I use
Williams%R (30) has been above -20 for the past 3 days
and price is between 7 and 13
and Williams%R(30) is above -20
and volume is over 300,000
and stock is not ETF

This has performed very well in market bullish trends, one week, two weeks and one month
It works well with all prices but I find more higher percentage gains in these price ranges.
There seems to be some positive correlation with stocks who have declined in price the previous day.
The W%R(30) comes from Big Trends, they have a complete trading strategy.
If you combine this with stocks who have very recently given a Parabolic SAR Buy signal, it works very well
I also use directional Index as a Confirmation.signal

I am not familiar with the Parabolic Sar, but would the following code define a buy signal, when combined with other signals?

Parabolic SAR(0.02,0.2) < CLOSE
Parabolic SAR(0.02,0.2) 1 DAYS AGO < CLOSE 1 DAYS AGO
Parabolic SAR(0.02,0.2) 2 DAYS AGO > CLOSE 2 DAYS AGO
DRAW Parabolic SAR(0.02,0.2)

When looking at an indicator... I automatically start at these three sites:

-- Parabolic SAR

I don't scan for SAR. Simply use it on Stockcharts. I assume if it has given a very recent buy signal that it is probably good for a 7-10 day run before it will signal a sell. Posters above this have given you much better choice for information than I can. I don't necessarily use it for selling either. Not recommending it for others but I sell if I reach a 3% loss on my original investment. That is because I have failed to "cut my losses" on TOO many occasions. I can always re-enter a position if appropriate. If I am posting a profit, I watch several Indicators to decide when to take my profit. SAR just helps me decide among several different W%R buy signals. By the way, I said it works best in a bull market, DUH. I have over 90 scans, but W%R and Directional Index outperform all the others for both percentage of winners and largest percentage gains. Others have very good scans, these just work for me and my style and you asked specifically about W%R. GOOD LUCK .
