fyi....

i believe having a 5 day slope of a weekly indicator is not a good thing. and it does not automatically adjust as it does in tomb's example.

also watch out when you do an offset on a filter with a slope filtering line in it, i believe stockfetcher only uses current data for slope and line commands.

...see, that's why I told "Dave" to "not worry about what tomb said"...
I wasn't being my usual jerk self...I just knew that it didn't matter.

Zero-in on the Software sector! I mean, there are a TON of stocks that have the daily WILL / RSI divergence set-up. I personally don't like technology stocks, but one cant ignore a whole sector with this set-up!

Also, the Automotive, Regional Banks, Consumer Goods, Rails, and Healthcare. From the looks of it, it would appear the "Dollar" is going to breakout in the next 1-2 days.

Here are some home run plays I'll be looking closely at on Monday...

ACW
RDK
BARE
AVR
NCOC
GSK
TTHI
HNSN
STXS
LULU
UTIW
PAC

All of WSG's filters backtest like cr**. ;)

I think they all contain elements of method and interpretation that are beyond the mechanical capacity of the backtesting technology. As a result, I pretty much have to rely on offsetting the filters and just going back and looking at countless examples and their setups to see how they work - that's the only way to do better than -28%, I think.

"Backtest?"...are you kidding me? These are designed for 2-3 day pops only! Have you not read ANYTHING about me? Then you go to the next one, and the next....etc. Have you not noticed how volatile this market has been for the last several months?

So tell me...with you being a "greybeard", you must me down well over 20% on the year huh? Why in hell would someone backtest a successful 2-3 day filter? You backtest nerds crack me up! ROFL

huh? I think that was my point...backtesting doesn't work...was that not clear?

We need obnoxious people like we need a thorn in our buttox. Some people read, then think, then respond. Some read, respond, then apologize for not thinking first. You responded very well Furious Thug to this situation.
