9/24/2007 11:17:38 PM Well awright, here you go. This is what I trade on in order of preferred trades. If the first filter and the last filter hits a stock on the same day, you bet I am going to enter the 60-day slope filter. All of these are applied to the Investor's Business Daily top 100 so I set the global filter to "apply to watchlist(ibd100september21)" and update the ibd100 watchlist every friday. Also, all but one of the exits are "Close crossed above Upper Bollinger Band(20,2)". That move is my limit and my stop. I test em all on the weekends...these backtests represent the latest watchlist tested for one year up to 21 of September, 2007. ================================================================ There were 4 total stocks entered. Of those, 4 or 100.00% were complete and or 0.00% were open. Of the 4 completed trades, 4 trades or 100.00%resulted in a net gain. Your average net change for completed trades was: 12.96%. The average draw down of your approach was: -2.87%. The average max profit of your approach was: 13.71% The Reward/Risk ratio for this approach is: 0.00 Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 232.90%, the ROI of ^SPX was: 15.43%. ================================================================ There were 14 total stocks entered. Of those, 13 or 92.86% were complete and 1 or 7.14% were open. Of the 13 completed trades, 13 trades or 100.00%resulted in a net gain. Your average net change for completed trades was: 14.11%. The average draw down of your approach was: -4.04%. The average max profit of your approach was: 15.71% The Reward/Risk ratio for this approach is: 0.00 Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 247.55%, the ROI of ^SPX was: 15.43%. =================================================================== (this exit is the one exception. I set 8% stop loss and 5% profit) There were 8 total stocks entered. Of those, 8 or 100.00% were complete and or 0.00% were open. Of the 8 completed trades, 8 trades or 100.00%resulted in a net gain. Your average net change for completed trades was: 5.12%. The average draw down of your approach was: -1.74%. The average max profit of your approach was: 6.11% The Reward/Risk ratio for this approach is: 0.00 Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 306.50%, the ROI of ^SPX was: 15.43%. ============================================================== There were 3 total stocks entered. Of those, 3 or 100.00% were complete and or 0.00% were open. Of the 3 completed trades, 3 trades or 100.00%resulted in a net gain. Your average net change for completed trades was: 13.21%. The average draw down of your approach was: -3.94%. The average max profit of your approach was: 12.98% The Reward/Risk ratio for this approach is: 0.00 Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 111.26%, the ROI of ^SPX was: 15.43%. ================================================================ There were 13 total stocks entered.

The average max profit of your approach was: 14.62% The Reward/Risk ratio for this approach is: 0.00 Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 182.96%, the ROI of ^SPX was: 15.43%. ================================================================= For this one the pattern is an increasing slope to the fourth line on about the fifth day, then down to about the second line on the sixth, then up to just higher than the previous high on the eighth. It goes up, down, then up. There were 63 total stocks entered. Of those, 56 or 88.89% were complete and 7 or 11.11% were open. Of the 56 completed trades, 52 trades or 92.86%resulted in a net gain. Your average net change for completed trades was: 6.60%. The average draw down of your approach was: -4.67%. The average max profit of your approach was: 7.84% The Reward/Risk ratio for this approach is: 47.59 Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 108.78%, the ROI of ^SPX was: 12.41%. ==================================================== There were 184 total stocks entered.

The average draw down of your approach was: -5.91%. The average max profit of your approach was: 9.55% The Reward/Risk ratio for this approach is: 35.66 Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 106.83%, the ROI of ^SPX was: 15.43%. ============================================================ There were 231 total stocks entered. Of those, 217 or 93.94% were complete and 14 or 6.06% were open. Of the 217 completed trades, 205 trades or 94.47%resulted in a net gain. Your average net change for completed trades was: 12.34%. The average draw down of your approach was: -6.36%. The average max profit of your approach was: 13.50% The Reward/Risk ratio for this approach is: 62.41 Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 126.91%, the ROI of ^SPX was: 15.43%. ============================================================== There were 15 total stocks entered. Of those, 15 or 100.00% were complete and or 0.00% were open. Of the 15 completed trades, 15 trades or 100.00%resulted in a net gain. Your average net change for completed trades was: 14.37%. The average draw down of your approach was: -6.62%. The average max profit of your approach was: 14.78% The Reward/Risk ratio for this approach is: 0.00 Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 138.68%, the ROI of ^SPX was: 15.43%. ================================================================= Yes, this one was recently suggested by somebody else (I forgot who) and I thank them greatly. I haven't traded on it yet but it seems quite promising. There were 193 total stocks entered. Of those, 187 or 96.89% were complete and 6 or 3.11% were open. Of the 187 completed trades, 174 trades or 93.05%resulted in a net gain. Your average net change for completed trades was: 6.62%. The average draw down of your approach was: -5.41%. The average max profit of your approach was: 7.72% The Reward/Risk ratio for this approach is: 24.29 Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 123.05%, the ROI of ^SPX was: 14.96%. ============================================================ So you can click and backtest these to your hearts desire but without applying the IBD100, your results will be mediocre at best. Getting down to the nitty gritty, these filters basically take the best stocks, look for a pullback to buy and then sell at a high. Too much...copy...pasting...typing....getting late. Still have to get up at the buttcrack of dawn to swing a hammer. But not for long.... |

9/24/2007 11:36:00 PM Yeah, I would like to but I don't understand what you posted. Can you explain it like you are talking to a fifth grader? (I am a very intelligent and in second grade). |

9/24/2007 11:41:13 PM Easy. Deconstruct TRO's next NTRI filter. It is the most advanced thinking in a filter by anyone on SF, bar none! Then, go back and read my post again. Apply your own filter criteria. (math required) |

9/25/2007 7:31:25 AM For betyerbottomdollar: using the IBD100, your watchlist changes every week, right? Or am I missing something simple?......................Frank |

betyerbottomdollar 169 posts msg #55175 - Ignore betyerbottomdollar |
9/25/2007 8:18:53 AM You are exactly right. Though the watchlist changes (usually) by 5 - 10 stocks each week. Usually the lower ones on the list juggle around and the higher stocks stick around. AAPL has been on there forever. |

Apply your own filter criteria. (math required)" Thanks for the compliment. However, the filter is simple. Don't let the number of lines of code fool you. Those are there for the display columns. I had too create my own sort field because SF only allows you to sort on one column and I don't feel like downloading to Excel everyday. I use SF more as a REPORT GENERATOR then a stock selector. But every now and then, I'll find a stock in a position I can exploit. Like SCON the past couple of weeks. |
