Can we get the syntax for this:


Show stocks where price is 1% less than or equal to the previous days close
and/or stocks where price is less than or equal to 1% above the previous days close

I believe "and/or" may be an issue

Thanks!

Cacher and everyone else, thanks for your help

Here is my filter with some of the things you added. This is still in the works. I am also trying to get syntax for the following to add to the filter:

Show stocks where price is 1% less than or equal to the previous days close
and/or stocks where price is less than or equal to 1% above the previous days close

I am trying to catch shooting stars here but want my syntax to be more robust so that I am not only returning results for doji's as that would likely have very few returns (thus the 1% above or below previous days close syntax)

I use the filter when I believe the market is near a top. If you run the filter around 3 o'clock and the stock is trading just below the previous days close and you have somewhat of a doji forming at the top of what was a pretty good run for the last couple of days and strong volume, momentum is likely changing and you have a short candidate going into the next day. I usually place a stop slightly above the high of the day of entry.

Again, your help has been appreciated. Let me know your thoughts!


Show 5 day slope of DMA(28,-14)
and DMA(28,-14)is more than 3% below close
and EMA(13) is above DMA(28,-14)

and price near top linear regression line(100)
and price above 5.00

avgvol(90) > 300000

/* Volume 75% above average volume(90) within the last 5 days */
set{av90,average volume(90)}
set{abve75,av90*1.75}

set{highVOLin5days,count(volume greater then abve75,5)}

/* if highVOLin5days is greater then 0 then it happened */
show stocks where highVOLin5days is greater then 0

/* now test if OVERBOUGHT */
and Slow Stochastic(5,5) Fast %K is greater then 82

add column highVOLin5days

Welliot, the filter is still not returning the desired results even with me removing today equals 1

Anyone else want to try and take a stab at this?

Welliot, I just ran your syntax with my filter and it seems to only be returning results where the avg. volume(90) was above 75% for the present day not above 75% for any of the preceding 5 days including the current. day.......

Trendscanner and Welliot thanks for your help!

Did we figure it out? I am looking for the volume to be ABOVE 75% as your syntax says below but that is just a simple error....

Please let me know if this returns the needed results. I will post the full scan if this is correct and it will post some great shorts at there top. We know this market can't go up forever and I would luv to share my filter now when I think we are reaching a top.

Again, your help has been appreciated!

Yeah, it seems simple but not so much.

Can anyone else out there figure this out?

Thanks!

Hello, what is the proper syntax for the following:

Volume 75% above average volume(90) within the last 5 days


What I am looking for here is for volume to be 75% above the average volume(90). I would like to find stocks that have had this volume increase for any of the last 5 trading days (including the current day)

Your help is appreciated!

Can someone tell me the correct syntax for the following:

volume more than 75% above average volume(90) within the last 3 days

The part that I think is incorrect is within the last 3 days. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

BVF gets approval....watch this one really move now. AS214 please contact me at wirthowitz@aol.com I have a bunch of questions for you in regards to your value trading strategy. I have been using it since mid January with nice results. I bought BONT at 4.75 on 1/21/08 and is now trading at around $8.00. Also bought JCP at $36 on 1/18/08 and is now trading at about $41 and traded as high as $51. I just want to compare notes. I added BVF yesterday at $10.5. Regards,
Adam
