When H=L, then C=H=L and the result is the indeterminate 0/0. Adding the usual .001 to the denominator would be appropriate.

I believe V*(2*C-H-L)/(H-L) is the only correct form. The intent is to accumulate an "earned volume" in the range
-V < earned volume < +V. The end points of the range occur when C=L and C=H respectively. Also, when H=L, then C=H=L and the result is the indeterminate 0/0. Therefore, it would be appropriate to add the usual .001 in the denominator.

My understanding is that hedge funds, mutual funds, and major institutions use the 50 sma for trading and the 200sma trend to determine bull/bear trends.
Securities transitioning rapidly thru the 200 sma are usually driven these large institutions.

I believe you are looking for this:

<a href="">Winning Stock Selection Simplified - Vol II PCF Video</a>

The PCFs are listed at the bottom of the page you get when you follow the link.

This is a useful video to refer to. Could you add it to the training video/tutorial list so it can be easily found in the future?

Try this:

Bruce: Just curious ... is this truly a linear slope? Is it derived from minimum mean squared error?

Topic: a newbie looking for some advice

Plenty of good newbie advice above. Regarding backtesting ... there is a "kluge" approach. Assuming you can describe your desired "signal" in a PCF form, use "percent true" to identify past points in charts to examine how your "signal" behaved. Cumbersome ... but better than visual searching.

I appreciate your response ... it does give me a sense of what is achievable. I am focusing on improving my entry/exit/capital protection strategies as you point out in your post. I find the posts from experienced traders quite useful. Please keep them coming.

Big Block:
I asked the question of you because based on your postings, you appear to be a very knowledgeable and competent trader. Therefore, your success could be considered representative for an accomplished trader. For beginners as myself, you are a "guage" of my progress in contrast to the boasts of others claiming > 80% or 90% profitable trades with high reward/risk ratios. So take my question as a complement.
