Where can I find info on how to write exit filters for my scans? Any examples of exit filters would be helpful. Thanks.

I don't know your entry criteria...


1. exit when close crosses over a moving average :: close crossed above ema(5)
2. exit when rsi crosses above a value :: rsi(2) crossed above 29
3. exit with a profit or number of days :: .25 profit or 3 days since buy

Another approach is to set a traiking stop-loss on your picks. O'Neill recommends 8%, but I've found the market too volatile; others recomend from 5% to 10%. For my style of trading (buy Monday at open, sell Friday at 3:30) that a 5% loss works well.
