Filter Exchange · TRADING DIVERGENCES ON THE S&P 500

The signals generated here are fine, but please realize that I would probably re-optimize the filter settings since it has been a few years since they were developed. That is why I like Stratasearch - I can quickly re-run these against new data and see if the current parameters need updating (my guess is that almost certainly will).

If they are side-by-side that simply means that the entry signal occured two days in a row (e.g., the divergence has persisted).

A visual redesign that really adds no added value or functionality for the user. It looks basically the same as before, so no big "WOW" from me on the work.

Meanwhile, you have ignored the dozens of members who expressed frustration and anger over removing the backtesting capability, and have made only marginal changes to the syntax in the last five years (still no ability to use if, and, or statements without having to do nested user functions).

You seem to have your own agenda and ignore lots of requests for upgrades with comments like "we will look into that" or "we have no plans to do that in the near future". If you paid attention to the requests made in the forums and took action on them when possible, you would likely be better off than making these cosmetic changes - this is basically a new coat of paint on an old car.

You wanted feedback. You got some.

The boards are becoming less interesting as one person can pollute a lot of decent threads.

SF crew - is this the type of discourse you are hoping to have here? Stop being so passive regarding this type of troll behavior and step up.

Yup - actually I am going to move entirely into cash, since the 3, 6, 9, and 12 month ROC for AGG are all negative. I think that bonds are no longer a real safe haven given the Fed's intent to raise interest rates at some point this year.

I do not think that is possible. All emails are sent out in the evening after trading has closed.

There really is no SS code for this - it is all based on statistical probabilities, not really any code or filter. In truth this works 90% of the time for a decent gain but the 10% where it fails can erase a lot of successful weeks of gains. That is simply inherent in options trading.

I really have not focused on this system in a while - probably worth going back and looking at it, especially in range-bound markets like we have had recently.

Why not just use the custom moving average() function?

You make the same change, but directly into the cma() function rather than creating a new function (which usually does not work as you are beginning to notice).

I have been working with Stratasearch for the past week or so after reading one of your post referencing it. Appears to be a powerful program ! I am still in the learning phase.

How would you trade your SF code above? Exit ?
++++++++

The Zscore function I had to write as a custom function (not hard, as the SS coding language is not too complex). You can find it here:

http://www.stratasearch.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=950&p=4243#p4243

The entry code is:

Zscore(16) < -2 and

close > mov(close,200,simple) and

wlr(16) < -94 and

close < bbl(close,16,2)

Exit code:

Zscore(16) > -1 or

$daysheld > 20
