General Discussion · Best Trading Approach??
msg #116834

Best approach for short term and longer term trading and investing is to catch the Bull when he's happy for the longer run. Catch the happy trend ( ie. Spy, QQQ, DIA) for the shorter term trading. You enter in those time frames and you stand a chance at being happy yourself. Day trading, catch stocks that are bi polar by playing the right filter and you will be enjoying sweet successes. Knowing when to get out of trades is an art in itself. Experience at doing it is the key. Remember, if you lose get yourself up and learn from it and get back in the game, and never stop learning. Trading with a poker face approach will help you, trading stocks with too much emotion will pummel you and your wallet. Stay focused and trade with money you can lose.

General Discussion · Affixed Yellow shaded measurements tags on the right side of new chart are obstruction

On chart created while I am in the "backtest" section, why not box in "yellow" or hightlight the whole box in "yellow" the price value (off to the right side of the chart) showing what the price value is when you put your cross hairs on a particular spot on the chart?

Right now when I do that the box, showing its price, over at the right side (indicating my cross hair fix on the chart) is a black box with a black color numeral to which blends in with other black box and its numeral showing the last days closed price value. If you could please put in color the whole box "yellow" or highlight it in "yellow" indicating what price value the cross hair is currently showing. It would help us see this cross haired price value much better. I use this particular cross hair function in finding what price value I would have had if I would have bought or sold at that point.

Thank you.

Kevin, did you stop using Tro's Crock Pot filter scenario and now working solely on this new approach? Or, are you still using the Crock Pot approach as your main buying filter and just playing around with this new experiment?

When you are finished with your trials will you run a comparison to both of these methods and let us know which you find as the best filter to use?

Did you pick up some SNTS before it went ballistically delicious? Amazing how something lays dormant for a little bit then explodes upward. The financials before it going up were very good numbers to begin with. I was just waiting for others to notice it too. I guess they did! Happy investing.

Shills, you probably missed SNTS because that stock went skyward. But, you can't grab em all I guess.

I fixed the graphing problem I had with a segment of the backtest area. By updating my browser to the current version of AOL it seemed to do the trick. The graph now works again. Why only that part of its graphing situations had trouble with the past version of AOL and no other graphing function had trouble has me stumped. But, it works now so all is good. Thanks for your help in this situation.

StockFetcher Staff, when I get my results from a backtest and it gives me its list results and I then go into for example either Trades or Equity tabs for the list of stock symbols my backtest filter had found and if I want to go into a specific stock on the listing your system normally gives me its chart with the shaded times when my backtest bought the stock and when it either sold it or time ran out (3 months lets say). My problem is, the chart function is not working. All it gives me is some skeletal information and thats it, no chart comes up.

Can you look into this situation and get back to me. This function has been working (many months) just fine for as long as you came in with this newer version of your backtest. Now it doesn't work. And no, I haven't changed a thing with my computer system. It has to be on your end. All other functions of your system that I know of work ok just not the backtest charting results showing individual stocks and their charts. I tried several stocks in my backtest listing and none worked.

Thank you and hopefully you can get back to me on what you find out.

FOR SHORT TERM or LONGER TERM TRADES. Always be attentive to the weekly macd(12,26,9) Fast and Slow lines slope. If you buy off this particular filters stock picks be careful not to pick too soon as it crests and heads downward according to its weekly macd(12,26,9) reading.

You can use this filter's selections only when its weekly macd(12,26,9) upward slope is not peaking (nearing its exhaustion level) or if its been sloping downward long enough to give you some safety that it could be nearing its downward exhaustion level. Always remember you want to catch the weekly macd(12,26,9) as its accelerating upwards or when its nearing exhaustion on its downslope or as it is climbing out of its downward slope and beginning its upward ascent.

As the weekly macd(12,26,9) climbs play the upward acceleration by buying any dips per your weekly slow stochastic(5,5) tool. Meaning when the weekly slow stochastic(5,5) %K is below a level of your choice (like say under 25) and the weekly slow stochastic(5,5) %K is crossing above slow stochastic(5,5) %D you then buy more shares. For longer term plays, you play this stock until its weekly macd(12,26,9) crosses above 80 or whatever high mark number you like then sell it. Or, if you are a shorter term trader you sell when the weekly slow stochastic(5,5) %K crosses above the 80 or whatever your high mark number you like partial shares until the longer weekly macd(12,26,9)Fast line begins to decline (exhaust itself).

The last paragraph above concerning being alert for the selected stock (picked by your filter) on when the weekly macd(12,26,9)Fast Line and Slow Line is beginning to truly exhaust itself and begin its trek downward is by visual observance. Your filter you wrote here is nice but be aware of the stocks exhaustion level (when to sell) via its shorter term weekly slow stochastic(5,5) %K and %D and the longer term weekly macd(12,26,9)Fast and Slow Lines. To embed one or both of those measurements into your said filter is ok on its BUY basis but when SELLING you will need to use visual obervance when selling. Unless of course you make a special "sell" filter that you would symlist these specific buys that your filter selected then watch that for selling purposes.

Sorry to be so long with my explanation but I just wanted you to be aware. Thank you for taking the time to read it all.

Wait for a buy on Twitter after its price falls down to more reasonable levels. Wait 6 weeks or so? Before then it's like riding a wild roller coaster ride at the amusement park.
