My attempt at a screen using the Turtle method based on the book "Way of the Turtle" written by Curtis Faith.

Made an ajustment to reflect only only new 55 day highs. This change reduces the amount of candidates for trading.

Is this a filter for short trading? Using the default back testing setup I got a 59% of the time loss.

Turtle trading is a long term trading method. It is based on the premise that you will enter more losing trades than winning ones. One must follow the stop loss exits religiously.

Chetron,

Could you kindly walk through how to interpret the output of this filter?

Thanks very much in advance.

I just finished reading Faith's book, so I'm very familiar with the Turtle rules (and thus very interested in this filter). I'm having trouble intrepreting the results of the filter as compared to the rules.

the my thoughts filter, uses the check variables, incorrectly, to pull up short and long opportunities so i could put in my orders, if i were to ever use this filter, for the next day anticipating the 55 day high break, since my windows of time for trading are restricted. where SAFeTRADE uses the actual break for his output which i would use if i were a full time trader.

the all the turtle you can eat filter is the same as SAFeTRADE, except that i added the 55 day low for shorts.
