Can someone point me to a filter that the primary decision point is on a change in direction of COG?

COG appears to be an almost perfect pivot point tool. If I am wrong about this please educate me.

I have spent hours looking at filters containing COG, but they all seem to be a small component of filters that are looking for bottom bouncer or short filters.

Can anyone suggest the text for such a filter?

Thanks Mike

sfPOSDiv(WILLIAMS %R(2),COG(5,2) ,2,5) crossed above .5
COUNT(WILLIAMS %R(2) < -85,3) > 0

avg vol(90) > 2000000


I have had cog(5,2) on my charts in the past. Seemed like a good indicator to me.
I guess you could just ask for "cog(5,2) 1 day ago is below cog(5,2)"
The filter above highligts POT a while back and looks to anticipate cog(5,2) turning
using a divergence between "it" and williams %r(2) ( which usually changes direction
before rsi(2).
What I dont get about the filter above is that it does not seem to AND the requirement williams %r(2) below -85.

This seems to cause many crossses/spikes above .5 that I dont want.....

Good topic ......I hope others take a look at cog(5,2) and comment or build a filter to your liking.

Thanks FourtyFour:

Here is what I came up with. Two filters, one looking for reversals from tops and the second for bottom bouncers.

They are very rudimentary at this point in time but I am starting to get a couple of returns that interest me.

Any suggestions or additions to this are welcome. The backtesting on this was 46/54. Not very good.

Filter Name: COG Bottom Bounce
r[COG(9) had been decreasing for 10 days 1 days ago and COG(9) has been increasing for 2 days]
close above close 2 days ago
show stocks where the MACD Fast Line(12,26) 0 days ago crossed above the MACD Slow Line(12,26) 0 days ago
