I am surprised as well as chrismnu2003. Results are absolute unreal. Guys, if you get similar backtests you have made an error. Don't be naive. SF calculates Pivot Points incorrectly. If you want to see your real "wins", then use "S1 2 days ago".

By the way...this filter has made some killer the last 3 weeks....although the last week has been dull

I use 15-30 min trade with trix 5,3..full stochs of 8,4,2, and macd of 6,16,4 at

I like the trix 5, it approaches zero, from below...some of these picks just explode.....!!!!!!!!!1

If anyone has similar money management or recommendations...please share them

woodstock, you wrote: "SF calculates Pivot Points incorrectly." Please explain. I got the results that look absolutely unreal with this backtest, and I'm wondering how and why the S1 entry level is being miscalculated to produce amazing results that are incorrect.

Why would using the S1 level 2 days ago produce a correct result if you're looking to enter at the S1 level on the day of the trade?

BTW, I've been trying to find a system to enter and exit one day later and get an average of at least 0.5% gain each day. So far, the best I've done is figured out a few filters that will get about 0.35% per day, by simply entering at the open and exiting at the open the following day. If the ones being discussed in this thread actually work, then obviously they would do way better than the 0.5% gain per day I'm hoping for.

Anybody come up with a system that is better than 0.5% gain per day average, which actually works in reality? Anybody think the ones in this thread have real potential, or just a pipe dream?

SF is right, this is not a bug but a feature:)
It is very simple -
S1 calculates Pivot Point using TOMORROW values, that is you look ahead. Just investigate trades table and you'll believe me :)
0.5% gain for day is wonderful (about 15% month) but
0.5% gain for trade is very risky, commission can bust you.

Woodstock, you're wrong. Try this. Run a backtest with a fairly restrictive filter, using 'open' as your entry price. Limit your buys to no more than 5 per day. Don't limit the maximum number of stocks in your portfolio. Looking at the results, write down the number of total trades made. Then go back and run the same filter, using 'S1' as your entry price, and don't forget to check the 'conditional' box. Note that far fewer trades were made. This is because many times the filtered stock never hits the S1 price. There is always an S1 each and every day, so if it were using tomorrow's price, it would always hit the S1. The fact that the trades are far fewer suggests that this is not the case.

OK. I am wrong. Not tomorrow's prices but 2 days ahead:) Why? I don't know. Let's stop this dispute. Everyone can check my statement using trade's table. I just pointed to the mistake. If you prefer to believe in a miracle it's your choice.

For those who say it can't be done:

I don't use the exact filter that is shown in the thread, but it's very similar, using RSI(2).
