How do i show qstick(12) crossed above qstick ema (50)
then moved above 0. Cross happened under 0. Thought i could do it but not.

This is what I would try. You can set the number of days look back to whatever you want.


qstick(12) crossed above cema(qstick(12),50) within the last 5 days
qstick(12) 1 day ago below 0
cema(qstick(12),50) 1 day ago below 0
qstick(12) above 0

"close 3 days ago was within 99% of lower Bollinger Band(16,2) 3 days ago?"

This should work:

Bollinger %B(16,2) 3 days ago between 0.00 and 0.01

Read the manual - all of this is covered in the first few chapters. I gave you this feedback previously and clearly you ignored it.

Well, luckily the ROC is just the percent gain from X days ago. Since each quarter has 63 days or 13 weeks for trading, one could use ROC(126,1) if SF let the ROC() function look back more than 100 days - currently it does not.

I use weekly ROC(13,1) for a quarter year and weekly ROC(26,1) for a half-year. It works fine for me with no smoothing.

Your goal is not to make money in a bear market, but to protect current assets. Too much of a trader's perspective, not thinking about wealth accumulation. Just my personal spin on things, which has evolved over my time here to more of a longer term investment mindset.

AGG. My definition of a Bear market would be when the 6 month ROC of AGG is above the 6 month ROC of SPY. When that happens, move into AGG and wait until the 6 month ROC of SPY rises back above that of AGG.

I am using an even simpler system - just SPY or AGG. Based on my SS optimization the best look-back period was 6 months. Even after today's drubbing it still says to stay in SPY right now. We'll see at the end of the month.

My guess is that no one here on SF will use this, since the frequency with which you re-allocate is only once or twice a year. Probably too boring even though it will beat most faster-paced strategies.

The code for this is pretty simple - I will repost it here:


sort on column 5 descending

offset 63 days

Just invest in the top performer. No additional code needed. The Stratasearch code was developed for optimizing the look-back period, which remains at 3 months as the best performer. Just us this simple code at the end of each month.

Try this:

Close is above 40

close above 40

and The stock’s average daily volume over the past 21 days (one trading month) at least 250,000 shares per day.

average volume(21) above 250000

and The stock’s 10-day Average Directional Index (ADX) above 30.

ADX(10) above 30

and today the stock’s lowest price at least 2% below the previous day’s close.

low more than 2% below close 1 day ago

and Today’s close is in the bottom 25% of the day’s range.

Close is below Day Position(0.25,1)

and The ConnorsRSI value of the stock below 5.

Connors RSI(3,2,100) below 5

Final Comment - download and read the users manual. All of this (and a lot more) is in there. Also read other people's filters and posts to learn how to code in SF. Take existing filters and play with them to see what changes affect the outcomes. Make an effort to learn the code here and others will be more than willing to help you in along that journey. It is not hard to do.
