Hi,
I noticed that when I clicked the magnify glass it did not give all the code in the filter. So I copied and pasted the entire code into create filter and got the message "Your StockFetcher filter exceeds filter performance restrictions."



General Discussion · 52 week high

Hello TRO,
I have been looking at this filter “52 week high” and I was playing around with it and in doing so it became apparent that I am misunderstanding some very basic and probably very important filtering facts. I was interested in stocks that had reached a new 52 week high within the last 2 weeks, so I changed some of the variables to the following:

set{cnt52wh, count(weekly high reached a new 52 week high,2)}

set{HHb,days(52 week High is above 52 week High 1 day ago,10)}
set{HHa,days(52 week High is below 52 week High 1 day ago,10)}
set{HixHi, HHa - HHb}

show stocks where weekly high reached a new 52 week high
and cnt52wh 1 day ago below 1
and chart-display is weekly

add column hixhi

I had expected to get fewer stocks because I was limiting the new highs to the last 2 weeks rather than the last 39 weeks. To my surprise I got back many more stocks 326 stocks.versus 69 stocks with the 39 week parameter (run 05/14/06). Can you walk me through how the filter works. What I am trying to get are the stocks that reached a new 52 week high in last 2 weeks and then your count count for declining and increasing days of high.

A couple of the stocks that show up with the “last 2 week” parameter are cup and ms. These seem they should show up with the “last 39 week” parameter but does not.

Thanks.

JB

Hi TRO,

I am still confused. What I am trying to get are:

>>>> stocks that had reached a new 52 week high within the last 2 weeks

So the following line in the filter likely needs to be adjusted and I’m not sure how

/* that haven't done so in the past 2 weeks */
and cnt52wh 1 day ago equal 0.

Thanks.

I like what I believe is the capability of this filter. Thanks to you for it.

As a twist, what coding would have to change so that it filtered for:

>>>>> Stocks that reached a new 52 week high 1 or 2 weeks ago

Then have the number of new daily highs since the the high was reached? (I would assume this would be 10 or less)

Thanks again for your patience with me on this.

JB

Hi TRO,
There is probably nothing wrong with the filter just my understanding of it.

In any case, two stocks, by way of example, that reached a new 52 week high last week are MS and CUP. Neither are picked up by the filter.

Thanks again for working on this.



Filter Exchange · add column 5 day slope of OBV

Hello all,
How would I write a line of code to get the 5 day slope of OBV into a column?
I would expect a number less than 1 but I get a number in millions.

Thanks

Filter Exchange · close 2 days ago is 2% or more higher than the close 3 days ago?

What would the filter terminology be to identify stocks where the close 2 days ago is 2% or more higher than the close 3 days ago?

I tried:
Show stocks where Close gained more than 2 percent between 3 days ago and 2 days ago

This did not work.

Thanks
JB

Thanks nikoschopen. That is a very clean set-up.

I thought I'd try a slight variation and substituted Low for Close in the filter code. Results were not accurate. Would you post code using Low that works? And maybe the reason why Low does not work in the code which code works for Close?

You've provided good answers and explanations on this message board since I've been here. Thank-you.



Filter Exchange · Comparative Rel Strength Specific Dates

Is it possible to do a comparative relative strength test against the S&P 500 using specific dates?

For example: Stocks whose comparative relative strength is above 1.0 compared to the S&P 500 from 11/02/07 to 11/27/07?

Thanks
JB

Thanks Max. Let me elaborate and clarify.

I would like the comparison period to be over the 25 days for the time period 11/02/07 to 11/27/07. In generic terms, I would like to find stocks that out performed the SPX 500 over the 25 day time frame 11/02/07 to 11/27/07.

Merry Christmas to you, and to all.
