*** Advanced Feature ***

Introducing new user-defined variables for your screens on StockFetcher. This is an advanced feature that allows you to create complex computations based on indicators and other variables. Below is a quick example demonstrating the syntax for this new feature:

set{dayrange,high - low}
set{closeposition, close - low}
set{closeratio, closeposition / dayrange}

show stocks where the closeratio is below 0.05

The example above finds stocks where the closing price was in the bottom 5% of the trading range for the day.

Click here to read more about user-defined variables.

Additionally, you can store common variables on the "Variables" section of the "Settings" page.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or comments about this feature!

Thank you, Support
