If you are gonna take any trade, the clearest channel i see is GE from 26.75 riding up to $29. Maybe take a gander at it.

Thanks PT!

I'm still trying to figure out a script that will give me the sticks that would cycle ( up or down) a certain amount of time.

Kevin suggested ROC but I still haven't figured out that puzzle yet....

A script that will count how many times a stock hit stoch (5,2) at 80 and 20 over the past 6 months for example...

Right now, I'm still struggling shifting thru the forum threads for a simple code wherein it would count how many times a stock has gone up "x" percent over "y" timeframe.


That is what the ROC function does - for example, say you want to see how many times over the last 100 days stocks within the S&P 500 have gone up more than 5 percent in the last 5 days

Fetcher[
S&P 500
set{answer, count(ROC(5,1) above 5, 100)}
add column answer
sort on column 5 descending
]



You will see that the results list the number of times each stock has met this criterion, with the highest frequency at the top of the list.

To do this we use the count() function to tabulate the number of times each stock had a ROC(5,1) greater than 5 - the rate of change over the last five days being above 5 percent.

LVS didn't follow thru upwards; sold. Good thing I covered FB. Note to self...don't play stocks with earnings coming up!

Still have SCO and didn't add yet. Picked up GASX. Watching CLVS.
