I have downloaded and am playing with IncredibleCharts. As a novice I like the look of their Stock Screening ability as it can narrow down the search criteria and/or choices for me.
My problem is that if I narrow down the seach to much, to aggresive with the criteria, you get very few results (this could be a good thing!?). Also being purely based on Technicals any results obtained are reactive not proactive!
Having said that what are the best criteria for picking up the beginning of a trend??? There are quite a few options, such as: Price Filter, Volume, % of Price High, % Price Move, Bollinger Bands standard deviation, Directional Movement system, Moving Average Crossovers etc etc etc.
But which ones to pick????? I am concerned that simply getting a result, based on historical (or is that hysterical) data means I may have missed the boat and the trend is over!
Any suggestions as to the best stock screening criteria?????
