Consistent trend - A smooth takeoff
Lets say you were more interested in a good gain, with a very low deviation from the trend over a period. For example equity A and B both rise 7% in a month but A is a nice smooth line and B is very "wobbly". How would you scan for a smooth accent like A? Enclosed two graphs A (progressive) is steady compared to B (canfor) I would want to screen for the steadier uptrend. I am guessing it would be something like a SMA(90) of a STD deviation, or a PPO of a set up SMA lines, or even a novel twist on the Aroon . . . In short I am looking for equities that have just a nice straight line from lower left to upper right, how would you write that scan?
