I saw a discussion on a simple trading system in a trading magazine recently. I used it and made a nice little 2 day trade profit in SIRI. (Bought at 2.98, sold at 3.29)

Here's the formula: If the stock was down 2% (close to close) 2 days ago, but it went up 4% (close to close) one day ago, buy and hold for 2 days, close at your discretion.

I found and "eyeballed" SIRI using Stockcharts.com, and used a calculator to figure the percentages and I had some beginner's luck. I hope to throw in some RSI filters to assist lowering the entry risk one of these days.

I'd like to use Stockfetcher to program the formula to produce a number of stocks to watch but I just don't know how to do so in limited time.

I'd appreciate some assistance and I won't be a bother again until I find something similar and run to one of this board's experts with the basics.

Thanks!

I changed the price of your filter to between 1 and 10 then ran your filter. The first hit was UGHO it went down Friday but up 36.36% today, I think he is looking for 4% increase 1 day ago.

Quote....stock was down 2% (close to close) 2 days ago, but it went up 4% (close to close) one day ago

Thanks to both of you for your time and effort on my behalf! You initial guidance will greatly assist me in writing additional filters which I will share after proper DD and testing, of course.
