Are you sure it's the scanner and not the way you trade??? you should give us an example of a stock you trade from your scan.

ok i used muddy's filter
set{x,count(volume above volume 1 day ago,1)*2}
set{y,count(volume above average volume(90),3)}
set{z,x+y}
and z is above 1.1
and close has been decreasing over the last 3 days
and low is below lower bollinger band(20)
and count(close above open,3) is below 2.1
and rsi(2) is below 1
and close is between 1 and 10
and average volume(90) is above 100000

i buy when the stock goes green and hold
i usually sell the stock if it falls below 2%

this strategy has not been working too well
but this scan is not very consistent

any ideas to make me a better swing trader?

Someone posted this filter recently on SF, I think this is a very good Swing Filter. Buy stocks bouncing off the BB29 or moving through from below BB29 and setting you stop when a stock open and close below BB29, very simple yet effective. Paper trade first before taking it live....important *** trade with the trend.

show stocks where close is above 1
and average volume(90) > 500000
/*and where average volume(30) > average volume(90) */
/*and where average volume(5) < average volume(15) */
/*and where the close reached a new 13 week high within the last 15 days */
and rsi(2) one day ago < 10
/*and rsi(2) is decreasing for last 5 days */
/*close above high 15 day ago*/
and close > ma(20)
and ma(20) > ma(50)
and ma(50) > ma(200)
and close is greater than high 1 day ago
do not draw ma(20)
do not draw ma(50)
do not draw ma(200)
Draw Bollinger %B(29,0.1)
Draw Bollinger %B(12,0.1)
Draw ema(100)
