It's not you. No filter works perfectly, or even necessarily very well, under all market conditions. We all would love to find a filter that you run and then simply buy or sell the stocks if finds and they all make money everytime. Since that filter doesn't exist, we might try to find the next best thing, which is a filter that statistically produces good results consistently under certain market conditions, then use that filter when market conditions are appropriate.

A good example of this type of filter is the VIX-SPY ETF filter; you can find detailed discussion of it on this site. Traded according to the rules, it statistically produces good results but is not necessarily a sure thing everytime.

Generally, good filters from this site can identify good candidates for trading but making money consistently using this approach requires great skill in managing each trade.

You can learn a lot about trading by reading past posts on this forum.
