10% Drop Pullback

High Probability Trading with the Delphian Studies

A pullback is a small to moderate drop in a stock price from recent peaks that occurs during an uptrend.  Delphian finds stocks in pullbacks that have met our conservative pullback target (State 2, Target 1) and have had a 10%-25% price drop within the past 10 days.  Backtesting revealed this signal is triggered near the end of the pullback and to expect the stock to resume the trend higher soon after. 


Trade Theory:

Most often when a stock transitions from State 1 to State 2, the stock is in a temporary pull back. Once the State 2, target 1 has been hit, the stock has a high potential for a reversal.  A secondary confirmation used with this signal is a quick price drop.  Price drops over a short period of time can be seen as an over-reaction to news or some external market event. Drops that happen suddenly are usually tested by reversals. If the stock has experienced a significant drop over a short period and hit the State 2 target, then there is potential price support and a probable reversal coming in the near future.

The 10% Drop in 10 Days study uses the following signals:

  • A price drop from 10-25% over a 10-day period
  • State Modeling™ set to State 2, target 1 met

Explanation of the signals:

1.  Price change between -10% to -25% over the past 10 days is a signal that displays stocks that have experienced a significant drop in price over a short period of time.

2.  State Modeling™ is a proprietary signal from Delphian Trading. Stocks are in a State numbered from 1 to 8 at any given time and only in one state at a time. States 1, 3, 5 and 7 are bullish and States 2, 4, 6 and 8 are bearish. State 1 is extremely bullish while State 8 is extremely bearish. This signal allows users to find symbols based on their current state, current state profit and loss targets and whether or not their current targets or stops losses have been met.
