Hi, does anyone have a screen that could scan for stocks that have dipped below a positive sloping 20/21 MA and have created a green candle? Here's a video for a better description...

Sounds good to have an 80% or better situation. However, the presenter doesn't identify returns (percentage). Doesn't identify stop-loss or profit taking. Doesn't identify draw downs. He doesn't say what his returns are using this strategy. More candy...

Kevin does a much better job with his systems.

Just watched this - honestly, this is not a system but rather an opinion about how to "buy a dip". Nothing said about returns or how to exit. This is classic CNBC - buy, buy, buy. They never talk about exiting a trade, only entering one.

Four's opinion about my system development aside (but thanks, dude), you really need to have a solid entry AND exit strategy in place, and backtest it for at least 5 years through a series of different markets - I tend to use the 10 year period from 1999-2010 since this contained both strong bull and strong bear markets.

And for God's sake stop watching CNBC - worst thing a trader can do.
