Seems you must first state that you have been enlightened, in fact illuminated,
by the clarity and simplicity, ZEN indeed.

Then......HE will come.....and with a forlorn sigh ......take pity on those who
are still wandering the wilderness....

ps:

Chill , gaurdians of politeness, it IS half true......and all in good fun.

LOL. We are all yale grads by the criteria stated.

How many "last filter you will need EVER' need threads are we up to?

Actually, the fading the gaps statistics filter is a great resource and tool.

Funny how it is actually easy to explain as well (one would think).

I mean the whipsaws at the daily line can be like a blender some days from what i saw, and sometimes in the thread he talks about making $6 by staying 1 direction then on choppy days says take the nickel & dimes, and how convenient. And somehow thru osmosis you are supposed to guess the weakening trend between red & green candles both on choppy days and $6 days??? I've got news for you. green & red candles and weakening trends can happen in choppy & directional trades. Plus the fact that the 10-20 cent indicator should be a % due to the ever changing price of the stock.


I like the idea of simplicity since i trade in a similar manner, the difference being that i believe prices usually come back to levels using a combination of gaps and pivot points has worked great for me. No need to think. Set it & Forget It.

In closing i want to like this, but needs modification. But i like what was attempted here.

*********

"His way" is a static "amount".

There is no percentage.

-OR-

Do the calculation: .10 / price = percentage /* To determine percentage */

Assume stock = $20
Then: .10 / 20 = .005 = ____%

Assume a stock = $200
Then: .10 / 200 = .0005 = ____%

I posted the same observation a while back - why 0.20 on AAPL when it is at 80, and not now 0.50 when it is over 200? Shouldn't we be looking for 0.25%?

The answer TRO gave was "that is not how the statisitcs were calculated."

Not entirely satisfying. I wrote my own variant of this MTC filter to meet my needs which just looks for the same characteristics in percentages rather than in cents.

so i'm reading this thread and getting a headache. so tell me can you lose on a daily basis? are there days when you lose? i'm getting it a little more but what prevents you from making a 5 minute video to compress and simplify this amazing technique?

OK Brother. Great thread and i dig, but you have to be more upfront about your schism about scalping and boasting when you let it ride, for anyone could tell that if scalping, you're out early and that's it!! And the whipsaw around the red & blue lines can rip u a new anus... but a very interesting read.

1 question. If you go long and get out and price comes back to blue, can you opt to go long again? Or do you opt to go alternately long lets say after a red candle turns green again way above the zone?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My take:

scalping and boasting when you let it ride
To make this clear---I scalp 2/3 of my position let the remainder ride and manage it.

tell me can you lose on a daily basis?
I did when I started trading this system. I kept changing the stocks I was trading and was always trying to wait for price to go to .50. Praying that it would go higher.

are there days when you lose
There has been, but my winning days have out numbered my losers.

If you go long and get out and price comes back to blue, can you opt to go long again?
You can opt to get back in, but the stats are daily.

Or do you opt to go alternately long lets say after a red candle turns green again way above the zone?
Not this system. but I have been working on short at the +.50 and long at -.50, but have not traded it. Just observation.

I hope this helped Messayah. I had many of the same questions when I started looking at this. if you are thinking of
trying this method, I would suggest starting with 100-200 share lots. That's what I did.

The problem is with whipsaws.Why couldn't someone filter out stocks that open where they close and not cross back intra day below the open.That would be a filter you can make money with,stand alone.Chet????

You know i'm starting to like this method but i'm worried about those days where it whipsaws at turnaround point all day. or is this insignificant considering how profitable other days are.

My other question is do you dump a bad long trade when it hits the daily open or when it hits -.10 red?

So Stratig, have you done a comparison of scalping and letting it ride and only switching on crossover? Which comes out ahead or does it vary?

StratiG are you calling your cows with this filter:

Fetcher[

/* TRO MTC CHECKER */

set{ hiop, high - open }
set{ up10, count( hiop > 0.09, 100 ) }
set{ up50, count( hiop > 0.49, 100 ) }
set{ pct1, up50 / up10 }
set{winpct, 100 * pct1 }

add column up10
add column up50
add column winpct


up50 above 79

average volume(90) above 1000000

market is nasdaq

sort column 7 descending
]



Thanks,
