Looking for everyones most consistent 1% gain filter----actually I need the most consistent 2.6% gain filter.

Thats my 1.6% commission + 1% gain

IF YOU CAN AVERAGE A 1% GAIN EVERY THREE DAYS, IT TAKES A $1000 ACCOUNT TO A $1000000 ACCOUNT IN 8.25 YEARS !!!

Here is the breakdown on a $1000 account:

1% every day................................................2.75 years to $1,000,000
every 2 days.................................................5.51
every 3 days.................................................8.25
every 4 days.................................................11.0
every week...................................................13.7
every month.................................................55.1

Let's put it this way,to get even 1% per month,which equates to 12% a year from the market on a consistent basis,you would be getting a better return than the S&P index.Did you know that 98% of the best money managers on earth can't beat that average.......

I'm going to agree with John,MTC filter works,also Fade The Gap is another good one if you're into day trading...

++++++++++++

This is not possible on a continuous basis, regardless of what you might think.

100x gain in 8.25 years. Compare that to the SP500 over the same period. If it were easy to do, everyone would be doing it by now.

I know that the odds are against it, but small consistent gains over time adds up. Even 1% a week is a very lofty goal---but I think that it is possible.


I am just looking for the most consistent way to net 1%---8 years or 18---I've got the time.

I highly recomend trading the F's (FAZ/FAS).

Tons of volume, and they tend to span 2-5% movements each and every day, but you have to be able to pick indicators.

One is a bear ETF (FAS), the other bear (FAZ), so they are continually moving against each other. One will be up, one will be down each and every day.

The funds have been acting extremly weird the last week, so trading has been light... but so far today:
symbol buy sell

FAS 30.64 31.5 2.81%
FAZ 12.6 13.25 5.16%

and currently back in FAZ @ 13.46


FAS Just had a 3-1 split so that has really helped percentage leverage out a lot. Last week the price was > 100 bucks share, now it's 30.
