For the posted filters on this thread

So the entry is at open - $ 0.25 after the trigger date?
And have you thought of an exit?

Nope. I am using a stoplimit: high of trigger date +.01.
I always have trouble with exits. I am always hoping that you guys have one that I can wrap my head around.
Usually I set an initial limit of 3% and then watch the action. Again, I hope to see many of your exit ideas and hope to see the one or two that I can get used to.

This is a different filter idea. I never went further with this idea because it morphed into the posted idea. Perhaps someone can take the "filter idea" and run with it

For ease, here is a copy of the original thought...

--- This was started with the idea of catching a value that will get me in "just above the bottom".
I was wondering about finding a stock that "frequently" offers a way of getting in above the day low.

Would it be great to find a stock that OPEN - $X is often >= the day low... and the next day would offer a HIGH that is $X above yesterday's OPEN... as a meaningful percentage?


I agree with your thoughts below
If that is the case it would be an idea to calculate the average drop for each individual candidate.
Maybe the stock dropped $ 1 from the open 75 out of 100 times?

And have you thought of an exit? Nope--I always have trouble with exits.

LONG: (stoplimit) at High + .01 to enter?
PS How did you enter?
_____________________________

I entered at the open. Bad on me. I usually use price > high, because I agree with you on using the open. The "random" period I tested was 7/1/08 - 11/1/08. Ran using high + .01 and loss was reduced to -38.1%. But when I added your spx code, there were no trades between 7/1/08 and 3/3/09, then it started generating good profits. My membership only allows backtesting for 4 months at a time, but I'll run this through until the present. Wow! Very impressive. Are you trading this yourself? Oh, I also set my testing at max. 5 stocks/day and 8 max. total.

Forgot to say I use RSI(2) > 90 as an exit with a stop loss of 6%.

Backtested from 1/1/2008 to 10/21/2013. The first 2 years were good and this past year was very good. Unfortunately, there were enough bad periods in between to make it unsuitable to trade as is. I still like the idea and I'll do some meddling around with it. If something really good pops up, I'll post it.

POP is required... otherwise StockFetcher deletes any thread for eternity. In other words, activity on a thread is required to keep it "alive".

Example of a deleted thread: See below : -1 = Replies column and see date and time are "zeroed"
