Thanks for the filter!

How do you interpret and, therefore, trade the numbers ( positive and negative values) posted in "histxd" and "stocxd"?

I would propose a simple set of code here - look at when all three "arrows" are green and visually review entries and exits.

Fetcher[


set{MACDcross, count(MACD histogram(12,26) above 0,1)}
set{stochcross, count(Slow Stochastic(25,3) Fast %K above 25,1)}
set{MA30cross, count(close above ma(30),1)}

set{trigger1, MACDcross + stochcross}
set{trigger, trigger1 + MA30cross}

MACD Histogram (12,26,9) above 0
Slow Stochastic(25,3) Fast %K above 25
close above MA(30)
add column trigger

draw trigger
draw macd histogram(12,26)
draw Slow Stochastic(25,3) Fast %K line at 25 line at 75
draw MA(30)

Market is S&P 500

Right now 288 of the 500 S&P stocks are meeting these criteria. Operationally this is too many, so some additional screening needs to be added to get this to a more manageable (and hopefully more profitable) number.

Kevin - that is where I thought your relative strength measure would come in handy.
Using something similar to your 12 week ROC and Alpha indication from the ETF filter
from the retirement selection thread?
That would greatly reduce the candidates even more.
Just a thought but I thank all for getting this this far - this is awesome.
Cheers

When I say reduce the candidates that is not a correct statement - sorry it was late - what I meant to state was that buy ranking the candidates it would allow one to pick higher ranked candidates for further review based on relative strength or Alpha.
