That's basically what I have been doing. Waiting till it drops back to the ema(10) to buy. Can't get any consistency. Some times it works, some times it doesn't. I tend to buy the ones where it doesn't. Can't find any indicator to weed out the don't work ones.

As they say: Wall Street wants you to buy Low - Sell High , because it does not work.
What works is : Buy High- Sell higher. ( buy into strength) .
Please, See the link here for a study on buying 52 week highs with a trailing stop of 5,10,15% , done on the Dow 30 stocks. Simple , set it and forget it.
KISS.

Interesting read on the 52 week high backtest. I'll have to look into this.

@dtatu A caveat on that 52-week high strategy if you read to the end

"A trader will need to be able to endure long stretches of sideways (no performance) for months and even years at a time if they plan to trade this type of strategy. This is something we discuss more in the video."

Yes; usually in “trend following “ you make your money for the year in 2-3 months . The rest, you’re in a drawdown. Do not forget: this is the Dow 30 stocks which have a high correlation with the “ stock market( S&P) .
You should make a symlist /watchlist of uncorrelated assets.They don’t go down all together.( Ex: commodities: they have almost all equivalent ETFs , at present). Sugar ( Cane) , uranium( URNM/URA), Nat Gas( UNL), etc etc. Avoid having, besides SPY , anything with a correlation of more than .7?
I’m almost certain it should work , with less lengthy drawdowns.

To clarify,the intent of this filter is not to buy at 52wk lows.The intent is to identify stocks breaking out above a (10) day ma on higher than normal volume,an abrupt change of direction/demand.It's intended to be a 1-4 day swing trade at best.That's the story.Mikeranz....

OK.My own experience in system trading ( 20 yrs+),did never produce a positive expectancy in this situation( Daily only, in a weekly +/- Monthly downtrend).
It only worked when I confirmed the same trend in 2-3different Time frames( d-wk-monthly).
But ,of course , I might very well have missed things.
“Buy High,sell Higher” (in at least 2 , ideally 3 time frames).
Basically: buy daily dips in a strong weekly and monthly trend.( personal opinion,of course)
