Different issue - do the SF folks know that -- add column separator -- no longer works?

Can anyone tell me why line 2 of this doesn't work? I'm trying to count the number of days the volume is 20% more than the 50 day average volume

set { VolUp, Volume(50) * 1.2 }
set { VolUpDays, Count(VolUp, 50) }

Mac:

Note the flat run followed by two up days with increasing volume. That's exactly what I want. I just want to be able to specify how many days flat, before the two up days.

Mac

That is exactly what I'm looking for. I want to be able to set the number of days flat and then pick up a breakout up. I've searched around but couldn't find anything, but I'll look again.

Hey guys - none of this seems to be bringing me any closer to my goal. I'm trying to find stocks that have been sitting in a very narrow bollinger price range for a period of time, and have broken out of it on an upward trend with increasing volume in the past 2-3 days. I know how to write all the volume and price stuff, but I can't seem to find a way to get the narrow bollinger range up to a point 2-3 days ago. Has anyone seen a filter that will do this.

Anyone have any input on this. I'm still trying to get a working filter. ......... Jim

First bollinger line above should read 13 days ago

I Tried again with filter below, but I don't understand how SF works with this. The differential does not seem to produce expected result and the result seems to be totally unpredicable.

/* 09-22/15 Try 3 -- Bollinger Band consolidation and breakout */

/* Calculate and display price adjusted volume */
set { Adj_Vol, Volume(20) * close(20) }
set { DollarVol, Round(Adj_Vol) }
add column DollarVol { Dollar Volume }
and add column separator

/* Market and Sector information */
and add column exchange {exch}
and add column sector {sect}
and add column industry {Indust}
and add column separator
and add column bollinger diff(20,1.5) {BBdiff }

show stocks where the Bollinger Diff(20,1.5) is less than 0.5 20 days ago
and Bollinger Diff(20,1.5) is less than 0.5 12 days ago
and Bollinger Diff(20,1.5) is less than 0.5 11 days ago
and Bollinger Diff(20,1.5) is less than 0.5 10 days ago
and Bollinger Diff(20,1.5) is less than 0.5 9 days ago
and Bollinger Diff(20,1.5) is less than 0.5 8 days ago
and Bollinger Diff(20,1.5) is less than 0.5 7 days ago
and Bollinger Diff(20,1.5) is less than 0.5 6 days ago
and Bollinger Diff(20,1.5) is less than 0.5 5 days ago
and Bollinger Diff(20,1.5) is less than 0.5 4 days ago
and Bollinger Diff(20,1.5) is less than 0.5 3 days ago

and close has been increasing for the last 2 days
and volume has been increasing for the last 2 days
and ma(10) has been increasing for the last 2 days
and cma(adj_vol, 20) > 400000 and close > 1
and draw ma(30)
and draw Bollinger Bands(20,1.5)
and chart-length is 22 days
and do not draw Adj_Vol
and do not draw cma(adj_vol, 15)

Four -

Unless I am missing the boat, this just tells me what the Bollinger width was 5 days ago. I'm looking for the bollinger width being less than some number for every day a period of xx to yy days ago. I could probably do this with a number of lines, like

and Bollinger width 6 days ago
and Bollinger width 7 days ago, etc., etc.

but I'm thinking there must be a better coding solution. Any thoughts?
