Avery, I did have a chance to watch these this morning and can now see which ones are good candidates. I certainly can see why you like AAPL. Just out of curiosity, how long do you spend trading these? Do you watch for perhaps the first couple hours or most of the day?

Thank you,

Drew

A. THAT'S NOT HOW I TRADE... I WILL BE IN/OUT FOR A PENNY IF THAT'S ALL I CAN GET. IF THE PRICE STALLS, I AM USUALLY OUT OF THE TRADE.

Q. - and, how often are there 3 (-0.2) stops in a row before a 0.5 gain comes in?

A. THAT'S NOT HOW I TRADE.... I WOULD BE OUT WHEN THE PRICE STOPS GOING MY WAY.

...you know - thatīs whatīs confusing me: you develop great filers based on pure statistics, and then you donīt trade your own filter the way you expose it.
Why???

Q. how long do you spend trading these?

A. In theory, until I hit my goal. This system was designed so I could with a laptop at the beach and make my taco money in less than an hour. Why waste a good day sitting in front of a computer?


Q. Do you watch for perhaps the first couple hours or most of the day?

A. When I am not at the beach, I am in my office with the computers all day until I get tired or feel like doing something else.
