questions for TJ: Screening symbols dynamically in EL

Postby nuno-online » 10 Feb 2015

Hi TJ

i read this topic in the forum: Screening symbols dynamically in EL?
http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/v ... hilit=RANK

I have questions about this:
1. you have to use ADE for sure.

OK
2. you have to collect the momentum rating from the 20 stocks,
OK
... send the data to a central array
can you tell me more about that central array?
Does i have to send data in another indicator before rank and sort them?

..
. then rank them...
... then sort them
... then select the top 5 and set the condition to "ShouldITradeThisSymbol = TRUE".
thank you

Nuno

I was referring to an array created using ADE.

You easily can do sort or other data manipulation in the array.

depending on the complexity of your strategy,
you might be able to do it with GV.

In the thread you quoted, those were my initial thoughts.
Thoughts only. Not even plans or trials.


Other options are available too. eg. to export the data to an excel worksheet, massage the data to get to your decision criteria, then somehow get your strategy to trigger a trade based on your decision.

All these talks were before the portfolio trading days. Things might work differently today.


You have to first layout your plans -- clearly and concretely decide what you want to achieve, then proceed with your resources accordingly.
