Modified Sharpe index screener

Modified Sharpe index screener

This screener uses a modified Sharpe index to identify stocks with a strong momentum. The rules are as follows:

1. screen the markets and select the strongest 20-30 stocks (the first stocks on the screener are the strongest)
2. buy those stocks position-sizing them based on the Yhang-Zhan variation of Garman-Klass volatility (indicator I posted previously) :
3. after 3 months run the same procedure and get rid of the stocks that are out of the first tier of the list and get the new entries


3. hold the stocks for 1 year and then sell.

I’ve been using this portfolio for 6 years now and the average gain of the folio was excellent for me. You can improve the profit by buying at the SMA60 point.

Blue skies!!

    @Gabri, what average yearly return % have you been able to manage using this approach?

    • gabri • 09/13/2017 #

      I used this system for the last 13 years approximately and I got a Compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 23%. Using also some fundamentals you can get more though.

    @Gabri with an ROI track record like that you should be a fund manager 🙂

    • gabri • 09/13/2017 #

      I just read back my post….I made cagr of approx 13% in the last 13 years… sorry 🙂 now I understand why you mentioned the fund manager 🙂 sorry.

    I would need way more than that for being a found manager 🙂

    Hello, who can help me why the screener does not work
    // Der folgende Code bezieht sich auf den Zeitraum:daily
    indicator1 = SuperTrend[2.5,10]
    c1 = (close > indicator1)

    // Der folgende Code bezieht sich auf den Zeitraum:1 hour
    TIMEFRAME(1 hour)
    indicator2 = SuperTrend[2.5,10]
    c2 = (close > indicator2)

    // Der folgende Code bezieht sich auf den Zeitraum:15 minutes
    TIMEFRAME(15 minutes)
    indicator3 = SuperTrend[2.5,10]
    c3 = (close > indicator3)

    SCREENER[c1 AND c2 AND c3]

    It works when I launch it. Try to change the last row as follow:
    SCREENER[c1 AND c2 AND c3] ( c3 as “ref”)

    Complimenti Gabri era da un po’ che volevo provare a far un screener ed una metodologia come descrivi tu per periodi piĂą lunghi ed holdare i titoli.. pensavo piĂą su un paniere di etfs.
    Thanks Garbri, I was thinking about this kind selection methodology for some time. Ale

    con ETF to consiglio anche uno screener basato su questa strategia . Il price index a 6 mesi e
    molto efficace, secondo me, con ETF.

  9. Alex975 • 09/13/2017 #

    Grazie della dritta.. testerò il tutto.

  10. guillermus69 • 09/13/2017 #

    is this ” a= log(close/close[1])” better than a = ((close/close[1]) -1) *100 . I want to capture the daily returns in % ?Âż?Âż?Âż?Âż?
