for your information guys it seems a lot of stocks went up triple digits appearing 60 days ago. I think that was the beg. of the bull. I dont think it was this filter because there are several other filters that produced these same stocks. Proof is in the pudding. I would like a filter that produces good results in a bear market and awsome results in a bull market. The only way to find this is using either the bollinger bands or the volume and price. Volume and Price are the only true indicators. Money Flow helps but those usually go up with price and volume. Just use price and volume. For instance stocks that have reached new 30 day highs etc. Look for stocks that produce 30 day highs and the volume has increased a lot. That means there is a lot of buying in the stock. Its obviously hot. You dont need a filter for that. Just keep your losses short and make your gains big.

I don't understand why people use date offset when it can be changed at anytime after SF displays initial results.

One reason to use DATE OFFSET is you might not want stocks from the last trading session.

Another reason is to test ideas.

Saves a few mouse clicks :)

HTH.

TRO,

I am confused regarding this filter. Are you assuming that if a stock gained +20% during the last four weeks, it will continue to gain during the coming weeks? It seems to me that by using your first line of this filter, you will only get stocks that increased by at least +20% during the last 4 weeks regardless of the remaining lines of the filter. Thus, it becomes a self-fulling prophesy! You only get stocks that increased by at least 20% or more.

What am I miss understanding here?

Thanks, Joe

In simpler terms....it's what GRADES a filter! When looking for confirmation.....don't waste your time "backtesting it....just "offset" it. And when you see "green"....you KNOW you have a winner! You know....like all mine. LOL....
