I really think Stockfetcher 2.0 is a big improvment.

oops, I missed the "of prior days close" in your request. The example above is for todays open and close.

Here is a built in way to do this:

opcl% between -5% and 15%
and add column opcl%

Filter Exchange · The “Volume is greater then …” is severely flawed

Thanks for the explanation. I am not sure I agree with your assumptions, like trading $1000 trades, but I do appreciate what you are trying to glean from the data points.

My suggestion would be you should use "Typical Value" instead of average price for your calculation. I believe that would tend to give you a little more accurate view of what was more likely spent for those shares.

Also, I think it would be more accurate to do a day by day multiplication of typical value and volume and average those values.

I hope that helps,

Can you please explain why that formula is better than using one of the following:

> [ ] = is for what purpose?
The word fetcher and the square brace makes the filter able to be clicked.

> count(ma(50) <= MA(50) 1 day ago,20) above 15
count simply counts the number of times an expression is true within a given period of time. 20 days in this case.

so count is counting the number of times the 50 day simple moving average is below previous days average.

> above 15 = ?
This is looking for the count to be 15 times in last 20 days

So simply this wants the 50 day moving average to be decreasing 15 days out of 20.

I hope that helps,

Filter Exchange · Is there a limit to the number or type of characters we can use to name the set command variables

I use the following rules although stockfetcher seems loose to enforce these in their lexer and more strict in other cases:

- Variable names should start with [a-z] or [A-Z] to be valid.
- Variable name can contain [0-9] or _

You may find other cases that work most of the time.

Since you have used both MetaStock and Amibroker I would be interested to know what you found limiting about Metastock and why Amibroker is better.

After looking at the Amibroker website one thing is it is very cheap which is a plus.

I am not sure what you consider too expensive but A really great backtest tool is MetaStock. See
