Hi Aktienfahnder:

just do the proper research before you invest your hard earned money and do not rely on the SF backtest alone. It gives only a rough estimate of the viability of a strategy. I routinely test all my strategies with AMIBROKER or sometimes with EXCEL. AMIBROKER is a great program by the way, much closer to real market conditions and extremely versatile.
My strategy is swing trading along the the lines of Rump (thanks Rump) with a few bells and whistles of my own, but I try to stay away from Pennies and illiquid stocks.

>>leaddog, I haven't seen one of your posts in a while. Thanks, though, I've tweaked one of your filters for much success. I found it listed in the "filters you actually trade" thread.<<

I am in and out checking new ideas. I am glad you found it to work for you. As you may know it is based on the TRO’s filters and ideas he has shared with us here.

May your limit order be filled, ;-)

i wonder if some of you are more interested in creating filters/competitions and then like than actually trading for real? Seems so.

competitions, no.
designing filters, yes.


Just to add to your thought, I wonder how many here are current or ex- engineers? (I am) This question was asked on another trading forum, and the response was humorous. So many engineers trying to become stock traders.

This has always gotten in my way. I like designing and analyzing. I have a hard time sticking to a winning system. I'm always trying to improve, so I end up jumping around too much. Discipline. Easy to say, hard to do.
