F O RREST GUMP GOES TO HEAVEN.

The day finally arrived. Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven.

He is at the Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter himself. However, the gates are closed,
and Forrest approaches the gatekeeper.

St. Peter said, 'Well, Forrest,
it is certainly good to see you. We have heard a lot about you. I must
tell you, though, that the place is filling up fast, and we have been administering
an entrance examination for everyone. The test is short, but you have to
pass it before you can get into Heaven.'

Forrest responds, 'It sure is
good to be here, St. Peter, sir. But nobody ever told me about any entrance
exam. I sure hope that the test ain't too hard.
Life was a big enough test as it was.'

St. Peter continued, 'Yes, I
know, Forrest, but the test is only three questions.


First:
What two days of the week begin with the letter T?
Second:
How many seconds are there in a year?
Third:
What is God's first name?'

Forrest leaves to think the questions
over. He returns the next day and sees St. Peter, who waves him up, and
says, 'Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over,
tell me your answers'

Forrest replied, 'Well, the
first one -- which two days in the week begins with the letter 'T'?
Shucks, that one is easy. That would be Today and Tomorrow.'

The Saint's eyes opened wide and
he exclaimed, 'Forrest, that is not what I was thinking, but you do
have a point, and I guess I did not specify, so I will give you credit
for that answer. How about the next one?' asked St. Peter.

'How many seconds in a year?
Now that one is harder,' replied Forrest, but I thunk and thunk about
that, and I guess the only answer can be twelve.'

Astounded, St. Peter said, 'Twelve?
Twelve? Forrest, how in Heaven's name could you come up with twelve seconds
in a year?'

Forrest replied, 'Shucks, there's
got to be twelve: January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd... '

'Hold it,' interrupts St.
Peter. 'I see where you are going with this, and I see your point,
though that was not quite what I had in mind....but I will have to give
you credit for that one, too. Let us go on with the third and final question.
Can you tell me God's first name'?

'Sure,' Forrest replied,
'it's Andy.'

'Andy?' exclaimed an exasperated
and frustrated St Peter.

'Ok, I can understand how you
came up with your answers to my first two questions, but just how in the
world did you come up with the name Andy as the first name of God?'

'Shucks, that was the easiest
one of all,' Forrest replied. 'I learnt it from the song, 'ANDY
WALKS WITH ME, ANDY TALKS WITH ME, ANDY TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN.'

St. Peter opened the Pearly Gates,
and said:
'RUN Forrest, RUN.'



Give me a sense of humor, Lord.
Give me the ability to understand a clean joke,
To get some humor out of life, And to pass it on to other folks.

TRO,
Thank you for all the great filters/statistics. The whole community appreciates all your hard work and I personally respect all the statistics filters that you have provided. One particular statistics filter I'd like to see created would be the weekly swing trade one you put together, however, with emphasis on the short side instead of going long.

Obviously you can look at the weekly filter you created and sort the list by seeing which stocks have not gained 1/2%,1%,2% consistently over the past 52 weeks and these would most likely be short candidates, but it'd be nice to have a filter to show how often these stocks tend to drop 1/2%,1%,2% etc. from the open. This would allow swing traders more flexibility depending on the market conditions that week and what kind of buy/sell zone(s) the general markets (nasdaq, s&p, etc.) are in. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to create it, but I am unfamiliar with filters concerning inputting statistics. Thanks.

THE PERFECT HEDGE?

Thinking out loud....

What if you had 2 different trading accounts.

You go long stocks in one account and go short the same stocks in another account.

You only trade stocks that hit the 1% mark 48 times or better.

You exit 1/2 your position at 1% and let the other 1/2 ride.

Seems to me there's a way to capture profit and lower the risk.

Just a thought...

THO,
How does one get started using your1% filter with $1000 and $14 round trip fee's?
Go for 2% stops? Wait until I have more capital to get started? IF wait then how much capital?
I am currently using Scottrade.
Thank you.

Do brokers even allow one to open an account with $1,000? I think anyone wanting to start trading needs at least $3,000 to offset commissions. And even with $3,000 you need to be with a broker like MB Trading / Interactive Brokers and use a per share plan so a round trip with securities $30 per share and up only cost $2 round trip. You will lose money with only $1000 with the 1/2% filters, guaranteed. Either you need to wait to get more capital or use a more volatile filter like the traditional run forest run so you can at least be aiming to get at minimal a 5% gain per trade.

===========================================================

You don't!! The 1% filter is for the long term bigger accounts.

If you have $1,000 then you should be trading the ORIGINAL RUN FOREST, RUN STOCKS.

Currently, RDN, ABK, and PMI, can provide you with net 2% or more daily.

You may laugh at 2% of $1,000 being $20 but let's look at what you can do.

If you net $20 on a $4 stock, then next time you can buy 5 more shares. That will put compounding to work for you.

Now, if you trade RFR stocks, sooner or later you will get the coveted 10% or more POP.

Look at what ABK, PMI and RDN did last week.

TRO-
What's your method for zeroing in on the three stocks you mentioned (RND, ABK, and PMI) from the Run Forest Run filter? And, what's your exit strategy that you use for stopping losses and protecting profits?

-----------------------------------------------

I just look at the ones on top.

I look at the volume... don't like thinly traded stocks.

That's all there is. The filter does the work of selecting.

Now, trading... I use the TRAVEL GUIDE.

I like to trade the drop/bounce... I will wait for a drop to the drop target... that's the get ready. I use 30 minute candles... I WAIT FOR GREEN and then enter 1/2 the position. If it goes against me then I can average down and trade my way out. Just ask Chip... we chat on yahoo almost everyday during the market.

I don't use stops. I trade my way out.

I also will buy 1/2 position in the last hour of the day to see if I can catch the pop the next day. If they drop it, I'll add the other 1/2 position and catch the bounce and usually be able to exit with a profit ( sometimes I exit too soon like last week!)
