@duke56468

Filter: PP14 and PP28

pivot point = heard about them and decided to try playing

PP low = high didn't work so tried the opposite

14/28 = visually inspected filter results and tried different combos (prefer symmetry .. so use double) my usual pattern

pp equals pp 28 = improved results (remember below, equal, over are the three possibilities)
The old saying about the wall: go through, over or under, around

encapsulating PP low/open below and close/high above = borrowed from http://filteringwallstreet.blogspot.com/ (I used PP instead of Moving Average)

volume = i would raise to over 100,000 (would change to trade this filter)

close = I personally don't trade below $1

set statements = looking for the extra confidence that a continuig up is going to occur before long position
