It's all cool, thanks for acknowledging. Most here know I pop in, thought provoke a bit, then I'm out. When I do post I'm more interested in the reactions from others to what I bring up than anything.

I write constantly elsewhere like a mad man, there I can control the value, copyright and build quality and mutually beneficial relationships. It's a great group. Most forums don't have a delete function anyway, thus I would never post. I highly approve, recommend and use StockFetchers filtering functions. The right scans and the right method, you can't lose. Only the best in your search.

BarTune1: Thank you for your insights.

You state, "Finally, if you follow the rest of Connors trading rules, you are usually buying pull backs of stocks in an uptrend, only on strong pull backs, and in conjunction with an overall market pullback (i.e., by timing trades relative to a VIX divergence for example). You can also short by reversing some of the rules."

Specifically which Connors book did you read that contains information on the above Connors trading rules?

Thank you
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Does anyone else have experience with Connors rules that they may wish to share?

Short Term Trading Strategies That Work

and

High Probability ETF Trading

I have read both books and use systems that incorporate the rules. For the most part I have been very successful trading these systems.

That being said, it has recently been brought to my attention recently that there are people here that don't care for Connors work.

Whatever; the bottom line is that trading successfully is all about finding a system that works for you - whatever it may be - and there obviously many varied systems out there.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

There are as many systems as there are investors - having looked at Connors trading strategies, albeit from a distance as I have only seen synopses of the rules and have not read the books yet, I think there is significant value to his approach.

I would suggest that you think about simple rules for entry and exit ahead of any trade, and do not deviate if at all possible. The simpler your signals, the easier they are to interpret, and therefore the easier they are to follow.

Anyone who looks at what I have posted would quickly see that I have briefly adopted a number of different systems over the last year or so. Lost a ton of money on MACD-based signals, but mostly because I did not exit when it said to, and would move my stops down rather than let them get hit. Incredibly stupid.

Bollinger Bands work, but are best on the indices rather than individual stocks. I am using these now on the ^VIX and ^DXY to make my entries, and let them run for 3-5 days or so then take profit. I also use the Connors approach of averaging in if needed, but then set a hard stop loss of the new value and go from there.

ENTRY and EXIT rules are an integral part of any system.
