I use the bbands as a setup for my option trades, a couple of guys helped me out with setting up a screen thats doing pretty much the same thing you are looking for take a look at the (help/sos/help) post. I still need to figure out how to re-word whats in that bullish screen for a bearish one also. do me a favor and post the screen (if you havent already done so) so I can try and fine tune my stuff a bit more... I think for me its been working out great but trying to key in on those types of price patterns has been difficult(until stockfetcher that is) my screenbuilding skills are in their infancy. Anyway thanks for sharing.

NO, Muddy didn't short... I said he bought the breakouts.

Somewhere I think I posted an UPPER BOLLINGER PIERCED BY WHITE CANDLE filter.

Where can one find the muddy filter that people are talking about in this post??? It seems very interesting.

To the RumpledOne....your 3/23/2006 post refers to a "UPPER BOLLINGER PIERCED BY WHITE CANDLE" filter. I have searched extensively for this filter even using your suggestion that it might be in a TxTrapper post but have not yet found it. Would you be kind enough to point me in the right direction?

I'm sure many of us have used this system in one form or another in different market conditions over the years. I was just wondering if anyone has made serious money doing so, or lost their life savings, or are just paper trading. Share your story! I look forward to finding out how this system really fairs in the market.

Uhmm, here's a variation on the theme of Muddy's BB setup:

count(upper bollinger band(17) above upper bollinger band(17) 1 day ago,20) above 10
price touched lower keltner band(7)
set{hammer,count(close above open,1) * count(open above Day Position(0.50,1),1)}
hammer above 0

price above 5
avgvol(17) above 300000

draw Keltner band(7)
do not draw hammer
chart-time is 6 months

P.S. In my mind, BB is nearly worthless by itself. Once you couple it with the Keltner channel, however, it becomes a different breed.

Muddy Combined with RSI2 (and a couple mods from myself)...make consistent profits. July and August were rough and I seldom used them those two months.

For the one's I have chosen, they have performed very well. I would not use the scan results for automated trades though. Also, I don't touch anything that does less than a million shares a day, so that alone eliminates quite a few. Backtests are tough because the "pop" may be large, but short lived. Many times the "pop" is itraday only then it closes with a small gain then dies the next day. Just my $.02
