Second ,if you register here:

As I use Tradestation iso Scottrade, I wonder if the HOD functionality could be implemented there? Do you know if some TS users have implemented this or how does it work at Scottrade?

Thanks - SeanBan

I've read this thread and the blog with great interest. There's one thing that's not clear to me and it's the entry.

I found SYNM from the scan and I watched it today. It gapped up quite a bit (5%)? I understand that going green means above yesterday's close. But where does one enter? Would you enter on open? Or put a limit order to enter around the closing price? Entering on open is risky, there could be a pullback. So entering on a pullback is another choice.

The scanning and theories are clear to me, it's just the entries that are confusing.

Thanks for explaining it a bit further for those of us who are a bit slower. :)

set{xRange, high - low}
set{AvgRng, cma(xRange,5) }

set{HiOp, High - Open }
set{RunPCT, HiOp/open }
set{AvgRun5, cma(HiOp,5) }
set{RunTgt, open + AvgRun5 }

set{HiCl, High - Close }
set{PBPCT, HiCl/open }
set{AvgPB5, cma(HiCl,5) }
set{PBTgt, High - AvgPB5 }

set{ClLo, Close - low }
set{BouncePCT, ClLo/open }
set{AvgBounce5, cma(ClLo,5) }
set{BounceTgt, Low + AvgBounce5 }

set{OpLo, Open - low}
set{DropPCT, OpLo/open }
set{AvgDrop5, cma(OpLo,5) }
set{DropTgt, Open - AvgDrop5 }

set{Green, count( close > open , 100)}

set{B10A, count(RunPCT > .10 , 100)}

set{A10A, count(RunPCT > .10 , 1)}
set{chg, sum( A10A - A10A 1 day ago ,5)}

and add column separator
and add column RunTgt
and add column DropTgt
and add column BounceTgt
and add column PBTgt

and add column separator
add column RunPCT{R(today)}

add column PBPCT{P(today)}

add column DropPCT{D(today)}

add column BouncePCT{B(today)}



sort column 1 Ascending

Now you know where to look for entries and exits.

If you enter at/near the open, the RUN TARGET is your TP exit.

You can wait for the price to drop to the DROP TARGET and enter there if price has bottomed and starts to move up. The BOUNCE TARGET will be the exit for this trade.

You can enter at the PULLBACK TARGET after the price has hit the daily high if you think the price will keep going up.

B = BOUNCE ( low to close )

D = DROP ( open to low )

R = RUN ( open to high )

P or PB = PULLBACK ( high to close )

I don't know if you realized it but you can check the TARGETS on ANY STOCK by using the SYMLIST for the SELECTION CRITERIA.

This is a powerful tool.

thx for this code TRO. can you tell me what the rightmost columns mean and how much the values can be expected to change throughout the day (i.e. how often to refresh throughout the day)?

What column(s) are you asking about?

The numbers change if a new high/low is made otherwise static.

But you have to wait for the market to be open to get today's targets because the filter uses the current open to compute the targets.

I wrote a version for TradeStation so I have the numbers in real time.

Since the StockFetcher data is delayed, and the number you want quickly is average drop from open.... rather than wait 20 minutes, I added column AvgDrop5. That way you can use whatever you use for real-time quotes and calculate the drop target manually. Additionally, if you want to do your numbers at eod, like I do sometimes, just change the whole thing to use yesterday's close (instead of today's open), something like:

set{YClLo, Close 1 day ago - low} /* was OPEN */
set{DropPCT, YClLo/Close 1 day ago } /* was OPEN */
set{AvgDrop5, cma(YClLo,5) }
set{DropTgt, Close 1 day ago - AvgDrop5 }
