This
system is based on Money Flow Index . It is a developing
system and will like input from other readers to improve
it> Thanks for any suggestions to improve it.
It
tries to buy when MFI is starting to rally from an oversold
state and sells short when MFI starts falling from overbought
state.
Can
any body help to form an exploration to find stocks for
whom this system will work best ?
EnterLong:
Cross(MFI(23), (LLV(MFI(23),23) + opt1)) AND MFI(23)<50
closeLong:
MFI(23)=LLV(MFI(23),23)
longOptimisationFullDetails:
OPT 1 = Min. 5 Max. 20 Step: 1
enterShort:
Cross( (HHV(MFI(23),23)  opt1), MFI(23))AND MFI(23)>50
closeShort:
MFI(23)=HHV(MFI(23),23)

{EnterLong
and Close Short}
BBHistogram:= (CLOSE + 2*Std(CLOSE,20) 
Mov(CLOSE,20,SIMPLE)) / (4*(Std(CLOSE,20)))
* 100;
Cross(0,BBHistogram)
{Enter Short and Close Long}
BBHistogram:= (CLOSE + 2*Std(CLOSE,20) 
Mov(CLOSE,20,SIMPLE)) / (4*(Std(CLOSE,20)))
* 100;
Cross(BBHistogram,100)
Here's a "freebie".
BB Histogram:
((C+2*Std(C,20)Mov(C,20,S))/(4*(Std(C,20)))*100)
Sell the opening days after the BB Histogram penetrates
100 and buy when it penetrates zero. Add to positions when
the BB Histo leaves "above 100" or "below zero" and then
"repenetrates" the trigger levels.
I believe this approach has recorded 11 straight S&P
winners, with 700+ points. "But Steve, this system must
not be working any more because it is losing the last trade
you put on". Right!
My only disclaimer is that I guarantee that I will sell
software, charting services and anything else that I can
think of to make a "buck" in 2000. In the meantime, suck
all the free stuff from me you can copy. And most of all,
please note, the biggest antagonists on the list provide
absolutely "zero" when it comes to helping you trade. Seek
the answers from "within" (with some shortcutting help from
people that are willing to share).

MetaStock
formula derived from calculations in Trading Systems and
Methods, Third Edition, by Perry J. Kaufman.
This formula adapts the standard RSI to a smoothing constant.
Period := Input("Period",1,10000,20);
sc := Abs(RSI(Period)/100  .5)*2;
If(Cum(1) <= Period, CLOSE,
PREV + sc*(CLOSE  PREV))

I
was only able to implement Krausz's Gann Swing HiLow Activator
in Metastock,
because it's simply the average of the last three bars High
(stop for short position or
long entry) or Low (stop for long position or short entry)
plotted one period forward:
Ref(Mov(L,3,S),1) or Ref(Mov(H,3,S),1)

The
Kurtosis is a market sentiment indicator. The MetaStock
formula for the Kurtosis is as follows:
Mov(Mov(Mo(3)Ref(Mo(3),1),66,E),3,S)
The
Kurtosis is constructed from three different parts. The
Kurtosis, the Fast Kurtosis(FK), and the Fast/Slow Kurtosis(FSK).
The
Kurtosis(K) portion of this calculation is mo(3)ref(mo(3),1).
Which is today's Kurtosis  yesterday's Kurtosis.
The
Fast Kurtosis(FK) is mov(K,66,E) mov(mo(3)ref(mo(3),1,66,E).
Which is the Kurtosis smoothed with a 66 period exponential
moving average.
The
Fast/Slow Kurtosis(FSK) is the complete formula mov(mov(mo(3)ref(mo(3),1),66,E),3,S).
Which is the FK smoothed with 3 period simple moving average.
**You may want to experiment with different time periods
to optimize the results. For example, to calculate a 4 period
Kurtosis, a 50 period FK and a 10 period FSK, use the following
formula:
mov(mov(mo(4)ref(mo(4),1),50,E),10,S)

Keltner
Channels are explained in the book The New Commodity
Trading System and Methods by Perry Kaufman and were
first introduced in the book How To Make Money in Commodities,
by Chester W. Keltner. The syntax for the formulas in MetaStock
are:
Formula
#1 
Name:
The 10Day Moving Average 
Formula:
MOV( (H+L+C)/3, 10, Simple ) 

Formula
#2 
Name:
Upper Keltner Band 
Formula:
MOV((H+L+C)/3,10,S) + MOV((HL),10,S) 

Formula
#3 
Name:
Lower Keltner Band 
Formula:
MOV((H+L+C)/3,10,S)  MOV((HL),10,S) 

**
All three formulas must be plotted.
In the System Tester, a BUY or a COVER SHORT Signal would
occur when
C
> Upper Keltner Band
and
a SELL or a SELL SHORT Signal would occur when
C
< Lower Keltner Band
**
Thus, the system is always either long or short.
For interpretation refer to either of the two books listed
above.
