My variation....I left the commented lines in but it seems to limit the filter too much and nothing comes back.

My backtesting with this variation (25% loss, 9% profit, everything else default) is in the 80% range......

Thanks for the idea!

/*Skymuse variation*/
/*ADX filter - buy screen*/
/*show stocks where adx(14) 2 days ago had been decreasing for 5 days */
and adx(14) has been increasing for the last 2 days
and adx(14) above 25
and adx(14) above +DI(14)
/*and adx(14) below -DI(14)*/
and -DI(14) above +DI(14)
and +DI(14) has been increasing for the last 2 days
and -DI(14) has been decreasing for the last 2 days
and volume above 100000
and price above 1

Skymuse, what a nice filter you have here. I backtested it against my set of parameters (mainly against a positive market atmosphere) and the results are this: 88% wins, 11% losses, and ROI = 108.46 %.

Those are impressive numbers. Thank you for your fine work.

Just curious -- what are your settings for backtesting?

I go with a 25% Stop Loss and 9% Profit Stop, and everything else default. With my variation I've also managed to get into the high 80% win range:

Win Lose W/L Ratio Reward/Risk ROI%
89% 11% 8.00:1 22.27 177.25%

Can't wait to try this one for real! Hopefully next week......

Infront --

Thank YOU for the idea; I've got some other things I'm playing with on this as well. If anything pans out I'll post back here.

Thanks again; the wheels are spinning....

When you backtest, do you short or place long positions?

If you short then you get impressive results, otherwise its 10% return in todays market if you go long. Which is still not bad.
