NEAR (page 21)
Near is a convenient phrase that generically defines two measures or values to be close in
proximity. StockFetcher defines two measures to be “near” each other when the distance between
the two values is less than 2%. This 2% threshold is a generic assumption; however, near is
easily applied and often used in the initial stages of developing a StockFetcher phrase. Take for
example, a filter that has one component where the price needs to be near the lower Bollinger

Show stocks where the low is near the lower Bollinger band(20)

On a first pass, this will provide many examples where the daily low is within 2% of the lower
Bollinger band. After further development, more control of the exact proximity may be necessary.
At that point, phrases such as more than or less than may be used.

Show stocks where the low is less than 5% above the lower Bollinger(20) band
and The low is less than 2% below the lower Bollinger(20) band

Clearly this second example provides more control of the proximity of the daily low with respect
to the measure;

where i made the follwoing trades--i used the following filter on sf----to screen for breakout stocks--stock is optionable and volume above 500000 and weekly macd(2,3,1) below 0 last 4 weeks ---this will give me about 10-20% of the optionable stocks to look at- then i start flipping thru the charts- i only want ones that where the weekly rsi-2 is heading up-so this gets rid of about 50-75% of the stocks selected by the screen above- now you only want the ones with the flatest weekly rsi-2 bottoms and a sudden up surge to the 50% line-- this gave me about 40 out of the 240 stocks selected--and you want the ones that have the strongest weekly macd 2 3 1 moves up off their bottoms- you will have to include the following in you chart graph settings--here is what is use---draw rsi(2) crossing above weekly rsi(2)---draw weekly macd(2,3,1)---chart-type is Candlestick-----draw Linear Regression (100)--------here is what i use for my filter headers----set{DA, rsi(2)} and add column DA------set{WE,weekly rsi(2)}and add column WE-------set{X, weekly atr(8)/weekly ma(8)} set{PROFIT,X*100} AND ADD COLUMN PROFIT--------set{hv%,historical volatility(5)/historical volatility(50)} and add column hv%--------SET{Vs,volume/average volume(50)} and add column VS---------set{rb20,close/ma(20)} and add column rb20-------set{rb50,close/ma(50)} and add column rb50------set{rb200,close/ma(200)} and add column rb200-----------------add column weekly macd(2,3,1)-----------set{low1,close - low 200 day low}set{low2, low1 / low 200 day low} set{%above200daylow, low2 * 100}add column %above200daylow------explanation of indicators above-----da-daily rsi-2 ------we weekly rsi-2-----profit indicator------hv%- is to find stocks with low hv% <0.50 to look for tight consolidations------vs is your volume spike indicator-where 1.0 is the 50 ma of the volume-so 2.0 would be 2x volume and so on----rb20 rb50 rb 200 are your % above and below the 20 50 and 200 ma s--0.95 would be 5% below and 1.05 would be 5 % above--this shows you how strong a stock is running--if you want you may want to use a rb5 or rb10 for a shorter time span---------- the one showing the % above the 200 day low-shows you which stocks have made the biggest move off their 3-06-09 bottoms and you may want to update this every friday--so next Friday would be 204 days-------------now my next screen is to go to to screen the 40 stocks left above to see if they are buying or selling and what the block trades look like in ah--you can sign up for free or get the live charts for 10$ per month--so you take the sells and buys add them up and divide that into the buys to get a %- you want >50% buys but the high the better- then you look at the block trades and see if they are sell or buys and what you want to end up with is stocks where the buying side and block trade side is schewed to the upside the stronger the better--next you go to sf an make a watch list with the following--headers--add column rsi(2)-----add column rsi(2)--------et{p,weekly atr(8)/ weekly ma(8)} and add column p-----add column weekly macd(2,3,1)---et{3weeksago,weekly rsi(2) 3 weeks ago} and add column 3weeksago------and you want the stocks nearest to the 0 line on the weekly macd 2 3 1 with out going over 0---you also want the the highest p which is the same as x---- and you want the stocks that were the lowest 3 weeks ago on the weekly rsi(2)----here are the 21 stocks left after screening the original 240 stocks are screening filter gave us-- it looks like nite-- stec psun and untd look like the best stocks to play options on--this is how i found amr cenx ntri and dal before they made their big break outs-good luck--lerogee-

and you can use on bottom or top rsi-2 when c got to <1% on the daily and weekly- at about 3.20 the buy volume kicked in big time- so i got it near 3.13 using the 30 rsi-2 to pick the bottom off- bought 20000 jan 4 calls for-- at 0.045 and 0.04 was the low--got a ton of nite stec calls above the price for jan-easpecially stec- it make giant moves up off its bottom-- and had the highest x at 0.22 its last move was 3-42$--you can go to-- during the trading day-Schaeffer's Options Center-- to look for giant spikes in the option volume-- look at ryl where they were buying 92.4% puts on it--so i checked the buy and sell volume right away for the stock--and it showed slightly to the buy side on both the buy volume and block vol in ah--so i did nothing because it didnt confirm the put volume which could of been selling puts instead of buying puts--Unusual Option Volume Stocks

orcl was 65% calls--the volume was 60% sell- bu the ah block volume was massive on the buy side- so the calls above might be good since the stock had good earnings-another thing is to look at what the daily candle looked like for friday---lets look at rimm-great earnings--sell volume about 51% but it was 57% at the low near 69 earlier in the day- so this had a pos finsih- so i bought 36000 jan 75-90 calls---wlp shows 74% calls- and 3.2 times its average option volume--its a majot block and stock sell off - 64% sells on friday and 90% block sells--perhaps they were selling the calls-pass on this one--v 76% calls and 3.2 time average opt vol--whow 80% buy volume- a defite call paly for jan---pot-64% calls--50/50 on volume- pass-- chk 65% calls- 55% buy volume-maybe---here is very important thing- they show what % is bought at the bid or ask- with the high% at the ask considered bullish- this what the heatseek thing on optionmonster is based on- big sudden block buys at the ask--Call Buying
