Congrats stocktrader. Your'e a generous person. There was a thread "watchlist or anything that moves?" I am interested if you were always in this small watchlist group or was this thread a beginning to a change of methods?

I think it is interesting (for me anyway) to see what stocks this screen might have turned up; 12/01/2004 through 5/01/05. This time period was the last relatively steep downturn of qqqq's. By, using this "next ntri" criteria and Cegis' backtest trick it is clear that even during this 100 day period a good 20 or so "movers" could be found and traded. At least by you that is !

Fetcher[set{rtn1,price / price 100 days ago}
set{rtn2,rtn1 - 1}
set{rtn,rtn2 * 100}

*/filter goes here*/
price 100 days ago is between 1 and 20 and avg vol(90) > 300000

add column rtn
and rtn > 0
and sort column 5 descending
offset 5/1/2005

Thanks, but I was not part of that thread/group.

I see many good plays in your filter. Really got me excited to see some of them. You're right, many movers.

One reason I like the Next NTRI filter is that it has "movers" as you said.

I call this my popcorn filter. A group of stocks (Little kernals of corn) that are heating up and pop. Every day if I can get one or two that pop, this is good. For me trading is a function of time. In the past, I've been a long term holder of stocks (1+ year hold) just find out that I get 20% gain on the portfolio for the year. Although 20% is good in terms of banks, always could be better :)

Watching OLAB today for a potential short.......pretty scary!

Hello all new here to the forum just was wondering is there a good filter here the would indicate stocks that would be good for shorting. If the trends filter is it what do we look for in the filter that would indicate a particular stock would be good to short.

The Next NTRI filter will work. Watch the WARM display.

Shorted LNUX today, which is in the filter.

Done for the day with a measly $650, in a bloody market yet.

Yes, I keep messing with TRO's nice work.

Here's my hacked version for shorting.
Remember, the filter has to be "Traded" None of these are blind picks where one just buys them and makes money.

With 3k it makes it very difficult to make money when considering the broker fee. Think about diversification and longer term holds. Take a look at TRO's original filter, it is pretty slick.

Thank you for taking the time to share your trading technique. If I understand, you place the stocks from the filter into a watch list monitor them after the open to find the ones which appear to be moving with the market and scale in if you are right. Is this correct?

That's correct on the filter/watch list. I don't scale in/out all the time, but most. (it increases the broker fee...)

Human behavior is such that unless we have "real" money invested, our attention will be less. I typically go into a position with around $10k. If things look like they are going my way, I'll double the position. If things start looking like they are going against me, I'll cut the position in half. Sometimes this will be a knee-jerk reaction, if a stock makes a quick move. It can recover quickly though....the bigdogs jerk us small traders around pretty well sometimes :)
