I noticed that my Aggressive Long and Short Strategies open positions
a lot of times after the stocks have already made big moves in the
direction I plan to be going in.

For instance,

The stock is already up $1.92 on the open, then my strategy opens a long
position. Consequently, when the stock comes back down, I get stopped
out at a loss.

I am adding these rules to my strategies to not go into positions
that have already moved too much already.

Aggressive Long Strategy:

On Tab(1): Change Max Symbols to Purchase from 20 to 5

On Tab(3): "CurrentAskPrice is -.25 less than Yesterdays Close Price"

(this means the stock cannot be any more than .25 above yesterdays close price)

Aggressive Short Strategy:

On Tab(1): Change Max Symbols to Purchase from 20 to 5

On Tab(3): "CurrentBidPrice is -.25 greater than Yesterdays Close Price"

(this means the stock cannot be any more than .25 below yesterdays close price)

You brought up a really good point George and I think it is especially important on the Short strategy. I am going with the same idea but stretching it out to the last 2 days. I will have to watch that for awhile and see if .25 is the optimum number.

I am adding to my Tab(3):

Todays Current Bid Price is at least -.25 greater than the Lowest Price During Previous 2 Days

I’ve also changed on the Profit Limits tab the Stop Loss and Trailing Stop Loss values to $2.00 up from $1.50.

I am curious about the change on the Max Symbols from 20 down to 5? Is it just to reduce your exposure?

Thanks, Glen.

  • 'Robo' investment advice can't automate hopes and dreams
    The Australian Financial Review
    Technology has come along to disrupt financial planning, in the form of online "robo-advice" tools. In the US, robo-advice tools ask customers about their income, life stage, risk appetite and investment funds, and then algorithms allocate customer money to products that match their profile. "Robo-advice is better than no advice, provided that there's the appropriate disclosures, and people know what they're getting through these robo-advice propositions", says Ian Pollari, head of banking in Australia at KPMG. On the other hand, good advisers know all about your dreams and aspirations, a lot about your health scenario and family health history - stuff that can't be automated.  More...
