If I want to find stocks which have a tail of at least 2 x the body, how would I do that? (aside from pattern matching function, which I haven't had much success with).

You'll need two separate filters for this. One for up days and another for down days.

Up Days:
open minus low is more than 100 above close minus open
and close is above open
add column open minus low
add column close minus open

Down Days:
close minus low is more than 100 above open minus close
and open is above close
add column close minus low
add column open minus close

We're looking to add a Head/Tail/Body measure to simplify this query as well as eliminate the need for two separate filters. Also, we are definitely looking into the "Or" clause which would allow the combination of these.

i am glad you and the team are still pursuing the "or" conjunction project
