Which Strategy?

How does everyone determine which strategy works the best with which stocks?
Update Backtest








Generally speaking mean reversion strategies work better with volatile stocks, as the assumption is the short term peaks will revert to be sold for profit. Volatility can be measured in many different ways including ATR (Average True Range) or the width of Bollinger Bands a sense.

Depending on how you implement your code trend following strategies can also be implemented on volatile stocks. "Scalping" would essentially be a short-term-trend-follower which enters on a burst of momentum.

Though its my hunch a long term trend follower is easiest when the stock has low volatility since you can better detect when it deviates from the trend.
