Primary rule based on rank only

StrataSearch will find what you tell it to, but what should that be? Will the same criteria work across different Sectors? Different time periods? Here we discuss the ins and outs of OneClick Searches.

Primary rule based on rank only

Postby WebX99 » Thu Aug 09, 2012 12:34 pm

I am testing selecting securities based on rank only.
So I setup a custom Autosearch primary rule like the screenshots show below.
Notice how I setup the ENTRY string and EXIT string to force it to take every trade.
The exit string is Close >10000 to force it to exit on Friday when the options expired based on Daysheld, Dayofweek.
Then in the Rank Selection tab I am optimizing the SVI.
Is there a better way to setup a primary rule just for rank selection? :?:
So much to learn! :lol:

I usually use.

entry string:
1 = 1

exit string:
1 = 2

Since the entry will always happen and the exit will never happen. It also is faster processing a static number than a price value.

That's correct. Primary Entry and Exit Strings cannot be blank, so Jaded's approach is how most StrataSearch users handle it.
