Aborted Attempt #2... here's why:

Fetcher[
set{A100, count(Aroon Oscillator(8) above 50, 100)}

a100 above 0

add column a100
add column Aroon Oscillator(8)

sort column 5 descending
]



After failing at writing the filter a few times, I decided something must be wrong.

I know I can code an SF filter so I looked at the data.

I decided to look at ALL OF THE STOCKS to see if any had an Aroon Oscillator(8) anywhere near 100 over the past 100 days.

Guess what? The is answer is NO!

So there is no MAGIC BOX to be found unless something changes in the formula.

"Thou shalt READ what is written"

I was not familiar with the Aroon indicator... I use the oscillator when the text said AROON DOWN!

Another Attempt:

Fetcher[

set{xBB1, count(HIGH crossed above the upper bollinger band (20),1) - count(LOW crossed below the lower bollinger band (20),1)}

set{xBB2, count(close above the upper bollinger band (20),1) - count(close below the lower bollinger band (20),1)}

set{xBB, xBB1 + xBB2}


/* day 1 */

close 1 day ago below open 1 day ago
xbb 1 day ago below 0
Aroon down(8) 1 day ago equal 100

/* day 2 */

close above open
Aroon down(8) below 88

add column Aroon down(8)
add column Aroon down(8) 1 day ago
add column Aroon down(8) 2 days ago

sort column 5 descending
]



The is the first part.... finding the candidates... now you add them to a watch list and wait for the Williams %R to go up.

MAY ALL YOUR FILLS BE COMPLETE.

Aroon down(8) 2 days ago equal 100

/* day 2 */

close 1 day ago above open 1 day ago
Aroon down(8) 1 day ago below 88

/* day 3 */

Aroon down(8) below 76
Williams %R(14) crosses above -50

add column Aroon down(8)
add column Aroon down(8) 1 day ago
add column Aroon down(8) 2 days ago
add column Williams %R(14)

sort column 5 descending

Looks pretty close to me.

JUST TO MAKE THINGS CLEAR...

I DIDN'T THINK OF THE MAGIC BOX.

SOMEONE ASKED ME TO WRITE THE FILTER...

SO THAT'S WHAT I DID.

THE IDEA IS NOT MINE.

THE MAGIC BOX

The reason that I named this setup the Magic Box was so that you could relate to it and remember it faster.

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

Avery how would a "normal person" decipher the above statement?

that was from the links that go4it posted:

http://home.cinci.rr.com/kgoodrich/Magic%20Box.doc

http://home.cinci.rr.com/kgoodrich/The%20Fairy%20Square.doc

All I did was click on the links and post the info.

Then I posted:

"Simple rule:

When you want someone to do something, make it as easy as possible for them to do it.

Give them ALL the information that you have and that they will need.

Do NOT make them have to go get it when you have it. Just give it to them."

Because, GO4IT, posted the links rather than post the info along with the links.

In other words, I had to do an extra step to get the info.

It may not seem like a big deal but when you get request and a regular recurring basis, you want to save as much time as possible.

Besides, Trapper, you know how I write, it should have been obvious that wasn't me.
