And another thing I see...

What should you be looking for mostly?

wklyprofit column?
qtrpct?
What is the most important. I am not daytrading thats why I just want to buy a stock and hold it for 5 days

TRO , I just want to know that I am correct.

That means that you can also use the filter for example today and get results for the best gainers(next 5 days)? Or it is only for using in the weekend?

I thought it could be a nice filter if you could make it just for the "next 5 days" which stocks is statistically open over 1% over the next 5 days?

But indeed I tried this filter and it came up with LNN as the first buy. Would you then tell me the first stocks the filter shows would be the best ? or do you have some kind of let the best stocks be on the top :-) ?
=====================

NO.

The date the filter shows must always be FRIDAY because of the way SF calculates the weekly data.

So change the DATE OFFSET to 1 on Monday, 2 on Tuesday, etc...

BEST? That's a matter of opinion.

I choose the ones that have the best stats, best range and most volume.

TRO

It's because when I look at these STATS

Then I see that wkprofitpc and what does ziphi means ? I now big volume is important but what is then the most important?

If I sort the "fivepct" and get it by the highest numbers, then it comes up with RDN and JRCC, but does it means that these stocks would pop more than 5% per week? Can you please be more precise what you mean with choosing the best stats :-)

Thank you TRO :)

I read about ziphi but higher ziphi number means that its a better stock to buy.

Because if these over 5 pct shows you can just choose the stocks which mosly is over 5 percent every week and then gain 5% every week ? Why choose the 1% ? Or am I wrong ?

So many questions.

The best stats for me, are the ones that yield 1% the most. That's the idea, a slow safe trade.

Now some people want to hold for longer than a day.

But I look for a NO BRAINER trade.

This isn't about getting rich quick... It's about growing your portfolio SLOWLY and STEADILY.

Ah I think I know what you mean now..

So if you choosing a stock which grow over 1pct ? then you sort the 1pct column and take the highest numbers of 1pct..

Then you buy monday open and then waiting for it going to 1 pct and then sell it ?

And another question..
If I should use this filter today I would just take the offset to "4" because its thursday today ? or should I use 5 ?

Set date offset so it always reads the previous Friday's date.

Bought ROYL at open. I was intending to place a stop at 2% gain. From the time my order went through it jumped past 2% so I placed my stop at 5%. Sold 28 min later for a 5% gain. I'm very happy with a 5% gain.

(It ran today up over 20% by mid day.)
