I may be interested in exploring the “Ichimoku Cloud.” Are there any postings here on that subject?

Curious... what will this report get you?


Filter Exchange · Wall Street Journal (65-day MA charts) on Markets Digest page

I know that many stock-reporting services typically include a 50-day MA chart. But for some reason, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) uses 65-day (13-week) MA charts, displaying the S&P 500, Dow 30, and Nasdaq. Anyway I have included a simple SF script below that is good for either the Table or Charts output in StockFetcher.

Comments on my script
1) I use a Symlist of SPY, DIA, and QQQ (even though QQQ is the Nasdaq 100 and ONEQ is the Nasdaq). Big traders, I suspect, use the QQQ due to heavy trading volume. Should you desire, you can easily add more stock symbols in the Symlist.

2) I use a Relative Moving Average calculation in the script, i.e., an MA divided by another MA.

3) I multiply the result by 100 to produce a number that shows more exactness in result.

4) A result of exactly 100 would mean that Price = 65-day MA. Price and MA(1) are the same, but I use MA(1) in the script in case you would want to easily modify it to be -- for example -- MA(15) / MA(65) or MA(50) / MA(200). I alternatively show you how Close/MA(65) works if all you wanted to do was use the equivalent of MA(1).

5) Run this script on 9/1/2017, and you'll get these results:
QQQ ... 102.92, which means Price [same as MA(1)] is 2.92% higher than MA(65)
DIA ..... 101.76
SPY..... 101.27
So, QQQ on 9/1/2017 is stronger than DIA and SPY. Look back 1 month to get 1-month ago results, etc.

That's it for this simple "101" script.

Thank you, Spauken...

I think this will provide the roots to what I'm researching. I'll work with it, and get back. Again... a BIG thank you!

Is it possible to script (in SF) to compare the 8-day SMA "open" to the 8-day SMA "close" of a stock's price? I attended a meeting last Friday, and this was shown on a Fidelity chart. Doable in SF, including table and graph?

SafeTrade... I shall explore your suggestion, along with a new line...

Draw Angledeg

... right after your line of "Add column angledeg"

I don't think I asked my question appropriately. Basically, I believe that has a price run (graphed) at a 45 degree angle (slope) may be sustainable. But a stock graph (slope) of 75 degrees is not sustainable (over the long term)... I would say a stock at a 75 degree angle, thus, might be a worthy "short" candidate.

How would I script in SF to include a filter to find stocks that lie somewhere between 45 and 90 degrees (slope), looking back 90 days?

I hope I asked the question more clearly... or maybe it's just a dumb question on my part?!

Thank you.

I am doing some reading on "bubbles" and, accordingly, I would like to write a SF script that would filter for me (produce) stocks that fit between 45% and 90% angle. Is slope and angle the same thing, or am I way off?!

If they're the same thing, what 1 or 2 lines of SF script would I include to produce the stocks I'm attempting to find?

Thank you. (I have never done slopes in my SF scripting).

Using the "set" command in SF, can you divide one variable by another variable?
