LOL !

They say that the true gift of a great artist is knowing when to stop painting !

Sadly, I haven't learned WHEN to "stop painting" !

Just seeing these additions would be valuable:

* Gaps

* One Day Reversals

* Shark-32 (this is a tweak of the "Shark" that is currently included)

* ROC(2) Divergence

This is my current rendition of the Range Contraction/Expansion Filter.

This NEWEST Range Contraction/Expansion Filter, with a few NEW patterns added, NOW has...count'em...13...that's THIRTEEN different Contraction/Expansion patterns ! LOL

Actually, some of the "scanned for patterns"...Gaps, Dojis, ODRs (one day reversals) and ROC Divergence...are NOT true "Contraction/Expansion" Patterns...but I have included them into the mix of 13 "patterns".

I realize this scan will be practically useless to most who read this...and that is why I have been reluctant to even post it.

I knocked around the idea of trying to post a sort of..."how to" guide along with it...but...never really found the time OR the inclination.

So...here it is !

If anyone has questions...feel free to ask them...I will try to answer them as time permits.

Lastly, if you ARE NOT a premium StockFetcher sub...you prolly WON'T be able to see ALL the columns that the filter displays. I believe...counting the default columns...there are a total of 35 columns displayed !!! fwiw

ENJOY !!!

I personally have a Watch List that I scan...every day !

I applied this filter HERE...to scan the NASDAQ 100 (for illustrative purposes only) !

dear alf44,

many thanks for posting this. In my saved filters I simply renamed this "alfworkofart," then realized the pun ;-).

I have every excuse now to get the new 30" monitor I've been lusting after. On a more serious note, this is really a tremendous undertaking and what SF is all about.

On the rare chance that anyone actually cares, I have made some changes to this "filter"...both in the way I "approach" AND "apply" it.

I have always intended it to be...and...have always tried to use it more as...a Daily Trading Worksheet. One that I work from every night after the Markets close and it updates...and one I have up on my screen that I can refer to the next trading day.

For ME...it has never been purely a scan or filter in the normal sense. I have always applied it to a small watchlist of stocks and NOT to the entire stock universe...and...in a continuing effort to keep things simple, that watchlist has become smaller and smaller...currently just 25 stocks. That said, the way the "filter" was originally designed...it DID filter out those stocks (in the watchlist) that did NOT display any of the 13 patterns that were at the heart of the filter. Since the "filter/worksheet" also conveys lots of other useful information, in addition to the 13 scanned for patterns, I decided that rather than have it filter out some stocks (and valuable info about those stocks as well)...I would instead have it NOT filter out ANY of the stocks in the watchlist. By doing this it becomes a TRUE worksheet...one that displays ALL the stocks...AND...all the information I like to see about each and every stock in the watchlist.

This is a pretty significant change in approach and application and it works so much better for my nightly homework and routine. I can now run the filter...assess the column info of EVERY stock for trend, momentum, volatility, contraction/expansion patterns, ROC pivots, daily pivots...etc...

...AND...

...I've also changed the 20 day High/Low portion of the filter...and in the process...ADDED 3 NEW features. These are great additions and are proving to be potentially profitable. At a glance, I can see when a stock has made a number of :

* Consecutive UP/DOWN Closes

* Consecutive UP/DOWN Lows

* Consecutive UP/DOWN Highs

The 20 day High/Low check NOW is consolidated into one column (the previous rendition had two separate columns) that shows if a 20 day High OR 20 day Low was made. Then...a quick glance at the Consecutive UP/DOWN Lows and Highs columns indicates whether it was a 20 day High or 20 day Low that was made.

Example:

If there is a "1" in the 20 day High/Low column I know that the stock has made EITHER a 20 day High or Low.

Then...

...if the Consecutive UP/DOWN Highs column is showing positive numbers...I know that a 20 day High has been made.

...or...

...if the Consecutive UP/DOWN Lows column is showing negative numbers...I know that a 20 day Low has been made.

I like looking at these 20 day Highs and Lows for possible indications of breakouts OR reversals.

The idea behind "Consecutive UP/DOWN Closes, Lows and Highs" was borrowed from Larry Connors. Here I'm looking for stocks that have closed DOWN (or made lower lows) for 3, 4, 5 or more days and are in uptrends...OR...that have closed UP (or made higher highs) 3, 4, 5 or more days and are in downtrends.

These things...often combined with some of the other patterns in the "worksheet" can point to some nice trade setups. When these setups do develop you are "buying weakness (LONG) in an uptrend"...and..."selling strength (SHORT) in a downtrend" ! That's a good way to trade. imo

That's all for now...here's the NEWEST NEW rendition of the...

I applied the "filter" HERE...to scan the NASDAQ 100 (for illustrative purposes only) !

Alf44, thank you very much for sharing this carefully annotated "work of art".

When you review the filter results, do you start with MyRoc and ADX(12) first? or how do you approach it?

hi alf44,

I DID get my 30" Dell just to see the results of your filter!! I didn't think it would make such a difference, but wowsa!

This is the equivalent of a Manhattan 4-star French restaurant meal being fed to a pauper, so I will partake of it gently, but many thanks again for a fantastic contribution.

Why can't we have a "sticky" panel here on SF (like on other sites) where we can have a bunch of valuable posts at the very top of the forum lists? This would save a lot of time, and can help newbies and pros alike.

The dynamics of price action that you've introduced me too are extraordinarily important, and they expand what a filter is capable of. Experienced chart readers can distinguish areas of accumulation/distribution and the accompanying range contraction, which occur before eventual expansion. This filter helps me to quantitatively "see" this.

Many filters could be improved IMO by a subtle appreciation of these dynamics, as (for example) simply witnessing an increase in volume may not do justice to what's on the chart.
