I was wondering if someone could help me out. I just bought a great algorithm (I can refer you to them if you are interested). What makes the algorithm work for an investor is only long positions, and increasing consistently over time with some volatility (so it gets picked up again after closing out each position).

Does anyone know what I would put in the stock fetcher search engine to find the best stocks for this algorithm?

It's called Cool Trades. Great logic in the model. It will churn profitability if you can find equities that consistently rise while having a decent amount of volatility. Given that, do you know how I would search in stock fetcher to find those stocks that would do well in the model?

pthomas215,

"if you can find equities that consistently rise while having a decent amount of volatility"

Define "consistently rise"
Define "decent amount of volatility"

Thanks. I would say beating the S&P 500 for 4 months. The idea is to get an increasing trend over time so you are consistently closing out of positions. You get back into new positions in the model when volatility occurs. it dips, new position. It's an auto trader. i have never traded like this before so who knows. If you have interest I will put you in touch with the ceo who wrote the program.

I notice "beating the S&P 500 for 4 months" and wonder how 4 months and the index SP500 are significant versus 3 months and the NASDAQ?

The yearly license is not attractive (over 2000 dollars / year), but thanks for the offer.

Yeah, I am not sure I know the difference / significance between the two you mentioned. nasdaq is probably more relevant.
