irishpitbull i tried your filter again and was looking at the first results with PB between 130 and 150. Seems to me that they are already in a heavy upward move. Can you explain again when is a good time to enter a trade?
For example if you look at SUG, when it first broke out, PB was around 100.

Ipaid,

Sug would be a bad candidate because it is in the middle of buyout.

Ebay is ready

Hi Irishpitbull,

Just read this thread. I will try your filter but was wondering what u look for in short interest. How u determine which ones to pick and which to leave. I see Ebay has 0.6 days to cover the shorts and APOL has 4.7. Which one is better as u have picked both. Pls explain your method in a little more detail.

Thanks

Short % and volume are are two great tools to use. But the they wont keep me out of trade. Take AUY for instance, it had a short % of a little over 1. Still ran 6-8%. You have to look for hot sectors. Like that last month healthcare and biotechs have been running.

Where do you get this information about the Short % (number of days to cover the shorts)? Is this in information in SF?

@irishpitbull
I see from your sample charts that in the end you pick stocks that hit a resistance for several days (horizontal consolidation), correct? This is actually what my filter does. So i give it another try to combine the two filters.

I think that is only weakness of this site, not short %. There are a ton sites that you can get that info from. I use the PPT.

I agree would be great to have that info and other fundamentals. Finviz is not bad. there screens are getting better. the bubble thing is really cool.

You should check out http://spydercrusher.com/

He calls it a compression break out its a very same looking pattern, but also uses overall market timing to take trades.. only gong long with the market.

Check youtube or chartly for his vids..
