Here's an even simpler one:

Fetcher[

symlist(SPY)
stochastics %K(9,1) crossed below stochastics %D(9,1,7)
]



Go long the next day when this happens. Exit is the %K cross back above the %D line.

Since 1/2/2006 there have been 240 trades completed, with 180 (75.00%) being profitable. Average trade lasted 3 days and returned 0.39% after commissions, spread and slippage. Starting with $100,000 on 1/2/2006 you would have a final balance on 7/27/2012 of $247,640.76, assumng full reinvestment of proceeds. That's an annual return of 22.46% or a CAGR of 14.79%.

Now look at using the same crossover to go short:

Fetcher[

symlist(SPY)
stochastics %K(9,1) crossed above stochastics %D(9,1,7)
]



Go short the next day when this happens. Exit is the %K cross back above the %D line.

Since 1/2/2006 there have been 239 trades completed, with 153 (64.02%) being profitable. Average trade lasted 3 days and returned 0.32% after commissions, spread and slippage. Starting with $100,000 on 1/2/2006 you would have a final balance on 7/27/2012 of $212,879.69, assumng full reinvestment of proceeds. That's an annual return of 17.17% or a CAGR of 12.18%.

Just so you can see which side of the trade you are supposed to be in currently, use this:

Fetcher[

symlist(SPY)
set{longposition, count(stochastics %K(9,1) below stochastics %D(9,1,7),1)}
set{shortposition, count(stochastics %K(9,1) above stochastics %D(9,1,7),1)}

add column longposition
add column shortposition
draw stochastics %K(9,1) on plot stochastics %D(9,1,7)
]



Enjoy.

Thanks for the quick responses.Kevin,I have a few questions.Would the long filter you used (spy) have the same percentages if you used (qqq) or (iwo) or (dia) indexes? Also,what would happen percentage wise if you applied it to individual stocks? It also seems like this system works best in a chop market,like the one we're having currently,or possibly just get more signals.Looks like the long system kicks in at very overbought levels and returns it's highest percentages within 2-3 days.Amazing that a system so simple would deliver those kind of percentages.....

This system was identified from an autosearch on ^SPX over the last 6+ years. Stratasearch ran for about a day and looked at more than 600,000 combinations of different indicators and settings. This was one of the more simple and profitable ones that also traded well in the short direction as well.

I don't think it would work as well on QQQ or DIA, but who needs it to? This has you 100% in market on a single highly liquid stock, both long and short as the market dictates, with both sides highly profitable.

Kevin.. It seems counter intuitive, I would think you would go long when the fast indicator crossed above the slow indicator. Help me out here I must be thinking about this wrong.

I've been using this one successfully.

Fetcher[
symlist(tna,fas)

RSI(3) is below 10


draw RSI(3) line at 15
]



I use the MA(5) as an exit point.

Nope? Not a big fan of stops and the way I trade I usually don't need them. With this particular filter I just close with a close above ma(5) right or wrong. Very binary in nature.
