How do you compile the "Top 20 Gap Fillers"

Postby rebkwez » Sat Oct 27, 2007 8:26 pm

TRO,
Hi, Just want to tell you I've been a follower of your site for a while an it's great. Question, I've searched the forum and noticed that the "Top 20 Gap Fillers" keep changing, which makes sense. How do you determine which stocks make the list?

Also, It's hard to trade all 20 stocks for gap fills, for a newbie starting out with this method, how should I go about selecting 1 or 2 of these stocks to trade? Just pick any 2 in a price range that's good for me?

Thanks,
Elliot

Q. How do you determine which stocks make the list?

A. I run the FADING THE GAP STATISTICS filter that I posted on www.stockfetcher.com

Q. Also, It's hard to trade all 20 stocks for gap fills, for a newbie starting out with this method, how should I go about selecting 1 or 2 of these stocks to trade? Just pick any 2 in a price range that's good for me?

A. Forget about trading all 20... ALL YOU NEED TO TRADE IS ONE!! Pick the one that fits your budget and trading style. Practice with 100 shares. If after a week, you're in the black, trade 200. When you reach 1,000 shares you'll be making $400 or more a day on average. That's $100k a year.

The above radarscreen shows what these stocks did on Friday.

The below radarscreen shows just how good the cows are at giving you $.50 a trade.

Can you explain the _SMAA_MTC_Checker screen. Is it just checking to see if there was a min opportunity to get a .50 profit?

I loaded it in TS and am getting a Wrong Interval error under the message field any idea how to fix this?

Thanks for the help

A. The MTC Checker tells you how many times the high - open was at least $.50

Q. I loaded it in TS and am getting a Wrong Interval error under the message field any idea how to fix this?

A. Use the DAILY INTERVAL.

Thanks TRO I was able to get it working by changing interval to daily.

One more question on the SMA_MTC_Checker--Just to clarify when looking at the image posted on page 1 of this thread when looking at the first line FSLR does the HIOp number 92 mean that of the last 101 gap ups that 92 of them were at least a .50 gap and then OpLo number of 93 mean the last 101 gap downs 93 were at least .50?

Thanks for the help

A. This is not GAP UPs!!! FSLR went up from Open to High by $.50 or more 92 days out of the last 101 days.

Where can I download the SMA_MTC_Checker code? I downloaded Motherloads, but don't see it in there.
Thanks in advance,
Ken
