I know that there are some of you that can't or don't daytrade. You want to enter a trade and ride it for more than a day.

The TRO STAT SCAN for SWING TRADERS shows which stocks move the most STATISTICALLY during the week.

The reason you can only use this on Saturday and Sunday ( or late Friday night and before the market open on Monday ) is because that is the only time the weekly numbers work properly.

column halfpct is the number of times the weekly high minus the weekly open is over 0.5% for the last 52 weeks.

column onepct is the number of times the weekly high minus the weekly open is over 1% for the last 52 weeks.

column twopct is the number of times the weekly high minus the weekly open is over 2% for the last 52 weeks.

column fivepct is the number of times the weekly high minus the weekly open is over 5% for the last 52 weeks.

column ziphi is the number of times the weekly high minus the weekly open is less than 10 cents for the last 52 weeks.

column wkProfitPct is the most recents weeks profit percent: 100 * ( weekly high minus the weekly open ) / weekly open.

What this tells me is that you can buy at Monday's open, set a take profit of 1% and grow your account week after week. Of course, you can make more if you want to take a more active role in trading.



Some of you can't MILK THE COW because you have jobs that prevent you from trading all day.

Some of you are investors and don't want to day trade.

This filter use the same premise as MILK THE COWS:

"THE WEEKLY HIGH IS USUALLY HIGHER THAN THE WEEKLY OPEN AND THE WEEKLY LOW IS USUALLY WEEKLY LOWER. SO IF I BUY AT/NEAR THE WEEKLY OPEN, AT/NEAR THE WEEKLY OPEN PRICE, I CAN SELL FOR A PROFIT BEFORE THE WEEK IS OVER."

Would you be satisfied with a 1% return per week?

That's 52% WITHOUT compounding!!

By the way, you can use this filter during the week, just set the date offset so it shows results for the past Friday.

The SHORT VERSION follows for the PLUNGERS out there.

I noticed a few of the RUN FOREST, RUN stocks appeared on the CROCK POT list.

I never thought about using them as "easy money" swing trades.

Have to LOVE STATISTICS!!

Which stock?

Look at the stocks that are in your price range.

Pick the ones with the most volume and that give up 1% or more per week at least 48 weeks out of the last 52.

I would buy the top 3 or 5. Just divide your account evenly.

Buy at Monday's open and then enter your 1% SELL LIMIT orders.

Thanks TRO,
I am only starting with $1000. So with a round trip fee of $14 I must go for 2% or greater. I am picking SCA at a sell order of %5.
Any advise?

Got to love the 52 1% stocks out of 52 weeks. I like those odds.

Just to clarify, is the "onepct" column the weekly count out of 52 that the stock dropped 1% from weekly open?

For example, monday at open stock xyz is at 100. Sell short. Set a buy to cvr limit order at 99. I am I looking at this right.

Stjoe,

Why are you paying so much for your trades. You can trade these days for .004/share thats .40 cents for 100 shares and 4 dollars per thousand, $14 seems like alot of money for 100 share trades. You can also get 7 to 10:1 leverage, are you an active trader?

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The onepct column is the number of weeks out of 52 the stock GAINED 1% or more.

set{woplo, weekly open - weekly low }
set{Short_Profit, woplo / weekly open }
set{wkProfitPct, 100 * Short_Profit }
