Thenks alf44 and TheRumpledOne, your posts really got me started.
From the amount of activity on the forum I assume you both are full time traders, something I hope to become one day in a near future.
I hope it is ok if I ask you a couple non stockfetcher related question (the stockfetcher questions will come but I want to read through the manual first)

-Do you trade stocks or options ( I don't even know if future / forex symbols are included here )
-Do you limit yourself to sertain stocks and get really got in those, or do you trade broad markets?
-Do you have a one filter that you use for all markets (up and down, high / low volatility)?
-What broker do you use? I have been papertrading with TOS myself..
-If you don't mind me asking, what kind of indicators do you use, or find most reliable.. I see that a RSI filer is quite popular here. (haven't got time to read through all the posts)

I trade stocks and forex


-Do you limit yourself to sertain stocks and get really got in those, or do you trade broad markets?

I only trade the top "cows". See my MILK THE COWS, FADING THE GAP and BUY ZONE threads.



-Do you have a one filter that you use for all markets (up and down, high / low volatility)?

See my FADING THE GAP STATISTICS FILTER for scalping.

See my FINDING THE NEXT NTRI for swing trades.



-What broker do you use? I have been papertrading with TOS myself..

I use MB Trading and TD AMERITRADE. I am banned from using TradeStation which was my first choice for direct access scalping.



-If you don't mind me asking, what kind of indicators do you use, or find most reliable.. I see that a RSI filer is quite popular here. (haven't got time to read through all the posts)

I don't use indicators anymore. It's all about PRICE.

Rumpled...

Sorry for the late reply...busy weekend !

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

"Alf, can you please elaborate on which one would be better. I am not a user of historical volatility."

"I don't know if this would be useful or not. You tell me, Alf."

------------------------------
Well...first of all...MAN...as usual Rumpled I'm very impressed !!!

Please allow me some time to digest the work you've done here.

To just spout off without a proper evaluation AND time to assimilate it all would NOT be fair !

Again...very impressive !!!

----put this on the lower lines under settings under settings use 1. add column rsi(2) 2. add column weekly rsi(2) 3. set{wm%, weekly atr(8)/weekly ema(8)}and add column wm% 4. set{v%, volume/average volume(100)} and add column v% 5. et{20d,close/ma(20 )}and add column 20d --------------------------------------------------------okay wm% is the weekly % movement of the stock for the last 8 weeks 0.1 is 1% and 0.12 is 12%-----rsi(2) the best daily indicator for tops and botrtoms--------weekly rsi(2)--best for 5-8 months lows and highs--------------v% is a volume spike whereas 1.0 is the average for the last 100 days- so 2.0 would be 2 times the average volume----20 d is your % movement above and velow the 20 day ma where as 0.80 is 20% below the 20 ma and 1,20 would be 20% above the 20 ma---- you only want to trade stocks with a volume above 1000000 shares-- ones that are optionable- and ones above the 200ma------ here is the best filter for finding the best stocks---set{ma1,close - ma(200)}
set{ma2, ma1/close}
set{%abovema200, ma2 * 100}


set{low1,close - low 20 day low}
set{low2, low1 / low 20 day low}
set{%above10daylow, low2 * 100}

add column low 20 day low
add column %above10daylow
add column ma(200)
add column %abovema200

draw ma(200)
and stock is optionable
volume > 250000
close > 15 and set{sm%, weekly atr(8)/weekly ema(8)} and sm% above 0.01 and close above ma(200) and set{rb%,close/ma(20)} and volume above 1000000

Hello M4M,

I was wondering, how does the filer you posed filter out the best clients? What should one look for?
I can see from your previously posts that you are an options trader, since most of your filters looks for strong stocks I guess that you simply buy call or puts or a type of spread, please correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm planning to trade options myself, but as I mentioned earlier in this post I will try to use income strategies and trending stocks.
