Any thing you can think of?
I am trying to screen for a 5 or 6 day tight range horizontal flag....... My plan , (I cant day trade due to work) is to set up Stop Limit buys for a break out above the range high... small positions with a stop loss below the low of the tight range.

It's pretty easy to find the VMED type chart..some work is involved for you must go do a quick chart on them but the scan is simple and you can build up a nice watchlist after a few need to do date offsets to find them with this example with a 5 day offset,you'll find VMED...I use offsets ranging from 2 up to 10 days to find the charts...

Fetcher[stocks where close is above upper bollinger band(20) and price is between 1 and 15 and volume is greater than 300000
offset is 5

of course use whatever volume and price range suits you...hth

I may start trading this....... I just hate the system based trading mabey Ill mix in a little fund. to weed out the picks and not just trade everyone this thing spits out...........

Stop loss is 5% stop profit is 20% sell at close 2nd day

you get stoped out 46% of the time.......thats hard to swallow if they rack up for a few weeks in a row....

This is if you trade on pure probability 100 balls in a sack start pulling them out one at a time, you may get 25 losers in a row... I guess you need to figure that into your money managment some how........anyone with any experance in mass system trading i would like to hear your take........ anyway don't get too excited its all history now.....

566 / 84 = thats an average 6.7 trades a day so lets use 10.... so for money managment take your starting capital and divide by 5 take that 5th and divide by 10 that should be about what you should use on every did kick the shit out of the S&P.
