For Scott: I just put in a market order on Sunday night (at whatever the open price may be).

For a day when the DOW was down 136 it was a great day. In addition to the ones above that made 2%, you could add in EVC and VIPS & I'm done for the week (I am still in 3 others however). I would suggest that you not try to modify/alter Avery's filter. If you're willing to take 2% you'll be blown away at how the compounding will work after a year.

Should you want to try this, some might be more comfortable with this. If you'd want to wait until 9:45 or 10:00 & see the ones that may have taken a dip, you could put in a limit buy then at whatever the open was......maybe that would suit some of you better.

The closer it gets to the debt ceiling deadline I would think it might be good to just stay out of everything. I probably won't do anything next Monday if the DC clowns haven't agreed on something. Anyone have any thoughts on that?

Do I understand you correctly. You enter up to 20 or 25 stocks that are 80% odds of making 2%.

For Amtmail: when I first started this I was buying the top 5. Now, I'm buying somewhere between 10 and 20...for me it would mostly depend on when their earnings date is for them (this week I bought 10). As for your question about ZHNE? I would assume that when you run this filter on the weekend, you will sort on the 2% column & then you'd see ZHNE as #7 on the list.

For SafeTrade: Somewhere between 10 and 20 as I said above. But, I've convinced myself to do nothing at all for next week unless the government shutdown and the debt ceiling are taken care of some way.

I've been playing with TRO's original long. Changing a couple of things, I get 100%, with a 2% profit goal. I use the high of the Friday stocks and use a buy stop at that high. About half of Fridays's choices never get bought the following week. I checked out the past 3 Fridays, ending with 10/4/13 and got 17 winners, no losers. I wouldn't know how to backtest other than manually. It would be nice if someone knows an easy way to check this back further. One problem with this (isn't there always), a high %age of the stocks that are in the 17 winners are priced between 2 and 5 dollars, so a 2% gain can be between $.04 and $.10. I believe that entering a sell stop for your 2% profit will run into problems with the bid/asked spread. Since your sell stop becomes a market order at the asked price, you might actually end up with a loss instead of a 2% gain. Anybody have any thoughts on this? Then there's commissions and slippage....

That last post is the best example of one of my pet peeves: Did you notice how long it took before someone wanted to make some changes to a filter that can make you a 100% proift in a year as it is? Not long at all.

DUST was a 2% profit today from yesterday's open. Keep 2%'ing along.

But DUST scores 42 out of 52 for a 3.5 % profit target, that is 80 %. I guess one could look at an optimal risk/reward ratio for each individual stock.
