show stocks where the day range is above 1%
and Average Volume(90) above 8000000
and Close above 20
and market is nasdaq remove edit

I reload the data daily so I have the watch list charts the way I want them. My standard "3" golden geese are part of these but I venture into others for day trades as well. Especially when RSI numbers/lin regressions/aditional indicators "stack the odds" in one direction or another. The "geese" usually get traded daily, but sometimes the "odds" are better in the other high volume/volatility stocks. SNDK was big Thursday and Friday even though I rearely trade it. The odds were a little tilted.

Thanks to many on here for helping form this this technique over the past couple years....it has been profitable. Getting to "know" a few have been the best income producers. Plenty of other screens to look for "opportunities".

Great thread :)

Why do I still use StockFetcher?

I use StockFetcher to show me the statistics on AAPL and the rest of my "herd".

SF also identifies new "cows" from time to time.

But I basically just scalp AAPL whenever I trade equities.

TRO,

How did you decide to 'specialize' in AAPL?

I've been focusing on F for regular trades but I wonder if there are better stocks for reasons I haven't thought of.

Thanks

WHY I SCALP TRADE AAPL


1) VOLUME - You don't want to get stuck with the OLD MAID

2) VOLATILITY - Price action equals opportunity... that's all you can ask for - an opportunity to take profit... THE MARKET NEVER GIVES YOU PROFIT. No movement, no opportunity.

3) DAY RANGE - Enough movement that capturing just a small fraction can make me a few hundred a day.

Yes, I'm on the side of simplicity. I use one general screen and can explain it to an eighth grader. In the three years I've been using SF I've always looked for quality, there can be so much noise out there. Keeping it simple has helped me develop good chart pattern recognition skills, too. That may have helped my trading most of all. I think a lot of people have the image that trading has to be intense and complicated.

Have also appreciated the SF community as well.

Most of my trading life has been trading the index, so QID/QLD applies to me as well. There might be more profit in individual stocks though.

Looks like AAPL will buck the tide and open higher this a.m.

Ok. This begs the question. If this is what you all believe, why subscribe to stockfetcher?

"Ok. This begs the question. If this is what you all believe, why subscribe to stockfetcher?"

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

Finding STOCKS from the whole Universe of Stocks is not the way I approach things with StockFetcher.

Finding short term PRICE PATTERNS from a small WATCHLIST of stocks is the way I use StockFetcher. Along with providing me info on those Watchlist Stocks...by way of columns.
