HI Stacks:

Welcome to the jungle!

If you post your best filter, we'll look at it and see if we can make it better.

Sure, I have created filters with over 1700% profits, but I wouldn't trade them ... "for entertainment purposes only". Start reading the archives, you'll find a bunch of great filters.

Be careful, I have a filter that historically produces 800% ROI in backtesting, but actually loses money if you trade 0.01% of the volume of every stock ... the losing percentages had more cash attached than the winning percentages.

I always run my own analysis in Microsoft Excel using the downloaded trades.csv files.
