nm, i see now the way sf shows up or down volume is just based on if the close is higher than the close one day ago... i was hoping it had something more intraday to it

how can i seperate volume into up volume and down volume

i'd like to make a filter that derives an indicator based on up volume days and down volume days, in sf2 i see it right there in the key for volume it says "up volume, down volume"

the up/down volume is not correlated to up or down days necessarily , right?
i'd like to think it is based on uptick to downtick volume, can someone clarify this?

c'mon stockfetcher staff
theres so much potential in the SF program just waiting for your code to awaken it's full power

let's say i have

set{ndays, count(volume > 1000000, 50)}

i want to use the number from ndays to plug into anotherphrase
i would like to for instance use ndays in place of a static number in this phrase

and draw close ndays high on plot close

it would be super useful if there is a way to do this, is there a way?
or could we somehow persuade stockfetcher staff to make this possible?

thank you!

General Discussion · Have we truly bottomed?

Some thoughts...

Here's a chart of the S&P 500 since around the dawn of nuclear energy (aka modern times).
It's in log scale so you can compare the percentage moves to eachother.
It is a monthly chart and there is an ema of 40 months, also shown is an rsi of 20 months.

It is easy to see that typically the monthly ema(40) is the support for the bottom of each "crash". Of the 16 or so major dips in this chart I see the monthly rsi(20) dipping below 40 - six times. In other words 1 out of 3 crashes have been brutal where as the other 2 have been pretty melow (index wise that is).

So here we are, touching the monthly ema(40), touching 40 on the monthly rsi(20). In the history of the S&P 500 these are major support areas, and when they are broken through is when the big drops have hit. These are ballpark statistics here but on average a market crash lasts 6 months and drops an average of 30% from the year high. We went -20% and bounced up from there on Jan 23rd, now the market is in a tug of war of sorts.

My personal take is that if SPY can't break below $110 ish in the next 2 months ( $110 would be on par with the average 30% retracement of most market crashes) then it would be safe to say that we've bottomed, particularly so if this monthly rsi(20) jumps back up above 50.

The dollar reaching such a major low is disoncerting for sure, the US is in hot water - and a lot of stocks that aren't uniquely US are feeling the market panic. My guess is that once we pull off a bottom the best move would be to invest in stocks that are major global players which have been caught up in this mess but aren't at all part of the mess.

Google spreadsheets and also Excel provide a way to reference cell values from the web. I just put in a request w/ stockfetcher to see if they can make a similar function available.

This code in google spreadsheets would for instance give me eps growth data from reuters for whatever symbol i put into cell B3.
=Index(ImportHtml(""&B3, "table",1),3,2)

General Discussion · Custom LRI
msg #58183
12/15/2007 8:30:32 PM

No that is not close to what I am asking about...

LRI, also known as moving linear regression..

The LRI function provided by stockfetcher is great, I just want to have an option to feed it custom data in the same way CEMA and CMA work..

does that make sense?

I asked stockfetcher about this sometime ago but am loosing patience so was wondering if there was anyone out there who knew how to make a Custom LRI through a lot of set commands and math...
