Brian, here's one way to go about it. Obviously there are a number of ways to qualify a 3-5 day pullback. If your're looking for something different, please respond:

Fetcher[set{x, count(ma(20) above ma(50),5)}
show stocks where x above 4 and do not draw x and 3 day slope of close below 0 and draw ma(20) and draw ma(50) and average volume(50) above 100000

Where many traders look for break-outs and break-downs to signal a trade, some of the highest probability trade set-ups can actually be found on the counter trend move. Ideally we want to buy a strong stock during a pullback and sell a weak stock during a rally. That is what this set-up helps us to identify. This trade set-up can be used for both long trades and short trades.
Counter Trend Set-up for Long Trades

This set-up is to be used when the overall market or major market sector is in an up-trend. For a long trade entry we look for stocks that are outperforming the market, are in a confirmed up-trend and have declined over the past three days on lower volume. We like to see stocks decline to near their 20-day exponential moving average (EMA). The 20-day EMA is often a point of support during minor pull backs.
Once we have identified a candidate we buy when the close is greater than the previous days close. For short-term traders a trailing stop should be considered. I prefer to place a stop on a close below either previous day's low or the low two days ago.
1. Find a stock whose 20-day Rate of Change (ROC) is greater than the 20-day ROC of the Russell 3000.
2. Whose ADX (14) > 20 and (+DMI > -DMI)
3. Close > Close 20 days ago
4. Close > 20-day exponential moving average (EMA)
5. Close < (20-day EMA + .10*20-day EMA) - Looking for a stock that is near its 20-day exponential average.
6. Today's Low < the Low 3-days ago
7. The 3-day moving average of Volume is less than the 3-day moving average of volume 3-days ago. AND On Balance Volume > its 30-day EMA
/* counter trend long set-up */
set{CC,days(close is above close 1 day ago,100)}
show stocks where price is between $30.00 and 180.00
and average volume(30) is above 250,000
and date offset is 0
and ROC(20) is above Ind(^RUA,ROC(20))
and ADX(14) is above 25
and +DI is above -DI
and close is above close 20 days ago
and close is above EMA(20)
and close divided by EMA(20) is between 1.10 and 0.90
and low is below the low 3 days ago
and average volume(3) is below average volume(3) 3 days ago
and OBV(30) is above Average OBV(30)

Ah yes...the ole Momentum Retracement...

...the ole Slope Opposition...the ole "Holy Grail Trade" ala Linda B. Rashke !

I have been trying to perfect a scan for this set-up for some time !

The problem with trying to "capture" this set-up with a technical scan is never REALLY knowing whether a "counter-trend move" is just THAT...a "counter-trend move."

Many times it's a "trend CHANGE !"

Having said that...I agree with pretty much everything "ham" says ! I LOVE this set-up...and have said so numerous times on other threads here on SF.

It is a "BUY The DUMPS...SELL The HUMPS" strategy !

The following is one such scan that I have written and am currently using with some success. It does require entry filters though (I can elaborate if anyone is interested). You can't just blindly BUY the stocks it returns. It is still a work in progress...but...I've been pretty pleased with some of the results.

I welcome feedback from others.

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

This is the LONG scan:

Fetcher[Show stocks where the

count(EMA(10) above EMA(30),10) is above 5 and
count(RSI(14) above 50,20) is above 10 and
count(Close below PP,10) is above 2 and

EMA(10) is above EMA(30) and
EMA(30) is above EMA(150) and

30 day Slope of Close is above 0 and
15 day Slope of the EMA(10) 3 days ago is above 0 and
5 day Slope of Low is below 0 and

Close reached a new 4 day Low within the last 2 days and
Close above Day Position(0.40,1) and
Close above S1 1 day ago

Average Volume(65) is above 100000 and
Price is above 2

and add column High
and add column PP {pivot}
and add column Low
]



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

I'm currently tinkering with a "mirror" of this filter for playing the SHORT side.

This filter shows pullback percentage based on 52 week high/low but you can change that to fit your needs. It also uses the STOCK DASHBOARD DISPLAY columns.

Use

PBPct below 10

instead of

PBPct above 90

and you get some really strong stocks.

MY SCAN IS THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM...

...DON'T ANYONE DARE MESS WITH IT !

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED !!!

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

But seriously...get to know it...it IS a "MONEY-MAKER" !

B-uh-uh-uh-t !

Like most filters...it DOES require some work (GOD FORBID) from the user !

Apparently (around here), if the scan doesn't FIND the stocks...

...ENTER the trades for you...

...MANAGE the trade once you're in...and...

...AUTOMATICALLY move your STOPS where you are GUARANTEED to make a profit...

...IT'S WORTHLESS !!!

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

That seems to be the hurdle ALL stock filters must clear.

I'll keep looking for such a filter...BUT...in the meantime...you guys might consider letting this filter make you RICH (ie. MY above FILTER)!

Just a thought !

Ok ALF44, I am listening...

Explain how to use your filter and select/trade the stocks from it.

You have the floor...

RumpledOne,

That you would ask that question tells me one thing...you have obviously not done any sort of "click-through" with my humble filter...starting about 30 or 40...or, 50 days ago...to present ! If you had...I think the answer to your question ("how to make money with this filter") would be fairly obvious !

Do me a favor !

Do that !

Do it for me !

Then...I'll be glad to answer any questions you (or other posters) might have !

I have removed some of the "drawn" lines that SF likes to add to the Flash Charts. I have also added some lines that I want to see...as well as some of the indicators I like to glance at to help me determine the situation that is present at the time.

I have also added a "SHORT" version of the "LONG" filter I previously posted ! It is basically a "mirror" of the LONG version. They are BOTH posted below.

As I said before...these scans are a work in progress...but...they're pretty damn good right now !

Give'em a test drive:
