I believe StockFetcher uses "less than or equal to" and "greater than or equal to" inequalities in the syntax for increasing, decreasing, above, and below queries, instead of "less than" or "greater than".

Hello Carmen,

This looks to be ok...

Fetcher[Show stocks where OBV(30) crossed above EMA of OBV(30) 1 day ago and price is above 1 and average volume(90) is above 100000]

General Discussion · MACD Crossover with 'Good' Slope and wide separation

If you think of a clock as a degree wheel, then 1:30 would be 45 degrees from center, which is a slope of 1. So for the 1 o'clock position, the slope would be a little more than 1, and a little less for 2 o'clock. So I would word the filter to state the slope of the MACD fast line is above 0.8, or whatever you like. As for the separation between MACD fast and slow lines, I would try to use a query for MACD histogram - maybe MACD histogram reached a new X day high.

Hope that helps a little...

It may be a CUSIP number or something like that, but I could be wrong. I've seen stocks that went private or liquidated in some form or another, and are now identified by the CUSIP number, like ANTV did last year. To my knowledge they aren't really tradeable to new shareholders. I had ANTV short last year when it went away, and had to cover the round lots on Instinet (I actually still "have" the odd lot left). I would just overlook it...

I would also like to see monthly data, and would welcome quarterly and yearly data as well. One step at a time...

I did a little experimenting with the idea of a volume weighted stochastic after I read the posts on this thread and got a bit interested in the idea. I took on balance volume values and applied a version of the basic stochastic fast %k formula to them, in order to get a percentage that was an apples to apples comparison of the stochastic fast %k. ((today's OBV close - lowest OBV in %k periods)/(highest OBV in %k periods - lowest OBV in %k periods))*100, where the %k period value I used was 5. I added that result to the stochastic fast %k value of the same day and divided by 2 to get an average. I used OBV because it considers up volume versus down volume as it's primary function. The results were not smoothed at all, and they will always plot between 0 and 100%. I plotted results for a span of time on INTC. The OBV Stochastic average was a bit more volatile than basic stochastic fast %k values, but I also noticed that the OBV-stochastic was usually divergent to the basic stochastic fast %k by a day or two before a "major" up or down trend. In other words, the OBV-stochastic seems to turn in favor of the upcoming trend before the regular stochastic does. However, for most people, this divergence may make little difference, as the divergence is not based on price action alone, and a very small decline or rise in price from one day to the next can skew results as the total volume for the day will be considered as positive or negative for OBV. It looks promising if one were inclined to program it to automatically calculate and plot as other developed indicators do. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

I take it you mean CCI... here are some very simple examples

Fetcher[show stocks where CCI(14) is more than 50 above CCI(14) 1 day ago]

Fetcher[show stocks where CCI(14) is more than 50 below CCI(14) 1 day ago]

Fetcher[show stocks where close has been decreasing for the last 3 days]

that's the simplest way... if you haven't downloaded the stockfetcher manual yet, you should, as it will tell you most of all you'll ever need to know about writing the filters

Here's one way to word it...

Fetcher[show stocks where ema(14) reached a new 5 day low 1 day ago and ema(14) is above ema(14) 1 day ago]

Also, you may want to experiment with ways of getting the matches just before the ema(14) upturn, but when it still may be imminent. Maybe try a filter for a decreasing ema(14) with a bullish crossover of two shorter term ema's or something.
