This filter was posted (I forget by whom) and it was indicated that it was a good short filter. Every time I take a look at it...it would produce excellent results for an actual long filter. Is there something wrong with this filter for a short?

Close is near upper Bollinger Bands(20,2)
close is below open
and price is above 5
MACD Histogram(4,8)has been decreasing 1-day
MACD Histogram(4,8)1-day ago had been increasing
2-day slope of MA(20)is above 0
MA(20)is more than 2% below close
average volume(90)is above 100000


Having used this filter for longs for the past five days (6/25/07) would have been great... for longs. The results are very good. But, i want it short.

I apologize, I don't know how to make them clickable.

Hello Deejal...don't know about your filter but all you need to do to make them clickable is to put the the word fetcher followed by a bracket before your first line of code. Example...fetcher]

Then simply put a bracket immediately following your last line of code. example...]

Here's your code

Fetcher[Close is near upper Bollinger Bands(20,2)
close is below open
and price is above 5
MACD Histogram(4,8)has been decreasing 1-day
MACD Histogram(4,8)1-day ago had been increasing
2-day slope of MA(20)is above 0
MA(20)is more than 2% below close
average volume(90)is above 100000

Trying to front-run the stock thinking that it will drop just because it hit the upper Bollinger band is really not a wise idea. Depending on its width, if the slope of the Bollinger is up, it will more often continue going up rather than reverse. A good gauge to use in analyzing this is to overlay the Bollinger with a Keltner channel of smaller time period (I use the 7-period Keltner).
