Forgot to add this a backtesting area.

Dave - this requires you go long one and short the other. What I was thinking was that you go place a long bet on whichever stock goes up more than X% from the open, knowing that since they are inversely related only one will do this.

Sorry Kevin. Your idea makes more sense. If each of us would have bought $5,000 of Dust and $5,000 of Nugt at the open Monday morning (also with a 3% trailing stop) I'm pretty sure on Monday the 3% trailing stop for Dust would have been hit. Nugt would have made a high of 18% yesterday and then today I assume the trailing stop would have been triggered at 15%. So we would have had a 15% gain on Nugt and a 3% or so lost on Dust.

Or just buy the one that gains 3% using a set of buy stops. That was the idea from Bartune1, which saves you money.

One could throw in statistics on how many times the stock went to 5, 8 and 10 % after a 3 % move.
And we could call it "Run Forrest, Run"

On a daily time frame, I think this is just a variation of TRO's MTC.

Trigger is 3% above the open.
Counts how many times you achieve 0.25%-3% above the trigger

set{hiop,high - open}
set{hioppct,hiop / open}
set{trigger,0.03} /*Trigger - Stock Up 3% from open*/
set{trigger1,1 + trigger}
set{triggervalue,trigger1 * open}
set{gain0.25%,trigger + 0.0025}
set{gain0.5%,trigger + 0.005}
set{gain1.0%,trigger + 0.01}
set{gain1.5%,trigger + 0.015}
set{gain2.0%,trigger + 0.02}
set{gain2.5%,trigger + 0.025}
set{gain3.0%,trigger + 0.03}
set{uptrigger,count(hioppct > trigger,100)}/*Count how many times stock achieves 3% above open*/
set{upgain0.25%,count(hioppct > gain0.25%,100)}/*Count how many times stock achieves 0.25% above trigger*/
set{upgain0.5%,count(hioppct > gain0.5%,100)}/*Count how many times stock achieves 0.5% above trigger*/
set{upgain1.0%,count(hioppct > gain1.0%,100)}/*Count how many times stock achieves 1.0% above trigger*/
set{upgain1.5%,count(hioppct > gain1.5%,100)}/*Count how many times stock achieves 1.5% above trigger*/
set{upgain2.0%,count(hioppct > gain2.0%,100)}/*Count how many times stock achieves 2.0% above trigger*/
set{upgain2.5%,count(hioppct > gain2.5%,100)}/*Count how many times stock achieves 2.5% above trigger*/
set{upgain3.0%,count(hioppct > gain3.0%,100)}/*Count how many times stock achieves 3.0% above trigger*/
add column open
add column uptrigger{trigger3%}

"On a daily time frame, I think this is just a variation of TRO's MTC"


I think TRO said his original "Crock Pot" filter WAS a variation of MTC ! (albeit on a WEEKLY time frame)

I would ALSO say that much/most of what TRO has put forth in these forums (in recent years) ... IS a "variation" of MTC !


I would ALSO say ... there is MUCH to be gleaned from these cleverly coded TRO filters !!!

Not saying anything about the viability of them as standalone trading systems ... personally, I don't care much for them !

But, as clever examples of how to use the Stockfetcher platform in creative and entirely different ways (reports/statistics etc ... rather than merely "scan for stocks") ... to me, that is where TRO deserves a place in the SF Hall of Fame !!!

Just sayin'



Actually, as I "re-read" the post above this one this morning ... I think I misunderstood the "jist" of the post.

alf44 - TRO deserves kudos as this was a variation of his original filter. When I said "just", I suppose it sounded like a minimizing phrase. That was not my intent. He has many great posts.

Kevin, does SS incorporate intraday data or just EOD? So far in my manual backtesting of the 3% buy stop with a 1-2% trailing stop on DUST/NUGT, price crosses the 3% threshold only to quickly reverse back triggering the trailing stop. I've found that once price crosses that 3% threshold, it has a greater tendency to close the day above 3 percent (and in some cases much more than 3%). I'm testing the buy stop with holding to the close now to see if it produces better results. Just want to compare notes to see if anyone else has seen the same?

I was thinking, whether a buy at the Monday's CLOSE instead of the OPEN would be reasonable.

In case of the Monday sell-off at the open, it would give the system better chances to achieve the 2% target, IMO.

I am also looking how to reduce the risk, as one down week for the market could result in a loss of 5-8% on the position, while other stocks could fluctuate from negative 5% to positive 5% intra-week.
