General Discussion · 52 week high
msg #43720
5/14/2006 8:17:38 PM

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.

Hi Rump and others,

"If you ever see anything else like that, please alert us! "

I’ll be glad to post any other findings.

In truth, I found the Yahoo bb postings reading your post re:water company, ran your first filter, many hits and so did an internet search and found the Yahoo bb postings. So in truth you deserve most of the credit for “piquing the interest”. I just did some leg work.

FWIW, I’m admirer of your skills with SF and use several of your filters with a few additions to fit my personal style. I’m not now as much a trader as I am surmising you are. I’m a working stiff so can only get online to check options/stocks a couple of time a day. I adjust for this using larger company stocks and holding longer. Maybe someday good enough to make a living trading. I’ll keep reading posts here and learn.

See the dates. These are from a Yahoo bb. Must be recycling this one.

Water Stock Identity?
by: chuckles_85712 07/28/05 08:40 pm
Msg: 3391 of 4815

I seem to be the target of promoters. One is trying to sell me a water stock which IPO'd in 1995 and currently pays a 0.1150 dividend quarterly. According to him it has just signed a "blockbuster 20-deal with the Bahamas". It's "extremely small" and "trades for less than 0.004% othe value of Google's stock". A "$10,000 investment in 1995 would now be worth $110,000". Anyone have any ideas as to its identity? TIA.

Filter Exchange · difference between change in periods.

I need some help with something I am sure is very easy – difference between change in periods.
For example, given the data below.
Days ago....60.....30.....1

Change between 60 and 30 days ago 10 to 11 = 1.100
Change between 30 and 1 days ago 11 to 9 = .818181 ie 9/11
Difference in Change most recent 30 days to prior = -.28 (.8181 – 1.1)

I was thinking that SmROC might be good for this. For an example,how would the filter be written using SmROC(1,1)

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 · Need Help Creating A filter of Several Components
msg #36271
6/10/2005 5:35:33 PM

I am trying to set up a filter to do the following:
If OBV ema(10) has been increasing for 3 days give 1 point
If OBV has been increasing for 3 days give 1 point
If MACD Fast Line(12,26) is above the MACD Slow Line(12,26) give 1 point
If 3 day slope of MACD Fast Line(12,26) is above 0 give 1 point
If MACD Fast Line(12,26) is above 0 give 1 point

For example--- if a stock’s OBV ema(10) had been increasing for 3 days AND the OBV had been increasing for 3 days AND the MACD Fast Line(12,26) was above the MACD Slow Line(12,26) BUT the 3 day slope of MACD Fast Line(12,26) was NOT above 0 and the MACD Fast Line(12,26) was NOT above 0-- The stock would earn 3 points. If the components could be shown individually with a 1 for passing the test and a 0 (zero) for failing that would be helpful. I could then sort on the individual tests and the cumulative total. I believe I have seen some filters that are able to use this format.

Thanks so much for your help.


General Discussion · Why is crossing of MACD Zero Line Important?
msg #35987

Hello All,

I've been reading about MACD and most sources site crossing the zero line as an indicator of strength. I don't understand this. Why does crossing the zero line mean anything different than a crossover of the moving averages -- whether below zero or above zero?
