the current announcer/precursor system on my excel "workbench" now has a name... the "SoniQ BOOM system"
here is my goal, in a nutshell...
to produce a set of 8 pick 3 combos to play based on the most frequent announcers but having the prequalified by the most frequent precursors. Basically, I am taking announcer theory and grafting it onto a binary filter system (such as v-trac strings or H/L,O/E) to extract 8 straight picks. AND, since it is locked by position, it will be an easy migration to pick4, should success warrant such a migration.
I have a list of the most frequent announcers, and the most frequent precursors. I have a history file with ALL ofPA's evening 3 digit data since 3/1/1977 for backtesting.
Several hurdles stand between idea and backtesting, but I have a ton of ideas to try. Named Ranges made it 100% easier!
