Dr. Stoxx's Trend Trading Toolkit

Dr. Stoxx’s Trend Trading Toolkit combines some of the most popular trending technical analysis indicators into one powerful add-on featuring explorations, expert advisors, and templates.

Dr. Stoxx’s time-tested strategies will help you identify entry positions in trending instruments. In addition to identifying entry points, this toolkit also identifies proper stop losses and target levels for your trades. It includes two real-time strategies for use with MetaStock R/T, nine strategies designed for a daily time frame, 13 explorations, and six templates. Two pre-filter explorations are also included, helping you find high beta stocks ideal for trading.

Dr. Stoxx’s Trend Trading Toolkit is designed to be used on instruments with price and volume data. These strategies are designed to be used mainly on North American and Canadian stocks.

  • Included Explorations (13 total):
    • Blue Sky Breakout - Longs - Isolates stocks in an established uptrend that have made a new short-term (40 trading days) price high. This scan works best in bullish markets.
    • Bullish Base Breakout - Longs - Isolates stocks in an established downtrend which have formed a consolidation base at an area of support for the past 6 weeks of trading. This scan works well in all market types.
    • Bullish Coiled Spring – Longs - Isolates stocks in an established uptrend that have printed a new 3–month price high within the past 20 trading days. Following the new price high, these stocks have consolidated under the high into an increasingly narrow trading range. This scan works best in bullish markets.
    • Bullish Divergence – Longs - Isolates stocks in a long-range uptrend with price dipping to close below the 50 sma. This scan works best in bullish markets.
    • Pullback – Longs - Isolates stocks in an established uptrend with price dipping to close near, but not below, the 50 sma. This scan works best in bullish markets.
    • Rising Wedge Breakdown – Shorts - Isolates stocks in an established uptrend that have formed a consolidation wedge at an area of resistance for the past 6 weeks of trading. This scan works best in bearish markets.
    • Bearish Coiled Spring – Shorts - Isolates stocks in an established downtrend which have printed a new 3–month price low within the past 20 trading days. Following that new price low, these stocks have consolidated above the low into an increasingly narrow trading range. This scan works best in bearish markets.
    • Bearish Divergence – Shorts - Isolates stocks in a long-range downtrend with price rising to close above the 50 sma. This scan works best in bearish markets.
    • Blue Sea Breakdown – Shorts - Isolates stocks in an established downtrend that have made a new short-term (40 trading days) price low. This scan works best in bearish markets.
    • Gap Down – Shorts - Isolates stocks in a strong uptrend, which have just printed a new 3-month price high, and then gap down on the open without filling that gap before the close. This scan works best with stocks that are trading down on company specific news like disappointing earnings or an analyst downgrade. This scan works best in bearish markets.
    • Relief Rally – Shorts - Isolates stocks in an established downtrend with price rallying to close near, but not above, the 50 sma. This scan works best in bearish markets.
      This exploration is Dr. Carr’s most profitable scan but is not featured in any publication. He has been teaching it for several years in seminars.
    • Mean Reversion – Longs and Shorts - Isolates both long and short candidates with the same scan. It looks for stocks trading significantly outside their Bollinger Bands on higher than average volume and at least 10% above or below the 20 sma, coupled with an extreme CCI reading. Further work should be done on passing candidates to make sure that price is at or near key levels of support (for longs) or resistance (for shorts).
    • Pre-Filter Hi-Beta Scan for Watchlist - Builds a watch list of stocks which can be further studied for trading opportunities. It isolates the best stocks for trading by filtering out only those stocks which are sufficiently liquid, trading above a certain price level (to avoid penny stocks), and which are significantly more volatile than the S&P 500.
