I don't use the global filter.

I don't import. I copy/paste.

If you look around, you never know what you may find.

But that list is copyrighted, so it can't be identified as such.

For the best systems, its about probabilities. Expectancy=opportunity*avg. trade. Or something like that. But you get the point.

So regardless of whether one is taking every trade returned by the filter, if enough trades are taken, he can expect over time to reach the win/loss ratio and avg. net change indicated by backtesting.

I prefer to start all tests with the most general parameters, allowing the max number of positions and max number of trades per day. I like the largest sample sizes as they tend to offer the most statistical significance. From there, some optimization is nice to lower the amount of filter results to an amount that is realistic for my trading style.

Hi Woodshedder:

That is ONE approach and it has its merits.

One the other hand, instead of tweaking the method to the stocks, I find the best stocks for the method. Makes it easier, for me, to trade.

I surely don't play every result.

I am reading a candlestick charting book right now, and so I''ve decided to focus on bullish reversals. My filter ensures a downtrend, and then looks for one of 15 bullish candlestick patterns that are already coded into stockfetcher. Some of the patterns I have in there are not reversal patterns...but trend continuation's no matter to me I look at each play before I make it. I have something in there for RSI and STO, and I used to have a provision in there for the MACD, but taking that provision out only adds 2 resutls to my filter, so I got rid of it for now.

As of now, my filter returns about 20 stocks a day. Of those, I look for the most promising reversals. The pattern itself is important, so I always look at the candles themselves first. Then I look at the STO and RSI to see how they are doing. I do not require the STO to be in a particular zone (like below 30)...rather, I ask that the %K line be below the %D line anytime within the past 2 days.

My filter is designed to filter out the stocks that I DON'T want to play...I still have to look at each one and make the decision to buy on an individual case-by-case basis.
