50+
